Montreal Gets New Conservative Archbishop

I'm rather pleased with this new appointment, although I think we still have to be vigilant.

Fr. Christian Lepine attended John Pacheco's Humanae Vitae Conference against contraception.

While pastor, he invited Michel Lizotte to talk about integrated sexual identity, but he had to cancel the event.

Nevertheless, I am cautiously optimistic. His appointment is a huge improvement to the Church, especially to the Church of Montreal, led by Msgr. Turcotte, who openly opposed criminalization of abortion (although he had the decency to return his Order of Canada medal when Morgentaler was appointed.)

I hope this brings a sea change to Montreal. I know nothing happens fast in the Church, but the ship must start turning around.


Lifesite has a glowing report.
