Priest suspended, sent for psychological treatment for celebrating the Novus Ordo in Latin | Fr. Z’s Blog

I originally wrote about Moral Injury because I had also, previously, written about how bishops use “psychological evaluation” – the Psych Strike Gambit – against priests to remove them as annoyances and to intimidate others. There seems to be a pattern.  A bishop calls in a priest about whom there has been some complaint: he seems aloof; he could have issues with women in ministry; he is trying to “turn the clock back”; he moved a chair in the sanctuary; etc.  The bishop says that he wants Father to go to a place like St. Luke’s in Maryland for evaluation.  The priest goes.  He is there for a week or so.  At the end of the stay, he is told that there doesn’t seem to be much wrong with him.  He goes home thinking that that is the end of it. But wait.  There’s always more.
