Coach, thanks so much for chatting with me today. What role did the Catholic sacraments play in your life and career?

People’s beliefs differ from one another, and all that. Everyone understands faith somewhat differently. But I am so grateful for the Roman Catholic faith with which I was raised. My dad didn’t go to Church, but my mom was a terrific Catholic – a fervent convert to the faith – and always saw that we went to Mass and Catholic school. The Sisters of Saint Joe taught us so much at St. Paddy’s Church and school in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania. The nuns, they were really tough – they’d hit you if need be – and they taught us everything we needed. It was really great. I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

So the Catholic faith was always very important to you?

“Definitely. I altar served throughout grade school. Actually, I even served a couple Masses at college at Pitt. Like I said, the nuns were tough, but it was really good for me. Everything has changed because they don’t get the vocations anymore. They need the vocations in order to do what they have to do.”

But having spent nearly a week reading slowly through all 1,400 pages of the report, I can say I was wrong. All of these things exist. When Blessed Pope Paul VI said that the "smoke of Satan had entered the Church" half a century ago, he meant it quite literally
Unfortunately when confronted with this smoke Paul fanned the flames and left a trail of gasoline throughout the entire house by allowing Vatican II to be unleashed on the world.

I live in Kalamazoo. I sat after Mass while Bishop Bradley's letter to the congregations was read. It was a good and humble letter. Bradley is a good man. We have had a full-out program in the Diocese of Kalamazoo for several years now, attempting to offer support and counsel to victims or priests or whomever needs it. It is headed by my former pastor Ken Schmitt --- a very spiritual man, a great guy, and a dutiful soul.

As I sat listening to Bishop Bradley's fine letter, I reflected that fine as it was, it paled in comparison to my current pastor's (Dan Hyman) deeply heart-felt words (spoken after a brief homily) pouring out his sadness and sense of betrayal that he was wracked with by his "brothers" in the clergy (especially in Pennsylvania) whether he knew any of them or not (most are in fact now dead, or at least removed from their duties.) Dan almost was crying.

What's my point? Burn-the-Bastards --- fine. But don't smear the really good men like Dan Hyman and Ken Schmitt while doing it. I've never had a priest at St. Toms Student Parish (associated with WMU and Kalamazoo College work/service) that wasn't a walking saint. The last two bishops have been good guys too. My current housemate is a retired priest and former chaplain of the Sisters of Saint Joseph --- and totally a walking saint.

America has always wanted to smear and burn down the Catholic Church. A few "priests" need it and a few "policies" need it. We at Notre Dame catch the same unbalanced burn-the-holier-than-thou-bastards-down prejudice in case anyone on IE has forgotten (for the exact same "cultural" base reasons.) I refuse to sanction a world in which either the Church or Notre Dame is burnt to the ground.

This is a bombshell. Vigano's allegations are detailed, easily verifiable and, based on my reading on the subject, very plausible. For instance, Benedict's sudden resignation makes much more sense in light of this account than without it. And people in Benedict's camp have already corroborated certain key details here.

This is unprecedented. Not sure what happens next. Pray for the Church.

Is there any verifiable evidence of Pope Benedict handing out those sanctions? Just trying to make sense of this all.
