Fr. Robert Altier's New Assignment

According to Spirit Daily, Fr. Robert Altier has been assigned to the Regina Medical Center. It is well known that when a priest has lost favor with the bishop he is relegated to the nursing home, hospital chaplaincy or prison ministry. Fr. Altier's crime was opposing the diocesan sex education program called Virtus. The program is supposed to be to protect children from sexual abuse. Seems these days you can get silenced and suspended for opposing the sex abuse of children (via sex ed) faster than you can get silenced and suspended for actually abusing children. Disturbing.

Now that Fr. Altier's radio ministry has been shut down and he will no longer be giving sermons in public, someone very helpful has been posting links to his homilies here in the comments section. It appears that the homilies of Fr. Altier are available from 2001 to 2005.

Thanks so much for the links to the sermons of Fr. Altier. It will keep my printer busy for a long time.
The way Christ has saved the Faithful is the way the Faithful will be saved - by prayer, by much sacrifice, by suffering, by standing up for Truth when all others mock and stone us, by being consistent and joyful in our practice of the Faith, and by continuing on the mission He gave us to 'go teach all nations' even if those 'nations' happen to include the exclusive 'nation' of bishops and priests. The TRUTH will set us free.
Isn't this commission we have great fun???
