In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations. -- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
When you sell the House of God for filthy lucre, you rip the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.
Do not forget St. Patrick's, the proceeds of which are being drained from parish coffers as we speak, to the tune of about $100,000. (It is nearly the end of 2012 and no financials for 2011 yet so it could be much more than that.) The sacrifice of IHM is rumored to pay for the take down of the Brennan Center--making room for a parking lot--and a new boiler for St. Mary's.
If you look at the listing it claims IHM is vacant (click on the picture and it will enlarge). Really? I guess two priests don't live there, and I guess the youth group doesn't have a Mass there regularly. And I suppose that the family who contributed thousands of dollars to fix up Rogers Hall for the youth group doesn't mind that it is being sold, either.
All Saints...all one. That is the meme.
