another mention of the 'defrocked' Malachi Martin

The book, Queer Street: Rise and Fall of an American Culture, 1947-1985 by James McCourt makes a passing mention of Malachi Martin and his paramour Kakia Livanos.  ****WARNING**** the scanned page has curse words, sexual disease, perverted behavior and if one couldn't tell by the title was written by a sodomite.  We hesitated to include this on Call Me Jorge... but decided to because it shows another link between Kakia and Malachi as well as the New York art scene of which the two were members of.  The mention of a drunk defrocked Irish priest (Martin) on page 322 also leads one to conclude he was up to his usual story telling.  This time his yarn was about being the confessor of  John XXIII!  A side note about Kakia Livanos, she ran a salon for artists on 5th Avenue, was a wealthy Athens socialite who also happened to be divorced, was a member of the Greek Orthodox religion, and was executive secretary for the United Greek Orthodox Charities.

  1. Thank you for documenting this. He was shacked up with this extremely wealthy Sutton Place divorcee for decades until he died. His traditionalist acolytes tell the Malachi Martin faithful that she was his housekeeper!

  2. People who are unfamiliar with Manhattan really should take a look at Sutton Place (right around the corner from the U.N.) on Google maps and see where Malachi Martin landed on his feet after sabotaging the VII council and a man's marriage in Rome.

    He was in the company of mega-wealthy global movers and shakers (Guggenheims, et, al who had paid him for his attack on the Church) at the time he claimed to have been driving a taxi and surviving on eclairs!

    1. Maurice,

      Even though we are sick of the topic of Malachi Martin, we at CMJ have more on him which will be put up in the future. Martin and his treachery are a template which all Catholics can learn from. We wonder what Martin & Heschel wrote to each other in their correspondences.

    2. THANK YOU again, CMJ for this. And thank you Maurice Pinay as well for your comments. Yes, "eclairs" and 'taxi driving"?!!! Such "eclairs" we would all 'survive" well on - but then again the devil DOES promise the world to those who serve him, eh? "All of this shall I give you if you but bow down and worship ME?"

      I really shudder to think where MM ended up. God help us all.

    Yet, Fr Paul Wickens of St Anthony of Padua Chapel, New Jersey is said to have looked after him in his last days and was lumbered with his medical bills. I remember seeing a request by Fr Wickens for donations to help defray these costs. Ah Traditionalists!!!!

    1. Yes, so what does that do to 'trads' who bought into what Fr. Wickens and Fr. Fiore always claimed about MM? Were Wickens and Fiore just innocent dupes of MM, or were they partners in crime? I certainly hope they were innocent dupes, as most of the laity have primarily been. Things are so bad now, though, that not many can claim to be 'innocent' or
      ignorant' of the apostasy anymore, and that includes all 'trad' priests who have chastised their laity members for even considering embracing the idea that the man in the Papal Chair should actually teach, hold, and possess the Catholic FAITH. That the white beanie costume alone doesn't qualify him as the REAL "pope." And that having an antipope in Rome doesn't mean that Christ has violated His promise to remain with the flock - that He hasn't left us all orphans.

  4. Malachi is a Jewish spelling as opposed to Malachy. The Church throughout history has had heaps of problems with false Christians, particularly with the Marranos in Spain.
