Fr. Scott Daniels, O.P., journeyed to the Great Northwest October 16th for the Cause for Life Conference in Vancouver, Washington. At a dinner that Friday night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sipula, Fr. Daniels met with Clark County Cause for Life Coordinator Edward Rush, Development Director for Options 360 Pregnancy Clinic Mrs. Deleana Dey, Cause for Life committee member Mrs. Carla Wehrmann, the Life Guardian Foundation’s Mrs. Bernice Jones, noted anti-euthanasia expert Dr. Paul Byrne, and attorney Jeff Lindberg, who was the conference’s master of ceremonies.
Fr. Daniels’ homilies for the weekend focused on the nature of sacrifice and its true meaning – self giving. He also explained the false sense in which we use the word, noting that 50 million unborn babies have been sacrificed to the god of convenience, Moloch’s new name.
On Sunday evening, Fr. Daniels had the great blessing of visiting with his Dominican Brothers at Holy Rosary Parish in Portland, Oregon. Impressed with the loving hearts of the parishioners and the breathtaking beauty of the area, Fr. Daniels is already working to return to the greater Portland area.
