Prime Minister (actor) of Canada Justin TrudeauNot that we need more proof, but recently there is more evidence that shows that Justin Trudeau has got to be one of the worst Canadian prime ministers. His father a close second. Trudeau’s response just days ago to a reporter questioning him about the past groping incident from 2000, reveals a man who is deceptive, hypocritical and self-righteous. The woman that Trudeau groped was a young reporter named Rose Knight.

Consecrated celibacy – an apologia

Huston Smith, the renowned commentator on world religions, submits that you should not judge a religion by its worst expressions, but by its best, its saints.

Regina deacon won’t let mountain biking accident hold him back from priesthood

“It was a sea of calm that came over me and an overwhelming feeling of God’s presence when the Archbishop laid his hands on me,” said Parker Love as he took one step closer to the priesthood.
Love is one of four men ordained to the transitional diaconate June 29 at Holy Rosary Cathedral in the Archdiocese of Regina. And although he felt a sea of calm during the ceremony, as a paraplegic who uses a wheelchair, his journey to this point was anything but.
Love came to the faith late in life, after growing up with no religious affiliation. However, as
