Back in March I wrote a post stating that the idea of the Saint Patrick's Day Parade should be abolished because March 17th always falls during Lent. Once the news that Cardinal Dolan has accepted to be the Grand Marshall in the NYC 2015 parade and that the organizers (the Ancient Order of Hibernians) will accept openly-gay marchers with the Cardinal's blessing, traditional priest Msgr. Charles Pope wrote on the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C. blog in favor of cancelling the parade and the Al Smith Dinner. (The post was removed because his bishop is Donna Wuerl; it was saved and archived by Life Site News.)
Thank you Monsignor for calling for the observance of Lent on March 17th instead of partying.
