Avenging Altar Boy - NYTimes.com

This is an article about R. Seth Williams, the District Attorney in Philadelphia who has laid charges not only against some predator priests, but also against the diocesan official who did not remove them from ministry but simply moved them to other parishes (where they sadly found more victims to abuse). I note that he is a practicing Catholic and sees his actions as aiding the Church in ridding itself of these abusers and their enablers.

  1. I think I like this guy. But just wait -- someone, somewhere, is gonna claim that he's being "anti-Catholic." Wait for it...

    Lady Janus:
    Where will we go to find such a claim and by whom ? Do you mean the Taliban?

  3. He's doing his job. Nothing spectacular about that. I don't think any Catholic should overlook an abusive cleric and they should be charged like any other sexual predator taking advantage of a position of authority, be they priest, doctor, teacher or scout leader. That said, I'll reserve my judgement on the guilt of the accused until judgement is passed.

    Cheers

  5. How long do you two figure we'll be waiting for someone to come along and tar this lawyer as being anti-catholic?

  7. So hasn`t this guy been thrown in prison for various crimes and corruption since the posting of this article? Didn`t it turned out the prosecution had hidden evidence showing the accusations were false? Maybe he was just being anti-Catholic. Maria Sorensen, a friend of SNAP said that the investigator who pointed out the holes in the accusations was killing her case didn`t she?

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
