And it isn't going to be pretty.
Fr. Tom is well known for his ardent and vocal prolife beliefs and his radio show "In Season and Out of Season". Apparently EWTN carries Fr. Tom's show. Eventhough Fr. Tom is a bit of a charismatic but we don't hold that against him.
Apparently Cardinal O'Malley has decided that it's payback time. Fr. Tom made the unfortunate, and probably career-ending mistake of opposing Cardinal Sean's attempt to sign a contract with Centene, an abortion-providing health insurance company. Unfortunately, the Boston Archdiocese lost money (perhaps millions according to my fellow warrioress in the trenches, Carol McKinley) and the opportunity to sell its soul, and give away gratis any integrity they may have had left.
Fr. Tom has been summoned to the Chancery to discuss his "mental health".
The tactics don't change. The villains never come up with anything new.
The Mass begins with the phrase:
"Judge me, O God, and distinguish my cuase against an ungodly nation: deliver me from the unjust and deceitful man."
Somehow I don't think this meeting will make the Cardinal's blog.
I don't think the public relations firm employed (and paid handsomely) by the Archdiocese of Boston would recommend it.
