U.S.: Conservative Catholics not convinced by Bergoglio's approach - Vatican Insider

This is a strange story. The source article speaks about 'traditionalist' and 'conservative' Catholics being upset with Pope Francis but fails to provide any evidence to support the claim. The only named reference is a Robert Royal from a conservative Washington think-tank. One person being annoyed hardly qualifies as being representative of an entire wing of the Church!

Yet, that original article from the Washington Post is popping up all over the internet as 'evidence' of a 'split' caused by the Pope's style of address despite failing to offer anything beyond the opinion of its authors to justify its conclusions. (sigh) Such is life in this internet age... and proof positive that it is important for Church members to speak truth in the face of such nonsense.

  1. It's more than just one article. And I suspect there will be more if this Pope continues his current approach.

    On the other hand I had a friend, a Protestant, the other day say "I like this pope". I debated whether or not telling her he's still against women's ordination and recently excommunicated a priest in part because he advocated that.

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
