  1. When i read this i am reminded that men who spent 3 years WITH Jesus did not always do the right thing...Judas betrayed Him, Peter denied Him, Thomas doubted...why are we surprised at human failing? Is there anyone of us that would want our inmost secrets as breaking news on CNN? The most wonderful part of this story is the untold part...Jesus loves him and will forgive him...we have a God of mercy.Having said that he should pay any civil penalty that his actions require.

  2. Mary: It absolutely blows my mind! I doubt that in all of the years that I have been a parish priest that the total of all collections would not amount to half as much as he stole! When I have to look at staff lay-offs and reduction in office hours, and am taking personal responsibility for some of the monthly expenses just to make ends meet, it is inconceivable that a priest could have access to sufficient funds as to be able to steal a MILLION dollars!

    American's obviously give A LOT more in support of their churches than do Canadians! I'd be happy with just enough to pay the parish bills each month!

  3. Maybe there's a lot more guilt in Connecticut...?

    Many (not all) Canadian Catholics are notoriously cheap. I've taken up the collection a few times and many parishioners are just scrambling for leftover change from the coffee they bought at Tim Hortons on the way to mass. Thanks for your toonie! That should feed the furnace for weeks. Many Protestants I've met are far more generous in supporting their churches. No bake sales, bingos, lotteries or chicken dinners required.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. 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

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: http://www.euthanasiaprevention.on.ca/Newsletters/Newsletter108(May2010)(RGB).pdf Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: http://www.euthanasiaprevention.on.ca/HowTheyVoted.pdf On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
