  • Tetherow was LAICIZED. He is no longer able to offer any sacraments even privately, only to absolve in danger of death.

    Well, could it be then that Fr. P was referring to another "Fr. Tetherow?"

  • More bad news:

    For the sake of the truth, I will give you "full disclosure" here.
    This woman is not a friend of Fr. Pfeiffer, OR of the rest of the Resistance (+Williamson, +Faure, Fr. Zendejas, etc.) -- there's a REASON she was banned from CathInfo.

    Dear Matthew,

    This is ____ ____. I am banned from your forum so I must send this info through a forum member.

    This Tetherow came to Boston last spring. Not only were the seminarians subjected to him without any warning about his true identity, but one of the seminarians, very familiar with his case, warned Fr. Pfeiffer about it. He was roundly ignored, just as universal public outcry about Ambrose was roundly ignored.

    I spoke to that seminarian's father today, who provided this information; and also to another seminarian, who is absolutely disgusted to think that this creep was foisted upon the young men with no warning,

    We have a situation analogous in seriousness to the Ambrose scandal: Fr. Pfeiffer locates a scumbag that should not be allowed to cross paths with Catholics. He is warned. He ignores the warnings and subjects the sheep to the wolf.

    Months after Ambrose was publicly exposed, Pfeiffer continues to use him in Colorado and Minnesota. An entire year after Pfeiffer is made aware of Tetherow's disgusting proclivities, he is subjecting his Philadelphia sheep to this scum.

    The hypocrisy is inarticulable. He red lights Catholic priests on scurrilous accusations against their doctrine, and then brings in a lying schismatic imposter. He even let that imposter hear confessions at OLMC on the Sunday he disgraced that chapel forever. Are not those confessions invalid?

    Talk about straining the gnat only to swallow the camel.

    Now we have an incidence of grave immorality committed by the priests of OLMC - not the first by a long shot.

    How can it not be a grave sin to attend their Masses and give them money? How?

    In Christ,

    When the Conciliar Church thinks a priest needs to be laicized, that really says something about him!

    http://www.dioceseofscranton.org/notice-regarding-dismissal-of-gabriel-tetherow/


    Posted on: 03-4-2015 Posted in: News
    This notice is to inform the Christian faithful that Virgil Bradley “Gabriel Francis” Tetherow, formerly a priest of the Diocese of Scranton, was dismissed from the clergy and returned to the lay state by the Holy Father, Pope Francis, on January 23, 2015. Mr. Tetherow was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Scranton June 29, 2002 and for one year after that was part of a private association known as the Servants Minor of Saint Francis, which was dissolved on November 17, 2003. In January 2005, Bishop Joseph F. Martino removed Mr. Tetherow from any public ministry when the Diocese of Scranton learned that he had been arrested for possession of child pornography, for which Mr. Tetherow was later sentenced to two years’ probation. Although resident in a rectory in Tobyhanna at the time, Mr. Tetherow never had a parish assignment in the Diocese of Scranton. Because he has been removed from the clerical state, Virgil Bradley “Gabriel Francis” Tetherow is forbidden to function as a priest in the Catholic Church and should no longer present himself as such.


    A laicized, convicted child pornographer!? It didn't exactly take an investigation of Ambrosian proportions to come to this knowledge. Do they have the internets and Googles in Boston?

  • This is really bad news for Boston, KY.

    Has anyone made this connection? Fr. Hewko must know about this -- about Fr. Tetherow I mean. And he hasn't got the word out in any way that I know of. So he is morally complicit in this! He is culpable.

    It's very sad, because a lot of people still like Fr. Hewko. But the poor man is unfortunately choosing "obedience to Fr. Pfeiffer" and letting himself be corrupted. We need many prayers and sacrifices for this priest.

    Can we get a bunch of people writing to Fr. Hewko or calling him? Maybe we can try to wake him up. If this situation doesn't wake him up, I don't know what possibly could!

    My thoughts exactly.

    And to answer your question, undoubtedly "yes" they have the Internet in Boston. As a matter of fact, this Fr. Pfeiffer video was already uploaded and live by MONDAY when the sermon was given sometime Sunday! That rather large 56 minute sermon MP4 video was uploaded with a pretty short turnaround.

    For those who have never uploaded such a file, let me say: my Fr. Voigt sermons usually run around 3,000 MB and that's for a 30 minute sermon. So a 56 minute video could be as much as 5,600 MB.

    Not only do they have Internet, but someone has a respectable, high-speed connection to it!

  • I have done some research in this matter. Although a David M. Drew offered testimony on behalf of this Father Tetherow, he may have also withdrawn his positive testimonial. I am reading more about this, and getting a time line in order.

    Nevertheless, this matter is a grave concern, one which I must ask Father Pfeiffer about. I hope and pray that this situation is not as dire as it seems.

    He's the fifth Resistance priest with such a background, but why is he being singled out, purely because he's been mentioned by Fr. Pfeiffer? If it was Bp. Williamson it would be OK, right?



    He is the fifth convicted, laicized pedophile "priest" in the Resistance?? What rock am I under not to have heard of the others?

    Don't be so superficial.

    Firstly, please note the CONVICTED adjective. I am not aware of any other convicted pedophile priests in Tradition.

    A priest who downloads child pornography to his computer is a very sick puppy. And apparently there was enough evidence to convict him in a court of law. Also, the court of law in question didn't throw out the case or drop the charges. That is another important point. Especially when comparing the Tetherow case to other cases, shall we say.

    Quote from: As an aside
    NOTE: We're not talking about the Johnnies (the Society of St. John, Shahola, PA in the late 1990s) wherein several SSPX seminarians got caught up in a group of art loving aesthetes, love of Greek philosophy, etc. and generally got caught up in a movement. Several seminarians, deacons, and a couple priests left the SSPX to start the Society of St. John. Note that St. John was the one who loved Our Lord and rested on Our Lord's chest during the Last Supper. This group got into the Greek notion of "close male friendship" and so forth. Like I said, "got caught up in" is a good description. A lot of real young, impressionable young men might have been caught up in this, and done a few things they perhaps regretted later.

    And without being vulgar, let's just say that when talking about perversion, there's a scale of 1 to 10 -- with 10 being "going all the way". The graver and lower the depravity, the greater long-term damage it does to one's soul.


    Secondly, note that he was laicized. To draw the ire of the Conciliar establishment really says something about a priest. There is quite a homo/pedo "lavender mafia" within the Conciliar Church, so it's remarkable that even THEY didn't try to give him psychological counseling, sweep his misdeeds under the rug, or try to move him around or otherwise cover up for him.

    (Yes, Wallflower, I understand your point that the modern Church considers the priesthood on far too natural/human a level. But nevertheless, sometimes laicization, a.k.a. "do not present yourself as a priest any longer" is the traditional solution.)

    P.S. I suggest you withdraw yourself from Fr. Pfeiffer's group, lest the poison affect you further. Just look at how your mind is already poisoned against +Williamson. I mean, honestly! Suggesting that +Williamson would send his faithful to a convicted, laicized pedophile! Give His Excellency some credit, will you? Most people normally would, if they hadn't been reading the Wreckusant and Pablo's filth for many months.

  • Well, sorry MC, but this pretty much puts the cap on the outhouse as far as I'm  concerned. I had hopes that OLMC might recover from the Ambrose debacle, but this looks like the death rattle. If Frs P and H are KNOWINGLY sending a CONVICTED LAICIZED  PERVERT to serve their faithful and mingle with their seminarians--then I don't see any coming back from that. Get your brother the H out of there and drag Fr Hewko with you - straight to the de-programmer!

    There is only one "Fr. Tetherow". His father has the same name but there is no other priest by that name.

  • I just sent an earnest, heartfelt plea to Fr. Hewko.

    That's Fr. Hewko at fr.d.hewko@gmail.com

    I said what needed to be said, and was very charitable. I told him we are praying for him, and many other things.

    Not to take away from your point because I agree that we shouldn't be dealing with him, but I do wonder if the laicizations today are a bit candy-coated like the annulments. Not that I have any better solution, I really don't know what ought to be done with pedophile priests. But did laicization happen before now? I can't help wondering if a holier and more faithful Papacy would come up with a better solution that kept people safe but didn't minimize/disregard the eternal character of the priesthood.



    Yes, they can strip you in a blink of an eye which doesn't say much for their orders. Our priest was threatened with "excommunication" if he didn't leave the "Schismatic" (independent) chapel and sign the "P.F." and "O.F. to the pope" ("Doctrinal Preamble") which they sent to him by mail. He refused to leave and they did it. Then they threatened to laicize him and they did it without a canonical process (Letters on the webpage). He has also been conditionally re-ordained.

    "Fr. Tetherow" canonical process went on for years.  We found the evidence and incriminating pictures. "Fr. Tetherow" will always blame "his enemies", as Matto suggests. We believed that for years. We pray for his salvation. I did the 30 Holy Communions personally for it. So...there!

    The two oldest boys of the main family who supports him have lost the faith. I prefer not to go into it. They were pious altar boys when they left the Mission. The next three children in line (teenagers) are now in the public schools and their mother hasn't spoken to her sister (a traditional Catholic) for years because she knows what "Fr. Tetherow" is.

    I don't think we can dismiss it that easily.

    1. We heard Fr. Pfeiffer speak about his "friend priest Fr. Tetherow" with his own mouth, posted on his own channel.

    2. We looked up Fr. Tetherow, and there are the facts large as life.
    http://www.saintspeterandpaulrcm.com/OPEN%20LETTERS/TETHEROW.htm
    http://www.dioceseofscranton.org/notice-regarding-dismissal-of-gabriel-tetherow/

    3. We also have the testimony of one local to the area (Maria Auxiliadora) who attests that there is only (1) Fr. Tetherow in the area.


    Sorry, but I don't think we can just shrug this off as so much Internet rumor. I wish we could!

    P.S. It's really hard to generalize about "the Internet" when you're talking about 3.17 billion people. You might as well try to generalize about people in general.
