Sick of hearing about scandals in the Church? You should be. (Part I)

I have called people like Mr. Lawler modern-day Catherine of Siennas. In Canada, we have Sylvia MacEachern (http://www.theinquiry.ca/wordpress/) who has done the same for many years. The only true disinfectant for these sordid scandals is the light of day and they bring it... big time! They literally put their own souls in danger by dealing in the squalor of these affairs, not for glory or praise, but because they truly, deeply, and authentically love their Church. All Catholics of good faith and heart owe them a great debt of gratitude. I know that there are times in which they might be wrong in presuming that this priest or that bishop is guilty. But their batting average is in the stratosphere and can be forgiven the occasional mistake. Please pray for these good souls. We would still be knee-deep and blind to the predations of criminal clerics and feckless bishops were it not for their hard work and dedication.

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

The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
