Rosary extremists and anti-Catholic bigotry

Daniel Panneton is a Toronto writer. This Toronto blogger has never heard of him. Then again, I don't read The Atlantic, nor, do I watch TVO, funded by my taxes and therefore, part of Mr. Panneton's income. His Tweets are "protected." I am sure he is blaming nasty rad-trad Catholics. Mr. Panneton equates the pro-life movement in Canada with white supremacists. I know of none. The man calls himself a historian. Mr. Panneton's claim to fame is the article linked above at The Atlantic. It has to do with his equating the Holy Rosary with the extremest gun culture. 

I read a little of the diatribe. One minute lost forever. Seriously, the man quotes Massimo Beans Faggioli and we're to take this seriously.

How vile that this article would appear on August 14 - the Memorial of St. Maximillian Kolbe. Perhaps, if Mr. Panneton wanted to write on history, he would promote how this rosary-toting Franciscan gave his life up in a NAZI death camp to save another. How vile that it would be published on the Vigil of Our Lady's Assumption into heaven.  

Mr. Panneton is right. The Rosary is a weapon. It is a weapon against the hate and anti-Catholic bigotry that he displays. A weapon against the evil that is all around us. It is a weapon that will defeat all the paid dupes and Marxist shills who hate me, hate you and mostly, hate Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The next time rosary bearing Catholic blows himself up and takes others with him, do let me know. 

Assumpta est Maria

Here we have a concert somewhere in Korea singing joyously of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (not sure if they're actually Catholic) with a backdrop of Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal.

How utterly catholic!

A blessed Holy Day of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Assumption to all.

David Bawden, R.I.P.

David Bawden has died. 

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he Rest In Peace. Amen.

Whatever your thoughts on his state of mind and his actions, remember what the crisis over the last 60 years has done and how it has affected some people. There are those that have responded to an irrational situation in an irrational manner. David Bawden is one of them, no doubt. I will tell you this though; for what it is worth; -- there have been worse Antipopes than (Father) David Bawden. For he truly was, an Antipope in the real sense of the word, yet the truth is, there have been worse Popes, period! 

Spare a prayer for him that the Lord will show His great mercy.


In the Catholic Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Moncton, you can pray for two hours, otherwise pay up, it's a Museum!

A regular reader has provided two pictures of the beautiful sanctuary and in particular, the steps, of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption. 

You can visit the Cathedral for Mass or prayer for only 2 hours per week. That's right. Two hours. After that, it will cost you $12 for a tour of the "museum," and that he couldn't pray. The person that took the picture asked, "Is Jesus in the Tabernacle," to which the person responded, "I'm sorry, what are you talking about." So, he paid his $12 and sure enough, saw the red candle burning, knelt down and prayed.

It reminds one of the old story about a Jesuit seminarian desiring to smoke and asking his Father General at retreat, "Father General, is it permitted to smoke whilst I pray." To which he responded, "Certainly not, my son, but it is permitted to pray whilst you smoke."

On the way out, my friend stopped to catechize the poor lost museum guide. 

The plight of this Cathedral was highlighted a decade ago in a CBC news story or two.

The current Archbishop of Moncton is Valery  Vienneau. Regular readers here will remember that Vienneau banned the unjabbed from the Mass and Sacraments only a few months ago.

Is this what the faithful of Moncton settle for? At what point do we actually stop blaming the besieged bishop and call out the faithful for their own failure?

Are there any left?

Fifth Toronto area doctor dead. Move along, nothing to see here!

A fifth Toronto area doctor has died in the past week.

But these premature deaths have nothing to do with the demands of the hospitals for a fourth jab of the so-called "vaccines" which don't work, don't last, maim and kill and are not safe or effective except for increasing business for funeral directors.

“Their passings were not related to the COVID-19 vaccine.” Trillium

Is that right? Of course, they denied it.

Well-founded sources in mainstream media have confirmed with this writer that "Staff are questioning and are afraid to speak out due to bullying." That quote was written directly to this writer. Four doctors, one allegedly from lung cancer, died in a week in Toronto. What are the odds? They still deny it was the Pfizer or Moderna injections.


Trillium is reacting to this blog and the general outing elsewhere on social media and is in a reactionary mode. 

Media outlets are regurgitating the Trillium statement, over a week after the tragedies.

Sorry Trillium, we don't believe you. Trillium Health Partners

An outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 has hit the clergy and staff at Toronto's St. Michael's Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace at 200 Church Street, the residence of Thomas Cardinal Collins, the Cathedral Rector and other priests. Collins, as readers here will be well aware, declared that it was for the "common good" and "common sense" that the faithful be jabbed with the shots which are now being revealed as dangerous, deadly and ineffective. This has been confirmed by three independent sources.

Collins approved the draconian mandate and restrictions that included the testing of non-vaccinated staff at their own expense, the termination of those that would not and the harassment, which continues, of unjabbed priests.

Question: Did an infected Thomas "No Mass For You" Collins board an aeroplane with a few hundred others carrying the bug to Edmonton to meet Pope Francis?

All for the common good.

Except when it damages, maims and kills.

Calibreeze Clown of a Priest makes a mockery of the Holy Mass

Can't say much about this. No, can't say much. The pictures say it all.

But the Latin Mass according to the ancient use of the Church is the problem?

Take your Traditio Custodes and stick it where the sun doesn't shine, or a bag. Same thing.

And I'm to accept Vatican II? What about this Calabrian coprophiliac?

A mat as an altar in the middle of the sea, parish priest and faithful in the water. Thus Don Mattia Bernasconi, vicar of the pastoral care for young people of the parish of San Luigi Gonzaga in Milan, celebrated mass in Alfieri, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Crotone area. The parish priest used the mat as an altar.

Don Mattia, together with some boys from his parish, was in Crotone to participate in a field of the legality of Libera.

Being Sunday, they decided to go to the beach, but it was also necessary to celebrate mass, so the parish priest explained what happened: “We had chosen a pine forest for a campsite, but it was busy. It was very hot and so we said to ourselves: why not put in the water? A family heard us speak and made their mattress available which we transformed into an altar. It was beautiful even though we got burned ”.

The parish priest together with his boys carried out excursions and meetings with those who fight the ‘Ndrangheta on the front line. Don Mattia recounted this experience as follows: “It was the first time we did a Free camp and we came to Calabria. We had a strong experience discovering so much beauty, more than we imagined. Not only in nature but above all in people, in the courage to say no to the ‘Ndrangheta, in the desire to have a more just and free land and to stay here to improve Calabria. Our experience, through working with Libera and meeting people, has allowed us to see things more clearly. The reflection is on what we want to do now that we go home: to commit ourselves more to legality and respect or to leave things as they are “?

In December 2019, into January 2020, you may recall this writer asking for prayers due to a mysterious illness. Without going into details now, we all know what it was, the Wuhan SARS-CoV-2. I was treated at my local hospital, Trillium Health Mississauga. The care was excellent. Yet, today, something is amiss at Trillium. 

Yesterday, there were rumours online that three doctors were dead. Google searches turned up no mainstream media stories or obituaries except for the death of Dr. Paul Hannam of Toronto, an emergency room specialist who died suddenly whilst "jogging." He was at North
York General Hospital. Yet, the story about Trillium has been repeated on varied social media sites. I became suspicious not that it was true, but that it wasn't. Surely, this is news! I 
placed a call to Trillium's public affairs. I am awaiting a returned call. Clearly, the hospital administrators know that this has leaked out and are trying to develop a communication strategy. There is no comment at the time of writing. There remains nothing, at this point, on the Trillium website. Clearly, there is a tragedy here of some major proportions.

Three doctors dead; announced within four days!

Dr. Jakub Sawicki was associated with a pain management centre in Toronto's Polish village on Roncesvalles Avenue. A call there revealed that Dr. Sawicki has indeed, passed away. May he rest in peace. A call to the office of Dr. Stephen McKenzie in Mississauga has a recording stating that the "office is permanently closed" due to Dr. McKenzie having a "serious illness." The telephone at the office of Dr. Lorne Segall's office states that he has a "serious illness" and the office is closed and hoping to have a new doctor replacing him by September. Illness? Offices permanently closed?

First, may the Lord almighty grant eternal rest to the souls of Stephen McKenzie, Jakub Sawicki and Lorne Segall and may He comfort their families. May their memories be eternal and a blessing for those who knew them.

The evidence is above and below:

Three doctors at one large Toronto area hospital dead within one week. Another doctor dead whilst jogging. Look at the pictures of these three and the Dr. Hannam in the link above.

Yet, this is not news? Why is there no main-stream media reporting on this? Where is Rebel News? 

Are we all crazy conspiracy theorists for asking these questions?

Did all four doctors take their fourth injection of the Pfizer of Moderna injection? Did the hospital demand this of them? Who else is dead? Nurses? Orderlies? Other staff?

What are the scientific odds of their deaths just happening in one place in such a close proximity of time short of a war?

There needs to be an immediate cessation of all "vaccinations" and a public inquest. 

We are not conspiracy theorists when it is a conspiracy.

Archbishop Viganò on the wily and wicked actions of Blaise Cupich and the Holy Mass in Chicago

Following up on the wicked machinations of Cupich, and the Vatican's abhorrent order in Savannah, Wilton Gregory has now added to the list of those effeminate and wicked hirelings. 

Archbishop Vigano has much to say on Cupich and by extension, the rest of these episcopal scum.

Cardinal Blase Cupich, with the bureaucratic authoritarianism that distinguishes the officials of the Bergoglian church, has ordered the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest who carry out their ministry in the Archdiocese of Chicago to suspend all public functions in the ancient rite beginning at the end of the month of July, revoking the faculties granted to them in accordance with the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum.

It is obvious to anyone that this decision is intended to prevent the exercise of a right that no ecclesiastical authority can deny, a fortiori conditioning it on the acceptance of doctrinal and liturgical principles that are in blatant conflict with the immutable Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

Indeed, every baptized person has the right to attend Holy Mass and to be administered the Sacraments in the form that Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum acknowledged may never be abrogated. Depriving the faithful of Chicago of their right is a very grave abuse, and the fact that Cupich’s decision is tacitly approved by the Roman Sanhedrin adds to the embezzlements of the Ordinary the confirmation of a broader plan intended to cancel throughout the entire Catholic world the sign of contradiction that is the Apostolic Mass. A sign of contradiction because its very existence is a silent condemnation of decades of doctrinal, moral, and disciplinary deviations.

It is no secret that Bergoglio has a hatred of Tradition, and that he does not miss any occasion to deride and discredit those who want to remain Catholic and are not willing to apostatize from the Faith. Just as well known are his predilections for his collaborators and confidants: they are all united by sodomy, lust for power, and corruption in financial matters. It should therefore be no surprise that one of his pupils – an intrinsic friend of the serial molester McCarrick along with other no less controversial Prelates like Donald Wuerl and Joseph Tobin – returned the favor of his undeserved promotion to the See of Chicago by showing himself to be a loyal executor of his benefactor’s orders. A promotion that – permit me to remind you – I strenuously opposed when I was serving the Holy See as Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, and that today appears even more scandalous after the disturbing revelations made by Church Militant (here and here) regarding Cupich’s involvement in the cover up of evidence related to the sexual crimes of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin. And we have also learned that, while Cupich would like to see Bernardin the champion of progressivism canonized (here), there are actually very serious accusations hanging over Bernardin made by one of his abuse victims, accusations which the Congregation of Bishops, the Secretariat of State, and the Archdiocese of Chicago have never followed up on, despite the fact that these accusations mention the profanation of the Blessed Sacrament during a Satanic ritual with minors carried out in 1957 by the young priest Father Joseph Bernardin and his brother priest Father John J. Russell, who was later consecrated as a Bishop and is now deceased.

It is truly difficult, if not completely impossible, to find any justification for the decision of Cupich, who considers the celebration of the Mass of all time to be a sin of injuring the Council, but who strangely enough knows how to be indulgent and understanding towards sodomites, child molesters, abortionists, and profaners of the Eucharistic Species. Cupich pro domo sua. It is Cupich, of course, who, when he was instructed by Bergoglio to preside over the Commission on Sexual Crimes of the American Clergy and was asked about the Memorandum I issued in August 2018, commented with scandalous impudence:

“The Pope has a bigger agenda: he’s got to get on with other things, talking about the environment and protecting migrants, and carrying on the work of the Church. We’re not going to go down a rabbit hole on this. . . . Years ago, if a Cardinal had allowed himself to respond like this, the whole world would have come down; but today obviously times have changed. . . . Here we can also allow ourselves a bit of insolence. So much is known that the media will not tear their garments for so little.” 

You read that correctly: “For so little.” In the secular world, if a manager prevented his subordinates from doing their job and encouraged dishonest and corrupt employees by promoting them and covering up their crimes, he would be fired on the spot and asked to pay millions in compensation for the damage caused to the company’s image. Instead, on the multicolored bandwagon of the lavender mafia protected by Bergoglio, these forms of sordid complicity with evil and ferocious aversion to the Good have become the norm, confirming that moral corruption is the necessary corollary of doctrinal deviation and liturgical license. The crisis of ecclesiastical Authority – beginning from the very top – is undeniable, as confirmed by the creation of Cupich as Cardinal as well as the names of those to be given the red hat at the upcoming Consistory.

If in temporal matters civic rulers who are obedient to the deep state make use of corrupt officials to carry out the silent coup of the “Great Reset,” at the same time on the ecclesial front we see that cardinals and prelates who are no less corrupt and who are obedient to the deep church. With Bergoglio’s placet they are bringing the subversive plan of Vatican II to completion, which is destined to lead to the Religion of Humanity yearned for by Freemasonry.

But if on the one hand it is a duty to denounce and condemn the intolerable abuses of these renegades who have as their goal the destruction of the Church of Christ and the cancellation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, on the other hand it seems to me that it is necessary to reconsider how certain forms of carefree acceptance of Vatican II on the part of the Institute of Christ the King may have wrongly allowed its members to believe that Rome would have looked the other way regarding buckles and capes as long as they did not criticize the Council or the Novus Ordo.

This shows us that – beyond the impromptu ceremonial connotations that are bit too ancien régime (which however are very moderate in Chicago and in general throughout the United States) – it is the Tridentine Mass in itself that is a formidable profession of Faith and an unflinching refutation of the patched-together reformed liturgy, whether it is celebrated by an old parish pastor or a newly ordained priest, regardless of whether he wears a Roman fiddleback or a medieval chasuble. It is that Mass, and the Mass par excellence, celebrated in the one Rite that is truly extraordinary, not because it is occasional but because it is incomparably superior to the Protestantized imitation that is the Montinian rite, which a Curé of Ars would have looked upon with horror.

This Mass, the Mass of the Holy Church, the Mass of the Apostles and Martyrs of all times, our Mass – this is the Mass that truly causes them scandal. It is not Roman birettas and bows that scandalize them; it is not the mozzettas and rochets that scandalize them. The real thing that scandalizes them is the Catholic Mass, and this is what they rail against, with the rage of heretics – the same people who preach “welcoming” and “inclusivity,” which applies to everyone without condition except for good priests and faithful laity. In reality, this ought to be enough to convince us to totally ignore the last dying wheezes of a Hierarchy that is blinded in both intellect and will because it is alien to Grace.

This umpteenth show of strength by Cupich, who is cynical and ruthless towards the faithful even before the Canons of the Institute of Christ the King, can constitute a healthy moment of reflection on the many omissions and equivocations that need to be clarified, especially in the matter of acceptance of the Conciliar mens and the Bergoglian “magisterium.” I trust that the Canons of Christ the King and all of the Ecclesia Dei institutes will be able to see in these days of trial a precious opportunity for purification, courageously witnessing to the necessary coherence between the profession of Faith and its cultic expression in the Mass, and the consequent irreconcilability between these and the doctrinal and liturgical deviations of Vatican II. Because it is not possible to celebrate the Mass of Saint Pius V and at the same time to accept the errors of its enemies.

Cupich knows this very well, and this is why he wants to prevent the celebration of that Mass. He knows how much that Mass is a very powerful exorcism against the servants of the devil, both those who wear miters and those who do not. He knows how immediately that Mass is understandable to anyone for its supernatural sense of the sacred and divine – the mysterium tremendum of Moses before the burning bush – and how that Mass opens the eyes of the faithful, warms their hearts, and enlightens their minds. After decades of unspeakable torments, the faithful are finally able to approach the Majesty of God, to be converted, to change their lives, to educate their children in holiness, and to spread the Faith by their example. What could be more desirable for a Bishop who is truly a Shepherd of the Sheep entrusted to him by the Lord? And what could be more detestable for those who want to see the Sheep be torn to pieces by wolves or fall into the abyss?

The lay faithful, priests, and Bishops have the sacred and urgent duty to rise up against the decisions of these completely discredited characters and to demand, without yielding an inch, that the venerable Tridentine Liturgy remain an inviolable bulwark of doctrine, morality, and spirituality. We must obey God rather than men (Acts 5:29), especially when these men have demonstrated by their reprehensible conduct, that they do not love either God or their brothers in the Faith.

Gaudium Vitae - the Reversal of Humanae Vitae

That's right.

Remember where you read it first.

And, here it is, oh yes, if it is in this pathetic rag, you know its coming.

Too long to post here, you will need to use a translating app.

Assistant to the Editor of Toronto's Catholic Register, Michael Swan; "The failure of Catholics" to willingly be raped and pillaged

A so-called journalist with Toronto's Cardinal "No Mass for You" Collins owned The Catholic Register has blamed Catholics for the failure of Canadian bishops to live up to "their" commitment to providing financial resources for programs to somehow make up for the matter of Residential Schools.

Reconciliation fund approves first project (

Writing in the July 20 edition, Swan states, "Given the failure of Catholics to raise $25 million in a “best efforts” campaign that ran between 2008 and 2013 — that campaign fell $21 million short of its goal — the Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre is watching closely this time around."

There is an old saying about a fool and his money soon being parted. Any Catholic that gives one penny to these spineless episcopal campaigns has fulfilled that saying. 

Classic gaslighting. Blam the victim. Blame the long-suffering Catholics in the pew for their own "failure."

Not one penny!

Is Francis really coming to Canada?

Is Francis really coming to Canada? He is scheduled to arrive next week to engage in a farce of apology to the native people of Canada. He has recently cancelled a trip to Africa and that was not the first. The Canadian bishops and Vatican clowns have pagan imagery in the logo and a phrase just reeking of ableism, "walking together" as the theme, clearly excluding those in wheelchairs. That, no doubt, will be the next apology.

Briefly, graves were discovered on the grounds of some residential schools. Graves, in what were cemeteries. Not "mass graves" as in one open pit NAZI or Pol Pot or Stalin style. The children died of many things, influenza, Diphtheria, pneumonia and many other diseases. There is not one piece of evidence that any of these poor children were murdered. It is all a lie. Were some physically or sexually abused? No doubt, some. This happened in all boarding schools. None of it should ever have happened in Catholic schools. One was too many. The residential schools were official Canadian government policy. They wanted the natives off their lands for resources, railroads and farmers from Ukraine. The "Crown," the Government of Canada, broke every Treaty it ever signed. All Christian religious denominations in Canada, along with the Catholic Church, took government money -- all of them took children from their homes, families, and communities and took them at the government's orders to their boarding schools. That, particularly for the Catholic Church in Canada, was a crime against them and the Faith. There can be no debate about this. It was wrong, the Bishops should never have done it. Children always have a right to be at home with their parents, the Church and State never have a right to remove them unless they are in obvious physical or emotional harm and culture and language and history do not equate. But, it was done by all at the coercive hand of the Crown.

The Church in Canada had every obligation in the name of Christ to convert the natives and bring them to Christ. This should have been done by living amongst them as did St. Jean de Brebeuf and his companions, not removing them from their homes.  

As for an apology, the Canadian government already did it as did Pope Benedict XVI and the Canadian bishops. This new action is a political show to force an official apology directly from the Pope in order to set up each diocese in Canada for a massive lawsuit due to the collective guilt they have accepted and the apology they will give. That is what this is about. The Canadian bishops are fools for inviting Bergoglio. Any Catholic who gives one penny for this visit or reparations is an equal fool. Justin Trudeau has already granted $30,000,000.00 for the visit of our tax money. 

The texts of the Masses and Vespers have been seen by this writer. They are the basic Novus Ordo Mass texts for the day. Nothing odd. However, as expected, a smudging ceremony will be undertaken in Edmonton. A pagan ceremony will be used to "purify" a Catholic Church and Bergoglio.

As with his worship of Pachamama which unleashed a horror on the world, do not expect anything good to come from the worship of false idols and false religion by the one who walks in the "Shoes of the Fisherman," or goes along with a ceremony of Smudging to purify a the Temple of God. What utter blasphemy from a blasphemous nation and Pope.

But I return to my original question. Will Papa Hagan Lio actually make the trip or will he cancel at the last minute leaving Canada's Catholic bishops holding the bag? And speaking of a bag, just what kind of bag is it? Is it a Prada? A Ferragamo? A Louis Vuitton?

Day of Spite and Petty Malice - a contemporary take on the Dies Irae

With credit to:

Day of spite and petty malice!
When a document most callous
Came forth from the papal palace.

Oh, what nuisance it inventeth,
And what rancor it fermenteth,
As the faithful it tormenteth.

Loud complaints will be resounding
Every chancery surrounding
Bishops with a headache pounding.

To what end this persecution?
Whom enriched by diminution?
For what is this the solution?

See, the faithful are divided
By the place where they resided
Some shepherds took, while some provided.

Lo, the ones whose loss is graver
Traded for a tyrant’s favour
May God send them leaders braver!

When the figures are recorded
They will tell a tale most sordid
Enemies of faith rewarded.

Those with modern ways complying
Parishes once vibrant, dying
Gone, the sound of babies crying.

Long neglected, yet deep-rooted
Ancient vineyard richly fruited
Might for envy be uprooted.

Prayers that pestilence averted
Rites that continents converted
Shall such treasures be subverted?

May we never take for granted
Beauty sculpted, written, chanted
Save, O Lord, what Thou hast planted!

See, the sacred incense rising
Michael’s sword the foe surprising
Smoke of Satan exorcising.

Those with rigor still sustaining
And the older fasts maintaining
Will stand firm, their strength not waning.

Those the narrow way pursuing
Those to purity yet hewing
Will not here find their undoing.

Though it may not soon get better
With each poison papal letter
May God yet His Mass unfetter.

Like the Church of old, forbidden
Underground, in places hidden
Spreading though with troubles ridden

Spiteful day, of harvest rotten
Better to be soon forgotten
For this purge, O Lord, prepare us
(Though we’d rather You would spare us!)

Lord, we ask on this dark day
Make this nuisance go away


A heartless thing our shepherd did - wait for it!

Dom Alcuin Reid and the situation in Fréjus-Toulon

For those readers here who have not seen this article regarding Monastère Saint-Benoît - Home ( on Rorate Caeli, you may wish to read it. It lays out the current situation there quite clearly. The Monks are now effectively in the same position as the Society of St. Pius X. Fortunately, they own their property and cannot be evicted by corrupt Vatican apparatchiks. 

There are unsubstantiated reports that will surely be clarified by tomorrow that Blaise Cupich is about to banish the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest from Chicago. I seem to recall that they also own their building having purchased it from the Archdiocese of Chicago. Maybe not so "unsubstantiated." ACTION ITEM: Prayer to avert a serious act of persecution – UPDATED | Fr. Z's Blog (

Delirious Dichotomy - the profound liturgical wisdom of Francis

 An Apostolic Letter was issued in Rome today by Pope Francis. A Jesuit has commented formally on the liturgy. The last time I was at Mass celebrated by a Jesuit, everything had changed but the bread and wine. In Toronto, we are blest to have a Jesuit pastored parish, Our Lady of Lourdes.

The document urges proper liturgical formation. I can agree with that.


Let's see. Pope Francis would like proper liturgical formation.

Can we begin with Sacrosanctam Concilium?

Chirograph on Sacred Music?

Redemptionis Sacramentum?

How about the General Instruction on the Roman Missal?

Please, spare me, Jorge.

As for this, your "intention" will mean nothing. Nor, will you live long enough. Your attempt to tear the Church apart over this will fail. You will not stop It. Who thought at Easter or a year ago or a decade ago that we would see Roe vs. Wade collapse so quickly? The same will happen to the false church dwelling within the Bride of Christ. 

For more information, Father Zuhlsdorf has explored the shallow depths of the mind of Francis and his ghostwriters.

In your charity - consideration of the support of a family

Dear Friends,

This is not the first time that I've written about a situation with a family. It is amazing how powerful a blog post can be to assist in times of need. A few months ago, I wrote about a family friend who passed on to the Lord and you came through in a marvellous way.

Yesterday, my wife attended the funeral for the husband of a childhood friend. It was very sad. The financial situation is desperate. 

For those who may wish to donate and not use GoFundMe, you may write me directly at and we will ensure that any transferred funds are sent directly and without delay to the family.

I leave this for your discernment

Thank you for whatever you can do to help the family of the late Jesse Rousseau of Keswick, Ontario.

On this Feast of St. John the Baptist who was called by name from and leapt within his mother's womb, Roe vs. Wade is struck down!

There are no coincidences. 
Praise God and give thanks for his Messenger and Donald JOHN Trump on this day is the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and His forerunner.

INTROIT Isa. 49:1, 2 
The Lord has called me by name from my mother's womb, and He has made my mouth as a sharp sword. Under the shadow of His hand He has protected me, and has made me a chosen arrow.
Ps. 91:2. It is good to praise the Lord, and sing to Your name, O Most High!
V. Glory be . . .

O God, the birth of blessed John made this day one of honour to us. Grant the grace of spiritual happiness to Your people everywhere, and lead Your people in the path of eternal salvation. Through our Lord . . .

LESSON Isa. 49:1-3, 5, 6, 7
Give ear, ye islands, and hearken, ye people from afar. The Lord hath called me from the womb, from the bowels of my mother he hath been mindful of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword: in the shadow of his hand he hath protected me, and hath made me as a chosen arrow: in his quiver he hath hidden me. And he said to me: Thou art my servant Israel, for in thee will I glory. And now the Lord, who formed me from the womb to be his servant, says, "Behold, I have given thee to be the light of the Gentiles, that thou mayst be my salvation even to the farthest part of the earth. Kings shall see, and princes shall rise up, and adore for the Lord's sake, because he is faithful, and for the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee."

GRADUAL Jer. 1:5, 9
Before I formed you in the body of your mother, I knew you; and before you came forth from the womb, I sanctified you.
V. The Lord stretched forth His hand and touched my mouth, and said to me:

Alleluia, alleluia! V. Luke 1:76
"Thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Most High, for thou shall go before the Lord to prepare His ways." Alleluia!

Ut Queant Laxis



Our Lord said of His Precursor that among those born of women there had not risen a greater than John the Baptist. John was more than a prophet because it was his office to point out to mankind the Saviour whom the ancient prophets had foretold obscurely and from afar. The Baptist practiced in a heroic degree the virtues of purity, penance, and incessant prayer; but the crown of his great holiness was his selfless humility. "He must increase, but I must decrease," John said of Christ. These words are the inspiration of foreign missioners striving to train native priests, in order to yield their places to them. They also mark the goal of all sincere Catholics, in whom self must die before they can attain "to the mature measure of the fullness of Christ" (Eph. 4:13).

INTROIT Isa. 49:1, 2 
The Lord has called me by name from my mother's womb, and He has made my mouth as a sharp sword. Under the shadow of His hand He has protected me, and has made me a chosen arrow.
Ps. 91:2. It is good to praise the Lord, and sing to Your name, O Most High!
V. Glory be . . .

O God, the birth of blessed John made this day one of honour to us. Grant the grace of spiritual happiness to Your people everywhere, and lead Your people in the path of eternal salvation. Through our Lord . . .

LESSON Isa. 49:1-3, 5, 6, 7
Give ear, ye islands, and hearken, ye people from afar. The Lord hath called me from the womb, from the bowels of my mother he hath been mindful of my name. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword: in the shadow of his hand he hath protected me, and hath made me as a chosen arrow: in his quiver he hath hidden me. And he said to me: Thou art my servant Israel, for in thee will I glory. And now the Lord, who formed me from the womb to be his servant, says, "Behold, I have given thee to be the light of the Gentiles, that thou mayst be my salvation even to the farthest part of the earth. Kings shall see, and princes shall rise up, and adore for the Lord's sake, because he is faithful, and for the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee."

GRADUAL Jer. 1:5, 9
Before I formed you in the body of your mother, I knew you; and before you came forth from the womb, I sanctified you.
V. The Lord stretched forth His hand and touched my mouth, and said to me:

Alleluia, alleluia! V. Luke 1:76
"Thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Most High, for thou shall go before the Lord to prepare His ways." Alleluia!

GOSPEL Luke 1:57-68
At that time, Elizabeth's full time of being delivered was come: and she brought forth a son. And her neighbors and kinsfolks heard that the Lord had shewed his great mercy towards her: and they congratulated with her. And it came to pass that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child: and they called him by his father's name Zachary. And his mother answering, said: "Not so. But he shall be called John." And they said to her: "There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name." And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. And demanding a writing table, he wrote, saying: "John is his name." And they all wondered. And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed: and he spoke, blessing God. And fear came upon all their neighbours: and all these things were noised abroad over all the hill country of Judea. And all they that had heard them laid them up in their heart, saying: "What an one, think ye, shall this child be?" For the hand of the Lord was with him. And Zachary his father was filled with the Holy Ghost. And he prophesied, saying: "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel: because he hath visited and wrought the redemption of his people."

The just man shall flourish like the palm tree; he shall grow like a cedar of Lebanon.

We place our gifts upon Your altar, O Lord, in solemn celebration of the birthday of John. John was the herald of the coming of the Saviour of the world, and pointed Him out when He arrived as Jesus Christ, Your Son our Lord; who lives and rules with You.

The Preface for Weekdays is said.

Thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Most High, for thou shalt go before the Lord to prepare His ways.

O God, let Your Church rejoice over the birth of blessed John the Baptist, for through him she came to know the author of her own birth, Jesus Christ, Your Son our Lord; who lives and rules with You ..


This Is the Record of John


This Is the Record of John

"This is the record of John. When the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed and denied not, and said plainly, 'I am not the Christ.' And they asked him, What art thou then? Art thou Elias?  And he said, 'I am not.'  Art thou the prophet?  And he answered, 'No.' Then said they unto him, What art thou? that we may give an answer unto them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? And he said, "I am the voice of him that crieth in the wilderness: make straight the way of the Lord."

Item Number: C5.7110

The original verse anthem, telling the story of Saint John the Baptist, was written by Orlando Gibbons in (1583-1625) for countertenor alternating with full SAATB chorus. David Domet has arranged this for 2-part mixed choir (occasionally 3-pt), bass soloist, violin and organ, making it much more practical for the church choir. The arrangement is faithful to the music of the original, and retains the distinctive alternation between soloist and chorus that defines a verse anthem. The text dialogue comes from the Gospel of John [Jn 1:19-23]. The story is told by the soloist, with the chorus echoing some of the dialogue for emphasis. Ideal for the second or third Sunday of Advent, the anthem is also useful for the Solemnity of the Nativity
