From Hunger to Hope

Although there is a great deal of criticism of the Archdiocese of Washington DC (and rightly so), it is also important to point out something that I think is good.

I received a flier from one of the local Catholic Schools encouraging families to donate various food items, such as cereal, canned meats, canned veggies, etc. Each grade is asked to donate a particular item. For example, Eight Grade students are asked to donate canned fruits.

The items will then be donated to the local food banks.

The canned items will be "a visible sign of our faith as we prepare to welcome Pope Benedict XVI, the Shepherd of the Universal Church."

So, if you think you can spare a couple of non-perishable items, give your local Catholic school a call. They will probably be more than happy to receive the donation.

The deadline is Thursday, April 10, 2008.

Quote of the Month:

"I've got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old, I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. So it doesn't make sense to not give them information." Barack Obama

Thank you for leaving the post that you did in Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam. We have watched that blog turn into nothing but a vehicle for somebody named "Joe" to spew all sort of heretical nonsense for over a year. Now lately some other less than Catholic types have come in to add their voices to his. There are several regulars, a deacon, a priest and a canon lawyer too who do battle with them but it does get tiresome with the main evildoer "Joe" because he is obstinate in his sins. But when that woman had the nerve to post her website touting the abortion loving, antiAmerican antiChrist Obmanation...that was more than any of us should have to endure.

Thank you for stepping up to the plate. I hope you will visit daily because DAILY these devils assault The Church. And uh...invite your friends.
