More on Progressio

Briefing and comment: John Smeaton has been digging into the charity Progressio, which manages combine a denial that it is Catholic with a listing in the national Catholic Directory, and the privilege of using Catholic churches (even St George's Cathedral in Southwark) to distribute their literature. As if this wasn't impressive enough, Smeaton points out that Progressio's 'partners' in Latin America include organisations which not only promote abortion but also took part in the failed campaign by Catholics for a Free Choice to oust the Vatican from the United Nations.

Progressio must be unmasked as a thoroughly anti-Catholic organisation: opposing not just the Church's teaching on condoms and abortion, but undermining the Church's influence in the world.

(See here for our dossier on Progressio, and here for our dossier on Catholics for a Free Choice.)

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
