The North American College seminary in Rome, or NAC, is crushing the Traditional Latin Mass and forcing the jab. The NAC's rector has come out strongly in support of the pope's recent decree, designed to regulate the Latin Mass into oblivion. Church Militant's William Mahoney has more on the seminary's apparent embrace of this world over the world to come.
NAC rector Fr. Peter Harman canceled the Latin Mass, even forbidding any training in the Mass of the Ages. The rector publicized his decision in a memorandum posted Tuesday.
In that memorandum, Harman clarified the Latin Mass has no home at the NAC. He argued permission to offer the Latin Mass from a diocesan bishop back home is "not sufficient for priest faculty or student priests ... outside of their respective dioceses."
Harman added, "There will no longer be 'Extraordinary Form' training taking place, nor celebrations according to the Missale Romanum 1962."
But while Harman claims he "received canonical counsel" in making this decision, one canon lawyer told Church Militant, "The NAC's statement about priests utilizing the 1962 Missale Romanum outside of their diocese is incorrect."
Referring to canon 78, he explained permission granted by a diocesan bishop to offer the Latin Mass falls under personal privileges, which travel with the priest.
Meanwhile, some seminarians are not returning for the fall semester, since the NAC is apparently forcing the jab. Church Militant tried to confirm this jab mandate with the vice rector, Fr. David Schunk, who is also director of media relations.
Fr. David Schunk: "If there are media inquiries — if I could get — like if you could email those to me and then we can look and respond to questions like that. ... Eventually, it will come to me — but we're doing — we like to get the questions through email."
As of this recording, Schunk has not replied to email.
Schunk recently replaced Fr. Adam Park, who returned to D.C. in the wake of a lawsuit against the NAC and New York's Cdl. Timothy Dolan.
The lawsuit alleges Park has a history of homosexual predation involving young and naïve subordinates.
Also, according to eyewitness testimony covered in the lawsuit, Harman allegedly participated in a homosexual orgy with his then-bishop, George Lucas, other sodomite clerics and a male prostitute, whom they paid $300.
Ousting the Latin Mass and forcing experimental gene therapy come as the latest in the NAC's long history of scandals.
