  1. Is it all catch and release? or do you keep some fish to eat?

  2. Julie: You're entitled to eat all you want and take out a limit of fish. I tend to keep the ones that were about 1.5 - 2.0 lbs and release those smaller or larger. This past week, my fishing companions caught a number of walleye that topped 5 lbs.

    The fishing is so good because of the fact that the lake is part of an exclusive fishing/hunting zone. This means that the lake has had almost no fishing pressure. There are only 7 cabins on the lake... and if you're not in one of them... you cannot fish the lake. On top of this, the owner 20 years ago built up spawning beds as part of a restocking program... a really, really successful program.

    Hey Fr. Tim: By "my fishing companions" do you mean God?

  4. Hi Larry: Well God was most certainly there, but I was referring to my nephew, and a friend from Lapasse and his son. Two old guys and two young 21 yr olds. We kicked ass in cards. They cleaned up at Risk. We all had a great time.

    My best to Arden. Hopefully you've both enjoyed this beautiful summer. It reminded me of the summers when I was a kid.

    It has been a beautiful summer for sure and we have enjoyed it spending a good amount of time at a farm we bought last year in Quebec near Waltham. I am renovating the inside and we have done a lot of work to the property. We have 2 horses and Melissa has been doing a quite a lot of riding.She took riding lessons for a number of years so she has enough freinds who like to ride with her as well.

  7. Larry: I understand your confusion. I had access to a second cabin where I spent my days in silent prayer and reading. I returned to the main cabin to cook for the gang I brought in and for some evening entertainment.

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
