CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Thomas Prendergast of Ottawa has praised young Canadians who are ineligible for summer work grants from the government because they refuse to sign a pro-abortion statement. The archbishop—who has described the government’s stance as “bullying,” said that teens who lose summer jobs are showing their Christian commitment, “and if it means losing money, if it means losing status, so be it.”

    It is wonderful to see a Shepherd who is not sheepish about praising those who publicly confess their Catholic faith, and suffer material and personal loss because of their stance. We've seen such matters before, but the era of Cyprian and Cornelius is ancient church history. These youth and their archbishop, and their families I am sure, have stepped into Church and Canadian History. Here rises the new evangelization evident in their faith. It's going to be a wild ride for a few decades.
