Fellow pro-life blogger and friend, Suzanne, is taking note of an on-line petition to get the Pope to come to Quebec in June, 2008 for the Eucharistic congress. The petition is being spearheaded by a former Quebec cabinet minister who is concerned about Quebec’s autodemolition. (NB: Where were you when you were in power, bub!? Better late than never, I suppose). Here is Suzanne’s post on it:
A very serious effort to bring the pope to Quebec City has been launched by former Quebec cabinet minister Marc Bellemare (now leader of a municipal party, Vision Quebec). The pope’s presence in Canada would obviously be an opportunity for him to speak out for the culture of life and the rights of unborn children. Most of North America is enmeshed in the culture of death, but in Quebec it’s especially bad. We need a strong voice to defend the unborn. So please, sign the petition, and all of you: blog this! It’s absolutely important. I want the Vatican to be bowled over by the number of signatures this petition receives, so it’s important to make a mass effort. And this includes Americans! Naturally, you would want the pope to come to your neighbouring country: it’s all good. Please blog this as well. One small hitch: the petition I have is in French, but no big deal.

Note, no address is needed, as this is not a political petition.The pope will be making his decision at the end of November, so please help now!
For some time now, I have been saying that the revival of Canada begins in Quebec. It sounds crazy and unlikely, but God confounds human reason and does not work according to our plans. Our downfall started in Quebec and our resurrection will emanate from there as well.
If the Pope shows, the Holy Spirit is coming too in an extraordinary way.
Perhaps the wind the Holy Spirit brings will sweep out the liberal corruption with it.
I have my own special reason for the Pope to come. 2008 is a very important year in the history of Canada. It marks the 40th anniversary of the capitulation of the Bishops of Canada to the contraceptive leviathan which is currently decimating our culture.
After you sign the petition to bring the Pope to Canada, please sign The Rosarium’s petition to restore full, authentic unity between Canada and Rome on the question of human life. We have about 1000 signatures to date.
