David and Absalon

October 04, 2019
While imprisoned in Rome, and shortly before his martyrdom, St. Paul wrote a letter to Timothy, to exhort the young disciple to apply to his duties in the apostolate, making good use of the Holy Scripture, the Word of God: “All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice,”[1]

Some Anniversaries

August 28, 2019
Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre was ordained priest in 1929, upon completing his clerical studies at the French seminary in Rome, under the direction of Fr. Le Floch, a priest from the Holy Ghost Fathers.  Fr. Le Floch, who was a true man of the Church, taught the young seminarians how to get a clear thinking through the trouble times of the 20th century.  Fr. Le Floch did so by means of teaching the encyclical letters of the popes of the 19th and 20th century, who condemned the modern errors.

The case of Vincent Lambert

July 26, 2019
According to an article posted recently on LifeSiteNews, there were 774 reported assisted deaths in Ontario for the first six months of 2019, 1499 reported assisted deaths in 2018, 841 reported assisted deaths in 2017 and 189 reported assisted deaths in 2016, since its legalization. In other words, every day, in our province, over 4 persons are silently put to death by means of euthanasia and medically assisted suicide!

Sex Education

June 28, 2019
In the seventh chapter of Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis wonders if “our educational institutions have taken up the challenge of sex education” and hopes that we will realise that “a new and more appropriate language is needed in introducing children and adolescents to the topic of sexuality”.

Peter, thou lovest Me?

May 28, 2019
At the end of June, we will celebrate the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul.  This feast gives us a good opportunity to meditate on the appointment of St. Peter by Our Lord as the first pope, and, more precisely, his reinstatement as head of the apostles after the Resurrection.

Music does things to us!

April 30, 2019
A few weeks ago, Mr. Mike Austen, a former rock band involved in the "music Industry" for quite a few years, came to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy to give a lecture to our High school students. Mr. Austen now runs "Magnificat Media,” an Internet radio station.

I believe in the Catholic Church!

April 04, 2019
Within a few days, we will contemplate the Passion of Our Lord, which is at the heart of our religion.  On this occasion, let me focus on the Mystery of the Agony of Our Lord in the Garden of Gethsemane.  In that lone hour, Jesus felt that he was completely abandoned by men - the few apostles that came with him had fallen asleep.  There was only an angel that came to give Him some consolation.

Lent – a good time to go to Confession!

Evangelization for the 21st century?

February 01, 2019
We are familiar with the story of St. Paul.  On the way to Damascus, Saul was struck by a lightening, and fell from his horse. There he heard a voice saying to him: “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”  To whom he answered “Lord, who are you?”  “I am Jesus whom you persecute.”
