Week in Review – Bishop Supports Priest Who Said Funeral Mass for 115 Babies; Popular Twitter Account Exposes the ‘Left’ for What it is
In the last issue of Pro-Life This Week, we discussed the discovery of 115 aborted children outside a Washington, DC, abortion facility.
In the article, it was mentioned that a priest had said a funeral Mass for all these children and then buried the 110 first-trimester babies. Until Holy Week, that priest’s name had not been revealed. It has since been disclosed that Father Bill Kuchinsky, who serves as a board member and spiritual advisor to American Life League, was the priest who fulfilled this faithful duty to these 115 children.
In a Catholic News Agency article, Father Bill says he was honored to play a part in the burial of these children. Father Bill’s bishop, His Excellency Mark Brennan of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston (WV) fully supports his actions, telling CNA:
Father William Kuchinsky’s Mass for and burial of around 100 children aborted at a Washington, D.C., abortion facility follows a long Christian tradition of practicing the corporal work of mercy for the dead, honoring their physical remains and burying them with love. I fully approve Father Kuchinsky’s caring actions. They remind us that these were real human children, not lifeless things—until their lives were unjustly taken from them.
A popular Twitter account is facing liberal backlash . . . for reposting things liberals have already posted.
The account, “Libs of TikTok,” is known for re-posting videos of teachers who force LGBT ideology on their students, some as young as kindergarten or pre-school age. The account was recently the subject of a WaPo exposé that not only shared the name of the anonymous account holder but included personal information such as her job and home address.
Despite these personal attacks on the “Libs of TikTok” account holder, she vows that she will not be silenced, stating that parents have a right to know exactly what is being taught to their children.
