A Little Humor...

One Sunday morning, the Fr. Mike noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it.

The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, "Good morning, Alex."

"Good morning Father Mike," he replied, still focused on the plaque.

"Father Mike, what is this?" Fr. Mike said, "Well, Alex, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service."

Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.

Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, "Which Mass, the 9am or the 11:00am?"


UPDATE (10:55AM)

Correction...Latin Mass time at St. John the Evangelist (Old Church) is 8am. Please accept my apologies.

By the way, sir, the new name for your web log should be something like:

The Outraged Catholic

The Outraged Catholic of the Washington, D.C. Archdiocese


If you use the word, 'angry,' Wuerl's propaganda machine will use it against you, referring to anger as one of the seven capital sins. They will then make you out to be a man of hatred, while presenting the vicious, selfish, and narcissistic Donald Wuerl as the ultimate man of love. Then you will be outraged squared and cubed.

Plus, if the Donald Wuerl propaganda machine ignores you, that means that they have nothing on you --- nothing by which to attack you. None the less ...

'Outraged' is something that God is, when confronted with a scandal ridden society. So, the name, Outraged Catholic, or something similar, would get the message across.

So ...

Wuerl got to you in the same amount of time it took for him to get to the Catholics in Pittsburgh? He hasn't lost a step.

Incidentally, the thing about Pittsburgh which needs to
kept in mind is that its population largely comprises the descendants of traditionally faithful Catholic nations which ended up getting caught behind the iron curtain. This includes the Polish, Croatians, Ukrainians, Slovenians, Hungarians, and Slovaks. Their ancestors and overseas cousins were vexed with Soviets trying to dismantle the Catholic Church in their homelands. They then saw Wuerl doing an equally effective version of dismantling in Pittsburgh.

Also remember that, while on a Pittsburgh area radio talk show, Malachi Martin called Donald Wuerl a fool who "will one day have to answer for all the sins he has allowed."

You are not alone in what you have realized/discovered.

Welcome to the apostacy, baby.
