Dawn Eden as part of The Cardinal
Newman Society and in
cooperation with St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Worcester Diocese?s
Respect Life Office will be speaking. This will be on the eve
of Holy Cross having a conference with representatives from Planned
Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts.
In her talk, Miss Eden will detail
how Church teachings on chastity offer a solution to not only the
problem of teen pregnancy but also the wider problems of family
breakdown — while abortion, contraception, and other
“solutions” offered by Planned Parenthood and their allies exacerbate
those problems. She will also place the issue, in accordance with
Church teachings, into the context of what steps Catholic colleges can
and should take to promote Catholic values on life, love and sexuality.
This event is open to the public and The Cardinal Newman Society
encourages a strong showing of support for Bishop McManus?s principled
Bishop McManus has been great on this
and there is some chance that he will act on the provision of Canon Law
808 in regard to the university calling itself Catholic.
Deal Hudson has some commentary on this
aspect and the history of the document signed in 1967 at the Land
O’Lakes Conference that set the stage for the false autonomy from the
Church that is so prevalent.
My two cents is that if the school doesn’t start going down the right path that they should change their name from Holy Cross to Double Cross.
