Ottawa Archbishop Terrance Prendergast has been in the news this week and he’s been turning quite a few heads. More background can be found in my previous posting. He subsequently did a radio interview yesterday on CFRA. You can listen to the interview here. There’s quite a bit of chatter about the whole affair.
I think it’s a great time for all concerned Catholics to contact the Archbishop [write a letter] and ask him for clarification on his remarks. We should try to get assurance from him that he will tackle the problem of pro-abortion “Catholic” politicians in accordance with Church teaching, i.e. following the example of Archbishop Raymond Burke, as I touched upon a few days ago. Anything less simply won’t be effective.
If the Archbishop won’t agree to stand in full accord with the instruction of the Magisterium on this matter, you can expect this whole incident to blow over in a week or two and not a thing will change.
