Many thanks to those of you who have been praying the Lorica for this intention.
Our Catholic veterans refused to permit clapping fornication theme to tarnish the honor of our great Catholic Saint and the service we offer to God and our country as Irish Catholics.
The parade was a smashing success.
The streets were jammed packed.
I can't say enough to convey the gratitude Irish Catholics feel for the leadership of the Catholic Action League's CJ Doyle.
The craven silence of the Archdiocese and the Mass Catholic Conference does not go unnoticed.
CJ is passionate about working for the glory of God and His Church. Please pray for his apostolate and if you are inclined, support his work with a small donation which can be sent to the following.

CATHOLIC ACTION LEAGUE CONGRATULATES
ALLIED WAR VETERANS COUNCIL
The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts today congratulated the Allied War Veterans Council---the organizers of Boston's Saint Patrick's Day Parade---for successfully resisting the political strong arm tactics of Mayor Martin Walsh and Congressman Stephen Lynch. Walsh and Lynch tried to pressure the veterans to abandon their 22 year prohibition against groups which identify their sexual preferences from participating in the event. (Lynch, ironically, ended up marching in the parade.)
The Catholic Action League hailed the veterans for their "determined defense of their Faith, moral principles, and constitutional rights."
Catholic Action League Executive Director commented: "In the end, the veterans refused to surrender, despite demands from politicians, criticism from the media, tensions with some sponsors, and duplicity from homosexual activists. It was an admirable example of courage, fidelity, and integrity."
"The homosexual group which tried to force its way into the parade cared nothing for Saint Patrick or Irish culture, and had nothing but contempt for the Catholic religion. MassEquality wanted to use the parade to promote its own agenda. As this controversy unfolded, more and more ordinary people came to understand that."
The predecessor organization of the Catholic Action League provided legal assistance to the Allied War Veterans Council in Hurley v. Irish American GLIB Association.
