Military’s Biggest Medical Center Restricts Catholic Services During Holy Week
Walter Reed National Military Medical Center reportedly ordered Catholic priests to stop religious services—just before Holy Week. The U.S. government has become outright demonic.
Not only are religious services helpful psychologically to those who are sick or dying, but they are vitally important spiritually to endure suffering or prepare for possible or imminent death. Providing Easter Mass at the Center does not make up for restricting religious services just before and during Holy Week.
“[Military archdiocese] The Franciscan [priests’] contract for Catholic Pastoral Care was terminated on March 31, 2023, and awarded to a secular defense contracting firm that cannot fulfill the statement of work in the contract. As a result, adequate pastoral care is not available for service members and veterans in the United States’ largest Defense Health Agency medical center either during Holy Week or beyond. There is one Catholic Army chaplain assigned to Walter Reed Medical Center, but he is in the process of separating from the Army.”
The U.S. military, under supposed “Catholic” commander-in-chief Joe Biden, is deliberately and scandalously attacking Catholic Christianity during the most sacred week of the year.
