Holy Orders:

Back in February of 2020, Kerri O’Brien of ABC8 News in Richmond came to visit St. Joseph’s in Martinsville, to report on the situation.

They have nominated Kerri and her producer for an Emmy Award for the report! Congratulations. Hope you win it, Kerri 🙂

  1. Imagine an unmarried straight man who’s something of a sexual compulsive, and who works near the top of a large corporation. Not the CEO, but one of the key executives. The company gives him funds to hire an extra secretary to help with his workload. To be sure, he has enough clout to hire whomever he wants, and you have to think they won’t hire anyone unless he’s happy with the candidate. Whom would he want to hire? The answer is an unmarried woman to whom he’s attracted and who he has reason to believe will entertain his impure advances, right?

    Now imagine an unmarried gay man who’s a sexual predator. Same scenario, but instead of a corporate executive, he’s a cardinal of the Catholic Church. Here, too, his power and clout are virtually unchecked. You have to think that he has final if not complete control over the selection of his new secretary. Whom would he want to hire as his new secretary?

    You, Bishop Barry, have got some explaining to do, sir. Could be that you’re totally innocent, absolutely, but it looks shady enough that the baptized who entrust their spiritual lives to your care deserve a complete account, don’t you think?
