Mimico Iconoclasts

Perusing through a neighbourhood Facebook page promoting a community event, I came across this picture of St. Leo's Catholic Church from 1961. For those of you familiar with The Oratory in Toronto, Holy Family is the "Mother Church" of St. Leo's and the original church building was the first Catholic Church in what was this part of Toronto.

The mural appears to be St. Leo the Great meeting with Attila the Hun in A.D. 452. Pope St. Leo the Great also combated the Pelagian and Manichean heresies. This hero and Vicar of Christ now hides behind a beige and yellow "sponge" wall and the Altar is replaced by the chair of the presider of man!

Another prime example of the pathetically false interpretation of the Second Vatican Council.

I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Okay, so you don't think I've gone totally charismatic with my post below; here is one of my favourites and I'll sing it tomorrow at the Anticipated Mass at St. John the Evangelist during Communion--but I'll sing the Proper first!

Wow, I used to sing like this too...

The Battle for the Ancient Mass

I urge you to sit back and listen to Father Calvin Goodwin, FSSP, from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Nebraska as he discusses the history and struggles associated with the Traditional Latin Mass in this hour long talk.

There are remarkable quotes from Leo XIII, Pius X, Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI and insight into the pathetic opposition at the highest levels to the traditional liturgy.
