Cardinal Collins approves Sunday Communion Service without Mass to end of lockdown - but is there more to the story?

 


What was once satirical has now become reality.

Subject: Dec. 30 Communication from Cardinal Collins - Direction regarding additional Holy Communion Services 

December 30, 2020 

To all clergy and staff of the Archdiocese of Toronto, 

Blessings to you and your parishioners during this Christmas season! Thank you for all that you continue to do.

I have received feedback from priests and the Auxiliary Bishops regarding the Holy Communion Services held on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Those who were able to offer these services have indicated that it was a fruitful opportunity to provide the faithful with spiritual nourishment given the current lockdown restrictions. Some parishes have requested that permission be granted to continue the services on weekends during the lockdown period.

By way of this communication, I grant permission, for parishes that wish to do so, to continue offering Holy Communion Services, at times determined by the pastor, on Saturdays after 3:00 pm, and on Sundays. This may continue during the period of lockdown. The text previously circulated should be used for these services, and adapted (as with a short Gospel reading from the Sunday, and the Sunday Collect). Parishes wishing to organize Holy Communion Services must observe WorshipSafe protocols and ensure this can be done safely, with no more than 10 people inside the church at any given time.

Parishes are under no obligation to offer Holy Communion Services but should remain open for private prayer on a regular basis, with a schedule determined by the pastor.  The availability of the Sacrament of Reconciliation is also important. And it is spiritually helpful for parishes to continue to livestream services, where possible, and to maintain outreach with parishioners using appropriate communication tools.

I pray that these options provide spiritual support for your community during the lockdown period. Once again, I thank you for your incredible work this year in caring for the faithful under these most difficult circumstances. 

Sincerely in Christ, 

Thomas Cardinal Collins

Archbishop of Toronto

Notwithstanding that the Ford government has severely limited church attendance to ten with little pushback except from some brave Baptists and Evangelicals, the Cardinal has shut down public Mass, though the Bishop of St. Catharines and the Bishop of Pembroke have not, Mass continues with the provincial limit.

The alternative that Cardinal Collins has now provided is the communion service as on Christmas to be held every Sunday until the lockdown is lifted. The Cardinal should be commended for his munificence and spiritual concern. We should thank him for we have been given the "crumbs from the Master's table."

Yet, as with anything, the devil is in the details and in this, he really is. The parishes are under "no obligation" and they "should" remain open for private prayer, not must, not will, but should. Permission to easily ignore his request.

We see now our problem. Let us look at just one parish, St. Margaret of Scotland in the tony neighbourhood of Avenue Road. A pastor, Andy MacBeth an Associate Alexander MacDonald and a Deacon Robert Klinghorn and not one of them has the decency to follow the Cardinal's request and provide the Holy Communion service or open the church for private prayer. There was no Holy Communion for you on Christmas at St. Margaret of Scotland and now the Church is sealed up. We can shame these three clerics for their lack of charity, their lack of faith, their lack of spiritual care. You can read to the right and at this link the proof of their dereliction. 27 DECEMBER 2020 FEAST OF THE HOLY FAMILY OF JESUS, MARY AND JOSEPH.pdf (archtoronto.org)

How many other Father MacBeth's are there? Slothful, selfish and arrogant clericalists. Television narcissists. Cowards cowering in their rectories. Do they have compromised immune systems and fear a virus more than they fear Hell, a Hell that they probably don't believe exists. How many within the Toronto presbyterate have told the Cardinal they won't cooperate? Where is their "obedience" to their Ordinary. Did MacBeth not promise obedience to the bishop that ordained him and his successors?

If this is the case, the responsibility for the failure falls right back on Cardinal Collins who has failed to lead. Failed to challenge the Premier in court. Failure to order his priests to be priests after the model of St. John Vianney or St. Maximillian Kolbe or to follow the example of Bishop Michael Power who gave his life bringing the sacraments to the sick and dying in this very city. He didn't cower in his rectory like Andy MacBeth.

Update: I'm told in the combox that Father MacDonald is a good man and probably following the necessary "obedience" to the pastor. Poor man was just ordained two years ago. Imagine what he has to put up with now? Shut up in a rectory for heaven knows how long with Andy MacBeth. This "obedience" is why I get these memos from priests, not a priest, priests. This is why nearly daily I receive phone calls, text messages, emails from priests echoing their disgust at the Cardinal's actions and the Andy MacBeth's who seem to be in the majority. 

Cardinal Collins, this is to be your legacy. You can change it.

The Reverend Father Yves Normandin - Requiescat in pace

 


It is reported that Father Yves Normandin has passed into eternity this morning at 4:50 A.M. EST. Father Normandin was a priest of Montreal who was the father of the restoration of the traditional Mass movement in Canada. There were three of these men, all who ministered in their own way. Father John Mole, OMI who founded the community of St. Clement in Ottawa died in 2004. Father Liam Gavigan, whom I knew personally and worked with him numerous times, passed on in 2017 and founded the communities now at St. Lawrence the Martyr and St. Patrick's in Schomberg in the Archdiocese of Toronto. It was Father Normandin, however, who was the lion. He travelled the entire country establishing chapels and offering the Mass in homes paving the way for both the Society of St. Pius X, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and other diocesan traditional Masses. Without Father Normandin and Mole and Gavigan, the Mass would have been lost entirely. There was a time, that there were only three priests in all of Canada offering the pre-modernist Latin Rite. This trinity of servants of God and his people are heroes.

No information is yet available on details. 

Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Requiescat in pace. Amen.

The history of the Mass in Quebec is inseparably tied up with the history of Fr. Yves Normandin and Sainte-Yvett’s parish in Montréal. On 14th May 1975 Fr. Normandin decided to revert to the Mass of his ordination. On April 18, however, the CCCB had decreed that, effective 30th June 1975, only ill and elderly priests could thenceforth celebrate the traditional Mass, and only in private.

Oct. 27th 1975 in a meeting with Abp. Grégoire Fr. Normandin was told ‘I must demand your resignation because you stubbornly insist on celebrating the Mass of St. Pius V, contrary to the ordinance of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops…… You are to resign immediately. Otherwise, effective Nov. 5, you shall lose all jurisdiction in this diocese.”

Nov. 9th Abp. Lefebvre celebrates pontifical high Mass at Sainte-Yvette’s. Nov. 12th. Mgr. Grégoire published a letter which declared the Mass of all time is no longer the Mass of today, and that the cure of Sainte-Yvette’s is deserving of his removal by virtue of his unrepentant disobedience to the Church.

To cut a long story short the battle moves on to court, to the barricading of the rectory doors and the changing of locks; to Fr. Normandin having to leave the rectory, on Dec. 15th by stepladder from the balcony to escape notice of the guards and attend court. The rectory doors are broken down and Fr. Normadin starts a new phase in the ‘Traditional Latin Mass Movement’ in Canada.

This phase is what I would characterize as that of a wandering priest. Fr. Normandin ‘As a young man, I had dreamed of an apostolate as an itinerant missionary in the jungle, with the White Fathers of Africa. Now, at 52 years of age, I discover that Canada, thanks to our own post conciliar bishops, has become a missionary frontier, once again a spiritually barren land, offering itself to priests loyal to infallible and indestructible Tradition.

‘Every Sunday about 400 continue to attend the Traditional Latin Mass in spacious quarters in Montréal and we have found the means to expand our ministry, to Ottawa and to Northern New Brunswick, to Toronto, London and Stratford, to Winnipeg and to Vancouver and Victoria and even as far away as Florida.’

After the expulsion of Fr. Normandin there arose a movement under the leadership of Mr. Roman Bhattacharya. It is from this movement's fidelity to the traditional Roman Liturgy that formed primarily the faithful group, which is at the origin of the community Saint-Paul in Montreal. Their first "priest", providentially, was Fr. Normandin who for nine years after the expulsion from his Parish, led a heroic life of missionary activity providing access to the traditional liturgy across the Canada. It is at this point that Fr. Normandin visited Vancouver to offer the Mass.

Fr. Normandin was parish priest of the Latin Community Catholic St-Paul October 7, 1985, to January 1, 2010, i.e. for almost twenty-five years before finally retiring.

On this Feast of St. Thomas Becket, English Bishop and Martyr who stood up to a maniacal King

Cardinal Thomas Christopher Collins, who often quotes the later English martyrs of St. Thomas, More and St. John Fisher, has decreed that there will be 

TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS PROPERS IN ENGLISH: SAINT THOMAS OF CANTERBURY (1170 A.D.); Within the Octave of Christmas; Saint David the King (973 B.C.) (tridentine-mass.blogspot.com)

Not even St. Thomas Becket can be enough of an example to our Cardinal and the rest of his cadre of that which is necessary at this time when our governments have decreed that churches be limited to attendance of only ten, though Collins has shut down public Mass outright.

Let us take some consolation in the President of the United States of America who acknowledges the Martyr's willingness to speak truth to power.

My sources tell me the Cardinal is not pleased with my work. I dare him to say, "Won't someone rid me of this meddlesome blogger?"

It's been tried by someone else who shares his name and that of this great Saint and Martyr.

But Eminence, feel free to give it your best shot.


PROCLAMATIONS 

Proclamation on 850th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket

Issued on: December 28, 2020

Today is the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket on December 29, 1170. Thomas Becket was a statesman, a scholar, a chancellor, a priest, an archbishop, and a lion of religious liberty. 

Before the Magna Carta was drafted, before the right to free exercise of religion was enshrined as America’s first freedom in our glorious Constitution, Thomas gave his life so that, as he said, “the Church will attain liberty and peace.” 

The son of a London sheriff and once described as “a lowborn clerk” by the King who had him killed, Thomas Becket rose to become the leader of the church in England. When the crown attempted to encroach upon the affairs of the house of God through the Constitutions of Clarendon, Thomas refused to sign the offending document. When the furious King Henry II threatened to hold him in contempt of royal authority and questioned why this “poor and humble” priest would dare defy him, Archbishop Becket responded “God is the supreme ruler, above Kings” and “we ought to obey God rather than men.” 

Because Thomas would not assent to rendering the church subservient to the state, he was forced to forfeit all his property and flee his own country. Years later, after the intervention of the Pope, Becket was allowed to return — and continued to resist the King’s oppressive interferences into the life of the church. Finally, the King had enough of Thomas Becket’s stalwart defense of religious faith and reportedly exclaimed in consternation: “Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?” 

The King’s knights responded and rode to Canterbury Cathedral to deliver Thomas Becket an ultimatum: give in to the King’s demands or die. Thomas’s reply echoes around the world and across the ages. His last words on this earth were these: “For the name of Jesus and the protection of the Church, I am ready to embrace death.” Dressed in holy robes, Thomas was cut down where he stood inside the walls of his own church. 

Thomas Becket’s martyrdom changed the course of history. It eventually brought about numerous constitutional limitations on the power of the state over the Church across the West. In England, Becket’s murder led to the Magna Carta’s declaration 45 years later that: “[T]he English church shall be free, and shall have its rights undiminished and its liberties unimpaired.” 

When the Archbishop refused to allow the King to interfere in the affairs of the Church, Thomas Becket stood at the intersection of church and state. That stand, after centuries of state-sponsored religious oppression and religious wars throughout Europe, eventually led to the establishment of religious liberty in the New World. It is because of great men like Thomas Becket that the first American President George Washington could proclaim more than 600 years later that, in the United States, “All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship” and that “it is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people, that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights.” 

Thomas Becket’s death serves as a powerful and timeless reminder to every American that our freedom from religious persecution is not a mere luxury or accident of history, but rather an essential element of our liberty. It is our priceless treasure and inheritance. And it was bought with the blood of martyrs. 

As Americans, we were first united by our belief that “rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God” and that defending liberty is more important than life itself. If we are to continue to be the land of the free, no government official, no governor, no bureaucrat, no judge, and no legislator must be allowed to decree what is orthodox in matters of religion or to require religious believers to violate their consciences. No right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions. As I declared in Krasiński Square in Warsaw, Poland on July 6, 2017, the people of America and the people of the world still cry out: “We want God.” 

On this day, we celebrate and revere Thomas Becket’s courageous stand for religious liberty and we reaffirm our call to end religious persecution worldwide. In my historic address to the United Nations last year, I made clear that America stands with believers in every country who ask only for the freedom to live according to the faith that is within their own hearts. I also stated that global bureaucrats have absolutely no business attacking the sovereignty of nations that wish to protect innocent life, reflecting the belief held by the United States and many other countries that every child — born and unborn — is a sacred gift from God. Earlier this year, I signed an Executive Order to prioritize religious freedom as a core dimension of United States foreign policy. We have directed every Ambassador — and the over 13,000 United States Foreign Service officers and specialists — in more than 195 countries to promote, defend, and support religious freedom as a central pillar of American diplomacy. 

We pray for religious believers everywhere who suffer persecution for their faith. We especially pray for their brave and inspiring shepherds — like Cardinal Joseph Zen of Hong Kong and Pastor Wang Yi of Chengdu — who are tireless witnesses to hope. 

To honor Thomas Becket’s memory, the crimes against people of faith must stop, prisoners of conscience must be released, laws restricting freedom of religion and belief must be repealed, and the vulnerable, the defenseless, and the oppressed must be protected. The tyranny and murder that shocked the conscience of the Middle Ages must never be allowed to happen again. As long as America stands, we will always defend religious liberty. 

A society without religion cannot prosper. A nation without faith cannot endure — because justice, goodness, and peace cannot prevail without the grace of God. 

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim December 29, 2020, as the 850th anniversary of the martyrdom of Saint Thomas Becket. I invite the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches and customary places of meeting with appropriate ceremonies in commemoration of the life and legacy of Thomas Becket. 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-eighth day of December, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.

It is the Feast of the Holy Innocents and in Toronto and most of Ontario, Herod is ruling and there is


Therefore, since these wretched hirelings care not about your spiritual life, I offer you this.

How very sad.

HOLY INNOCENTS

Martyrs 

WITHIN THE OCTAVE OF CHRISTMAS 

DOUBLE, SECOND CLASS / PURPLE

There is mixed joy and sorrow in the feast of the innocent victims of the first persecution. The Church rejoices at the spiritual victory of the young witnesses to Christ. The purple vestments of the Mass denote the Church's common grief with the mothers of Bethlehem, who saw their babies massacred by the jealousy of Herod. 

INTROIT Ps. 8:3 Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings, O God, You have fashioned praise because of Your enemies. Ps. 8:2. O Lord, our Lord, how glorious is Your name over all the earth! V. Glory be . . . 

COLLECT

O God, the martyred innocents bore witness to You this day not by words but by laying down their lives. Destroy in us the evil of sin, so that our lives may bear witness to our faith in You, which we profess in words. Through Our Lord . . . 

Commemoration of the SUNDAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

O Almighty and Eternal God, direct our actions according to Your holy will, so that, in the name of Your beloved Son, we may lead lives that are marked by good deeds; who lives and rules with You . . . 

EPISTLE Apoc. 14:1-5

In those days, I beheld: and lo a Lamb stood upon mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty-four thousand, having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the noise of many waters and as the voice of great thunder. And the voice which I heard was as the voice of harpers, harping on their harps. And they sung as it were a new canticle, before the throne and before the four living creatures and the ancients: and no man could say the canticle, but those hundred forty-four thousand who were purchased from the earth. These are they who were not defiled with women: for they are virgins. These follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were purchased from among men, the first fruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth there was found no lie: for they are without spot before the throne of God.

GRADUAL Ps. 123:7-8 Our soul has been rescued as a bird from the snare of the hunters.

V. The snare has been broken and we are free. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 

TRACT Ps. 78:3, 10

They have poured out the blood of the saints like water around Jerusalem. V. And there was no one to bury them.

V. Avenge, O Lord, the blood of Your saints which has been shed upon the earth. 

GOSPEL Matt. 2:13-18

At that time, an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying: "Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt: and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him." Who arose, and took the child and his mother by night, and retired into Egypt: and he was there until the death of Herod: That it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: "Out of Egypt have I called my son."

Then Herod perceiving that he was deluded by the wise men, was exceeding angry: and sending killed all the men children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying: "A voice in Rama was heard, lamentation and great mourning; Rachel bewailing her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not."

It's Sunday and you know the line. All together now ...

It is Sunday, the Sunday within the Octave of Christmas or if you follow the new calendar, the Feast of the Holy Family. It is also the Feast of St. John the Evangelist.

It is Sunday and in the Archdiocese of Toronto and most the Province of Ontario except for the Diocese of St. Catharines led by Bishop Bergie, there is


He really does a good impression of the Soup Nazi

What should Cardinal Collins have done?

Forget court. It is too late for that, he would be laughed out. He should have done this in March, he accepted the law, no matter how unjust or ridiculous.

Let us consider the current Ontario "lockdown." Chairman Douglas Ford, General-secretary of the Ontario Politburo has reduced church attendance from 30% to a hard number of 10, that is correct, 10! Even the cathedral as you can see one post below. Idiocy. Walmart, Costco and Pearson International Airport are swamped with people but there is no Mass for you.

St. Thomas More, someone whom Collins loves to quote, would have advised the bishops of his day to give due respect to the King and his Law. Give the devil his due as long as you do not sin. Let's work with ten.

1.    No matter the challenge, each pastor and secretary develop a list of people and a rotation, whatever works for them and their parish. Parishioners are expected to show patience and respect that fairness for attending is critical. 

2.    No public Holy Communion. Those of us in the Latin Mass communities have been doing without since March rather than receive on the hand. In the community where I am choir director and Cantor, we lost about 24% when we came back in June. Guess what? Since September, and Christmas morning was our largest yet, we have more people coming than we did pre-China virus We made up for all those who refuse to come back or left for the SSPX which is now also limited by the Ford diktats, and then some. Something else? They come, more and more and they know they cannot have Holy Communion.

3.    Holy Communion is by appointment only on the tongue, if requested, because the priest can wear a mask and wash his hands with soap and water before and after. Simple.

4.     Limit the homily to three minutes. 

5.    Every priest is authorised to offer up to five Masses. Two priests in a parish, that is ten Masses.

There, done.

The four ends of the Mass. - Adoration to God, thanksgiving to God for his blessings, the seeking of forgiveness for our sins and petitioning for our needs. Note that the first two are focused on Him, not us. The great error on Collins' part is the thelogy of assemblyism. Odd, considering his motto is "Adore God." 

Now, Your Eminence, find those two parts and get on with it. Enough of your cowardice in the face of evil.

A Merry Christmas rant and wish

This has been quite the year and this Christmas letter is going to be a rant, so be ready. 

My last Christmas activities were greatly curtailed or wiped out completely, including much of the singing and many Masses because of an illness that was no doubt in my mind, the China Virus. It began on or around the 19th of December, on the 23rd I had great trouble with my lungs and was put on azithromycin. On the 24th a fever of 102 which ranged for six days no lower than 100 kept me home from Midnight Mass. The breathing only slightly improved over the week but by the 31st I was in hospital with pericarditis and myocarditis brought on, according to the cardiologist by a "virus which you may have or had, we don't know, we can't find or identify it. A virus which migrated from your lungs to attack your heart." Don't believe our lying politicians and scientists. The China Virus was in Canada in at least November as it was in the United States and Europe. Probably earlier in Italy and certainly in Wuhan itself. The system came crashing down there in early December, remember the doctor who later passed on that was arrested? For that to happen in Wuhan, it must have been building for months, maybe as early as September. The blood test from the ABC Study which I was part of was inconclusive, "unlikely." Then again, the sample was taken in late July 2020, seven months after the infection. They will test again. The consensus seems to be that antibodies last three months. That is very revealing as to how efficacious the vaccine may or may not be. If it was not then the China Virus then I don't know what it could have been. What I can tell you that it was not a cold, not a flu, not bronchitis, not pneumonia. It was all that and more. 

Here we are a year later. In Toronto and many of the surrounding regions, Mass is verboten and will be until at least the end of January in most of Ontario, except for the Diocese of St. Catharines. Not by the Premier and his  ridiculous limit of ten but by our Cardinal who one upped him and made it zero. No Mass for you and Merry Christmas from Cowardinal Thomas "The Grinch" Collins. It seems that all we have left is mocking. They listen not to the little people. They answer no emails, no letters, no calls. They care not about you but you can be assured, they want your money. They discussed in their various webinars pre-authorized chequing and on line donations. All the churches have point of purchase devices. They want your money but won't provide you the Mass and Sacraments. 

No one is coming to save us well no one except our Lord Jesus Christ, certainly nobody in this world, this archdiocese. We have been abandoned by all of them. They are corrupt, compromised, cowardly and in many cases incompetent. 

Cardinal Collins should have been in court over church closings in March, a time when most of us accepted certain restrictions because we did not know what we were dealing with. I regret accepting it so readily. A judge would laugh him out of court now. "Where have you been, Eminence? You come to my court now but you accepted it for nine months and you took the government money to stay solvent. Don't waste my time." 

These episcopal hirelings are wicked. I have seen much over the last dozen years or so and kept quiet about most of it. Shall we consider the invitation to the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter come to Toronto and the fake promises, granting of a parish - Canadian Martyrs and then the stripping of it away a few days later? How about punishing them because they are called to a higher authority and refused his H1N1 edict to band Holy Communion on the tongue. Did he banish them or were they so disgusted they gave up the next Lent and left? I know the truth, I was the Schola Master and they will never be back in Toronto. 

How about the personal betrayal when I was unjustly threatened by Thomas J. Rosica in a well publicized lawsuit? Do you think my Archbishop reached out to me in any way? Not once. Not directly, not indirectly. Collins would have been happy to see me twist on a vine. Yet, a bishop in an obscure part of a former Soviet satellite reached out to me and my wife directly and personally. Offered holy Mass numerous times  A then Vatican Cardinal made it known that he was praying for us. Where was my bishop? 

How about direct knowledge after complaints of active homosexual priests being left in the parish. You know the saying? "Keep it legal, keep it quiet, keep it going." The rule out of Southdown and the general order in Toronto is "keep it within the presbyterate." Like that? How about the forced early retirement and persecutions of various priests. One happening right now. Not abusers. Not embezzlers but not compromisers with the lavender crowd and the diktats of lesser men. How about his time as Rector of St. Peter's Seminary when student seminarians went to him with complaints over homosexual professors making passes at them and his response was, "you have sex on the brain." Don't think it happened? I have first hand testimony. 

Now here we are at the end of 2020 with just over one year to go until Collins turns 75 and is replaced. Quite the legacy he leaves us. 

And what of Premier Doug Ford? A man who on one hand one could have a beer with and on the other rules his caucus with an iron fist and has intimidated every one there into silence by removing any and all opposition from within. As David Warren wrote yesterday, he is a "simpleton." Indeed, a simpleton. He said in March he was putting an "iron ring" around our seniors. Ha! More like rusty chicken wire. The overwhelming majority of China Virus cases and deaths are in long-term care and other congregant living situations and amongst the working poor that cannot work from a computer, do not have a job from which they can work at home. Testing is still taking four days. This is preposterous. He has failed to protect our seniors, he has not quarantined the vulnerable and their caregivers. Personal health support workers still travel between homes and are still functioning in the community. All these should be in our empty hotels on school buses to the nursing homes and then rotated on a cycle. Tested daily. The working poor who have no sick days, no union and cannot, not work and won't go for testing because they can't not work, must be tested with immediate results, ordered into quarantine with full pay from the employer subsidized by the government. with direct help from our churches - where is the Cardinal on this where with the preferential option for the poor? He speaks of "collateral damage" - it is all around us, what has he done? What has Ford done about it? Where is the action for these people to protect them and our communities? Nothing. No thinking outside the box. Just shut down the dress shop on Main Street but let Walmart sell its China made garbage. Let Home Depot sell a refrigerator or stove but not The Hudson's Bay or Leon's. Let Costco sell a big screen television but not Bad Boy. My American readers understand this, the same is happening there. 

Protect the vulnerable, the working poor and let us go to Mass and get on with life. Wear a mask where necessary, (no mask comments will be approved so don't make them, got it?) take your Vitamin D, wash your hands, be reasonable with how close you are to others. These things make sense this time of year whether for cold, flu or the China Virus. 

From Bergoglio to Collins to Ford, Fauci, Tam, - all of them are in the pockets of globalists who are trying to destroy our middle class, our wealth, our power. We must speak truth to this power with no apologies. Forget being polite or as Cowardinal Collins likes to say, "charity with clarity." Enough of this false charity. Enough of these frauds. 

Now, here I am a second Christmas and all its trimmings wiped out due to this virus that came to us from the communist regime in China. Created in a laboratory, accidentally or intentionally released but certainly intentionally used to destroy our societies. We are to believe that yesterday, Canada had 6,845 cases but China had 18? China with 1.4 billion people and Canada with 38 million covid stats world - Bing. If we believe China has only 18 cases, well, we deserve what we get. 

As I wrap up this little rant remember this. Jorge Bergoglio has not offered the Holy Sacrifice on the high altar at St. Peter's since he enthroned that "damned bowl" representative of the demonic pagan earth goddess. All of this that has beset us has come since the worship in the garden and in the basilica of pagan idols. God has been blasphemed. We saw it ourselves. He no longer considers himself the Vicar of Christ and he has spent the last year throwing himself fully into the arms of Sachs and the rest of these globalist monsters. Do not think that all of this is not linked? There are no coincidences. 

My friends, I thank you for your time coming to this blog. I thank you for tolerating my sometimes over the top commentary, it is all I have, all we have at this point. Unless there is something urgent, the next few days I will only post some of my favourite music. I've had enough and need a break. My wife says, I had enough three weeks ago. 

There is no one coming to save us. No one except the baby born in Bethlehem, laid in a manger, as were baby lambs to protect them, a manger from which they would eat and from which we are fed. 

God grant you a holy Christmas.

BISHOP BERGIE OF ST. CATHARINES DOES NOT BAN MASS - CARDINAL COLLINS AND THE REST OF ONTARIO BISHOPS - DO THE SAME NOW AND OPEN OUR CHURCHES!

UPDATE:

To show appreciation for Bishop Bergie not shutting down the Holy Mass nor banning Holy Communion on the tongue, please consider making a donation to the Diocese of St. Catharines. Feel free to advise the following of your donation by sending them a receipt and advising them that since there is no Mass for you, there is no money for them. After all, they are getting millions in government funding now and "he who the piper pays dances to the pipers tune.

Bishop Gerard Bergie of the Diocese of St. Catharines has tonight issued a protocol to all priests regarding the Ontario Provincial Government of Doug Ford's actions to lock down the Diocese and all of Ontario due to the China Virus and beginning on December 26. 


While we can debate whether ten persons versus thirty percent is necessary, the fact is, Doug Ford has not shut down churches. Doug Ford has not cancelled public worship. Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto has and others bishops in Ontario have wrongly followed his lead and poor betrayal of Christ and the faithful. 

Others except for Bishop Bergie who has left it to the Pastor to decide and how to open safely for ten people (including the priest, cantor or server, etcetera) and proceed with Mass following all other government diktats. Cardinal Sarah of the Congregation of Divine Worship has already authorized priests to offer up to four Masses per day during this crisis.

Since late November, this writer has been on a daily basis has put public pressure on Cardinal Collins to rescind his ridiculous decision to cancel public Mass. Now, Bishop Bergie has shown the way. If Cardinal Collins will not follow the pleading of this poor sinner, if he will not hear the sorrow of your own heart and longing to be at Mass no matter how hard, then let him at least follow the example of his brother Bishop.

CARDINAL THOMAS COLLINS - WE, THE FLOCK OF TORONTO HAVE HAD ENOUGH. IMMEDIATELY ANNOUNCE THAT YOU WILL FOLLOW BISHOP BERGIE'S EXAMPLE. RESTORE THE MASS FOR PUBLIC WORSHIP NOW, FOR CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS DAY AND AFTERWARDS. ENOUGH OF THIS PROTESTANT STYLE COMMUNION SERVICE!

O Rex Gentium

Doug Ford steps back from the brink of the abyss - barely! But Cardinal Collins will still say, "No Mass For You!"

Doug Ford looked into the abyss and stepped back from the brink. His original intention was to put Ontario in another China Virus lockdown on Christmas Eve at 12:01 A.M. now delayed until St. Stephen's Day on December 26th. Answering a question from the media to explain why not the original which proved the leak correct as he did not deny it, Ford stated that business needed a few more days to prepare and to reduce inventory and food in restaurants. Really? One day would have done this? No, not the reason. The reason is that most of the province outside of Toronto, Peel, Hamilton and Windsor are not in a serious outbreak, in Ottawa with a million people, only a handful of cases. One hand! He had blowback. Not that he reads this writer, though I do send these to him, his Minister of Health, my local Member of the Provincial Parliament and staff contacts, he heard it clear from the areas beyond greater Toronto. The Mayor of Ottawa railed at him. Remember, he would have, in the bulk of Ontario, shut down Holy Mass and Christian religious services completely (or maybe not so, more on this later) as well as business. From Ottawa and east, Pembroke, Kingston and the north shore of Lake Ontario east of Toronto, much of south western Ontario except for Windsor and the edge of Lake Huron to Barrie, Sudbury, Parry Sound, North Bay, Sault Ste. Maria and more, no religious services of any kind and more. Why? These are ridings held by the Progressive Conservative Party and his base. He got the message and backed down proving he is not consulting with his caucus, the representatives of the people but to unelected bureaucrats and doctor experts who only say what "they put in front of (them)."

So, shall we praise Caesar? No, not at all. He is wrong on the lockdowns for multiple reasons and he has failed to do those things which would have addressed the real problems which I will give in an upcoming post. Yet for now, as distasteful as it is, as much as I am angry at Ford, I must admit that I know what Brian Lilley knows. The alternatives are about as bad as you can imagine. A radical socialist party known as the NDP, a corrupt and devastated moderately less socialist Liberal party and a socialist radical Green. We are in a vice with four jaws squeezing us - bad, worse, worser and worst. 

So, let us be thankful that we have Doug Ford and not one of the others or we'd all be under a curfew. The media was lapping that idea up yesterday. Let's work to bring him back from the edge. The thing is, he is a likeable guy, its one of the reasons he won. He's the guy you'd like to have over for a beer. His problem is that because of that, he is no intellectual and he is being duped. He likes to portray himself as an ordinary guy and while he is wealthy in his own right (or his father's) he is pretty much that. But he has been compromised and possibly blackmailed or he is just not smart enough to consult others and to think this through. He is afraid of people dying from China Virus but not the deaths from the consequences of lockdowns. But then, which of our political leaders anywhere has not been? They've all signed on for this, even conservatives, which is really distressing. They drank the Kool-Aid long ago, many of them are compromised and potentially blackmailed by those who are seeking a massive push to eliminate the nation-state and impose a new world order of fascism.

To a tee, I can't think of many who have done it right. Maybe Taiwan, Maybe those in South Korea. But these are different societies, different cultures. Europe is a disaster especially England, France and Italy. In the provinces and states of Canada and the United States, there is a variant but my American friends, we have done much better on this than you there and you have respected freedoms more than we. This is perhaps because we are more pliant, we didn't en masse reject masks, we didn't have an election and its rallies and we didn't destroy our cities with riots. We are also thankful we did not have the monster Cuomo who deliberately murdered seniors due to his policies. Ford didn't do it deliberately only through ineptitude, at least we can say that. 

One more thing because we cannot, not mention and that is Cardinal Collins and the Ontario bishops. As noted directly below, Doug Ford has not banned religious services. He has reduced province wide to ten for the set time period. Every bishop, I expect, will now shut down whatever Masses are left after Christmas Day. Wrong. As hard as it to organise, proceed with the ten, effectively eight with the priest and server. Carry on. Suspend Holy Communion except by appointment, music only at one Sunday Mass, limit homily to five minutes and command every priest to offer five Masses daily. But they won't. There will be No Mass For You. As for going to court, it really is too late. Cardinal Collins and all the Bishops of Ontario have failed us. The time to go to court was in March. As reported a few days ago, Cardinal Collins asked the Premier to relent on the ten and return to the thirty-percent occupancy in grey zones. The Premier responded in the negative. 

Too little, too late, Your Eminence. Mediocrity in every way will be your legacy.

Ford has not banned religious services but there will still be No Mass for you!

In his announcement today putting the people of Ontario into a lockdown situation beginning at 12:01 A.M. December 26, 2020, Premier Doug Ford has not shut down religious services. 

But you know our bishops will.

Presentation Title (documentcloud.org)


What is the answer?

It's too late for court. Collins and the Bishops of Ontario should have done this in March. It would be laughed away.

Schedule public Mass to the numbers.

Suspend Holy Communion except by appointment (privately on tongue.

Limit homily to 3 to 5 minutes.

Music at one Sunday Mass only.

Every priest to offer five Masses.

Think outside the box!

ONTARIO POLITBURO GENERAL SECRETARY FORD FEELS THE HEAT, SHUTDOWN NOW AT MIDNIGHT ON ST. STEPHEN'S DAY, NOT CHRISTMAS EVE!

UPDATE: FORD POLITBURO LOCKDOWN DELAYED TO 12:01 A.M. EST ON ST. STEPHEN'S TO JANUARY 23, 2021 FOR SOUTHERN ONTARIO, THE NORTH TO JANUARY 9. ONLY "ESSENTIAL" BUSINESS AND WORK. CORRUPT MEDIA NOW SALIVATING THAT HE IS NOT CLOSING US DOWN ON CHRISTMAS EVE! CLAIMS BUSINESS INVENTORY AND FOOD WASTE IS THER REASON. SAD.

THIS IS A BLATANT ATTACK ON THE CHRISTIANITY. YOU HAVE DEPRIVED CATHOLICS OF EVEN HOLY COMMUNION ON CHRISTMAS DAY. 

YOU EVIL ROTTEN MONSTER. 

A BIGGER IDIOT I DO NOT KNOW.

NO VOTE FOR YOU!

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR IMMORTAL SOUL.



Tell us Doug. What sexual perversion is your thing because it is obvious your being blackmailed because nobody can be this stupid. Did George Soros and the rest of these evil monsters pay you off to promise you a role in their new world order?

I just can't write anymore right now.

AND YOU LET HIM DO IT TO US THOMAS COLLINS!


Enjoy eternity.

The soul on the realisation of its eternity.




Ontario Polituburo General-secretary Doug Ford investigated for family history of drug dealing. What other secrets are there in this blackmailed bumpkin's closet?

Ontario Premier Doug Ford was investigated by a once responsible media for his family's history of drug-dealing. The Globe and Mail stands behind their May 2013 story. They have not retracted it nor has he sued them for defamation. You can't sue for defamation if it's true As an aside, Lin Wood knows this especially and Chief Justice Roberts knows too. 

How much of this is out there? Who has buried this so that it just went away? Well, we've brought it back.

Globe investigation: The Ford family’s history with drug dealing - The Globe and Mail


What other secrets does the Premier have? Is he a sexual deviant? Was he on the Lolita Express to the island of Jeffery Epstein, who didn't kill himself. (Nota Bene: it is not now nor has it ever been nor will it ever be this writer's intention to commit suicide!) Who is blackmailing him, who has the goods on Dougie Ford? Or has he just been promised a seat at the table of the new world order to go along with this disgraceful action to wipe out independent business and the middle class? Has the lust for power - libido dominandi, totally taken him over, a total takeover by Satan himself? As a priest said to me last evening, "Lust is the only sin that cannot be satisfied. Gluttony can be satisfied, until you are hungry again, but lust is continuous, it does not stop." Lust for sex. Lust for money. Lust for power. Which is it Doug because you have been already judged and found wanting.

Someone must know something because it is obvious to me that no Conservative can be this stupid. He must be being blackmailed by those who want this communist shutdown and the elimination of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the inability of people to receive the sacraments notwithstanding Cowardinal Collins' requests. I know for a fact that some priests, pudgy, lazy, immuno-compromised, assembly theology heretics are not providing the sacraments and are cowering out of fear they will get the China Virus. Stinking cowards, all of them. 

So tell us Doug, what's the rest of the story?



DOUG FORD IS KILLING OFF OUR SENIORS AND CARDINAL COLLINS IS COMPLICIT

Doug Ford is killing off, murdering the senior citizens and the infirm in Ontario, his own stats prove it and Thomas  Cardinal Collins who has failed for nine months to stand up to him and denounce him, is complicit. As Ford will announce at 1:00 P.M. today, all of Ontario will go into a politburo diktat at 12:01 on December 24. No Mas or Communion Service For You! 

Look at the graph below. 

For those of us in Ontario, we will remember Doug Ford talking daily about putting an "iron ring" around our long-term care. His iron ring was really rusty chicken wire. The overwhelming deaths in the spring and cases deaths now are amongst seniors in long-term care. The data below proves it. But the rest of us need to be imprisoned for it.

Doug Ford is a liar and a coward. A stupid man. He is taking direction from a power mad Chief of Staff and medical "experts" who do not have faith in God or the Ontario people. They did this, they did not implement the necessary policies to protect the vulnerable and they are making the rest of us pay for it. 

I spoke to a priest last evening, three actually. He just did a small funeral Saturday for a 91 year old parishioner who passed from the China Virus. The staff would not let her family in for months. So who gave her the virus? 

These people, Doug Ford, his Chief of Staff Jamie Wallace, the Minister of Health, Christine Elliot and Dr. David Williams failed in their obligations and are now blaming us. Cardinal Collins is complicit. He failed to stand up to them in March and again in the last month. A coward who will be spat out and join the rest of them in their destiny for the betrayal of our weak and infirm and the literal imprisonment of the rest of us.

O Clavis

O KEY of David and sceptre of the House of Israel;
you open and no one can shut;
you shut and no one can open:
Come and lead the prisoners from the prison house,
those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.



"I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David; he shall open, and no one shall shut; he shall shut, and no one shall open." Isaiah 22:22
"His authority shall grow continually, and there shall be endless peace for the throne of David and his kingdom. He will establish and uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time onwards and for evermore." Isaiah 9:7
 "To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house." Isaiah 42:7.

It's the Fourth Sunday of Advent and

... unlike the clericalist Thomas Cardinal Collins, his clericalist Auxiliaries John Boissonneau, Vincent Nguyen, Robert Kasun and soon to be bishop, Ivan Camilleri who all will worship God and receive the Holy Eucharist today, there is still 



Now, consider this article from Maike Hickson which describes the desolation of the High Altar at St. Peter's Basilica since the blasphemous worship of the Amazonian demon goddess by Bergoglio himself and placed on this same altar with no Mass there since. This was the same as enthroning the blasphemous naked image with the red protruding belly. Msgr. Marini, the Master of Ceremonies betrayed God, he should have dropped it rather than follow Bergoglio's instruction and placing it on the altar where, even in the Novus Ordo, no altar decoration is permitted. (Candles and a crucifix can be placed on the altar, in the EF, only on the gradine/shelf.) Make no mistake, No Mass in Toronto today unjustly determined by Collins has a cause.

A coincidence between that event and No Mass For You? Methinks, not. Nor does Father Z.

"Here a summary of the events since last year's Amazon Synod: First the Pope had blessed a sacrifice that had been offered to a false god, and then he placed it on the very altar on which he usually offers the Son of God to God the Father. In the 2020 Yearbook, he declines to be called “Vicar of Christ.” The coronacrisis breaks out, which is then being used by government authorities to close down churches and restrict Mass attendance, along with the Pope's collaboration and approval. Then the Pope stops altogether celebrating Mass on that very same Papal Altar on which he had earlier placed the Pachamama bowl. His Christmas Vigil Mass is not even a midnight Mass, but will take place at 7.30 p.m., due to the existing curfew rules in Italy (even though the Vatican is its own city-state and the Pope is its head). The result of these papal acts are that now in many places in the whole world the Christmas Midnight Mass, commemorating the birth of the Christ-Child, has been cancelled. One may ask whether there is a connection between all of these events: that is to say, from the Pachamama bowl on the Papal Altar to the cancellation of the Christmas Midnight Masses in many parts of the world."
