“Wake up, America! That woman should never have been an invited speaker at any Catholic institution!” —Protester
A scary moment Sunday prior to the Gonzaga College High graduation commencement in Washington, DC. After having been rebuked by a pro-life Catholic convert, retired Cardinal 80-year-old Theodore Edgar McCarrick slips and nearly falls as he ascends stairs during procession. (Video below)
Pro-life activists picketed both inside and outside the graduation ceremonies in response to the Jesuit institution inviting Sister of Charity Carol Keehan to give the commencement speech.
Sister Keehan, as you’ll recall, ignored the USCCB pro-life position during the health care debate, and was in large part responsible for helping pass President Barack Obama’s socialized medicine legislation.
The pro-life community views the invitation as serious scandal, and yet one more example in which the Society of Jesus has failed in its mission of education through neglect of Church teachings.
That question lands at the feet of both the Superintendent of the Archdiocese Catholic School system and Archbishop Donald Wuerl.
