The hour is late/early.
Suffice it for the moment to state that this commentary deals with the “private” meeting that Jorge Mario Bergoglio had on Saturday, January 24, 2015, the Feast of Saint Timothy, with a gender-mutilated woman, who believes herself to be a “man,” and her “fiancée,” a woman! Got all that?
This commentary is relatively short. However, it does contain a lot of information, including a 2003 “doctrinal note” issued by the conciliar Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, headed at the time by Joseph “Cardinal” Ratzinger, forbade any recognition be accorded surgical procedures that are used in an effort to “change” the gender that God has given to a particular person. Yes, there are times when there is a bit of space between Ratzinger and Bergoglio. In this instance, though, there is no space between Bergoglio and one of his chief nemeses in the conciliar structures, Raymond Leo “Cardinal” Burke.
Word reached me shortly after Midnight of the death of Mrs. Rose Marie Condit, the matriarch of the famous Condit family of Cincinnati, Ohio, and environs. Mrs. Condit died on Sunday, January 25, 2015, at the age of eighty-four.
Mrs. Condit, who was married to the eminent Catholic attorney, Mr. James Condit, Sr., one of the most charitable Catholics one will ever meet, and had eleven children, sixty-one grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren. That is quite a legacy.
On behalf of Sharon and Lucy, I want to express by deepest and most heartfelt condolences to a man I have been privileged to know since 1994, Jim Condit, Sr., and his entire family as we assure them of our prayers for the repose of the soul of Mrs. Rose Marie Condit and for them all in this time of sorrow. Please join us in pray for the repose of Mrs. Condit’s immortal soul and for the needs of her family at this time. She was a remarkable witness to the Catholic Faith.
Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and all of the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
