By Fr. Gerald E. Murray, The Catholic Thing, Nov. 19, 2018
Note to Readers: We are happy to announce that our colleague and friend Fr. Gerald E. Murray, J.C.D. will be the recipient of the 2018 Fr. Benedict Groeschel Good Counsel Award at a dinner in New York City on December 10 (tickets available here). The entire Papal Posse – Raymond Arroyo, Fr. Murray, and I – will be present, live in public for the very first time. Good Counsel provides “home and hope for mothers and babies,” and we encourage you to support their efforts. Speaking of support, thanks to all you readers who have donated to our end-of-year fund drive so far. We still have a long way to go and I remind those who still have not donated that everything we do depends on your support. For example: Readers sometimes write me asking about our relationship with EWTN. I inform them, usually to their surprise, that in the five years that the 2013 Conclave Crew morphed into the Papal Posse, neither Fr. Murray nor I have ever received any remuneration for the work we do there. Your support of this site helps us to do what we do over there as well. So here’s a unique two-for-one situation: support TCT and get our EWTN work as a bonus. What are you waiting for? Support TCT now! – Robert Royal
