Some long division for our Archdiocese

Cardinal Mahony has arranged $773 million in settlements.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has 290 parishes.

290 into $773 million = $2,665,517.24.

$2.665 million per parish could have funded a pro-life pregnancy counseling center or home for unwed moms in every parish.

That tens of thousands of preborn babies are aborted in our Archdiocese every year PROVES that we do need, and desperately, a pro-life center or maternity home in EVERY parish.

Just thinking out loud.

There's quite a bit we could have done with that money, had Mahoney chosen to avoid scandal by addressing the problem instead of trying to hide it. At this point, I don't think the diocese will see solvency again under Mahoney's leadership, nor should it - For example, your plan shows how money could be spent well. If the Cardinal were to enact this plan on his terms, we'd end up with high-tech futuristic marble "Official Life Center"s that pretty much just pass out pamphlets. If these kinds of things are to be done right, and right now, it would have to be at the parish level.
