    Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley had strong words for the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) this weekend for its criticisms of Pope Francis. Asked by Argentinean journalist Elisabetta Pique about conservative/liberal polarization among the U.S. bishops, Cardinal O’Malley said that "the episcopal conference is polarized, but it is difficult to put a percentage on the opposing sides. There are also some bishops who are tied to a more conservative policy and the Holy Father himself has commented on the situation of EWTN, where many times the commentators are very critical of the Holy Father, at least of his ideas."

    Boston's Cardinal O'Malley defends Francis against attacks from EWTN critics ROME — Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley on Dec. 17 defended Pope Francis against criticisms from the U.S.-based Eternal Word Television Network, known as EWTN, saying the Catholic media empire's attacks on Francis are not representative of how most Catholics view the pope. "The Holy Father himself has commented on the situation of the EWTN television (large American Catholic network), where many times the commentators are very critical of the Holy Father, at least of his ideas," said O'Malley in an interview with Argentine daily newspaper La Nación.O'Malley's remarks come after...

    Priest of Archd. of Boston – @bostoncatholic – openly supports the abortion position of Dems and #Biden2020 I say… suspend the jackass now.If nothing else this priest in Boston is committing the sin of scandal, by leading people to think that support of abortion – which is the sacramental plank of the Party of Death’s platform – is anywhere near acceptable for a Catholic. Scandal is any action or its omission, not necessarily sinful in itself, that is likely to induce another to do something morally wrong. Direct scandal, also called diabolical, has the deliberate intention to induce another to...

Paul Garrity of the Archdiocese of Boston spoke to CNA Tuesday, after attracting criticism for a Facebook post endorsing former vice president Joe Biden for president. In an Aug. 23 Facebook post titled...

    Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, left a popular D.C. pub on Wednesday evening after Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland (D), raised his voice and berated him regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Both Cuccinelli and O’Malley appeared at the Dubliner in the nation’s capital, a choice pub for Gonzaga High School graduates. “Both men attended the school, graduating five years apart in the 1980s,” the Washington Post notes. According to one witness, Siobhan Houton Arnold, Cuccinelli walked into the bar, and O’Malley proceeded to berate him regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies,...

    Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli fired back at former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley on Thursday after the Democrat forced Cuccinelli to leave an event Thanksgiving eve, with Cuccinelli claiming O'Malley's "sad" and "shocking" outburst was so vitriolic his neck veins were "bulging." Cuccinelli, in a lengthy statement to Fox News, recalled Wednesday night’s incident, which took place at the Dubliner—an Irish pub on Capitol Hill where he and O’Malley were attending an event with fellow graduates of Gonzaga College High School before O’Malley’s “shame-invoking tirade” forced Cuccinelli to leave.

    Why I’m going to a Jim Ryan fundraiser tonight Monday, September 16, 2002 By Jill Stanek ( ) I thought after the primary I would just ignore the governor’s race this year. My guy, Patrick O’Malley, didn’t win and I had a big problem with the guy the Republicans of Illinois picked, Jim Ryan. I also had a big problem with conservative leaders and groups that I thought should have supported O’Malley during the primary but either didn’t or put their feet in both camps to hedge their bets. I blamed them for O’Malley’s loss. I thought to myself,...

    Just when we thought we’d seen it all, a Boston Archdiocesan parish led by a “gay-friendly’ pastor has done something worse than we could have imagined. The “gay-friendly” pastor at St. Ignatius of Loyola in Chestnut Hill — welcomed by Cardinal O’Malley to the parish in 2016 despite his published history of leading a “gay-friendly” parish in New York City — has a full-page propaganda letter in their parish bulletin touting the parish administrator’s story as a transgender person and urging parishioners to vote “Yes” on the upcoming “Bathroom Bill” ballot question. A “Yes” means the existing law stands that...

    Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was in Davenport on Saturday, saying controversies in the White House are pushing unaligned voters to the left in a way that will help Democrats in this year’s midterm elections. “The crazier things get out of that Trump White House, the more independents look our way, and they’re coming our way strong,” O’Malley told more than 40 people at Scott County Democratic headquarters. O’Malley said that President Donald Trump has been a great recruitment tool for Democrats, and this year’s midterms are a chance to push back on the 2016 losses. “Great countries sometimes make...

    Is Cardinal O’Malley Whitewashing the Gay Scandal Investigation of St. John’s Seminary? Several BCI readers have asked what we know about the latest on the investigation into homosexual activity and sexual harassment at St. Johns Seminary.  Based on internal and external indicators, we get the distinct impression the outcome could end up looking largely like a “nothing-burger” and it could be set-up as a whitewashing. A few heads may roll, but not much else will change.When the scandal hit, Cardinal O’Malley responded with great fanfare about the major investigation into St. John’s Seminary. BCI is told that the high-paid folks on the...

    BOSTON ( - In spite of a letter detailing Cdl. Theodore McCarrick's serial sex abuse of seminarians, Boston's Cdl. Sean O'Malley welcomed him to a fundraising gala in fall of 2015, which raised $2 million for the archdiocese. He also traveled to Cuba with McCarrick a week later, holding a joint talk with him as well as concelebrating Mass, even calling him "wonderful" in a blog post.  O'Malley issued a statement in late July admitting knowledge of a letter from June 2015 about McCarrick's sexual predation of seminarians. "Recent media reports also have referenced a letter sent to me from Rev. Boniface Ramsey,...

    Pope Francis and Cardinal Seán O’Malley appear to handle the sex abuse crisis in the same way. It appears that Francis and O’Malley don't receive letters when it's about sex abuse of minors. Pope Francis's own chief adviser on sexual abuse matters and president of the Commission for the Protection of Minors Cardinal O’Malley personally gave a sex abuse victim letter to Francis that the Pope never acknowledged receiving. Now, O' Malley received a letter from a priest which revealed that one of the most influential Cardinals in the United States was a sex abuser and he never received it. [] O' Malley's record as Francis's own...

    Detail of “The Cardinal’s Friendly Chat” by Jehan Georges Vibert (snapshot taken at the New Orleans Museum of Art) The Washington Post writes about its retired hometown cardinal, Uncle Teddy McCarrick. Once a globe-trotting representative of the Catholic Church worldwide and one of the architects of the church’s policy on sexual abuse, McCarrick’s precipitous fall over the past month has shocked Catholics, especially in Washington, where he was a popular archbishop from 2001 to 2006.McCarrick’s future now rests with Pope Francis, who as pontiff oversees the cardinals. Many church-watchers think this is a make-or-break moment for Francis because of McCarrick’s...

    As a young man studying to be a priest in the 1980s, Robert Ciolek was flattered when his brilliant, charismatic bishop in Metuchen, N.J., Theodore E. McCarrick, told him he was a shining star, cut out to study in Rome and rise high in the church. Bishop McCarrick began inviting him on overnight trips, sometimes alone and sometimes with other young men training to be priests. There, the bishop would often assign Mr. Ciolek to share his room, which had only one bed. The two men would sometimes say night prayers together, before Bishop McCarrick would make a request —...
