Confession Settlement that could halt the Sacrament of Confession in the Catholic Church: Pope Francis’ Missionary of Mercy complains | ARISE! LET US BE GOING!

This is a difficult article to read - not the content but the way that long commentary into the original text  - but it's an important issue to be addressed nonetheless. If priests can be sued for asking simple questions in the confessional, then we've really reached a point where some of us will end up going to jail or suffering other sanctions so that we can keep safe the seal of the confessional. IMHO, this case makes it all the more clear that confessions should ALWAYS be hear in a confessional or in a situation where there can be no question raised about inappropriate conduct on the part of either party to the confession. It's going to be the only type of protection priests can have in cases like this one... and even in this case where there is no allegation of inappropriate touching or contact, it was insufficient to protect the confessor from prosecution.

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
