Courageous letter from priest to his order: end abortion

The Canadian Jesuit priest, Fr. Tony Van Hee, has been a strong witness to life on Parliament Him, the seat of Canada’s government for 30 years. He has prayed and fasted in an effort to bring an end to abortion. Just recently he issued a challenge and a reminder to his Jesuit order that they have been silent about “the worldwide genocide of the preborn.”Last February, the 83 year old priest wrote a letter to his superior general Fr.

Commentary: Catholic media, and the truth that sets us free

Denver, Colo., Jul 13, 2018 / 05:18 pm (CNA).- This week at CNA, we published an article about a bishop under investigation in India after a religious sister accused him of rape.
