Did Pope Paul VI Approve the Winnipeg Statement? A Search for the Truth by Monsignor Vincent Foy

Preface
Many errors circulate intimating that the Winnipeg Statement of the Canadian Bishops was approved by Pope Paul VI. In a recent work “Faith and Freedom, The Life and Times of Bill Ryan, S.J.” (Bob Chodos and Jamie Swift, Novalis, 2002) we read that the Canadian bishops at Winnipeg reaffirmed the encyclical’s teaching and that Pope Paul VI expressed his approval of the Winnipeg Statement “in communications with several Canadian bishops” (p.90). Both these statements are erroneous. The present booklet was published by the Life Ethics Information Centre in 1997. It attempted to show that Pope Paul VI did not approve the Winnipeg Statement.
