The CCRL is devoted to combating anti-Catholic defamation and to bringing Church teaching to bear on issues of public debate
The CCRL has submitted in the past that “the continuance of historically recognized allowances, or work arounds that facilitate religious objection, should be maintained as part of our social fabric, and in recognition of the authentic pluralism of a free and democratic society. A forced compulsion over such rights is the negation of a truly authentic pluralist society.”
Sadly, our research indicates that incidents of church attacks increase at Easter. As so, we are bracing ourselves and keeping watch as we prepare to celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord.If you are in a position to increase your almsgiving this Lenten period as we approach the Holy Triduum, we ask that you remember the CCRL.
We have been blessed and are incredibly grateful to have had the guidance from Pope Benedict XVI to assist and sustain us with the fullness of Catholic teachings in matters of public importance in Canada and the world. We can find numerous references in his words where he brought Christ and the theology of the Church to the public square, against the onslaught of efforts to remove positions of faith from public engagement. May our former Supreme Pontiff find peace and rest in the comfort of the promises of Christ. May we be inspired to find our own friendship with Christ, as Pope Emeritus Benedict encouraged.
We find a Light in the Darkness!
