Let's Look Below the Surface at Canadian Catholic News: The Catholic Register

We all have a duty to the truth. Sometimes it's not all that pleasant.

- Prof. Thomas Symons of Sacred Heart College in Peterborough receives the St. Sylvester Knighthood. What a huge honour! Prof. Symons has been a servant of Catholic education for many years and has played a significant role in the establishment of that brand-new college. It is amazing what a little episcopal help can do!

Sacred Heart is in its first or second official year. Our Lady Seat of Wisdom, in the next diocese over, is in its twelfth, and nothing like that has occurred here, nothing like that at all...

Read the Register's story here.

- The Register's story announcing the 'kicking off' of D & P's Share Lent Appeal must have fallen under the knives of some hyper-sensitive editors. No reference at all to ONLY THE LARGEST STORY IN THE LAST FEW YEARS IN THE CANADIAN CATHOLIC CHURCH (i.e. the expose of D & P by LifeSiteNews) is kind of humorous, not to mention pretty much a lie of omission.

Read it here.

P.S. The CCCB is still sticking to the story that it was the Holy Father's Encyclical, Caritas in Veritate, that is behind its "ongoing process of renewal." bahahaha!

- Embarrassingly, the Archdiocese of Montreal has spent money on an advertisement in a newspaper calling for people to pray for their NHL team. But this theologian is not amused. They state that "any call to acknowledge God is worthwhile." What's wrong with that claim? Let me count the ways.

If you are going to become irrelevant, become irrelevant, Archdiocese, don't embarrass the rest of us in the meantime.

Read it here.

He is watching you, Catholic Register, you newspaper you!
