  • The truth hurts, especially if you love the Catholic Church. The institution is failing the faithful. Pray for the handful of US Bishops who are trying to keep the faith.

  • I just came across a concerning statement calling for the end of parish centered schools by Patricia Weitzel O’Neill,member of the NCEA Leadership and Planning Team for the Common Core Catholic Initiative. She said priests are I’ll prepared to oversee educational enterprises in the complexity of today’s society. Also, Ms Weitzel O’Neill attacked independent Catholic schools faithful to the Magisterum and Homeschooling Catholics as “faux Catholics”.

  • Please share this widely, especially with Bishops.
