Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church


Call to Action 2012 Keynote Speaker

November 11th, 2012, Promulgated by Dr. K

In the previous post we explored Fr. Spilly’s promotion of the dissident Call to Action conference. Take a close look at the list of speakers Father was so kind to provide for us, specifically Patricia Fresen whom he references using the innocent sounding title “theologian”. Ms. Fresen was the keynote speaker at this year’s CTA. So, who is she? Apparently Fresen is a fake female bishop who helped establish the “Association of Roman Catholic Women-priests.”

The title of her address was “Less Pope, More Jesus.”

The bishopess Patricia Fresen

It makes Father’s attendance at, and endorsement of, CTA all the more disturbing.

UPDATE 11/12/12:

Here are some choice quotes from Ms. Fresen’s CTA speech.

1. “The present pope and the previous one are in schism … After all, a general council is the highest authority in the church, higher than the pope”
2. “The only way as I discovered in South Africa to bring about real systemic change is to do something against the system, and that’s what we’re doing [referencing the A.R.C.W.P.]. We claim equality and justice for women”

    Cowardly on Padre Spilly’s part.

  2. avatar annonymouse says:

    Blatantly deceitful as well.

    Would it be uncharitable to note that the biological solution ought to solve this entire problem not long after I finish this beer?

    The aging of the Vatican 2 hijackers: Rainbow stole. Cross without the (male) corpus. Scriptura as the sola prop-a. Or, perhaps, Eliot’s words: “Headpiece filled with straw….quiet and meaningless as … rats’ feet over broken glass…Paralysed force, gesture without motion….Remember us—if at all—not as lost violent souls, but only as the hollow (wo)men…This is the way the world ends not with a bang but a whimper….”

    Just last night I tried to explain to a friend
    that many parishes in this diocese use the
    word Catholic but are not really because
    they do not believe The Faith.

    Hopefully, my friend will go to this site today
    and discover incriminating evidence.

    Thanks, Dr. K, for helping me help my friend.

    Ah, she looks just like a well-tempered, well-groomed bishop. Where is her diocese… what “Church” is she the leader of? Doesn’t Womanchurch (or is it “Womynchyrch”?) see the contradictions here… a contradiction that goes beyond her femaleness. Whatever her pedigree in “apostolic succession” and ignoring for the moment that she isn’t male, she is no different from the schismatic Lefebvristes. Aside from not being in communion with Peter (Rome), she is not even in communion with the other bishops of our universal Church. Heck, she’s probably not in communion with that fake who “ordained” Mary Ramerman and Denise Donato and who knows whom else. Do these fake bishops have world-wide synods?

    Was Denise Donato kicked out of Spiritus Christi? Does her little sect have any members?

    Here’s her notice of excommunication:

    I should think our new bishop will be quite interested and concerned that he has priests who partake of such activities. An end to this sort of thing, in our diocese at least, is soon coming. Praise God.

  8. avatar Kevin says:

    So she’s a sedevacantist? How much weirder can these people get? This can only lead to them being conclavists and electing their own pope.

  9. avatar Mike says:

    Another story on that CTA meeting notes that

    “… members loudly cheered the re-election of President Barack Obama …”

    Kinda says it all, doesn’t it.

  10. avatar annonymouse says:

    From the newspaper article – “The conference included communion liturgy presided over by women.”

    These people are in open rebellion. They are all latae sententiae excommunicated by their actions. INCLUDING our own Father Spilly and God knows how many other proud (and I don’t mean that in a good way) DoR representatives who attended and participated. Bishop Cunningham should be aware of Father Spilly’s brazen participation so that he may be relieved of his pastoral duties.
