Priest To Be EXCOMMUNICATED For This Homily

Excommunication for being Catholic? Has it come to that?

From Complicit Clergy .

Full text of the homily at The Remnant

From GoFundMe:
Fr. Vaughn Treco is a Catholic priest of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter and former parochial administrator of the Church of St. Bede the Venerable in St. Louis Park, MN who has been unfairly and unjustly suspended, and is threatened with excommunication by his bishop, His Excellency Steven J. Lopes.
On the Feast of Christ the King on November 25th, 2018, Fr. Treco delivered a homily that explains the root of the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic Church, and exposes the rot that infects the current hierarchy. This homily was posted to “The Remnant TV” YouTube channel (with Fr. Treco’s explicit permission) and has, of the time of this writing, over 41,000 views (linked below.) For this, Bishop Lopes removed Fr. Treco as administrator, and then two weeks later suspended him entirely as a priest. Included in the notice of suspension, was a threat of excommunication in 60 days from the notice if he did not recant of the homily. Though it has been asked, the bishop nor any of the chancery officials have provided any information or specifics for what is wrong in the homily, only vague allusions to not being allowed to “criticize popes.”
Unfortunately, Fr. Treco’s only source of income was his pastoral ministry, primarily as a hospital chaplain. Not only did he rely on this income, but as a former Anglican clergyman, he is married and so his wife, Norma, does as well. Due to his suspension, he is no longer able to function as a priest and can no longer perform those duties. Thus, he has lost the entirety of his income. Furthermore, he and his wife have had to move out of the rectory they were living in and move in with family temporarily before another housing opportunity (already arranged) opens up in June. This has caused additional costs.

TAKE ACTION:

  1. Make a donation to support Fr. Treco and his family.

  2. Contact Bishop Lopes at 713-609-9292 and ask him to reinstate Fr. Treco.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
