I did not go to the installation ceremony of Bishop Wilton.
I cannot support him, especially after his description of Cardinal Bernadin, his mentor, in the Catholic Standard.
Did not read it?
Then you missed his description about Cardinal Bernadin's gay liaisons. Oh, yes, well, Archbishop Wilton did not mention that among other things. But I bet we will be talking about those things down the road.
However, the Church Militant takes a look at the Cardinals in attendance at his installation. If you don't know about them, it is an eye opener.
Watch it here --> Church Militant: Pretty in Red.
This is the point that I have been trying to get through to family members that by publishing homosexual marriages in the Visitation alumni magazine, you are showing that you are not only celebrating but in a back-door manner, saying that church teaching is wrong.
My hope, but I know that I will be disappointed, that Archbishop Wilton will be heard on these sorts of matters and not remain silent.
Thank you Msgr. Filardi!
From LifeSite News:
A priest of the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. has publicly rebuked the leadership of nearby Georgetown Visitation Prep for deciding to publish same-sex union announcements in its alumni magazine.
Monsignor Edward Filardi, pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Bethesda, Maryland, penned an open letter in his parish bulletin chiding the venerable girls’ school, founded in 1799.
I knew it was only a matter of time that "Visi" would do this. Most of the religious order is gone at the school. When visiting the school about 10 years ago, I did not hear a mention of Catholic teaching except for the term "social justice." Shame on Visitation.
Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School, a Catholic girls’ high school
in the nation’s capital, has spurred controversy by announcing it will
begin highlighting same-sex “marriages” among other news in the school’s
“The Church is clear in its teaching on same-sex marriages. But, it is
equally clear in its teaching that we are all children of God, that we
each have dignity and are worthy of respect and love,” Sister Mary
Berchmans, president emerita of the school, wrote in a letter early May,
the Daily Caller reported.
“As I have prayed over this contradiction, I keep returning to this
choice: we can focus on Church teaching on gay marriage or we can focus
on Church teaching on the Gospel commandment of love.
Unfortunately, Sr. Mary seems to forget that you need to call out the sin and not to honor it. She honors it and is just another reason why her order is shrinking each and every year.

Prominent clergymen and scholars including Fr. Aidan Nichols, one of
the best-known theologians in the English-speaking world, have issued an
open letter accusing Pope Francis of committing heresy. They ask the
bishops of the Catholic Church, to whom the open letter is addressed, to
"take the steps necessary to deal with the grave situation" of a pope
committing this crime.
The authors base their charge of heresy on the manifold
manifestations of Pope Francis' embrace of positions contrary to the
faith and his dubious support of prelates who in their lives have shown
themselves to have a clear disrespect for the Church's faith and
