Club Jadot Watch – 3rd Edition… and More!

November 14th, 2009, Promulgated by Dr. K

Club Jadot today witnesses the resignation of one of its eight remaining members (no, not Bishop Clark!). Bishop John Michael D’Arcy, the prelate in charge of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, has had his resignation accepted by Pope Benedict XVI. He is currently two years over the mandatory retirement age of 75. Many will probably remember D’Arcy for his heroic efforts this year to mandate the return of all tabernacles in his diocese to the center of churches. Unlike some other members of Club Jadot, he will be missed. Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of Harrisburg will take D’Arcy’s place as leader of Fort Wayne-South Bend.

Here is the revised Club Jadot membership as of November 14th:

In other bishop news, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has a new leader. Bishop Jerome E. Listecki takes over the seat of Archbishop Timothy Dolan, now the chief prelate of the Archdiocese of New York. Milwaukee is still recovering from the train wreck caused by the retired Archbishop Rembert Weakland.

    Someone in the past brought up a good point by asking the question, why the parishioners in the Diocese of Rochester have to carry such a heavy cross with Bishop Clark as their bishop?

    Hopefully, we will see the light of day with a new Bishop. Otherwise, we will continue to watch the Diocese of Rochester die right before our eyes.

    A note to all of the "Bishops" who are stealing money from the diocesan and parish coffers: We know who you are and where you live.

    But although they retire, they can still wreak havoc behind the scenes. And the apparatus for destroying the church is still in operation.
    It will take a lion of a bishop to remove all the evil brought on by 30 years of dancing with the devil. And don't forget, he , the bishop, has corrupted his priests and the new bishop will have a huge problem on his hands
