If you've ever had a family member with dementia you know that the short term memory is what goes. They remember what happened 20 years ago like it was yesterday.
I am aware that short term memory goes first.

But I thought eventually long term goes as well, yet the person may continue to live a long time.

No? So the Archbishop may have had unremitting punishment, unable to focus on today? Wow.

I would be interested in hearing of experiences with Alzheimers. I have no first hand experience with it in friends or family.

Maybe a married clergy isn't the answer, but if a woman can pass the seminary, why can't she be a priest?
I don't see any reason why a woman or a married clergy couldn't be a priest.

Irritability, mood swings, language breakdown and long term memory loss and eventually death. Alzheimer's is generally diagnosed in those over 65 years of age. It is a very sad and debilitating disease.

It is okay to feel bitter. Deeply hurt! Indignant! It is appropriate to feel great pain as this man is celebrated by some, even though he did not always walk the talk.
Celebrated! Though he did not protect the most vulnerable from those whom the vulnerable should expect to trust.
It is a massive, terrible betrayal, his role in the story of pedophile priests who preyed. And terrible is the story of his victimization of the girls/young women that he himself violated.
And the victims will always suffer post-traumatic stress.
It is a terrible thing to betray trust.
But it is a bittersweet story as well.
He did pay great penance.
And after the trauma of his own exposure,
and after long penance,
He was blessed.
Eventually the Alzheimer's took even his long-term memory.
He could forget.
Finally he was blessed with death.
It is bittersweet.
And that is the basic nature of the Catholic Church.
Hope you don't mind if I don't care one bit for his woes. His victims and those that he did nothing to protect or seek justice for don't have the luxury of forgetting.

My dad and his sister and brother all had Alzheimer's. It doesn't effect all people the same because the plaque that builds in the brain hits different areas in different sequences. There are commonalities, however, which do make it a unique disease. Dementia, btw, is not a disease. It is a group of symptoms of various brain disorders.

No, I do not mind if you do not care about what happened to him. He was part of horrible crime. I was commenting on him vis a vis the Catholic Church.

Thank you so much for Alzheimer's information. I'm sorry you have had to witness multiple occurrences in your family. A tragedy.

Please take care, dear.

Seems that one can compartmentalize a person's life vis a vis the catholic church. Like the paintings where the portrait shows a white collar-like affair around the neck. Separating the mind and soul from the debased lower body. Wish it were so easy. Yet it seems easy to ignore. Even Pete Rose can't get into the Hall of Fame and he wasn't a molester or stalker or predatory.

cool it! you infidels. The archbishop was a man to be ADMIRED. YES, he had alzheimers at the end. He could have run and lived the rest of his life unknown, forgotten...but...he was LOYAL to his call as a CATHOLIC man. Yes, his life was admirable as was he.

The Church cannot ordain woman-they don't have the authority to do it.

The link spells the case out very clearly as to why they can't do it.

Thanks

Admire him for his admirable traits, sure. Does that mean that you should dismiss his serious, in fact, criminal, transgressions?
Oh yes

But he was doing it and ignoring it in others while he was doing all those things that people venerate him for. I think they think that that makes it a wash. This is not the story of Saul to Paul.

This thread is rather amusing in that I suspect most of the vocal naysayers(not all) are not practicing Catholics, so why should his burial place be of concern to them? Just something else to bitch about it appears.

Just more of the historically consistent deviant nature of the Roman Catholic Perverted Priests Cult.

me is no matter how sick and twisted and sneaky and criminal members of the RCC leadership are (e.g. that former Nazi Youth of a Pope), idiots around the world continue to flock without any compunction at all.

You are most likely correct. Practicing Catholics apparently not only do not care that their church leadership are perverts, they applaud and support them in all of their sick, twisted, criminal activities and love keeping their putrid, rotting remains near at hand for everlasting inspiration.

I'm truly sorry for anyone who's gone through this with a loved one. My beloved grandmother had Alzheimer's. It is a loss of self :(

Nice try, Troll. So only those of the Roman Church need apply. I, therefore, assume you are a practicing Catholic. Didn't know we needed Confirmation or Catechism to post.
