The Boys of Sunday, Week 1

Here are the Boys of Sunday week 1 incidents of Catholic orthodoxy:

Links for Archbishop Dolan:
Link 1 - Defense of traditional Catholic marriage from Dolan's blog. Quotes: "We are not anti anybody; we are pro-marriage. The definition of marriage is a given: it is a lifelong union of love and fidelity leading, please God, to children, between one man and one woman." and "Not every desire is a right."

Links for Bishop Morlino:
Link 1 - Transcript of homily from ordination Mass. Quote: "being a close friend of Mary is essential to undertaking the work of the priesthood with joy"
Link 2 - Fired heretic receives $10,000 from Voice of the Faithful to create a documentary detailing her firing by Bishop Morlino. Lengthy quote to get an idea what is going on: "A Beloit woman fired from a Catholic parish in 2009 for advocating views contrary to the church - charges she has denied - received a $10,000 grant on Thursday to fund a documentary based in part on her experiences. ... She was dismissed after a meeting with Morlino in which she refused to recant her thesis - written for her master's degree in divinity from Milwaukee's St. Francis de Sales Seminary - that challenged the church's noninclusive language in the Catholic Mass and its ban on women's ordination. Kolpack has unsuccessfully appealed her dismissal twice to the Vatican." Definite progressive throwing a nutty. A dissident organization funding a smear documentary against Morlino should be quite valuable.

Links for Archbishop Gomez:
Link 1 - Column on nurturing priestly vocations. Quote: "Our daily prayer for vocations must be matched by actions and attitudes that help foster a culture in which Christ’s invitation can be heard and in which this invitation “makes sense.”"
Link 2 - Diocesan press release from the Archbishop promoting compassion for illegal immigrants. Quote: "Congress and the President have a responsibility to come together to enact immigration reform that corrects this humanitarian problem, providing undocumented immigrants with the opportunity to earn permanent residency and eventual citizenship, and reflecting America’s proud history as an hospitable society"

I leave the assignment of points to the league commissioner. The Boys of Sunday are at your mercy.


  1. I come up with nine points - 5 points for the VOTF story about Bp Morlino, and 1 point for the others. Sound right to you?

  2. No idea. Again, our team is at your mercy. :-)

  3. FYI I believe Bishop Morlino has a Facebook page, on which he makes personal notes.

  4. Was not aware of that. I'll have to look into it.

    Btw, Larry, I added a Dolan audio homily. They posted it kind of late, so I'm not sure if I should apply this toward week 1 or 2?

  5. Dr. K - if it was posted today, the 16th, count it towards week 2. If they posted it yesterday, and you missed it...too bad so sad.

    So overall B-of-S gets 9 points.

  6. It was posted today so I'll hold on to it for this coming week's scoring.
