The League Asks Supporters and Friends to Contact their MPs in Opposition to Bill C-7 and the Expansion of Euthanasia

The current bill moves us from what the CCRL deemed to be a national climate of “suicide relativism”, which is a half-hearted opposition to suicide in general, but sanctioned allowance when requested through the medical system.  Canada has now moved to a regime of full “suicide facilitation”, with further expansion expected.

The League Mourns the Death of Co-founder and Former Exner Award Recipient Fr. Alphonse de Valk

Fr. de Valk was a passionate defender of life, and of free speech, and stood for a robust understanding of freedom of conscience and religion. Fr. de Valk was born on Easter Sunday, 1932.  He died during the Easter Octave, and just prior to Divine Mercy Sunday.  His witness to the Gospel of Life was always centred on his relationship with Jesus Christ, in his case, through the priesthood.  May he be richly rewarded with the promises of the same Christ, our Lord.

Perhaps for this year’s Easter Triduum, let’s take a moment to place crucifixes in the front windows of our homes, or on our front porches, if possible.  It would be an outward sign of our veneration of the cross, through which we come to the glory of the resurrection.  Placing a candle in those places on Easter would be a further sign of the light of Christ.
