Georgetown U Priest Relieved Of His Faculties

I had written in the past about Father Joseph Palacios of Georgetown University, a self-described "gay priest" who co-founded "Catholics for Equality".  Comes now the happy news (thanks to Cardinal Newman Society) that Palacios has been relieved of his priestly faculties by his bishop, Jose Gomez of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Of course what would be more joyous would be the news of Palacios' repentance of his gay advocacy and dissidence in general.  In the meantime, we thank and salute Archbishop Gomez.


  1. According to the Archdiocese of Washington, he did not have faculties in Washington. Therefore, was he saying public Mass all the time? Was he hearing confessions?

    There is some 'splaining to do.

    1. He might have been able to perform those functions on the grounds of Georgetown University, which is under the purview of the Jesuits. Now he can't since his bishop has removed faculties.
