Diocese of Des Moines Facebook page- ”Thanks to Mercy Medical Center for providing this image from Africa, taken of Msgr. Frank Bognanno celebrating Mass on the eve of the Epiphany. The service, attended by Catholics, Christians, Jews and Muslims, was for a group of cancer survivors and caregivers, including Msgr. Bognanno, who are climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.”

It’s incredibly ironic that the secular media criticizes the Church, the largest charitable organization in the world, on its stance on condoms, which actually do little to prevent the spread of AIDS. Afterall, people sometimes don’t use condoms (either they are drunk, run out and have sex anyways, etc), and condoms can fail.

Anyways check out the read its very good.
