Sr. Mary Berchmans Hannan announced in a letter:

“Beginning with the fall issue of our alumnae magazine, we will publish news of our alumnae’s same-sex unions...”

Sr. Mary is the Monastery Superior & President Emerita of Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, D.C., a Catholic school for girls founded in 1799.

Elevating “diversity” above the duty to obey God, Sr. Mary explains:  “[our] newly formed Alumnae Diversity & Inclusion Committees strive daily to ensure that Visitation is welcoming to all members of our community, including LGBTQ students, alumnae, and families.”

Act now:  Tell Sr. Mary NOT to feature sinful unions against God’s law.

Reason #1:  Stop contradicting God.  God's marriage is only between one man and one woman.  Homosexual unions are unnatural and 100% sterile and deprive children of their biological mothers or fathers.

Reason #2:  Stop undermining moral values.  Morality is the keystone of the family and society.  If our Catholic schools no longer teach the truth -- in word and deed -- where will the next generation go to learn the truth?

Reason #3:  Stop confusing young students.  By publishing a photo of a same-sex couple in its magazine, Georgetown Visitation Prep School legitimizes sin, undermines Holy Matrimony, and causes scandal and confusion.

Since the order of nuns who run the school were founded by St. Francis de Sales, Doctor of the Church, let’s recall his teaching:

“Purity is the lily among virtues -- by it men approach to the Angels. There is no beauty without purity, and human purity is chastity.  We speak of the chaste as honest, and of the loss of purity as dishonor; purity is an intact thing, its converse is corruption. In a word, its special glory is in the spotless whiteness of soul and body.”

The saints never used terms like “diversity” to justify sin.

Lust is not love.
Charity without truth is false.
Fight for true Catholic education.
