Doug Ford and the Ontario medical community are lying to you. A crime against humanity?

This is the data from the webpage COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Ontario as of 10:30 A.M. on Sunday, January 24, 2021. This is not my data. There were 1,436 persons hospitalized in Ontario. This is down from 1,501 the previous day. Those 65 people either got better and were discharged or died or a combination of both. 

UPDATE: DOWN AGAIN AS OF SUNDAY. 


There are approximately 464 hospitals in Ontario. The data can be found at the link below.

General Hospital Locations - General Hospitals - Health Services in Your Community - MOHLTC (gov.on.ca)

On average, there are just over 3 people with the China Virus in Ontario's hospitals.

Where is the crisis?

For this, for three people per hospital, we are killing our economy, isolating people, distressing people causing a great rise in suicides, abuse and substance abuse and bankruptcies which repeat the cycle. 

The numbers above prove the comments from people whom I know in health care. There is no overcrowding crisis. There is nobody going without an ICU bed who needs one. 

I have no doubt that people are ill and dying. I have a friend, a doctor with it and he is in the last few days of quarantine and is recovering at home without treatment. A friend's father, noted below, has passed. He was an octogenarian who went into a Toronto hospital for a stroke and caught China Virus there, and died from it. The dead in long-term care are not being transported to hospitals. They are not in those numbers. They are being left to die in the nursing home.

Douglas Ford, an alleged "Conservative" Ontario Premier, is an abject failure. He has lied to the people of Ontario. He has engaged in a cover-up with a corrupt medical community.

Cardinal Collins and the bishops of Ontario have been duped into closing our churches.

The time has come to end this fraud.

On this third Sunday After Epiphany or in "Ordered" Time there is still


However, it could be worse. At least here in Toronto, if your priest cares to follow the suggestion of Cardinal Collins, your parish can offer a Holy Communion service for up to ten; in Hamilton and other places, bishops such as Douglas Crosby has completely shuttered the churches.


We must remember the psalmist, "Put not your trust in princes." Therefore, what can one say other than this?

Spem in alium nunquam habui
Praeter in te, Deus Israel,
Qui irasceris, et propitius eris,
Et omnia peccata hominum
In tribulatione dimittis.
Domine Deus, creator caeli et terrae,
Respice humilitatem nostram.

I have never placed my hope
In any other than you, God of Israel,
Who can show both anger and graciousness
And absolve all the sins
of suffering man.
Lord God, creator of Heaven and Earth
Be mindful of our humiliation.

“What do you mean you don’t see a problem? We both are minors right now and were minors at the time these videos were taken. We both were 13 years of age. We were baited, harassed, and threatened to take these videos that are now being posted without our permission.

Cardinal Collins, Bishop Crosby and the rest - This, is on your soul!

A few days ago a friend wrote me that his octogenarian father was admitted to a Toronto hospital after suffering a stroke. Whilst in hospital, they gave him the China Virus. He is on life-support and the treatments for China Virus have now ceased. I heard last evening that the hospital has denied the son's request for a priest to administer Extreme Unction. They will not send a chaplain on staff nor can he bring in a priest from outside. 

God will take care of this poor soul. God will not deny him His mercy through no fault of his own. I have written to some of my priest friends to remember this suffering man at Mass this morning. If you are a priest or know one who would do the same, it would be a great act of charity to this man and his son. The man's first name is Stephen, that is all that is necessary, God will know who it is.


The denial of the sacraments to this man will be on the souls of those responsible. It is a crime on the hospital officials.

However, the greater crime is the utter silence of our bishops, particularly Toronto's Cardinal Thomas "Collateral-damage" Collins and Douglas Crosby - who has blocked all sacraments and declares Catholics who disagree as "uncharitable," makes them complicit in this crime against the God-given rights of the faithful. They need to think on this - at the general judgement, they will stand accused for all to see. They will stand accused by Stephen and they will stand accused by the little girl who was murdered for the vaccine that they are recommending to even the offering of our churches as vaccination centres. Open the churches for the vaccine they will, but not for Mass. 

No Mass for you.

No Sacraments for you.

You selfish, uncharitable, ignorant simpleton.

Douglas Crosby, OMI of Hamilton says you lack "charity" for petitioning for Holy Mass

In a stunning criticism of the lay Catholic faithful, the Bishop of Hamilton in Ontario, Douglas Crosby has accused faithful Catholics of a lack of "charity" and a "fundamental lack of understanding" as to why the laity have been banned from the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Unlike Toronto's Cardinal Collins who has relented to allow Mass for weddings and funerals and Holy Communion on Sundays, Crosby has shut down the sacraments for the faithful. Perhaps the good bishop, who wants to guilt the people of Hamilton by comparing the situation to the people of Labrador, might give some examples of the lack of charity. 

"The decision to close our churches and suspend public celebrations of the Mass has been a painful one for our clergy, religious, and all the lay faithful in the Diocese. While the sadness of our inability to gather to celebrate the Eucharist is profound, some of the responses to this closure - in addition to falling short of the demands of charity - betray a fundamental lack of understanding not only of why this great sacrifice is being made, but also whose example we follow in so doing."              

You can read the rest of the Bishop's letter at this link.

Crosby has locked tight the faithful's churches in the Diocese for even private prayer to a maximum of the provincial regulation of ten persons. Perhaps we Catholics in Toronto should develop a greater appreciate for the magnanimity of Cardinal Collins compared to the niggardly Crosby.

He dares to write that we lack charity. No church for prayer, no sacraments. 

What do the faithful of Hamilton think of this?

You can email the bishop in a charitable manner here.

Never give up!

Selfish baby-boomers cower in fear. What a life without Christ leads to!



This selfish generation of which I, at 64, am at the tale-end of is stealing the future from the current one. They have been a narcissistic, greedy and selfish generation all their lives. The children of the greatest generation are a bunch of cowardly, godless pagans. It almost makes one wonder if this is not just punishment.

This is what a life without Christ is like. 

This is what you must remember.

Psalm 90/91
Assurance of God’s Protection

You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, 
will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress;
my God, in whom I trust.’

For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence;

he will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

You will not fear the terror of the night,
or the arrow that flies by day,
or the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
or the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

You will only look with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord your refuge.
the Most High your dwelling-place,
no evil shall befall you,
no scourge come near your tent.

For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.

On their hands they will bear you up,
so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.

You will tread on the lion and the adder,
the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

Those who love me, I will deliver;
I will protect those who know my name.

When they call to me, I will answer them;
I will be with them in trouble,
I will rescue them and honour them.

With long life I will satisfy them,
and show them my salvation.

On this Second Sunday after the Epiphany and in the time of the Gospels of manifestations of Our Lord, there is still

I sang a Requiem yesterday. It was very sad as the deceased was known to me. Cardinal Collins partly relented in his inane decision, allowing the Mass for weddings and funerals. The Mass was held within the provincial restrictions proving that it can be done. Cardinal Collins is in grievous error as the Metropolitan Archbishop for his lack of leadership and the shuttering of churches and elimination of daily and Sunday public Mass. 
Your Eminence, I know that you are reading this. Restore the Mass now. Order the priests to comply or face suspension. Each priest is to say three Masses per day. if not a First Class Feast or Solemnity, then  convert the weekday Masses to Sunday. If a parish has two priests, that is six Masses. All can work out a system to stay within the provincial guidelines. Suspend Holy Communion at Mass except by appointment for individual or family and provide on tongue as it is private and the priest and people can properly wash. Respect those of us who will not receive by the hand. Host too small? Use larger hosts or rectangular shaped. There are lots of options. Late or not, partner with our Evangelical Christian brothers who are going to court. Advise the Premier he can arrest all priests and bishops, our churches are opening. Your actions have caused much of what you called in the leaked webinar, "collateral damage." You know well what that collateral damage is. Depression, suicide, increase in drug use and alcoholism, abuse, financial disaster for individual and small business. You closed the churches. You have contributed to this "collateral damage." The toll which the closed churches have taken on the faithful is known to God and will be revealed to all of us at the end of time. 

Are you prepared to answer for that? 

Charity compels me to call you out and correct you in your error!

There is an antiphon set to polyphony by Palestrina called Tribus Miraculis. It is an Epiphanytide text that recalls the ancient traditional belief that the Epiphany, the Baptism of the Lord and the Wedding Feast at Cana all happened in their specific years on the same date. Epiphany once had an Octave, done away with by an ill-advised Piux XII as recommended by Annibale Bugnini. The liturgical rot began that long ago. The Octave Day was the Baptism of the Lord, January 13 with the Gospel being the Lord's Baptism at the Jordan by John the Baptist and the next Sunday, today, followed with the Gospel of the Wedding Feast at Cana. As for the calendar in the modernist rite, the moving of Epiphany to Sunday along with Baptism the next Sunday acknowledges this "octave" at least nominally and without calling it such. On one Sunday in the three year cycle, the Gospel of the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time has the Marriage Feast of Cana gospel. As someone who never attends it, I have no idea what year this is. The Sundays between now and the Gesimas all are oriented towards similar manifestations of Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah. One other matter about today, the actual Collect is the same in both, the only Sunday of the year that this occurs as Father Zuhlsdorf explains.

If we were at Mass today in either the traditional or modernist, assuming the modernists would use the actual offertory chant proper to the day, you would hear what is arguably the most wonderful Offertory antiphon of the church year, it is certainly my favourite. It appears again in Eastertide, though on different Sundays.

Since you cannot attend Mass today, may I suggest Matins and Lauds from the Divine Office, specifically the Divino Afflatu that has none of the tainting of Bugnini or Pius XII or John XXIII. It will take about 45 minutes, but what else are you doing today? I will guarantee you that it will be a greater offering to God and more efficacious than watching a Mass on your computer screen. You are, after all, not at Mass. 


Not the familiar Salzburg but at least I won't disgrace this post with Subdeaconess carrying the cross. Pure and beautiful voices, real faith.

Ratzinger and Bergoglio receive Wuhan Virus, abortion-tainted vaccine!

 

The father who abandoned his spouse and children to an evil and abusive stepfather have committed the ultimate child abuse today, not surprising since they spent years covering up abuse.

Popes Francis, Benedict receive their first doses of COVID-19 vaccine (catholicregister.org)

They took a vaccine for the Wuhan Virus that was developed using the stem lines of an aborted baby for testing. In the post one below, Thomas Cardinal Collins, Metropolitan Archbishop of Toronto stated:

Good luck boys on your particular judgement. I expect at the Last Judgement, the victim will be there to accuse you to all of us.

Vengeance is mine, and recompense, for the time when their foot shall slip;                      because the day of their calamity is at hand, their doom comes swiftly.                                                                                                                     Deuteronomy 32:35

Friday, 15 January 2021

Cardinal Collins of Toronto relents - Mass permitted for weddings and funerals - "encourages" Catholics to take a vaccine tested on aborted baby's stem cells!

On January 13, Cardinal Collins issues a memorandum to "all clergy and staff" of the Archdiocese of Toronto now posted on the web page at Cardinal Collins update - January 13, 2021.pdf (archtoronto.org). One might ask why this was not addressed to the directly to the "faithful." Unless one's priest communicates these or you look at the web page, or read Vox Cantoris, how would you know what the Cardinal is doing or advising?

No doubt under intense pressure as many have been inundating the Cardinal with over his inane decision to ban the public celebration of Holy Mass but permitting a "communion service," Collins has permitted Mass up to ten persons for weddings and funerals. If for weddings and funerals, why not just every day, Your Eminence? Why not order it to happen in all parishes, daily rather than leave it to the Andy MacBeth's of the world to shut down parishes completely as he has done at St. Margaret of Scotland. He's still looking for money all over the parish bulleting. MacBeth shuts the church but expects you to open your wallet. And the Cardinal permits this.

In a salute to big-pharma and the globalist cabal, Collins says that we "pray" for a vaccination process even though the currently available vaccines were tested on the stem lines of an aborted baby. Collins even offers church property to the "virtuous" health officials to jab you in the arm. At the document above, Collins gives you links where theologians twist themselves into pretzels justifying why it's okay to take a vaccine that has used a murdered baby in its development. 

We can open our churches for an abortion tainted vaccine but not for Holy Mass.

Quite the legacy.

Bergoglio legalises women to be Instituted Lectors and Acolytes

Giving yet one more reason to abandon the Novus Ordo Missae, its errors and the culture which has formed it and which it continues to form for tradition, Bishop of Rome, Francis, has today formerly permitted women to be Instituted Lectors and Acolytes. 

For those unaware, a little history. Prior to 1973 there were two orders on the path to ordination in religious orders and seminaries. These were the minor orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcist and Acolyte known as the Minor Orders and Subdeacon, Deacon and Priest, known as the Major Orders. At one time, these minor orders were not just reserved to those on the path to the priesthood but were open to laymen as servants of the Mass, particularly Lector, to sing the Old Testament Lessons, never the Epistle (Subdeacon) and to serve as Acoyte - to bear the candles, the cross was carried by the Subdeacon. In 1973, Paul VI eliminated these to be replaced by Lector and Acolyte for seminarians but also again for laymen. Other than the Diocese of Lincoln and at one time in LaCrosse and in the odd and rare situation for a layman to support the liturgy in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, no bishop that I know of ever made wide use of the provision for an Instituted Lector or Acolyte. No doubt because it could no include women and an Instituted man would displace Susan from the Parish Council reading at Mass. Don't even get me started on Serviettes - Girl Altar Boys.

Today, Jorge Bergoglio has changed all that. If he were ever truly interested in instituting the laity in this manner why did he not do it in Buenos Aires. 

This is about sowing seeds and tearing down. 

A few days ago, a priest said to me, "They are trying to build a new church."

Indeed they are.

One more thing.

With the tragic situation in Italy and the world brought about by germ warfare unleashed upon the world by communist China, with all the unemployment, the loss of business, the loss of life, the depression, suicide, alcoholism and more, this is what Bergoglio focuses on.

Nothing this writer writes will change his mind. Nothing will move him. It does not matter. We must always speak truth to power. We must never submit to these evil men. The man is not your friend, nor mine. He is no friend of Christ.

It is the Feast of the Holy Family or, if you prefer, the Baptism of the Lord and you know the line.

 For Thomas Cardinal Collins and the clericalist overlords there is a Holy Mass. But there is 

And given what Doug Ford is going to do this week, there won't be one for a long while.

Bergoglio tells you to take the China Virus vaccine - "It must be done!"

For nearly eight years, I along with may others have exposed the errors and horrors of Jorge Mario Bergoglio. How many times have I written that the man is an evil monster?

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were tested on the stem lines of an aborted baby. Other vaccines are worse in that they are using stem lines in production. This is not hyperbole. Theologians can debate the degree of evil and participation with it in the same way as they can debate how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. 

Let those theologians debate it with Jesus Christ, King of the Universe at their particular judgement. I will be held accountable for much including calling this man who at least denies being the Vicar of Christ, "an evil monster." I will take my purgatory for that, I will not take Hell for the vaccine. I will not have that baby beside Jesus at my judgement to accuse me of taking part of her body for this.

What will you do?

Guest post by Pater Ignotus: A Reflection on the Feast of the Epiphany, 2021

A Reflection on the Feast of the Epiphany, 2021 

In the Traditional calendar we are now in Epiphanytide. We continue to reflect on this Mystery of light, the manifestation of Christ to the nations. The importance of this Feast theologically and liturgically cannot be overstated. St Peter Chrysologus observed: In the mystery of our Lord’s Incarnation there were clear indications of his eternal Godhead. Yet the great events we celebrate today disclose and reveal in different ways the fact that God himself took a human body. Mortal man, enshrouded always in darkness, must not be left in ignorance, and so be deprived of what he can understand and retain only by grace (Sermon 160 PL 52, 620-622). This mystery and all mysteries need to be celebrated in all their splendour and import, lest we be left in ignorance, and so be deprived of what [we] can understand and retain only by grace. In the Church, this instruction is generally speaking accessible in the sermon or homily; and the grace to retain what we have learned is obtained through the celebration of the Sacraments and our willingness to be formed by the doctrine of the faith. 

The Epiphany celebrates the truth of Our Saviour revealed to the nations as the world’s salvation and glory. He who is the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega is both the ontological and cosmological centre of our life. When we consider the journey of the magi guided by the star, we are given to understand something of the grandeur of the Mystery of the Incarnation. The whole of creation, the world itself, the stars and the heavens, the cosmos in its entirety proclaim the wonder of this Mystery and through the nature that He has created, God reveals and announces the world’s salvation. There is no other means to salvation than Christ, for in him all the fullness of God dwells in bodily form (Col. 2:9). The revised liturgical calendar fails to give this Feast the recognition it merits as this Feast is in most places relegated to the first Sunday of the new year. 

There is much to learn from the magi about our own journey to God. These men undertook an arduous journey in search for the truth. We can imagine the challenges they faced travelling as they did on foot and with the aid of animals. Their experience resonates with those of the faithful who in this unprecedented time certainly in our country set out on journeys in search of the sacraments and especially the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We think also of the priests who are now beginning to undertake their own travels and journeys from place to place in their efforts to bring the sacraments of the scattered and fervent remnant faithful. 

Anyone who assents to Our Lord’s invitation of salvation undertakes a very personal and intimate journey out of the self. This is perhaps the hardest of all journeys because we leave behind in some cases the illusion of spiritual and moral self-sufficiency and in others, the prisons of despair and doubt that prevent us from living the fullness of life in Christ by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. Just as the star beckoned the magi out of their country, so the light of God’s truth beckons us out of the darkness of ignorance and the chaos of lies that afflicts the world in the absence of the light of God’s truth. 

The prince of this world appears at this time to have the upper hand, certainly as it concerns the exercise of our freedoms and especially our freedom to worship God. Our Lord says of the devil: He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies (Jn. 8:44). The excuse of the pandemic is being used to deprive us of the basic tenets of justice. This is increasingly evident as the duplicity of the ruling class is exposed. This chaos of lies has spilled over into the ecclesiastical sphere and in many cases it would seem, has found more than a ready welcome. A “health dictatorship” is fast becoming a tyranny and those who govern the Church, with very few exceptions, have made common cause with the governing class in what amounts to the oppression of the Church. Is this cooperation willful, that is to say, formal? The effects of this new ungodly order are already seen in the trivialization of the Eucharist in its different modes of reception, some of which can only be described as sacrilegious. Those who govern the Church have a grave responsibility before God for the souls that He has entrusted to them. Cardinal Manning soberly observed that sacrilege carries the seeds of its own dissolution. Those entrusted with the care of souls, and this includes parents and educators, do well to ponder these words. The sacraments and most especially the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass cannot be in any way compromised by even the faintest hint of irreverence and most especially sacrilege. We may soon witness the dissolution of the great façade of a worldly church, of the antichurch that has relativized the truth of Christ and is now silently complicit in the attack against the truth of Christ and by consequence also the Church of Christ with her deposit of the faith (depositum fidei). 

Those who love the Messiah, Our Saviour and the Church he founded must now imitate what St. Leo the Great calls the obedience of the star [that] calls us to imitate its humble service; to be servants as best we can of the grace that invites all men to find Christ. The obedience of the star that leads to Christ becomes the obedience of faith (Rom. 16:26) by which we ourselves are drawn evermore deeply into the Mystery of Christ and in turn, lead others to Him. The deepening of faith accompanied by a willingness to sacrifice for the sake of the truth of Christ gives birth to a life of genuine piety and the fruits of a devout life: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness [and] faithfulness (Gal. 5:22), to name but a few. A devout life in Christ lived humbly and generously in a spirit of prayer is what we the faithful need to be fortified in this time of trial and the witness of such a life will invite others to find Christ. The magi inspire us to become co-workers of the truth (cooperatores veritatis), willing especially in these our times to search out places where the truth of Christ is cherished and proclaimed. The journey of the magi is our journey into the Heart of Christ Our Saviour, King and centre of all hearts, and in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. -- Pater Ignotus

 

I wish more Catholics in Toronto loved Mass more than they fear (a tiny risk of) death

The title of this post is borrowed from Dorothy Cummings at LifeSiteNews,  I wish more Catholics in Scotland love the Mass more than they fear (a tiny risk of) death.

The communists in Poland could not shut down the Holy Mass. Yet, here in Ontario, many parts of Canada and the United States our politicians have done it and where they have not, our bishops and Cardinals, such as Cardinal Thomas Collins here in Toronto have done what the communists in Poland could not do.

If Catholics in Toronto rose up and demanded that Cardinal Collins open churches for Mass, even at ten, and threw down the gauntlet to Ford that we would be reestablishing Mass at 30% and that he must immediately declare church attendance as "essential," do you not think he would do something? The man is fundamentally weak and ineffectual - that has been proven by his dithering and reversing of decisions in the past. True to form, this kind of personality can also be tyrannical, as has happened recently with a certain priest forced into early retirement. If you've watched the leaked webinar, he repeatedly said, "I will shut you down, I will shut you down, I will shut you down." 

Toronto Catholics, what are you doing? Do you care about the Mass more than the fear of really, really, really tiny risk of illness or death where there is no documented evidence that any of this came from the Holy Mass?

Cardinal Collins to pay churches to livestream - what are the implications? What does this really mean?

Earlier today, the Archdiocese of Toronto under the authority of Cardinal Collins and issued by Jim Milway, a layman and Chancellor of Spiritual Affairs, a memorandum to all priests and parishes. The Archdiocese will give a grant of up to $10,000 for adding or improving the capability of live-streaming. 

Those parishes that have done live-streaming are apparently learning that is valuable beyond just the celebration of the Holy Mass according to the document.

But what does this mean? What is the Archdiocese telling us by the issuance of this memorandum and grant which could be in the millions of dollars.

Cardinal Collins is telling us that we are far from having any regular restoration of Holy Mass and church life. They have refused to do their duty and defend the Church from the diktats of politicians who have attached our constitutional rights and they are in panic mode. 

Panic mode?

The funds come out of the trust from the Family of Faith campaign not regular collections and the cathedraticum. The are in panic mode because they see the cathedraticum collapsing as parish contributions dry up.

They close our churches and expect we should still open our wallets. They deny  us the sacraments and expect us not to deny them funds. They will stop at nothing to fine every way to keep in touch with us because they know that Epiphanytide is history and Lent, the Triduum and Easter are gone too. They want to reach into your computer to keep a hold on us and our wallets. 

Why not just suggest people watch the feed from St. Michael's Cathedral? 

Because it is all about money and as I've been told by many a Toronto priest, the post-China Virus Toronto Church is going to look a lot different. Mass closures are coming. 

Nobody is coming to save us. 

Except Our Lord Jesus Christ. "Put not your trust in princes."

We are living a lie and Dumb and Dumber want you to keep buying it. Now, who are Dumb and Dumber?

You'll find them somewhere, they are on this blog. Smiling and cajoling one another. I know where I'll be at 12:00 Noon Saturday. 


Today is the Feast of the Epiphany, it was not last Sunday but regardless, there is still, according to the diktats of Toronto's Cardinal Thomas Collins

 


And it is an utter disgrace. That this man, this so-called Shepherd of the Catholic faithful in the Metropolitan See of Toronto, has since before Advent cancelled the public celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. That is quite the legacy in what will no doubt be his last year as Archbishop of Toronto. This man has denied you the Holy Mass. This man has denied God His due right to public worship. This man has denied you the sacraments because many of his presbyterate have chosen to cower in their rectories out of more fear for a bad flu than of God and Hell itself. This man's people determined that it is "just not worth it" to have Mass when the church must be limited to ten by provincial diktat of an imbecilic unchurched lout. This man, this Cardinal, has failed utterly in his duty before God and His flock to defend the Church, to uphold the rights of the God and the rights of the faithful. He has put mammon from the government ahead of you and your desire to worship God.

Yet, there others, other priests, many other priests who will never be identified by this writer here or anywhere else who are ministering to the faithful who do not refuse to offer the Holy Sacrifice. These priests who are loved by God and by his people. These priests who are risking everything for the faithful. To these priests, to these men of Christ, to these humble servants who have a higher obedience, to Jesus Christ Himself rather than sinful men who have put in their lot with the corrupt state, to these priests, and you know who you are because you are reading this, we salute you. we thank you. we love you. May God bless each and every one of you and protect you from the diktats of a corrupted church and state.

If you cannot get to Mass on a rock, or in a basement chapel or on a dining room, or in the forest or a barn (and don't think for a moment that I am exaggerating) may I suggest you pray at least Matins, Lauds and Vespers for today from the Divine Office tab which you find above. It will take you to today's date and my recommendation is according to Divino Afflatu. 

Please enjoy the uplifting music for Epiphany. God bless you.

EPISTLE Acts 4:8-12

In those days, Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said to them: "Ye princes of the people and ancients, hear.
