Earthquake rattles residents in Ontario, Quebec | CTV News

A Quiet Place
YIKES! That's right down river from Mattawa. The place here certainly rattled and rolled for a few moments this morning. It must have been a lot stronger down in the Pontiac where my cottage is located near where the earthquake was centered! Happily I can report that according to my neighbors down there that there's no evident damage done to any of the properties in the area.


It's been quite the year for we folks who live along the Ottawa River. Historic high water has flooded most of we cottagers - I still have 3-4 inches of water in mine, down from 2-3 feet that flooded it for the past - and then today's shaker. It's enough to make one wonder what's coming next? A plague of locusts and the four horsemen of the Apocalypse? Good thing I believe in Christ's admonition not to be concerned if we hear of earthquakes and other disasters. If I didn't I'd be spending all my time with an eye cocked to east to see of the parousia was at hand given the run of bad luck that the folks here in the Upper Ottawa Valley have suffered through this year.
GO SENS GO!!

Still, come flood or wind, earthquakes or alike, it's still the best place to live in Canada! After all, our beloved Ottawa Senators are the only Canadian team left standing in this year's NHL playoffs. That's gotta count for something when it comes to determining just how blessed we Valley folk really are, eh!!

    You just can not leave it alone, can you Father? Now you talk about *LUCK*. Where did you find that in the Bible, or the Catechism of the Catholic Church- or was it just something you picked up in the Seminary?
    You are a strange one !

    1. Rationalist 1. Until you have something to contribute to the spread of Christianity, why don't you take a hike. No matter your long-standing relationship with Fr. Moyle, you really are just an interloper!

  3. Harris: You are a terrible example of a Christian: intolerant and disrespectful. The comment above is the last one fromn you that I will permit to be posted. Any subsequent comments will be directed into the spam folder from today onward.

    2. Mike: ??? Is that a prediction, (not much of a risk considering we'll all die) a wish you hold, or a threat?

      Just curious.

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
