The Abortion Duala and CUA

 Last week, The Daily Signal reported that Rachel Carbonneau was invited to a Lifespan Development course at Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, D.C. Carbonneau, who was an English lecturer at the school in the mid 2000s, is the founder of Family Ways, an LGBT-affirming doula company.

Among the topics Carbonneau discussed were her past experiences helping “transgender men.”

“I have some men who have given birth; it’s amazing, we call it seahorse birth. It’s lovely, especially when it’s a water birth,” Carbonneau said in a recording reportedly obtained by The Daily Signal.

Cryptocurrency is now accepted!

 Did you know that the Annual Catholic Services Appeal (formerly the Cardinal's Appeal), is now accepting cryptocurrency.  Yep, here is what they posted on their website...

The Name May Change but it is the same old...


This year, the "Cardinal's Appeal" is no more.

Yep, it has a new name: Annual Catholic Services Appeal.  

Now, one of the interesting things to note was that last week they had posted both the amount currently donated and the number of families/individuals who had donated.  This week, it is gone.

I would urge you not to give.  If you wish to give, give directly to your parish or an order serving the parish.

We have a "woke" Cardinal and the only way that he will get the message -- if he ever does -- is to withhold funding.

Don Bosco Cristo Rey HS Volunteer Killed


A 23-year-old upstate New York native who moved to Washington, DC to volunteer for an organization that helps high school students was shot and killed during an attempted robbery in the nation’s capital last week, police and loved ones said.

Recent college graduate Ryan Realbuto was fatally shot Thursday around 10 p.m. when an armed suspect demanded money as he and two friends walked home from a youth gathering at a church, according to family.

The victim hailed from the village of Pittsford, a Rochester suburb, and was a 2023 graduate of St. Bonaventure University. He had been in DC for six months and was working with the Capuchin Franciscan Volunteer Corps.

He volunteered at Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School, based in Maryland, where he helped at-risk students in a work-study program, his family said.

Why must children take abortion-tainted jabs to get a Catholic education in DC?


This includes not only the responsibility to uphold the dignity of human life from conception until natural death, but also rights of conscience – particularly for parents – when it comes to refusing vaccines produced or tainted by human cells lines derived from direct abortions.

Shamefully, ADW does not afford this freedom of conscience to families within its jurisdiction. For two decades, families requesting exemptions for morally objectionable vaccines – or any others – have been consistently denied admittance to archdiocesan Catholic schools. This McCarrick-era policy has been perpetuated by ADW with disturbing fidelity.

But the archdiocese is in conflict with its own Catholic identity in more ways than one.
