St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated March 17, the day he died in 461.  In honour of one of the more celebrated saints, here are a few items that form part of the fact and legend of the patron saint of Ireland.

Among 18 Canadians who died in a March 10 plane crash in Ethiopia was a graduate of Toronto’s Catholic school system who had just been accepted into teachers’ college.

Fr. Thomas Rosica has maintained the support of the board of directors of Salt and Light Media Foundation despite admitting to widespread plagiarism.

Cardinal Thomas Collins is calling on Catholics to remember the importance of almsgiving this Lenten season.

If it was up to Dr. Barrie deVeber, his name would not be on the institution dedicated to researching all aspects of human life.

The abuse summit began with the voices of the abused … five testimonies gathered from around the world.

As the Catholic Church comes to grips with an appalling past that saw thousands of children and vulnerable people exposed to abuse at the hands of clergy around the world, Canadians can only turn back the clock to remember when the scourge dominated the headlines at home.

Trump bashers

What is happening to The Catholic Register? It used to report about Catholic Canadian values. Now it consistently bashes Donald Trump. Trump is not perfect, but which politician is? However, he is pro-life. Because of his pro-life belief, the tide may be turning in the United States. Millions of children can be saved.

Ban the nukes

Re: Churches want action on nuclear treaty (Jan. 27):

It’s safe to say that nuclear weapons now pose the greatest threat to humanity. Rising tensions between major powers have increased the danger of a nuclear war that could end human civilization. The United States and Russia alone possess 90 per cent of the world’s nuclear arms. 

End all persecution

Re: Persecution hits close to home (Jan. 13):

Bob Brehl states “we can go on and on about the persecutions of Christians around the world,” then abruptly switches to a story from The New York Times which discusses the homosexual individual from a Catholic San Diego parish who was harassed. Am I the only one who sees a disconnect?
