The Power of a Story

By Taylor Hyatt Last October 15th, Canada’s Supreme Court heard arguments for the Carter v. Canada assisted suicide case. The judges recommended that any adult with a “grievous and irremediable” health condition causing “enduring and intolerable suffering” should be able to end their life with the help

Who Will Deliver Your Call?

My call to being a missionary runs parallel with my conversion. The final wall that I had constructed between myself and Christ was committing myself to evangelization. We live in a culture that says religion is fine so long as you keep it within the confines of

Healing People With His Love

Christ has always been a part of my life, but He hasn’t always been the centre of it.  As I was growing up, faith was an important aspect of my family’s life.  We attended Church and I was involved in a Catholic girls’ club, but I still

Power to Overcome Barriers

What is the point of being Catholic? What’s the point of going to mass, of going to the sacraments? What’s the point of being a good person? We’re all going to die anyways. Do we just cease to exist? And all the time and effort we spent
