Would you take a 'one way' trip to Mars?

Kind of looks like Sudbury in the 1960's!
Here's an interesting piece about the feasibility of a 'one way' trip to Mars as the vanguard of a colonization effort. Among the comments that accompany the article was the following:

"Home Sweet Home?"
"I think my ex-wife would be a great candidate for this venture. She's already in the telecommunications industry, and despite the great view likes to sleep on long trips, doesn't eat much, has a take charge attitude, and since only the good die young, even in the harsh martian lanscape. SHE'D BE GREAT!!!"

It put a smile on my face! Hope it does the same for you!


  1. i would not care to go myself, however, should i win the lottery, there are several for whom i would gladly pay their way:))

  2. Whether they want to go or not, eh, Mary? LOL! I, too, have a little list... ;D

  3. Hey Father, I grew up in Sudbury in the 60's and it was never as bad as that!

  4. Julie: I grew up in Lively during the 60's too! The Mars picture was pretty much how I remembered Coniston (before the reforestation project).

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

Canadian Euthanasia Information

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59.
