Canon 1369 A person who uses a public show or speech, published writings, or other media of social communication to blaspheme, seriously damage good morals, express wrongs against religion or against the Church or stir up hatred or contempt against religion or the Church is to be punished with a just penalty.
Only men who take a vow of poverty, chastity and obedience can become priests. The Catholic church doesn't allow priests to marry or have romantic relationships. If a priest decides to marry, he must leave the priesthood. He can, however, serve the diocese as a deacon.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.
The Second Vatican Council, which convened in the early 1960s, beautifully described the role of the priest by noting three functions: "preach the Gospel and shepherd the faithful and... celebrate divine worship" (Lumen Gentium, 28). Interestingly, most Catholics may be more familiar with "celebrating divine worship," for example, the Mass. But the Second Vatican Council gives renewed priority to the ministry of the Word, which makes for a Gospel-based priesthood, and to the pastoral care of the faithful, which makes for a service-based ministry.

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them. Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love." Mother Theresa of Calcutta.
"The true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence. He inspires self-distrust. He guides their eyes from himself to the spirit that quickens him. He will have no disciple." - Amos Bronson Alcott
"Learning is finding out what you already know, Doing is demonstrating that you know it, Teaching is reminding others that they know it as well as you do. We are all learners, doers, and teachers." - Richard David Bach
Catholics has NO OBLIGATION to follow or believe PRIVATE REVELATIONS. We are only obliged to follow PUBLIC REVELATIONS like the BIBLE. The Pieta Prayer Book is not imprimatured as a whole and, I think if you check, it is published by Baysiders. On the whole, it is orthodox, but that particular bit of advice has bothered me ever since I first read it shortly after becoming a Catholic over thirty years ago, since 1977. It is completely absurd.
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits." - Matthew 7:15-20; "Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light." - 2 Cor. 11:14
Public revelation is binding on all Christians, but private revelation is binding only on those who receive it. The Catholic Church teaches that public revelation was completed, and therefore was concluded, with the death of the last apostle (Vatican II, Dei Verbum 4), but private revelation has continued. "Throughout the ages, there have been so-called ‘private’ revelations, some of which have been recognized by the authority of the Church. They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ’s definitive revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by the magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium[collective sense of the faithful] knows how to discern and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to the Church. Christian faith cannot accept ‘revelations’ that claim to surpass or correct the revelation of which Christ is the fulfillment, as is the case in certain non-Christian religions and also in certain recent sects which base themselves on such ‘revelations’" (Catechism of the Catholic Church 67). Some people tend to go to one extreme or the other on private revelation; they either completely reject the concept or they consider private revelation their chief rule of faith.
I believe these revelations are of a similar type as those of Sr. Faustina. The revelations by Jesus to Faustina concerned Divine Mercy. The revelations by Jesus to Vogel were a condemnation of criticism of priests. The revelations may have occurred in 1929 - in Southern Germany - I don't really know. The revelations to Faustina are accepted and approved by the Church. I would like to know whether the revelations to Vogel are likewise approved. A printed version of the revelations to Vogel appear in a small prayer book called the Pieta.
The Pieta Prayerbook does contain borderline stuff, and there is plenty of "private revelation" in it's pages which technically doesn't bind the faithful. I cited this, however, to remind people that there is a fairly long-standing Catholic tradition of simply refraining from attacking the clergy and praying and doing penance instead. The "top management" is supposed to take care of the errant priests, and they often do without sounding a chorus of trumpets about it. When they don't, God sends someone from the "internal affairs" department, like St. Francis or St. Catherine. Do you know anyone in the So-Called Catholic blogosphere (SCCB) whose humility and holiness can be compared to St. Catherine? (I do know ONE; he NEVER attacks the clergy, by the way.) Remember she wrote letters to Cardinals and had a direct audience with the Pope to encourage him to be more manly and get out of France.
I am still in need of someone to direct me to information on Mutter Vogel. Usually a site promoting what they believe to be the words of our Lord will have a source of history to the claim. The supposed prophecy is vague source. I agree gossiping about even a truth about anyone, priest or not is wrong, but there are grounds for bringing issues of one priest to the attention of another priest or his superior. The vague term of attack needs to be clarified. Attack as in, Father lost his temper or has bad breath or Father is hurting another person. Also, not speaking ill of, needs to be elaborated on. Is this Mutter Vogel suggesting our Lord said not to say anything negative about a priest to anyone? Or to limit the expression of your opinions or observations to certain persons in authority such as another priest?
There is this unhealthy strain of Romanticism concerning veneration of priests that is really disturbing and does not coincide with the reality of Catholic teaching, common sense and charity. For instance, if you get solicited by a priest in the confessional, if he makes overtures to you in any fashion of a sexual nature, you are obligated to turn him in, your absolution is automatically suspended and contingent upon your reporting this priest to your local ordinary and his superior. It seems people are taking the emotional hyperbole of great saints and turning them into doctrinal teachings. Catholics have to learn to separate the poetic musings of saints and blesseds and mystics from the clear, solid teaching of the Church. Let that teaching be your guide and not sentimental musings of saints that wrote rhapsodic prose on days where everything was going a certain way.
Yeah, this is one of those clerical maximalist private revelations that rears its ugly head around here from time to time. Thus, insulting the Church and the intelligence of her children. I don't doubt that a lot of repressed, young momma's boys with bad skin REALLY want to believe this but, when it comes right down to it, no one with more than a few brain cells rattling around the old noggin takes it seriously. Let's face it, even the most supercharged, super-sized, super-clerical among you would -- when confronted with a priest about to rape a child, or minta puji teriak-teriak macam tidak pernah belajar mengguna pembesar suara yang ada di depan mulutnya, or, say, slice of your mother's petticoat-- drop to his knees and pray. You would, at the very least, call the police. And, if you retained even a semblance of your humanity you'd beat the living hell out of him to protect the innocent. Cling to this garbage and you make an idol of individual priests and you throw the 1st Commandment down the lav……
Some people has become so desperate that the person is now using his/her own 'false teaching' about our Catholics faith to confuse the simple and ignorant faithful of the church to make a point and to sanction his/her illicit doing. In other word he/she is using the Private Revelations of Vogel as an AUTHORITY AND RULE OF FAITH overbidding the teaching of the Church and the Bible. I consulted to a few correspondent priests about Mutter Vogel and his revelations and they were horrified that some educated priest is using Vogel's revelations to score a point and to confuse the public. They said it is the duty of every Christian to report to the bishop when somebody is confusing the public with teachings that is against the teaching of the Catholic Church. A priest is given responsibility over the soul of the faithful and yet what somebody is doing is confusing the faithful by using PRIVATE REVELATIONS that has not been sanctioned by the Church as authority to condone his/her illicit action.
This is my solemn warning to all who hear the prophecies in this book: if anyone adds anything to them, GOD will add to him every plague mentioned in the book; if anyone cuts anything out of the prophecies in this book, GOD will cut of his share of the tree of life and of the holy city, which described in the book.
TITLE IV: THE OFFENCE OF FALSEHOODCan. 1391 The following can be punished with a just penalty, according to the gravity of the offence:
1ƒ a person who composes a false public ecclesiastical document, or who changes or conceals a genuine one, or who uses a false or altered one;
2ƒ a person who in an ecclesiastical matter uses some other false or altered document;
3ƒ a person who, in a public ecclesiastical document, asserts something false.
TITLE V: OFFENCES AGAINST SPECIAL OBLIGATIONS
Can. 1394 ß1 Without prejudice to the provisions of can. 194, ß1, n. 3, a cleric who attempts marriage, even if only civilly, incurs a latae sententiae suspension. If, after warning, he has not reformed and continues to give scandal, he can be progressively punished by deprivations, or even by dismissal from the clerical state.
Can. 1395 ß1 Apart from the case mentioned in can. 1394, a cleric living in concubinage, and a cleric who continues in some other external sin against the sixth commandment of the Decalogue (refer to the website http://catholicharboroffaithandmorals.com posted in the "LINK" below in order to understand the sixth commandment of the Decalogue) which causes scandal, is to be punished with suspension. To this, other penalties can progressively be added if after a warning he persists in the offence, until eventually he can be dismissed from the clerical state.
ß2 A cleric who has offended in other ways against the sixth commandment of the Decalogue, if the crime was committed by force, or by threats, or in public, or with a minor under the age of sixteen years, is to be punished with just penalties, not excluding dismissal from the clerical state if the case so warrants.
