By Vatican News In a Message released on 14 July the Canadian Bishops give voice to the most vulnerable of our society, who have suffered most throughout the coronavirus pandemic. While the pandemic has been experienced in different ways according to individual circumstances, the bishops note that “it has also brought a new awareness of the limitations we face as a society and the challenges of the conditions of those who are vulnerable”.

Pray AND Take a Stand for Our Country

Join the Conversation with Cardinal Raymond Burke! Dear Friend, ~ Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. This month’s edition of Conversations with Cardinal Burke comes during dynamic, intense and trying times effecting every one of us. I imagine you are as bewildered as I am seeing the confluence of crises and overlapping emergencies erupting in 2020. And could you imagine even ten or fifteen years ago that we would see an anti-American movement where people carry a disdain for standing for the National Anthem or having schoolchildren recite in class the Pledge of Allegiance?  Much less, a shocking degree of disregard for law and order in society. It is becoming more apparent the world has enjoyed unprecedented economic development and relative peace and stability as a result of having international order. The current order was born from the ashes of the second world war. This order was born from the ashes of the first world war and was hard earned costing the world one hundred and fifty million lives who were lost over the course of the 31-year period of what was a great power war from 1914-1945.

What Is the Holy Spirit Asking You to Bring to the World?

“Bring to the world what you have received from God,” Father Mark gently encouraged those of us congregated for Pentecost Mass. The church was sparsely peppered with parishioners who braved facing the coronavirus stipulations for resuming attendance for celebrating the weekly liturgy. Through the strange sensation of breathing into a face mask, I nodded.
