Thank you to St. Cyprian Council (KofC #10008)

Congratulations to the St. Cyprian Council, part of St. Cyprian Catholic Church (DC), which raised $3,000 for the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center.  They did it via the annual baby bottle campaign.

Nice job!

Nineteen Emails...

19.

That is the number of emails I received from the Shrine in the month   Some are direct appeals for money, usually through the sale of a product.  Those that talk about a specific event, always have a button asking for donations.

To receive that many emails, must mean they are hurting.

Catholic Standard Update for Nov. 28th


Well, let's start off with the obvious: There is no mention of the Msgr. Rossi investigation at the National Shrine.  He continues just as he has done for years and +Gregory is just enabling it.  Even the advertisement regarding Mass times has Rossi's name still on it.  The Archdiocese has no shame. 

Let's take a look at some of the other stories in the Catholic Standard:

  • 125th Anniversary of St. Cyprian
  • There is a page and a half article on the Francis Factor with +Gregory, as part of a panel discussion.  One of the panelists is John Carr.  You may remember his, as being part of the USCCB, where he was responsible for shaping the political message.  He was a leftist, and still is.  From the USCCB he went to Harvard and is now at left leaning Georgetown.  You can read the nonsense from +Gregory and Carr there.  However, you probably should save your time.
  • A short article about the Pope's visit to Japan and nukes.
  • An article on retired sisters.
  • A Capuchine priest sentenced to 15 years for child sex abuse in August.  He served at the Shrine from 2014 to 2018.  Wonders if Msgr. Rossi knew anything about this?
  • Full page article on St. Cyprian and diversity
  • Article on St. Martin's in Gaithersburg and diversity
  • Article on one of the Sisters of Mercy. 
  • Interfaith Council of Washington.  Again, taking the que from +Francis, we seem to have more and  more about the feel good interfaith meetings, etc.  
  • Victory Housing marks 40 years.  
  • Leo Nester's death.

Msgr. Pope and the Pachamama


Msgr. Pope once again hits it on the head in regards to +Francis and the Pachamama.  

I worry about him because at some point +Gregory will probably come down hard on him.  

Watch it here and thank you LIFESITE NEWS.

Guess What is Still Missing from the Catholic Standard?

Yes, you guessed it, there is still no mention of the investigation of Msgr. Rossi, assigned to the National Shrine.

We have stories on:
  • the Kidane-Mehret Ethiopian Catholic Church
  • a Midway battle veteran (thank you for your service!)
  • the priest convocation
  • DACA (which BTW was an illegal action, but tell that to CLINIC)
  • Carmelite Cloister at Port Tobacco

And yet, there is no room for a story on the investigation of Msgr. Rossi.

You think that they are covering it up????

BTW, Archbishop Gregory will be at Christ the King Church on East-West Highway in Silver Spring this weekend.  

Wonder if I should set-up a large sign, asking about the investigation.
