Priests Must Exercise ‘Humility and Mercy’ to Hear Confessions, Pope Says | Daily News | NCRegister.com

  1. I agree with the Pope on this. More urgently and crucial though, I think he needs to spell out the consequences , theologically, spiritually and psychologically for the following :: Priests who have sexually assaulted another human being ( even just one) , as well as a priest or bishop who is aware of accusations against priests but do not take the care to bring the same accusations to our professional investigators. That would be a great lesson for everybody to hear. It would also be very good to hear the pope call all on priests who fall into either category to leave the priesthood. Those would be very welcomed and respected words by the world to hear from the Pope!

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
