While I cannot understand why it took so long, I am delighted to see that Dr. Frank Craparo's name is FINALLY missing from the web site of Mercy Health System. While I applaud this change, it is but a small first step toward recapturing an authentic Catholic identity for hospitals in the archdiocese. There is a long road ahead. For example, of specialists in obstetrics and/or gynecology who practice in six hospitals in the Archdiocese, I can find only one who is also on a list of NFP-only practitioners in Pennsylvania. That situation is scandalous (See Ethical & Religious Directives, # 71.).

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
