The Catholic Civil Rights League (CCRL) has focused on attacks against churches and the threat of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia expansion in our media work to start 2024.
May we continue to find hope and peace, as we accept the coming of Christ. May He find a place in our hearts, and may we reflect that joy to others.
The Catholic Civil Rights League (CCRL) is pleased to announce that it has chosen journalist Charles Lewis as the winner of the League’s annual Archbishop Adam Exner Award for Catholic Excellence in Public Life.
That physician assisted death may be administered to patients where mental disorder is the sole underlying medical condition, is something with which most Canadians do not agree.
The League urges Canadians to continue to assert their opposition to the proposed expansion of euthanasia to allow for mental health as a basis for one’s death.
The CCRL joins the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate in mourning the loss of Most Reverend Adam Exner
Archbishop Exner died in his native Saskatchewan on September 5th. He was 94 years old.
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!
