Cardinal George lauds Catholic Campaign for Human Development

Catholic World News - October 18, 2013

In a brief video posted on YouTube, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago lauded the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, the US bishops’ controversial anti-poverty program.

The Campaign, said Cardinal George, has “brought the glad tidings of the Gospel to many of our brothers and sisters who are poor.”

The Campaign “calls us to sow the hope that Jesus Christ brings, by shaping our society with God’s love, opposing injustice, saturating our common life with charity and truth,” he added.

    I fear that he knows full well the scandalous goings on with the CCHD. A lot of mischief has come out of Chicago - i.e. Bernardin, Alinsky's influence (Call to Action) With all of the natural enemies of the Church about, why on earth must we have the likes of CCHD and encouragement of it by Cardinal George and other Catholic "leaders?"

    A mistake in judgment. He's poorly advised.
