Last weekend was the 2nd weekend in August so once again it was time for the Madonna Della Cava Festival at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Fitchburg Mass.

As always the festival began with a procession

The 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus were on hand as an escort as the Roma band of Boston played

The Banner processed into the Church to its spot as hymns were sung

Fitchburg Mayor Steve DiNatale gave a short talk on the history of the festival and his memories of it over the years

After the mass the Banner again with the Roma Band and Knights Processed to the Church all where all were fed

A gallery of the processions follow.

I spoke to Sr. John Dominic Rasmussen of the Dominican Sisters of Mary at the Catholic Marketing Network

She was a tough interview to get, everyone seemed to want to speak with her, finally I had to pack up my equipment and go to her booth to get the job done.

I loved what I saw here not just the cute animated videos of Sister…

1: Why Educate in Virtue? from Dominican Sisters of Mary on Vimeo.

(it’s odd to see Sr. animated but trust me she is just as animated in person)

…but pages on the individual virtues like Modesty

MODESTY
MEANING

  • Purity of heart in action, especially in regards to dress and speech

LOOKS LIKE

  • Dressing in an appropriate manner
  • Dressing in private
  • Not bragging about talents, achievements etc.
  • Not being eager to talk about yourself
  • Not trying to be the center of attention in word or action

SOUNDS LIKE

  • I will wear this skirt because it isn’t too short or too tight.
  • I need some privacy.
  • Silence

and Circumspection

CIRCUMSPECTION

MEANING

  • Careful consideration of circumstances and consequences

LOOKS LIKE

  • Pausing to think
  • Thinking before acting
  • Praying before acting
  • Asking for advice from an older, trusted person

SOUNDS LIKE

  • I should wait before I respond.
  • Let me think about that.
  • Jesus, help me to do what you would do.
  • May I ask you for advice about something?
  • Let me think about what I should do.

By an odd coincidence just a few minutes after I published my youtube interview with Sr. I saw linked at Stacy McCain’s website this PJ Media story about the education that Planned Parenthood wants to deliver instead:

Planned Parenthood thinks your child needs to know about transgenderism and masturbation at the tender age of three. The Daily Wire reports:

In new guidelines  issued on the official Planned Parenthood website, the  federally subsidized corporation explains how parents should talk to their pre-schoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, and transgenderism, even offering tips on how to tell if your toddler “is transgender or gender nonconforming.”

Advice from the guidelines includes:

Be mindful of how you talk around your kid, too. Talking to (or in front of) your daughter about growing up and having boyfriends or marrying a man (and vice versa) sends the message that girls are supposed to like boys, and boys are supposed to like girls, and that anything else is wrong or not normal. While kids this young don’t know their sexual orientation yet, assuming they’re straight could make them sacred to come to you or feel bad about themselves later. This can lead to mental health issues, unhealthy relationships, and taking more health risks when they reach their teenage years.

So, along with freaking parents out over potentially triggering a mental illness in their child, Planned Parenthood provides the litmus test for determining whether or not your child is transgender.

The most frightening words from that piece are “Federally Funded”.

Stacy McCain sums it up pretty well

Amazingly the same people who insist that removing federal funding from Planned Parenthood’s attempts to teaching 4 year olds about Masturbation and transgenderism is a sign of hate would scream bloody murder at the thought of the Federal government funding Sr. John Dominic’s Education in Virtue curriculum.

So I ask the obvious question? If you are a parent Which program would you want your young child to be in so they would grow up to be a responsible and sensible adult?
