I must write a word of thanks to the doctors, nurses, nurse assistants, all the staff, my dear friend and parishioner, Dr. John Conlon (Chief Medical Officer) for the great care they gave my father during his recent stay. His care was superb. Everyone was friendly, courteous, and caring. St. Anne’s staff imbue the Catholic teaching on the dignity of the human person. God bless you all!
Recently, the Diocese of Manchester brought out prohibitions agains Br. Andre and the Saint Benedict Center in Richmond NH.
HOWEVER, it is important to be clear that the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of Saint Benedict Center in Harvard, MA are IN NO WAY UNDER PROHIBITIONS.
The Slaves in Still River (Harvard, MA) are in good standing with the Most Reverend Robert J. McManus, Bishop of Worcester. And in 2017, Bishop McManus raised the Still River community to a Public Association of the Faithful.
I am privileged and honored to call the Slaves in Still River, both the Brothers and the Sisters, my friends. Below is the Decree of Erection given by Bishop McManus.
Please help them keep their good name by spreading this information and avoiding fake news.
As we continue to deal with the recent and ongoing scandal, I decided to have a special Holy Hour in Reparation for sins of Clergy and for their Sanctification. We must start with prayer and return to prayer. This does not mean we cannot and should not take other actions. But we must pray. God needs to be the center of all we do in this situation, because leaving Him out has got us where we are today. Anyway, I will be streaming the Holy Hour at 3:00 pm here. If you want to join along and pray from home, you can download my program here. Below is the opening pray I wrote for this Holy Hour. So please pray. We must respond to Our Lady of Fatima’s call to offer prayers and sacrifice in reparation for the sins of men.
I moved the site to a new server and have had a few issues. My galleries are broken. I will fix them during the week. If you find something wrong, please send me an email so I can get it fixed.
We are living through one of the low points in the history of the Church. So how do you survive scandal? We’ll talk about that in this episode. (Please forgive the quality of the recording. It was either publish, or hold off for another week.)
