Scene on the Red Line

A few months ago, I was traveling on the Metro's Red Line.  

I noticed a man in a wheelchair get on, and he was talking loudly on his cell phone.  From what I can remember, it seemed he was talking to his wife.

As the train moved along, the man in the wheelchair ended his conversation and looked around.  He said something to a man sitting across from him.  It just so happened that the man (not in the wheelchair) was praying the rosary.  The two got into a brief conversation about the Rosary, which parish they belong to, etc.   

After a couple of stops, the conversation ended and the man sitting went back to his Rosary and the man in the wheelchair got on his cellphone and began to chat again.

Catholic Standard Must be Hard Up for Revenue

I meant to post something about this last year, but I did not have the time.  However, I once again noticed that there was an insert for the Central Union Mission.  This insert, an envelope, requested funds so that they could provide Thanksgiving Dinner for the homeless and those who cannot afford a meal.

Now, I have nothing against the Central Union Mission.  I have read about them on their website and really have nothing against what they are attempting to do and their general mission in DC.  Therefore, this posting is not about them but about the Catholic Standard.

I wonder why they would accept the solicitation of funds for a non-Catholic church group, when many of our parishes are asking for canned food and funds for those who are less fortunate at Thanksgiving.  You would think that before the Standard advertises for other groups, the focus would be on Catholic parishes.

The Catholic Standard must really be hurting for revenue, if is accepting advertisements from other church groups.
