The recent and ongoing revelations of clerical abuse in the Catholic Church can leave us angry, shocked and discouraged.
“The Companions of the Cross (and the members of our spiritual family) want to stand in union with those who have suffered and seek justice and accountability.”
We are witnessing God’s sovereign work of revealing how evil is undermining the Gospel of Life, the dignity of the human person and the work of evangelization in the Church.
Jesus has conquered sin and death and he wants to purify his Church.
“A personal spiritual response to this evil is holiness. Let us to take to heart the words of our Founder, Fr. Bob Bedard, CC and “Give God permission” to make us the saints of this new millennium.”
To this end we, the Companions of the Cross spiritual family, invite you to join with us in a 9-day Novena of Prayer and Fasting, culminating in a Mass of Reparation & Healing in each of our Foundations (Ottawa, Halifax, Toronto, Detroit and Houston).
The Novena will run from Thursday, September 27th – Friday, October 5th with the Masses of Reparation and Healing celebrated on Saturday, October 6th.
