First, apologies to all those who read this blog on a regular basis. I have been quite busy with work and a number of personal matters. This may continue for the next few weeks, but hopefully not.
Well, this week's Catholic Standard has a number of articles. In taking a quick glance through, nothing which gives me indigestion.
The key one is he large number of retirements and transfers of priests in the Archdiocese. I am always fascinated to read about many of our younger priests who come from a different occupation before hearing God's call.
In addition, we have a story on the ordination of Fr. Andrew Daly and his father Deacon Michael Daly. Reminds me of Bishop Knestout. Ad Multos Annos!
Congratulations to Fr. Patrick McCaffrey who celebrates his 50th Anniversary as a priest.
We have the articles on Miguel Diaz's nomination as the US Ambassador to the Vatican, another story on abortionist Tillman, and one on Judge Sotomayor.
Although the article on Sotomayor states:
Although critics of Obama were quick to decry Sotomayor as "a liberal activist," her judicaial record does not reflect that approach on issues including religious liberty and restrictions on federal funding being use for abortions.
Do you really think that the Most Merciful, Lord High Barack Obama would choose someone who is not pro-abortion for the court. It is a litmus test for him and the Democratic Party. Give me a break. Rush Limbaugh pegged her as a stealth judge, years ago for this. I trust his judgement before that of the Catholic News Service.
We say good bye to St. Mary, Star of the Sea School in Indian Head. It is closing as part of closing of Catholic schools in Charles County. I am waiting for the shoe to drop here in Montgomery and PG Country later this year and early next.
Oh, and since every parish is required to have a number of copies (whether they like it or not), pick up your copy on Sunday, if you don't subscribe.
