Catholic Standard (Dec. 19th Edition)

I was shocked to see that there was a Dec. 19th issue of the Catholic Standard, when the last one was on the 12th. 

Must be working hard to hide the:

  • Msgr Rossi Investigation.  It is over 4 months since it was announced by the Diocese of Scranton and still no announcement by the Archdiocese of Washington.  
  • No announcement about the stabbing at the National Shrine.  Even though it seemed to be a domestic dispute, and another fallout from the poor hiring practices at the Shrine, still no word.

We have seem to have a lot of stories recently promoting +Francis, +Gregory and Catholic Charities. 

The new Catholic Standard almost reminds me of the Pravda days.

How CLINIC Subverts US Law

I have been a bit on Twitter lately, and it is amazing about how the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) is willing to subvert US immigration law.  

The southern border is overwhelmed, and the Trump Administration is trying to stem the flow of illegal aliens into the US.  

It was amazing to see the HATRED of Anna Gallagher, the Executive Director at the USCCB19 for the Trump Administration.  

It was amazing to see how many bishops applauded her.

It is amazing to read their tweets, which show that they want all borders destroyed.  

And we pay for it.

And yet, we are told that we must allow anyone who wants to come to the US in.  

It is time to ABOLISH CLINIC.  #AbolishCLINIC

Thank you Westminster (MD) Council (KofC #1393)

Kudos to the Westminster (MD) Council for sponsoring a Food for Families weekend at St. John Catholic Church.  They collected over 1,500 lbs. of food for the local St. Vincent de Paul food pantry.

And yes, I know that they are not part of the Archdiocese of Washington, but I wanted to recognize them.

Thank you to St. Cyprian Council (KofC #10008)

Congratulations to the St. Cyprian Council, part of St. Cyprian Catholic Church (DC), which raised $3,000 for the Capitol Hill Pregnancy Center.  They did it via the annual baby bottle campaign.

Nice job!

Nineteen Emails...


That is the number of emails I received from the Shrine in the month   Some are direct appeals for money, usually through the sale of a product.  Those that talk about a specific event, always have a button asking for donations.

To receive that many emails, must mean they are hurting.

Catholic Standard Update for Nov. 28th

Well, let's start off with the obvious: There is no mention of the Msgr. Rossi investigation at the National Shrine.  He continues just as he has done for years and +Gregory is just enabling it.  Even the advertisement regarding Mass times has Rossi's name still on it.  The Archdiocese has no shame. 

Let's take a look at some of the other stories in the Catholic Standard:

  • 125th Anniversary of St. Cyprian
  • There is a page and a half article on the Francis Factor with +Gregory, as part of a panel discussion.  One of the panelists is John Carr.  You may remember his, as being part of the USCCB, where he was responsible for shaping the political message.  He was a leftist, and still is.  From the USCCB he went to Harvard and is now at left leaning Georgetown.  You can read the nonsense from +Gregory and Carr there.  However, you probably should save your time.
  • A short article about the Pope's visit to Japan and nukes.
  • An article on retired sisters.
  • A Capuchine priest sentenced to 15 years for child sex abuse in August.  He served at the Shrine from 2014 to 2018.  Wonders if Msgr. Rossi knew anything about this?
  • Full page article on St. Cyprian and diversity
  • Article on St. Martin's in Gaithersburg and diversity
  • Article on one of the Sisters of Mercy. 
  • Interfaith Council of Washington.  Again, taking the que from +Francis, we seem to have more and  more about the feel good interfaith meetings, etc.  
  • Victory Housing marks 40 years.  
  • Leo Nester's death.

Msgr. Pope and the Pachamama

Msgr. Pope once again hits it on the head in regards to +Francis and the Pachamama.  

I worry about him because at some point +Gregory will probably come down hard on him.  

Watch it here and thank you LIFESITE NEWS.

Guess What is Still Missing from the Catholic Standard?

Yes, you guessed it, there is still no mention of the investigation of Msgr. Rossi, assigned to the National Shrine.

We have stories on:
  • the Kidane-Mehret Ethiopian Catholic Church
  • a Midway battle veteran (thank you for your service!)
  • the priest convocation
  • DACA (which BTW was an illegal action, but tell that to CLINIC)
  • Carmelite Cloister at Port Tobacco

And yet, there is no room for a story on the investigation of Msgr. Rossi.

You think that they are covering it up????

BTW, Archbishop Gregory will be at Christ the King Church on East-West Highway in Silver Spring this weekend.  

Wonder if I should set-up a large sign, asking about the investigation.

Happy (Belated) Anniversary to Myself!

Yes folks, it has been just over 12 years ago that I began this blog.  The years have passed faster than I would have ever thought. 

I had hoped that the corruption in this Archdiocese would be no more, and that I would be able to shut this down.   But, it is not to be.   

Today, with social media, the corruption of our prelates can no longer be hidden.  It eventually gets out.  

The problem is that even when they are confronted by it, they ignore it (and us) and just continue on, like there is nothing wrong.

I will continue to fight, as long as I am able to.


I call upon +Francis to vacate the Chair of St. Peter, for the sake of the Church and the Faithful.   

I call upon each of you to take up this call.  

Another Scandal at the Shrine!

According to the Standards of Conduct in the employee handbook for the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception given by a direct shrine inside source, 

You can go to Facebook for the full story.

Once again,  Msgr. Rossi must go.

Thanks to TradCatholic!

Guess What's Missing from this Week's Catholic Standard?

Well, the Catholic Standard came out this week and I was unable to get it on Friday's like normal (bad, Melvin, bad).

And after looking through it there was not one, but two things missing:

Yep, you guessed it, there was still no story on the investigation of Msgr. Rossi at the Basilica.  

Not a peep, not a word. Silence.  

It has been over 2.5 months since the investigation was announced by the Diocese of Scranton.  However, not a word from the Archdiocese of Washington.

Wonder if they have interviewed George Neumayr.  Probably not!

It will be a whitewash and at most, just a slap on the wrist.

Now, there is something else missing from the Catholic Standard:  No mention of Fr. James Martin, SJ, speaking at Holy Trinity in DC on Oct. 20th.   There was no mention of it in the story (Oct. 17th edition) on the 225th anniversary of Holy Trinity.   Nor is there any mention of it in this week's edition.  (Got a screen shot of the bulletin, just in case.)

I mean, I though everyone loved Fr. James!  +Gregory has welcomed him when he was in Atlanta.  +Francis has a one-on-one convo with him.  

But, this is typical of the Catholic Standard.  Do I think that the editor, Mark Zimmerman, is behind this.  Nope, this comes from the top.
