Folks, check out this site which another Catholic blogger has started. (These damn trouble-making Catholic bloggers are revolutionizing the Church!)
The time is right now to ask your bishop to join the list of bishops restricting the enabling of abortion advocacy in the Global South. We need to pick up on the recent momentum and finish the job.
March 21 is the Lenten Collection here in Ottawa. For Ottawa residents, I ask you to write to Archbishop Prendergast and respectfully ask him to follow the lead of Toronto and Pembroke. Ask for a public statement also. Catholics have a right to know where their money is going. So far, the bishops have not been forthcoming with this information despite the overwhelming evidence against Development & Peace. Frankly, I’m not sure which is a greater scandal: the fact that Canadian Catholic money is going to pro-abort groups or the fact that the bishops continue to keep Canadian Catholics in the dark about it!
It’s matter of trust. Stress that fact in your letter to them. Once you break trust in a relationship, it spells a lot of pain and suffering in the future. If we can’t trust them with something so basic as this issue, what right have we got to trust them on anything at all?
Write the letter. Do it today.
