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.
