I have been told but have not yet confirmed that Father Rene Labelle was found dead in his apartment yesterday. Does anyone have any further information?
Father Bernard Buckle had a courtdate in Stephenville, Newfoundland yesterday *Monday, 25 August 2014. I will follow up on that today. Please keep the complainant in your prayers.
Enough for now,
Yes, Father Labelle is dead. I know no more than that.
My heart and prayers go out to his victim and the victim’s family. This will be a terribly difficult time for all.
He had hung himself
Another pervert collar burning in hell…good riddance.
Shame on you…
Why? You don’t know me or my past. Am I sorry this pervert is gone? NO…he can’t harm anyone else now.
How would you know this information?
You make me laugh…thanks, I needed this.
For Father Labelle’s family also……….
God judges, not you…and if the people who reply to this site are true Christians…they will remember the four Gospels of Jesus. ….if you don’t remember,. Shame on you….
I say prayers for the alleged victim and his family ( I say alleged, because only God and the alleged victim know the truth. Father Labelle …REST IN PEACE. God loves you….and the alleged victim and his family.
This site is a witch hunt…. it’s quite obvious something must have happened a long time ago to the witch or her family member or a friend that keeps this bitterness against the Catholic Church going on and on. I would hate to think she receives the Body and Blood of Christ every weekend (or weekday ). What a hypocrite if she does receive.
Time the WITCH gave up the hunt and instead of obsessing about her next news scoop on her site ..she might consider prayer and meditation. Remember Sylvia, Karma has a habit of coming around and biting one right on the ass!
This has to be one of the most hate filled post/sermon I read in some time.
The subjection and degradation of Sylvia and those who support clergy abuse victims will not stop the on going progress to seek justice for victims.
Angie…you’re such an asshole! Speaking of a witch hunt, you are doing the exact thing you accuse this site of doing!! Talk about vindictive, that’s you.
Unbelievable, never wish it on anyone, but if you were to ever see the anguish and long term devastation sexual abuse has on an individual, your statement would turn on a dime…..to call Sylvia a witch is quite laughable, very easy to make such comments and hide behind a first name handle….
Get your head out of the sand!!!!
Is this summary of your post accurate?
1. “Be quiet; God judges; not you; Shame on you” — which, BTW, is a judgemental last statement.
2. “Sylvia is acting on past trauma” Well, that is armchair psychobabble regarding someone you clearly do not know.
3. “Remember, Sylvia, Karma is around the corner.” Which form of Karma will that be, Angie? Hindu style, Buddhist style? Strange statement from a fervent Christian.
You probably are not interested in my suggestion but I will provide none the less. If Labelle was a friend/colleague/mentor/teacher/priest/relative, remember the good and acknowledge the failures. And work on prevention — prevention of sexual abuse; prevention of corporate denial; prevention of suicide. In doing so, you will be helping others and maybe there will be a personal benefit/relief. And, even though it seems unlikely today, you may develop the realization that this site is not the enemy. I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
On December 10th 1984, one of my best friends committed suicide. Richard Cournyea – he was 14 years old. No one knew what had happened to make him feel like he had to kill himself. I was with him the night before. No clue that he was feeling this way. 30 years later in, it comes to my attention that Father Labelled had committed suicide himself. Back in 1984, my friend Richard had been an altar boy. Guess who the Priest was? You guessed it. Everything fell into place now. It took 30 years to find out why my friend took his own life. I don’t mourn the loss of this paedophile, Labelle, I just wonder how many other boys he molested over the years, and no one knew?

Jeff – was Richard at Nicholson? Who was the Principal at Richard’s school? Mike.
