The following comes from an August 8 Maryknoll Lay Missioners press release:
Maryknoll, New York (August 8, 2016) – Maryknoll Lay Missioners is excited to announce our Student Loan Repayment Program. This innovative program, launched in 2016, was made possible by the generosity of an MKLM supporter.
The Student Loan Repayment Program is available to all active Maryknoll Lay Missioners during the time they are under contract with MKLM. During their time in service, MKLM will pay the Missioner’s monthly student loan payment, freeing individuals of this financial burden as they minister to the poor and marginalized in Asia, Africa and the Americas.
“The number of students borrowing for their education is increasing, as is the amount an average student owes,” said Joanne Blaney, MKLM Mission Services Director. “We are delighted to offer the Student Loan Repayment Program so that our Lay Missioners can focus on the most important thing, sharing Christ’s compassion and love with those in need and working to change unjust structures around the world.”
MKLM invites Catholics who are 21 years or older to join for an initial three-and-a-half year commitment, and welcomes single people, married couples or families to apply. The orientation program offered to new Lay Missioner candidates is rich in authenticity, designed to address both practical and spiritual preparation for overseas mission work. Lay Missioners who join the program are not only eligible for the new Student Loan Repayment Program, but also receive a number of other benefits, such as:
-Health insurance coverage while overseas for individuals and families
-In-country, full-time language training
-10-week onsite orientation training in New York, with childcare financed and provided for families
-529 College Savings Program for children of missioner families
Maryknoll before Marx: The Saintly Father Thomas Fredrick Price
How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
Why do you always slander good people, people who are trying to make a difference for good in this world? People who work tirelessly being the hands of Christ in this world?
YFC– The Maryknoll Fathers, Sisters, and lay missioners, are really political liberal-leftists, and support Evil, to include Liberation Theology and Marxism– just like many of the Jesuits! They are hardly recognizable, as “Catholic,” seeking true Catholic conversions, leading souls to Christ’s Salvation, for the Kingdom of Heaven! No– like many of the Vatican II Church– they seek an “EARTHLY SALVATION” of EARTHLY, POLITICAL SOCIAL JUSTICE—- NOT GOD’S KINGDOM!!!
YFC, lots of well-meaning young people who want to help Christ do good in the world, may not realize the Evil present in today’s Church— and may be tempted to join the Maryknolls, not realizing their liberal leftist “hippie” moral degradation, and misplaced political liberal leftist ideals!! Having expensive Student Loan debts paid for, while in missionary service for the Maryknolls– may be particularly appealing, and may attract many young people!!
Do you always work so hard to slander the truth?
Communists work tirelessly for their causes, too. They feed their children and have a steady work ethic. You certainly seem to work tirelessly for the sake of undermining, driven as you seem to be.
That said, YFC, only God is good. Even Jesus said so. But that’s a reality often overlooked.
YFG, what do you know personally from your own experience about the Maryknoll Lay Missioners?
Maryknolls can go help build Marxism in Nicaragua together with the Jesuits. Liberation Theology and Federal Student loans for all, yeah that’s the solution.
Catherine, your posts are terrific! It is such a shame that the Maryknoll Fathers, Sisters, and lay missioners– have all degenerated into liberal-leftists, hardly recognizable as “Catholics!!”
The article on Fr. Price was excellent, Catherine! LOVE the quote from Ronald Reagan!
Thank you, Linda Maria! God bless you!
So, here is an order that is trying to help those who want to serve the missions. Surely, we must all jump on them and tear them apart for their innovative and Christian way of helping their missionaries. Come on, let’s trash them until they are no longer willing to do God’s work. The response to this very positive article is to degrade a whole order of Priests because of the actions of a few. What about those Maryknolls who are in Africa helping to bring fresh water to small villages, or building and operating birthing centers in the middle of Nairobi slums, or, or, or? Someone here could use some compassion.
Anonymous, the Maryknolls used to do good missionary work, in the name of Christ! But they have sadly changed, since Vatican I!! It is very shocking– but so many religious orders of our Church, violate Christ’s teachings, in today’s immoral world! And the CRS— it is UNBELIEVABLE what they now do! I the Name of Christ, and our Church— a great deal of our donations to the Catholic Relief Services today, goes to support birth control, sex-ed, feminism, and abortion, in developing nations! SHOCKING!!
Marxism does NOT help people. Jesus, did not say, My people perish for lack of “innovations” or lack of fresh water in the village, or lack of wealth, or global warming. Jesus said, My people perish, for lack of knowledge.
The TRUTH is like a LION! Let it loose and it will defend itself! – St.. Augustine
