A MUST READ FOR CONCERNED CATHOLICS

Walk into any public library today and you are sure to find a number of books concerning the recent scandals in the Catholic Church. However, I can say with a great deal of confidence that you will rarely, if ever, find "Goodbye, Good Men" available on the shelf. Michael S. Rose has written a thoughtful, disturbing and well documented book about the problems in today's Church and what he perceives to be the root cause. Rose argues that orthodox Catholic men seeking to enter the priesthood are routinely eliminated because of their "rigid" views. In the meantime, a good many of the seminaries around the nation have become homosexual havens where traditional Church teachings are scoffed at by both faculty and students alike. Rose also makes a powerful argument that vocations to the priesthood began to decline sharply in the 1970's when the concept of "self sacrifice" was set aside in favor of "self fulfillment" for our priests. The book is disturbing to say the least but it is a "must read" for those who would like to join the debate on the future direction of the Church.

Profound Expose of a Crisis in the Catholic Church

Sometimes the most vital books are those which arouse a strong hatred in a minority, even a large minority, of its readers. Such is Goodbye, Good Men. Not only is Mr. Rose scorned by many reviewers on this site, many Church liberals like Charlie Curran, Richard McBrien and Rembert Weakland (recently disgraced Archbishop of Milwaukee, who was caught paying off his former male lover with Diocesan funds) foam at the mouth at Mr. Rose's name and anybody else willing to expose the cancer which pervades the seminaries of the Roman Catholic Church. Using scores of interviews of orthodox young men who have felt the call to become priests and attend seminaries, Mr. Rose paints an ugly and sometimes bizarre picture of the American seminary system. Orthodox seminarians are turned away from seminaries due to their orthodoxy and belief in traditional Catholicism. Many seminaries, like St. Mary's of Baltimore (nicknamed the Pink Palace), are hot-houses of homosexuality where cruising gay bars is deemed acceptable behavior for a seminarian's off-hours. A homosexual network has been formed that has enveloped dozens of seminaries in the United States, seminaries where non-homosexuals and the orthodox are not wanted and are driven out. Mr. Rose explains that many seminaries forsake forming solid, orthodox, holy priests but rather wish to form the young men into worldly, politically correct, left-wing modernist priests. In this millieu, no wonder many devout, orthodox young men get discouraged in the seminaries and leave. No wonder priestly formation has collapsed in the United States since the onset of Vatican II and the modernist takeover of the Roman Catholic Church. One does not have to look very hard to find the results of a Church which has adopted the modernist way. Sexual scandals are front page news and million dollar pay-offs to those sexually abused by priests are not unusual today. The Roman Catholic Church is a disgraced institution with a well-deserved loss of prestige. By the account of Catholic scholar Donald Cozzens, 30-50 % of Roman Catholic priests in the USA are homosexual. The Roman Catholic laity, which numbers about 60 million in the United States, attends weekly Mass at about a 20-25 % rate. A majority of nominal Roman Catholics have turned their backs on the Church. The teachings of the Church are virtually ignored by American Catholics today. What Mr. Rose details so thoroughly in Goodbye, Good Men is a good reason why the Roman Catholic Church is in such a terrible state in the United States.
