Eco-Ministry and the Archdiocese

A friend (and yes, I do have one or two or three) let me know that this weekend, the Archdiocese of Washington's Environmental Outreach Department will present Faith , Environment and the Call to Stewardship.

Now, I believe that it is important for us to do what we can to recycle and use things wisely, but does the Archdiocese have to spend money on this sort of thing? You mean, no one else out there is doing/advocating this sort of stuff? When we are closing schools, we are spending money on this? When our beliefs are slowly being eroded, such as in DC and Montgomery County, this is what we are worried about -- ensuring that we are using energy saving light bulbs, soy based inks and ensuring that our tire pressure is correct a la Obama? Are we going to give tire gauges out after each Mass?

Oh, and the best part is that Fr. Peter Daly, pastor of St. John Vianney in Prince Frederick, MD is one of they key speakers. Yes, some of you may know Fr. Daly's columns in the the Catholic Standard. He is the priest that believes that people don't kill people, only guns do. (No word on knives, baseball bats, hammers, and arsenic.) That it is Republicans who do bad things, union bosses are the salt of the earth and illegal aliens don't really break the law. (I wonder what he has to say about Obama, and so far, there seems to be silence.)

What are you guys and gals in Hyattsville thinking?
