  2. Mary: The same valid argument has been offered every time humanity reached beyond its limits, but it has never stopped us yet. "Why spend all that money to sail ships across the ocean when we don't even know if there's anything there?" We sailed anyway. "Why spend all that money on (insert big expensive scientific project here) when there's better ways to spend it here" We built them anyway. It's part of our nature to be curious. It won't be stopped anytime soon so long as there are new places to explore or new means of studying them no matter the cost. I'm not arguing in favor of spending our money this way. But I know that it's going to happen eventually because someone will always find a good reason to spend the money accomplishing it.

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
