Five New Ideas On How To Select Bishops

Comments

  1. Quite a discussion, and , from the point of view of the Priest-_Bishop relationship. Absent is any mention of the laity- who only represent 99% of the Catholic Church !
    Then there is the case of a former Bishop of Pembroke Diocese who told the Priests of that Diocese to not be too concerned about him, since he was only passing through. And, he was right. In a very short time he was made Archbishop of Edmonton. Careerism- in the Catholic Church you say ?

      I guess I must have been absent from that meeting as I never heard anything even close to this coming from +Smith. In fact, what you proffer runs in the face of just about everything I ever heard from him during the time that he was our bishop. Are you certain of your facts or are you reporting something on the basis of hearsay? Just curious.

    2. Yes, Father- I am certain. I got that info from Priests in the Pembroke Diocese.

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
