Mgr Léonard Rochon a célébré son 64ième anniversaire d’ordination sacerdotal samedi passé, le 2 février, fête de la Présentation de Jésus au Temple de Jérusalem.
Mgr Daniel Berniquez et moi lui avons rendu visite à son appartement à Gatineau; il nous a servi un bon café espresso!
Aujourd’hui il fête 90 ans de vie. Félicitations, Mgr! Que Dieu vous bénisse et vous comble de ses grâces multiples : santé, joie et paix!

NCBC 24th BISHOPS SEMINAR
FEBRUARY 4-6, 2013
The Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Collinas was the venue of the National Catholic Bioethics Center's 24th Seminar for Bishops sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.
I arrived the evening before the sessions and took the opportunity the next moring to walk the nature trails of the Campion Trail not far from the hotel (the climate is a bit different from Ottawa these days!)
The mood was very positive, at times upbeat, during the seminar, which was full of well-researched, prepared and presented issues in biomedical ethics under the rubric of: BIOETHICS THROUGH THE EYES OF FAITH: SERVING CHRIST IN THE SICK AND VULNERABLE. Archbishop Gerhard Muller, new Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith gave the keynote address on Tuesday evening.
