A Catholic Standard Update (Aug. 22, 2019 edition)

Let the trumpets blare and the women swoon, we have a Catholic Standard update.  Yes, it is a few days late but here is it none the less...

  • Did you expect the story on +Gregory's Theology on Tap include anything about Msgr. Rossi.
  • We see an article on his comments regarding the President's tweets.  However, after this came out, there was no mention about the ongoing problems in Baltimore.  I guess he got some "cred" with the liberals on this.
  • Based on his current action (or inaction), I am not certain he has made Jesus Proud.
  • There is the story of Fr. Vazquez, who was convicted of sexual assault  and sexual abuse. I don't recall hearing about this but it is possible that I was traveling or away from the area, at the time.   It is interesting in the story that he was immediately removed from ministry, when the allegations were made.  Makes you wonder why Msgr. Rossi was not removed.
  • Providence Urgent Care Center has been opened.  
  • We have a new Secretary of Communications:  Paula Gwynn Grant.  She was the Dir. of Comms for the Archdiocese of Atlanta.  There are rumors about her salary (apx. $200K per year plus benefits).  Guess she will continue to keep things quiet for +Gregory.
  • Msgr. Enzler talks about illegal aliens and that we should do what we can to help.  Funny, how he does not mention that Catholic Charities gets millions in Federal $$ to take care of the illegals.
  • A nice story on St. John's (of Hollywood) program for youth.
  • We have a story on the shooting in El Paso, but not one on Dayton.  Could it be the political optics?
  • A story on the new residence for 13 retired priests in Hyattsville.
  • A story on Gloria Purvis of EWTN and Gene Kranz (NASA).  
  •  A story on the passing of Msgr. O'Connell.  May he rest in peace.
