Cardinal Ouellet-- and Blogging Hiatus

Hi all

I'm sorry for my relatively prolonged absence. I'm very tired and have a lot going on in the background.

I also wish to concentrate on my French blogging.

I need everyone to pray for Cardinal Ouellet. He is getting eaten alive for his defense of fetal rights this weekend. The hatred is visceral.

One columnist wished him a slow painful death.

One tweeter said his mother should have aborted him.

A popular talk show host is spreading the meme that he's reactionary, stupid and disconnected from reality.

And of course you get the typical illogical comments: he's a man, he's celibate, he's a priest, he runs a pedophile church.

If you can think it, they said it about him.

He is getting absolutely NO SUPPORT. Even the support from his fellow clergy is milquetoast. Some clergy, like Fr. Gravel, the Archbishop of Rouyn-Noranda and at least one other priest said that abortion in the case of rape is okay.

Quebec is the Achilles' heel of the pro-life movement. We must concentrate on penetrating the hate, getting out the facts and touching people's hearts. Please pray.

I'm going to take time off. So much going on in my life. I need the Holy Spirit to lift me up.
