A dread article which portends to war that echoes of recent conflicts in the past.

Here is a worrisome article from Time Magazine in which the author lays out 'the path to war' with Iran. I say worrisome because it was articles such as this one that marked the beginnings of the drumbeat to war with Iraq for similar reasons: to halt an Arab nation from possessing nuclear weapons.

Irrespective of one's convictions as to whether such an aim constitutes a sufficient casus belli for war, I trust that all people of good heart, mind, and soul would accept that a peaceful resolution to such conflicts between nations is preferable to an armed conflict. Let those of us who believe in prayer renew our commitment to dedicate ourselves to praying for peace and love to triumph over war and hatred in this world. Together with all people who yearn for peace to prevail here and now, let us commit to work to attain that cherished goal by whatever means we can legitimately use to that end.,9171,2137429,00.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+timeblogs%2Fswampland+%28TIME%3A+Swampland%29&utm_content=Google+Reader,9171,2137429,00.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+timeblogs%2Fswampland+%28TIME%3A+Swampland%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

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
