Dutch bishop calls for sex abuse investigation | Fort Mill Times - Fort Mill, SC

Here is an excellent model for Canada to follow. Such an investigation would serve to illustrate that, while offenses were wrongly dealt with in the past, the situation is currently not as dire as what passes as 'common knowledge' today. Speaking only for myself, I would appreciate any action which would establish the fact that the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of all priests are, in fact, both holy and kind. Perhaps such an investigation would allow us to win anew the confidence of the faithful, many of whom have had their faith sorrily tested by the infidelity of a few priests and Bishops.

Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders.

Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
