OTTAWA – Though mortality was a "key aspect of family life" in the last century, today's wounds are deeper and the need for healing even greater, Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast said Oct. 26.
"There have always been loss and mourning in family life, which used to lead to a form of stoicism," Prendergast told the Archbishop's Benefit Dinner. "However, today's experiences of loss and abandonment, through abortion, separation, and absent parents, are mostly willful."
