Remember This When They Pass The Collection Plate Your Way This Sunday
Did you know that many parishes will have a second collection for CUA this Sunday?

Catholic University of America has announced that they will be hosting Sen. John Kerry (D-MA)to speak on campus this semester despite initial opposition by the office of University Center, Student Programs and Events (UCSPE).

Remember.... this is the same "Catholic" who has a 100 percent abortion rights voting record, according to NARAL Pro-Choice America. During the 2004 presidential debates, Kerry said he was personally against abortion, but would not "take what is an article of faith for me and legislate it for someone who doesn't share that article of faith."

If this were a debate between Kerry and... oh, say... Sen. Sam Brownback, or Father Fessio, no problem. But this isn't the case. Here is someone who has essentially told Christ; His Church; and every faithful Catholic who's ever lived, to go screw themselves. And "Catholic" University has just given him the soapbox to preach from.

Like I said, remember this when they pass the collection plate your way during the second collection this upcoming Sunday.

Thanks for the heads up. Even though I live in Canada, I'm vacationing in the USA right now, and will be going to Mass in Boston this weekend. Got it! No $$$ to the second heretical collection endorsed by the USCCB!

At our churh, the local masoleum where the clasical Mass is held, we have a collection for higher education EVERY month. It's called the seminarian burse fund and goes exclusively to FSSP's Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary on Nebraska for the education of future Latin Mass priests. (It costs $49,000 to put a man through the seven years of priestly training.)

For the first time that I can remember there was no collection for Catholic U this weekend.
