The Pope drops Catholic ban on condoms in historic shift - Telegraph


  1. I hope you realize that this link is over two years old and has been debunked.

    I think given the headline and your position, father, it deserves an explanation...

    1. Suzanne: I didn't notice that it was an old story! It was included on my RRS feed yesterday as a new one. Given the headline and topic, it seemed an important story since it was announcing a 'major change' in Church policy.

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