FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS AND BEE SHOULD TRULY BE HAPPY!

I COPY THIS FROM FR. Z:

Fr. Phillips EXONERATED!

You remember the controversy that surrounded Fr. Frank Phillips of the Canons of St. John Cantius in Chicago?  HERE
The Review Board concluded that Fr. Phillips did not violate any secular criminal, civil or canon law.
From the site Protect Our Priests:
Fr. Phillips Exonerated
We have confirmation that after several weeks the Congregation of the Resurrection has indeed concluded its hearings and investigation of the accusations directed against Father Phillips.
An independent Review Board of three public-spirited leaders from the Chicago area, who are not members of St. John Cantius Church, was constituted. Thereafter, the Review Board interviewed the detractors and several witnesses, persons who personally know the accusers, and other individuals who came forward to testify in defense of Father Phillips’ integrity. In accordance with directives given by Card. Cupich the members of the Canons Regular were not interviewed..

Bee here:

WHOOOOOO HOOOOO!!!! Thank you, Lord Jesus!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Praise and glory be to you, O Most Holy Lord!!!!! Thank you O Beautiful Blessed Mother, and all you Saints, especially St. John Cantius, who interceded for him.

Thank you for posting this Fr. McD. I have tears in my eyes right now. This has been a difficult ordeal for all of us, we who believed he never do such a thing, and had no information but simply had to pray.

I pray now Fr. Phillips will be restored to his former position. If not, then that he may return to the Canons Regular.

God bless you all.

Deo Gratias, Alleluia.

I have known Father Phillips for almost 30 years and never believed these allegations.

Bee, I hope St. John Cantius will throw a huge celebration for this wonderful man of God.

Bee,

So pleased for you, the parish, and the Canons Regular. I pray that the Chicago Tribune will herald Father Phillip's exxoneration and that Cardinal Cupich restores Father to his parish and role in the Canons Regular.

Obviously a cover-up orchestrated by the Damask Mafia. Someone, somewhere, has the goods on each and every member of that "independent" review board. Dig a little deeper and you'll find the fingerprints of Burke, Sarah, and Schneider all over this travesty...

TJM said...

Mirror is that you Kavanaugh? This statement has the scent of "Eau de Kavanaugh"

Henry said...

Is this the only case during Cupich's tenure of a Chicago pastor being suspended because of alleged behavior with adult males?

I am simply a Mirror.

You are seeing, though probably not acknowledging, yourself in me.

Henry said...

"Mirror is that you Kavanaugh?"

Sounds more like someone off his rocker. "The fingerprints of Burke, Sarah, and Schneider?" C'mon. What else are those voices in your head telling you?

Mirror said...

Henry, TJM, and others, "Mutato nomine de te fabula narrator."

TJM said...

Mirror, is that all the Latin you know?

Well, the other shoe has dropped....

In a letter (inserted as a separate page in the bulletin) from the Provincial Superior of the Congregation of the Resurrection, we parishioners of St. John Cantius in Chicago were informed that the Archdiocese of Chicago will not be restoring Fr. Frank Phillips faculties for public ministry, that he will not return as pastor of St. John Cantius, nor as superior of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius.

You can read the letter here. http://www.cantius.org/go

No other explanation was given, no other comments were made.

God's will be done.

God bless.
Bee

Bee,

That's what liberal fascists do.Cupich isn't fit to tie Father Phillip's shoes, let alone run an Archdiocese, which is continuing to fail under Cupich's "leadership." This confirms my decision NOT to contribute to the Archdiocese annual appeal as long as this guy is Archbishop.

I will continue to prayer for Father Phillips and the good peeople of St. John Cantius.

Thank you TJM and everyone for your prayers. It's what we need most right now...

God bless.

P.S. A while back I asked for prayers for Mary C., who was dying. Mary went to meet Our Lord on May 20th, Pentecost Sunday. She had just turned 91 in March. Thank you for your prayers.

Here's the thing. As much as we want to believe our friends and loved ones have gone "to meet the Lord" when they die, they may very well have gone to another situation.

Dr McDonald often comments that too many funerals end up being "canonisations" with the deceased being praised to the high heaven's.

"You loved one is not suffering anymore but is with Jesus in heaven" is not necessarily true.
