50th Anniversary of Cardinal Wuerl and the Catholic Standard

The Catholic Standard, the paper of the Archdiocese of Washington, ran a special on the 50th anniversary of Cardinal Wuerl's ordination to the priesthood.  It was a very glossy production, with lots of advertisements, congratulating the Cardinal and articles on him and about him.  

However, there seems to have been an omission from all of the articles about the successes.  And that is, the closing/merging of a number of Catholic elementary schools, including one just last June.

Add another omission besides the closing and merging of schools. You will absolutely be shocked at what Wuerl has gotten away with over a period of nearly ten years. It seems he has been quite the thief. He can forgive $230.000 worth of debt as an act of mercy and be called "very generous" when in fact, he has been stealing from parishes. Why would a parish have over $200,000 worth of debt when it should have had plenty of money to pay off any debts because it was renting its school building and should have had over $1,000,000 in recent years to show for it? Those cracked steps and walkways should not be seen in this parish also. Please people, please Church leaders, let's have an audit of the finances of this Church. Which Church? The next time you go to the Georgia Ave. Walmart, please step up the street just a little and inspect Nativity. Please ask the Pastor where all the money went. Look at the Church grounds. Ask about the capital improvements. Cardinal Wuerl, did any of the money go to renovating your residence?
