Ash Wednesday 2021: Sprinkles, Social Media and Me

Today is Ash Wednesday. The COVID-19 pandemic is still in progress, so this one will be a bit different.

I’ll still get ash on my head. But instead of getting a thumb-drawn cross on my forehead, I’ll get a sprinkling on my head. Seems that this offends and affronts some Catholics.

Me? I’d prefer getting that cross on my forehead this year.

Archbishop Naumann: Biden’s self-contradictory Catholicism on abortion deserves correction

CNA Staff, Feb 16, 2021 / 04:18 pm (CNA).- President Joe Biden’s long self-presentation as a devout Catholic contradicts his strong political stands backing abortion. For Archbishop Joseph Naumann, this means Biden needs to acknowledge this, and the bishops need to correct him.

 

“The president should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic, and acknowledge that his view on abortion is contrary to Catholic moral teaching.
