The double exile for Canada’s Christians
Canada: no longer a Christian homeThe Hymn to the Virgin Mary in the morning prayer this past Saturday, February 10, includes these truthful lines: “Exemplar of the virgin way/ Unto your Son, O Mary, pray/ To help us in these exile days/ And strengthen us in all ways.”We know that as Christians we’re in exile. We’re a fallen people because of sin. But we have been redeemed by Christ love and sacrifice on the cross. With the Garden of Eden, every generation, each human life is a pilgrimage home to the Creator. Sadly, Canadian Christians find themselves twice in exile.
