+Gregory Cancels Pontifical Mass at Shrine on Aug. 14th

From Rorate Caeli: 

A pontifical high Mass had been planned for 14 August in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

Following Pope Francis' motu proprio ...Cardinal Wilton Gregory, archbishop of Washington, demanded the celebrant of the planned 14 August Mass -- Archbishop Thomas Gullickson -- submit a formal request for permission.  Mind you, all permissions had already been attained prior to the motu proprio

Today, Archbishop Gullickson received a reply from Cardinal Gregory.  Permission:  denied.

Read the full story here at RORATE CAELI. 


All I can say is you cannot trust +Gregory.

Msgr. Burrill assigned temporarily in Potomac, MD (UPDATE)

Update:  July 27, 2021   5pm

 It seems that Msgr. Burrell will not be on the altar this weekend at Our Lady of Mercy.  The most recent bulletin does not have him on the schedule.  We will keep on eye on this.


 It seems that Msgr. Burrill, the former General Secretary to the USCCB, who resigned after the investigative report by The Pillar, is headed on Sundays to Our Lady of Mercy in Potomac, MD.  

 Why did he resign?  

It seems that he was a frequent user of GRINDR.  Don't know that that is?  It is a hook up app for homosexuals. 

This image is taken from the Parish Bulletin dated July 25th:



Note that it is possible that this bulletin was produced/printed before the scandal hit on July 20th.  Possible he will not show.  Possible that he will.   

If you are from Our Lady of Mercy, love to hear from you.

+Gregory and Traditionis Custodes

 As you know, +Francis issued Traditionis Custodes earlier this months.  It gives bishops the right to restrict what is commonly known as The Latin Mass (TLM). 

Here is what has been written in the Catholic Standard, as of July 26th:

Cardinal Wilton D. Gregory of Washington told priests of the archdiocese July 16: ”I will prayerfully reflect upon ‘Traditionis Custodes’ in the coming weeks to ensure we understand fully the Holy Father’s intentions and consider carefully how they are realized” in the archdiocese.

In the meantime, until there is “further guidance,” he said, he would allow “those who celebrate the Mass using the liturgical books issued before 1970 to continue to do so ... in the days to come.”

Fr. White & Bishop Knestout - Some Interesting Comments...


Although Fr. White and Bishop Knestout are no longer part of the Archdiocese of Washington and are now both part of the Diocese of Richmond, their story has roots here.   

Fr. Z gives an update to the story on his blog, but what I find really interesting are the comments.  

This leads me to my original premise that something happened between them.  Could it have been the sermon on Humanae Vitae?   Could Fr. White have been called to meet in Hyattsville over this with +Knestout?

As I have said, and others speculate, there is much more to what is going on in Richmond than meets the eye.  And the roots to the matter are here in this Archdiocese. 


On a separate note to the person who sends me the long, rambling comments.  Thank you for reading.  However, if you are interested in being published, please stay on the topic and not go off to all sorts of other stuff.  Thanks.

St. Jude Regional Catholic School and MoCo Council Member Will Jawando


A private school run by the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., in Rockville, Maryland, is facing scrutiny for policies in its student handbook banning braids, cornrows, twists or dreadlocks, rules which parents of Black children feel are discriminatory.

In a letter to St. Jude Regional Catholic School, Montgomery County Council member Will Jawando said a constituent preparing to send her child to the school had reached out to say she was “extremely distressed” about the school’s hairstyle policy.

You can read the entire story here.


My take:  

1.  Seems Jawando put out a press briefing w/o talking with anyone at the Archdiocese or School about the matter.  

2.  Will Jawando is one of the least effective MoCo Council Members.  If he wasn't screaming racism at every turn, know one would know of him.  He is a Race Pimp.

What has Fr. Daly been up to these days?


Some of you may remember Fr. Peter Daly, the former pastor over at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Prince Frederick, MD.

When we last saw him, he was on the Leadership Team of Association of US Catholic Priests (AUSCP) but is now on the Board of Directors of New Ways Ministry.

He was always on the leftist scale of priests in the Archdiocese of Washington, and I felt that he was assigned to St. John Vianney for many years, due to his radical nature.  I could be right, but I could also be wrong.

Well it seems that LifeSite News caught up with Fr. Daly.  Watch the video here.  

Also, Church Militant reports on this and the various bishops, who support AUSCP and the promotion of same-sex marriage.
