“I’m So Busy, I Met Myself Coming Back!” A Quick Reflection on the Week of A Priest | Archdiocese of Washington

Looks like a busy classmate from my diocese
This most recent column by Msgr. Charles Pope explains perfectly why I enjoy my cottage so much... especially during this summer season. Even though this was to be a week off for me during which I was to entertain a dear friend and classmate, Fr. Paul Conway (Sault Ste. Marie Diocese), I was detained in Mattawa for the start of the week to celebrate three funerals. Still I have been able to enjoy his company for the past two days (once I finally arrived) and I know he enjoyed the tranquil peace and quiet that the cottage offers when he was here alone.


Today we each depart. He begins his return to his parish in Elliot Lake, Ontario (where he's expected back for work on Monday). I'm heading straight back to Mattawa to take care of a wedding rehearsal tonight as well as the weekend celebrations. As we say amongst ourselves, "No use complaining. That's why we get paid the big bucks!" (grin)

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 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.
