Weakland on the Feast:

"Oh ... that's ... that's Jewish. That's very Jewish. Did you read the first reading where it says that mothers take care of their sons and it doesn't even mention daughters? That 'Jewish mother' thing goes way, way back. And here is Jesus in his Jewish background saying, you know, 'Take care of Mom for me.' Oh, wow!"

    I am certain that Jesus knew what His mission was. Rembo, on the other hand...

    Weakland should have been de-frocked, excommunicated and put in jail. Instead he was retired with a golden parachute and luxurous surroundings. What is the message here? That a Bishop who conducts deviant sexual acts and uses Church donations to cover up his trechery is still part of the "good ol boys," still allowed to lead the faithful astray? And we wonder why the Church is held in such low regard by those who we seek to convert.

    Italiana, that was somebody else. I think he's probably still there.

    It has been said that his name is his legacy. I concur.

    This pathetic weak man is what we have for an Archbishop of the Catholic Church. This mindless drivel is what we hear from a man chosen to be an apostle of Jesus Christ after the likes of Sts. Peter and Paul. I cannot express my comtempt enough. It's men like Wealkand who continue to destroy the Catholic Church. I thought he was safely tucked away in a SC monastery after his homosexual scandal. Obviously he didn't pray or do enough penance.

    I hope, for Archbishop Weakland's sake, that he doesn't find himself saying in the afterlife: "What in the HELL was I thinking?"

    You can almost hear the bongos and the congregation applauding with fingers snaps. At least he didn't say "groovy" or "hey, cats."

    This is one of the most blasphemous homilies I have ever heard. It is not remotely Catholic, but totally naturalistic and modernist! Some more excerpts: 1. “I am one of those who doesn’t think Jesus knew what His mission was.” 2. “Mary must have had her doubts about this kid she was raising.” 3. Regarding Jesus’ response in the Temple. That “sounds smart-alecky” and “He should have gotten a [smack] for that.” People in Milwaukee valuing their souls need to run for cover ASAP!

    Rembert Weakland takes the Electric Kool Aid Acid Test and obtains a mark that meets expectations.
