CCCB removes offensive ex-Bishop Lahey material from Website

I am pleased to inform our readers that the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has taken action to defend the Church with regards to the Lahey case and his writings on the CCCB website.

It is perhaps a sign of the times that, as with large bureaucracies, authority and decision making gets bounced around... nonetheless, the undertaking of respectful letters to bishops and the Nuncio has paid off. One lesson from this is that when writing to bishops, don't give up.

As such, I have decided to remove all posts pertaining to the issue of Lahey and the CCCB. The mission is accomplished, we move on. We do not wish to be part of the vicious scandal-bearing "industry" of  the so-called "internet trolls".

To conclude: please, please do not finish reading this post without a prayer for the former bishop. He too needs saving... Jesus died for him - as he did for you and for me. So, in your charity as a Christian, pray that this man repent and be saved.

Pray for our bishops and pastors as well. The sad, tragic actions of one man has degraded their sacred role as successors of the Apostles in the Church in Canada. Pray for our Holy Father.
