Austrian Uprising: Cardinal Schönborn Makes the Work of the Devil.

This would make a proper doormat inscription for the Archdiocese of Vienna.

Today marks one month from the unspeakable call to open revolt from more than 250 Austrian priests. Including the deacons, their number exceeds 300.

Now please consider this:

1. Austria has around 4200 priests (not bad at all  for a country of 8.2m inhabitants. But I digress… ), which means that at the moment around 6% of the Austrian clergy is openly heretical. 

2. The list of the members of the “Pfarrer-Initiative” is not updated anymore. This might have to do with the desire not to embarrass Cardinal Schönborn, who might be forced by the Vatican to do something when it is clear that the movement is growing further.

3. An anonymous letter is enough to have a priest immediately suspended. An open call to disobedience and adhesion to blatant heresy isn’t, if Cardinal Schönborn is your archbishop.

4. Besides being the head of the Austrian bishop’s conference, Schönborn is the Archbishop of Vienna. This means that (if the information found on the internet is accurate) he is the superior of both Helmut Schueller, the priest vastly recognised as the leader of the movement, and Hans Bensdorp, the priest in whose name the internet page has been registered. These two leaders of an heretical movement which has now swept away 6% of the Austrian Priests are still in good standing, and so are all the others. What on earth is happening here?! Whose side is the Cardinal on??

5. These heretics are so sure of impunity, that their internet site now has an invitation to their annual assembly in Linz, in November. Among the heretics it’s business as usual. They know that they have nothing to fear from the Archbishop.

One month on, Cardinal Schönborn hasn’t been able to do anything else than make some obligatory noises about the rebels being “disobedient”. He allows them to continue undisturbed. He hasn’t suspended anyone of the more than 250 openly heretical priests. He hasn’t even provided for the taking down of the internet page.

If you want to know what the motivations of this disgraceful Cardinal are you can read here; or you may want to learn from the Cardinal himself how to spread an heresy.

After one month, there can be no excuse for such scandalous  inaction . Cardinal Schönborn is clearly doing everything he can to allow this heretical movement to grow. He is their best ally and their most scandalous accomplice. 

Please help to stop this unspeakable shame by directly addressing the Vatican, as Cardinal Schönborn will never do anything unless forced to.

Addresses are as follows:

Congregation for the Clergy: clero@cclergy.va

Papal Nuncio in Austria: nuntius@nuntiatur.at

Holy Father:  benedictxvi@vatican.va

Please also help to stop this scandal by forwarding this information. You may want to forward (and mention in the protest emails you send) the links to blogs written by priests as they might be more effective. Two beautiful examples are EF Pastor Emeritus and Father Z.

Please take the time. Souls are at stake. Heresy is spreading in the middle of Europe, in the total absence of any will to do something effective against it.

  1. Thank you for the alert, M. Something’s gotta give! A strong Cardinal S. would indicate orthodoxy on the rise, and perhaps attract Austrians seeking some certainty in this upside down world. Instead, for now, it’s more of the same–milquetoast bishops that don’t stand up for anything, a floundering, silly, vapid version of the Faith. If a smaller, stronger Church is Austria’s destiny, so be it.

    • Susie,

      you’ll never have strenght from Cardinal S. The man is very much in love with himself, his onw popularity, his being the darling of the liberal crowds. The only way to get som eorthodoxy in Vienna would be to kick him out. But don’t hold your breath as he is a former pupil and protégé of the Pope, who evidently forgives him much more than he should.

      As for the money, I even think the Church in Austria would increase its popularity if they had the gut of being authentically Catholic. A strong, orthodox priest may be uncomfortable, or unpleasant, but he will always be respected.

      It is this kind of clowns that are abandoned, and the more they bark against Rome, the more they lose their standing. It is not that the liberal crowd is going to continue to pay for these idiots. The dissident and secular are just going to decide that they don’t count, and don’t deserve any money. They will be right on both accounts.
