Dickie Wood in a recent photo (I photoshopped out the person next to him… they’re not a “public figure”… therefore, I used photo-editing to preserve their privacy). The stress of his recent ordeal has aged him prematurely…
I have it on good authority that Ray Velencia is still pursuing a legal case against Fr Michael Regan. I’ve noted that JP is keeping a public silence on this obscenity and abomination of desolation. A suspended priest sues a priest in good standing, and JP just sits there, sucking his thumb, doing nothing. JP is RV’s diocesan, therefore, he has the duty to publicly condemn RV, condemn the legal case against Fr Mike, and defrock RV for such arrogance and unruliness. Did RV ask JP’s permission to sue Fr Mike? Interesting question, that is. However, it’s clear that JP’s done nothing. He’s telling the world by his inaction that he doesn’t defend his priests… that he allows frivolous legal actions by disgraced clergy against good clergy. This is one of Fathausen’s most stupid moves. He’s making every priest ask, “Am I next?” This is unwise, but JP isn’t the sort that considers others.
For instance, when he went to Mayfield, sources tell me that he didn’t consult with the local NEPA OCA clergy first. This, at least, ruffled feathers. Furthermore, it shows that JP has no regard for the rank n’ file clergy in the trenches. So, if one looks at this, in connection with his slobbering toleration of RV’s lawsuit, it means that he has nothing but contempt for the ordinary parish priest. As a friend wrote me, “As for JP, yes, where are those willing to rid us of him? It was so much easier in the ‘good old days’ when you could find an assassin to help you out”. The person involved isn’t a nutter… they’re quite mature and a solid Church member for years. THIS is what’s out there.
If one looks at Dickie Wood’s photo, he’s aged tremendously. Of course, the crazy situation that JP put him in would turn anyone’s toes. Mind you, I think that Dickie’s a Renovationist loon… but that doesn’t excuse how JP moved against him. My view’s clear. I think that Dickie knows about Bobby K’s involvement in the OCA Representational parish in Moscow, and it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that Bobby was in cahoots with the crook starosta there. Therefore, JP wanted to send Dickie off to Manton… but he didn’t end up there, as all of us know. You don’t pick and choose whom you defend… you defend anybody who’s getting the shaft, no matter who, no matter for what. Dickie deserved to go, but due process wasn’t followed, and JP’s utter secrecy in it all should be a warning to all of us. Dickie still has powerful friends… and JP’s ignoring that.
JP has made John Perich Dean of St Nicholas Cathedral in DC in all but name. This is a clear sign that Bobby’s gang of cutthroats has taken over. It’s clear that JP is nothing but a Charlie McCarthy to Bobby’s Edgar Bergen. John Perich is part of that Pennsyltucky crowd around Bobby… with this appointment, JP made it clear to all the cognoscenti that he’s nothing but Bobby’s obedient little Peke. Oh, yes… the crowd at Monomakhos all shouted down the person who posted this news at first… yet, you can see what happened. It’s an indication of how far you can trust that bunch, I’d say.
However, don’t forget that the Storheim pot’s still boiling up in Canada. It hasn’t gone to trial, yet. I think that event will be a catalyst… people who’re on the fence now will have their eyes opened. Yet, you can’t rush that; so, if someone refuses to see truth, let them be. Coming events will open their eyes, and more fully than any of us realise. Hell hath no fury like a good-hearted po-nashemu slogger who finds out that they’ve been lied to.
As Konstantin Simonov put it in one of his poems, “Simply… you knew how to wait… No one else but you”. Better days ARE on the way…
