The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, announced that they have signed an agreement to buy Washington's Pope John Paul II Cultural Center, as a house of studies. This order is thriving and has two communities in the Diocese of Austin. They are looking at starting a mother-house in our diocese. Now, we just need to get them to send some sisters to a school closer to St. Mary's.
Here is a video announcing it all:
Anti-Catholicism / Anti-Christian sentiment has always been an ugly part of politics. But, this ad might be the worst example I have ever seen. Not only that, but it is in support of a Catholic candidate opposing another Catholic candidate. Thomas Peters has more.
The Population Research Institute does amazing work. They show how the Government healthcare plan has allowed for abortion and expanded coverage for it, through back-door deals.
