CCCB Invites Muslim Representative For The First Time to Address Plenary Assembly

I’m sure there are good reasons to invite a Muslim representative for the first time to address Canada’s 80 or more Catholic Bishops.
A group of invited observers, including priests, members from Catholic organizations and other Christian churches, also participates in the meeting. Each year, one religious representative is invited to address the Bishops, and for the first time in its history, the 2007 Plenary Assembly will welcome a representative from the Muslim community, Imam Dr. Zijad Delic, Executive Director of the Canadian Islamic Congress.

There must be quite a varied agenda of items that need addressing by the Bishops of Canada. I’m sure that if they consider it to be important to hear from a Muslim they must also be anxious to discuss this outrage.

After all, the CCCB press release clearly states that the Bishops meet to address “major issues that confront Canadians and the Church at large.”

Celebrating its 65th year of existence in 2008, the CCCB is an organization created by the Bishops to allow them to collaborate on various pastoral responsibilities and to work together in addressing major issues that confront Canadians and the Church at large.

Perhaps they might even address the greatest sacrilege occurring in Canada under their watch and the solution for it.

God help the Bishops. Please pray for them continually.
