We shouldn’t have to choose between which children we try to save. Why can’t we save all who are in danger of dying?
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. John's has raised more than $135,000 to help people in typhoon-ravaged Philippines.
Archbishop Martin Currie said when Typhoon Haiyan hit the pacific nation in early November, its effects rippled back to people who live in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Currie said the effort was driven by the strong ties people here have with those directly affected by the storm.
The VOCM story notes:
Currie says while a lot of the money was raised through Sunday collections, a number of special fundraisers were also held. He says in St. Mary's Bay where there is a Filipino priest, so people went door to door and raised $9,000.
Which only proves that if you have a plan followed by serious action you can achieve your goal.
So why don’t the Bishops have a plan to save 120,000+ little children being killed in Canada every year? It seems impossible to uncover the answer to that question because Bishops just won`t talk about it. We are left to guess…and protest.
Is it a question of will? or courage? or resources? or leadership? or politics? or geography?
All of these obstacles were overcome for Philippine children and their families, none of whom were threatened by violence. Why not for Canadian children who perished by violent attack?
