2/3's Of The Holy Family... Anyone Else Notice That?
I wonder if Cardinal Rigali really is that influential after all

First Our Lady, Now St. Joseph.

I wonder what emboldened Über-Obafreak, Chris Matthews, to literally challenge one of the most conservative clerics in America... in his own back yard? Could it have been Cardinal Rigali's thunderous silence in the Notre Dame controversy?

And that St. Joseph's University is Jesuit-run (hence, their Catholic-cred is shot to hell anyways) doesn't help.

Here's some of the article from LifeNews.com; (Emphasis mine)
Pro-Abortion MSNBC Host Chris Matthews to Speak at Saint Joseph's University

Philadelphia, PA (
LifeNews.com) -- Though the University of Notre Dame is coming under intense criticism for its decision to have pro-abortion President Barack Obama give its graduation address, the Catholic Saint Joseph’s University has invited pro-abortion MSNBC political talk show host Chris Matthews to give commencement.

That is despite Matthews long-standing pro-abortion views and his recent comparison of pro-life advocates to terrorists.

Like Notre Dame, Saint Joseph's will also give Matthews an honorary degree at the gradation ceremonies. Matthews is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross but his own Catholic faith has diverged from the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

His political career saw him as a top staffer for pro-abortion former House Speaker Tip O'Neil and he is an unabashed supporter of Obama.

In March, Matthews referred to pro-life advocates who oppose pro-abortion Health Secretary nominee Kathleen Sebelius as terrorists.

During his program "Hardball," Matthews worried that Sebelius would become the target of "the terrorism of the, of the anti-abortion people." Immediately after making the remark, Matthews appeared to realize his mistake and corrected himself to say, "I mean verbal terrorism."

St. Joseph's is defying the request the nation's Catholics bishops made in a document providing instructions for Catholic colleges and universities. “The Catholic community and Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles,” said the bishops said in a 2004 statement. “They should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions.”
As disgusting as what's happening at Notre Dame and St. Joseph's, we are all disgusted, but not suprised.

After all, we were warned.
The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests).

Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."
~ Our Lady of Akita.

I have to wonder if his leg will get all tingly in the presence of The Presence. I happen to know that my husband was converted not only by Our Lady who heard my long and serious prayers, but also by moving into a house in direct proximity to the Catholic Church and tabernacle here in small town, USA. You never know what might occur out of this obvious and horrendous scandal.

I'm just sayin'. God draws straight with crooked lines, and Obama and Matthews are just about the crookedest.

I sent letters to every Bishop in the USA today asking them to get involved more than just a comment to end this assult on church teaching and authority. If they do not want to act, they should disband and save the money spent on their committees and meetings and endless chatter with no firm resolve. They are being challenged in open warfare far more than some silly ass nun thinking she is a priest. This goes to the heart of church authority and if they fail here, pack it in.
