The following statement from the Editor of The Wanderer, America’s oldest Catholic newspaper, appeared in the December 3, 2009 issue. It became available online at www.TheWandererPress.com on Friday, November 27, 2009 at 1:00PM Eastern Time:
EDITOR’S NOTE: We are somewhat heartened concerning the Newman Society’s somewhat weak “shot across the bow” of AMU, following the publicity surrounding the Golisano scandal.
Our reporter, Marielena de Stuart, continues to be banned from the AMU campus, because of her attempt to find out why she suddenly had been prevented from attending the Golisano press conference, after earlier obtaining official clearance from AMU representatives.
Yes, we have made great progress in building Ave Maria University, but we need to make more progress now. Your gift today will help in several ways– it will allow us to keep up the pace, it will show the broad base of support for Ave Maria which is so important to any national institution, and it will encourage others to support us too because they will see that they can be a part of a great awakening in our culture– the new evangelization in our country that will so dramatically shape the future of the Church.
Please, I ask you to pray, fast, and contribute today. You won’t regret it. In fact, I have great hope that you and I will have an eternity to rejoice in the action we take today.”
As the ancient warning declares: “Let the buyer beware!”
A.J. Matt Jr.
