The latest issue of the Catholic Standard is out, and they are celebrating a "Stone Ridge legend". That "legend" is Sister Anne Dyer, a longtime former principal of the school. She gave the commencement address on June 8, exhorting the graduates to "reflect the goals of Sacred Heart education in their lives". She and the staff are of the order known as the Society of the Sacred Heart.
Doesn't that sound like a lovely goal to which the graduates should aspire? Not so fast. Sister Dyer was headmistress when a number of us tried to get canceled their choice of commencement speaker - Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, who was at that time Lieutenant Governor of Maryland. Like most of the Kennedys, she is a rabid pro-abort. We returned next year to picket Sandra Day O'Connor, then-retired Supreme Court Justice, who made her pro-abortion proclivities well known, too. Since then, they kept their choices of commencement speakers under wraps, leading me to suspect that they too held positions contrary to Church teachings.
Getting back to the June 8 address, Sr. Dyer said that the five goals of a Sacred Heart education are "faith, intellect, social action, community and growth". However, she later let loose with a doozy regarding the transgender pronoun gobblygoop, contradicting all those lovely goals that she had enumerated. I'm going to copy and paste it straight from the Standard web page.
End quote. Yes she really said that. FULL STOP! If her students are graduating, thinking that they don't need to conform with God's design for them as women, she and her staff have done an abysmal job when it comes to Catholic education. If the students were hoodwinked into believing that they can monkey around with their genders, those five goals of Sacred Heart education were flushed down the toilet by these Sacred Heart sisters.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is but one example of the spiritual, moral and intellectual malaise that now grips Holy Mother Church.
