Catholic schools are closing allover the place. They say it is declining enrollment but we all know the bottom line is money.
I visited the Vatican several years ago. The money being spent there to keep the floors clean would be more than enough to send every Roman Catholic child to a Catholic school if it was desired.
(The opulence I saw there sickened me when I thought of all the children here being denied the education they and their parents wanted. My husband was not happy about my giving voice to this topic.)
