Police files, historical documents show link between Catholic hierarchy and residential schools

Proof positive that the CBC has no idea how the Catholic Church is structured as they claim that these documents 'prove' that the Vatican is indeed responsible for the abuses committed in the Residential Schools.

Yes, some of these documents were indeed sent to Rome, but to the head of the Oblate Order. Just because a church organization has its head office in Rome doesn't mean that it's not independent from the offices of the Vatican! It's like saying that the government in Toronto would be aware of what's happening in a branch of an organization just because it is headquartered in the same city. Just because something is sent to the head of the Oblate order does not mean that members of the hierarchy in the Vatican would be aware of its existence let alone its contents. These documents do not prove what the author of this article seems to think it does.

  1. But the Catholic Church has apologized in the past for the actions of its clergy whether they are diocesan or religious. Because the dioceses and religious orders are separate corporate entities this gives them legal (in civil law) and financial cover but not moral cover.

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
