A Maryland crisis pregnancy center has launched a mobile clinic that one board member told The Register gives the center the ability to “help those visiting abortion clinics.”
“We are in the process of launching the clinic,” Centro Tepeyac Director Mariana Vera said in an e-mailed statement. “We have done test runs and should officially launch in full operation in the near future. The mobile clinic will extend our counseling and support services to women in numerous locations throughout Montgomery County. The mobile clinic will also offer women the opportunity to receive free abdominal ultrasounds to see their babies.”
Dan Smyth, a board member for Centro Tepeyac, explained that the...READ MORE
Remember the old joke about the man who says to the priest, “I never go to your church, Father. The place is full of hypocrites!”
Priest answers, “Well come along anyway. We can always make room for one more.”
In the gospel Jesus heals a woman on the Sabbath and the nit-picking Pharisees pick him up on it for breaking the religious law.
Jesus loses his cool and calls the Pharisee a hypocrite.
What tickles me is not the fact that the religious leader is a hypocrite, but that Jesus calls him on it. You see, I wouldn’t dare to call anyone a hypocrite because I know what a hypocrite I am.
Blaming someone for being a hypocrite is one of those spiritual problems where you end up chasing...READ MORE
Chest-feeding. Apparently it’s a thing now.
Just when you thought the whole gender-redefinition thing couldn’t get wackier, we get this (content warning). The picture says it all. Actually, it screams madness. We are expected to see this person as brave. She is not. And “Evan” is not just an isolated sideshow. She is part of a disturbing new movement.
The Atlantic recently featured the pioneering work of a woman from Winnipeg who asks that we believe her to be a man named Trevor MacDonald. She had her breasts removed under the misguided belief that “chest masculinization surgery”, as they call it, would make her feel like more of the man she believes herself to be. Curiously though,...READ MORE
Every now and again problems arise relating to how real estate around the Vatican is used.
The latest such headache concerns a bid by the McDonald’s fast food chain to open a restaurant on Vatican-owned property, just a few steps from St. Peter’s Square.
The office responsible for managing Vatican property, the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA), has agreed to the idea. Some of the seven cardinals living in a block above the proposed new diner are not so keen and have protested by writing a letter to Pope Francis, asking him to intervene.
According to Il Fatto Quotidiano, Cardinals Gianfranco Ravasi, Andrea Cordero Lanza di Montezemolo, Dario Castrillon Hoyos...READ MORE
Every October, in the concrete valleys amidst Gotham's steel and glass cliffs, where the law of gravity itself seems held in abeyance, New York City's best kept secret is openly displayed for all to see.
On the first Saturday of October, a month dedicated to Mary in her moniker as Queen of the Rosary, Catholics descend upon the Upper Westside's gritty, hardboiled streets and march out of love of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The Marian Parade started at noon and processed north along Amsterdam Avenue beginning at 86th Street and ending at 107th Street―approximately one mile―at Ascension Parish.
The pilgrims marching in this year's 19th Annual Parade was met with pleasant temperatures and a...READ MORE

Is there a Catholic way of learning something?
Math? Science? History?
It’s an intriguing question. We wrestled with the question this past year at The Cardinal Newman Society, while developing proposed Catholic curriculum standards for Catholic education.
It’s easy to understand that Jesus is the Master Teacher. “Rabbi,” His disciples called Him. A Catholic teacher should emulate Christ and should lead young people to Him.
But saying there’s a Catholic approach to mathematics evokes a vision of Jesus writing in the sand at the Sea of Galilee, attempting to teach pre-calculus to a school of fishermen. Oh, if only Catholics did have a divinely simple method of advanced mathematics! It’s...READ MORE
