Seminarians Fasting from CAFOD

Fr John Boyle and Fr Tim Finigan have posted some very interesting information on CAFOD. While we at Orthfully Catholic believe in and support the work of the Bishops of England and Wales to help the Third World we cannot in all good conscience support the work of CAFOD because of their position on the use of contraception in the fight against HIV/AIDS and their employment of a celebrity who claims to be a Catholic and yet lives with his girlfriend and uses contraception.

We prefer to support agencies listed by Frs Boyle and Finigan, particularly Aid to the Church in Need. During Lent at the Seminary we have the option to have a fasting lunch every Friday so participation in Lent Fast Day becomes unnecessary.

We would like to urge all our readers to give their Lenten alms to these Catholic Agencies that actually keep the teachings of the Faith in their work.
