    Charles Colson was a religious bully who styled himself a minister of the Gospel, a thug in the Marine Corps, pretending to false patriotism and one of the worst criminals in the Nixon White house of the Watergate era. He is notorious and reviled by all but the most reactionary and repressive elements of society.

    Tim Moyle and George Weigel think he was a grand fellow. Now there's a surprise!

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
