A priest with the name Maxi can become the first Shinto in Canada to be honoured for his work in caring for children.articleThe Rev. Maxi L. Jones, the grand priest of the Chaldean Church of the Resurrection in Montreal, was born in 1947.
He has been a priest in Montreal since 1987.
Jones, who has been in his role since 1985, has been recognized for his “exemplary service to the communities in which he has worked.”
The Chaldeans are a minority religion in Canada.
They practise a worship of a powerful deity known as the Chaldeans.
The Chaldean faith is the second-largest in North America and is the most widely practiced in North Africa and the Middle East.
Jones said he was born with “very strong” roots in Montreal.
He came from a family of Christians, and he was taught the tenets of the faith by his grandmother.
“I was very involved in the Catholic Church, and I was a devout Catholic myself,” Jones said.
Jones has been the grand rabbi of the Montreal Synagogue of the Americas since 1995, and is considered to be the first Catholic to hold the position.
He is also a member of the National Shrine of Quebec, and the first Chaldéan to receive the Order of Canada.
“It’s a privilege to have been recognized by the people of Quebec and the Canadian government, and it’s a great honor for me to have that recognition, because I’ve been a strong advocate for this religion for decades,” Jones told the Montreal Gazette.
Jones was also a professor at Concordia University before retiring from his position as a priest.
Jones told the Gazette he was inspired to seek the Shinto priesthood after learning about the importance of the religion in Quebec.
“The Chaldeas have been the only people in North and South America who have been persecuted by the French,” he said.
“They have been systematically driven out of their lands, and now they are going to the next phase of their history in this world, to the other side of the world, where they will have to defend themselves.”
This is the time for us to be very active, and we are going in the right direction, I think, to be part of that process, and to help the Chadalones, to make sure that they are the dominant religion in this country.
“In addition to serving as a Shinka priest, Jones was the first Canadian to receive a shinto kimono, a traditional priestly vestment, in 2003.
He said the kimonos are a sign of respect to the deity of the Shinkans.”
Jones said his Shinto faith is a “religion of peace.” “
It is very symbolic.”
Jones said his Shinto faith is a “religion of peace.”
He said it is not a religion of war.
“If you can believe in the spirit of peace, in the light of the sun, and that is something that is really important, it will bring you happiness, it’s going to bring you peace, and if you can understand that, then you will be happy,” he added.
“We need to have a more enlightened society, so we need to be more aware of our own situation, but I think the most important thing is to be aware of the situation of the people, and then be there for them.
