The annual Glennon Sunday collection in parishes to benefit Cardinal Glennon Children�s Medical Center will continue, according to Archbishop Raymond L. Burke…[noting] that the Glennon Sunday collection, to be held the weekend of June 2 and 3, “will go directly to the medical center and not the foundation, as it had in the past.”
…the archbishop again reiterated the archdiocese�s commitment to the medical center, which was founded in 1956 with the support of the archdiocese.
The archbishop noted that the Glennon Sunday collection will continue to be sent directly to the medical center until the foundation refrains from featuring at its benefit “performers or anyone else who is advocating moral evils or advocating positions contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church.” [More from St. Louis Review.]
Why is Burke doing all this? I’ll let the man speak for himself:
“I hold to the Church�s teaching. This is all about the Church�s teaching. It has nothing to do with me personally.”
Amen. Do read the article, it’s very informative.
