Statue of Our Lady beheaded at Toronto's Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Church

In the early hours of Sunday morning, the swarthy demon beheaded a statue of the Blessed Mother at our Toronto Maronite Church named in Her honour - Our Lady of Lebanon. The perpetrator is described as 5'11" to 6'1", clean-shaven with a thin build and long, dark, swept-back hair. He was wearing a black t-shirt with a large white design on the front, a thin red vest, beige shorts and Birckenstock-style sandals.

Sacrilege!

My family assisted greatly in the establishment of this parish. Family was buried from here.

Can the Lebanese never find peace?

No worries, we forgive him. We always do. If he is identified (haha), there will be admonitions to love our enemies to the point of our ceasing to exist. At some point, the forgiveness show cheapens everything. It devalues religious buildings, faith, icons, statuary, even people. Pacifism is a disorder, and Christians need a cure. We have been encouraged to be Buddhists for so long, by our own churchmen, we're confused. I hope he is identified, apprehended, and charged to the fullest extent of the law, assuming you can find someone to prosecute that is.
Some groups only respect power and nothing else. To be passive is to invite attack. You must show them you will defend yourself.
Jesus, give us the victory over these hateful people, and open our eyes, amen.

The church at Queen Street 1515, Toronto was built by Anglicans and named it Church of Epiphany. They celebrated their liturgy here for the last time on Palm Sunday 1983 [March 27]. On this day, the Church welcomes the King of Israel. The Anglicans sold their temple to Catholics. "June 11, 1983 marks the special Dedication day and the birth date of Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Catholic Parish in Toronto." I don't know what feast the Maronites had that day, but I do know that Roman Catholics had the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (the first Saturday after the octave of Corpus Christi). June 11 is also the commemoration of Saint Barnabas the Apostle. This is the background that will enable us to explain the incident of August 30, 2020.
The man in the photo by the surveillance camera looks like an ordinary guy. Other sources say that he took the head of the Holy Madonna with him. This is a very important detail, because whoever carries the head of Our Lady is actually carrying the head of the Church, because everything that can be said about the Blessed Virgin, the same can be said about the Church. Yes, but this guy has his own head on his neck, only that in this scene (carrying the Virgin's head) as a man he is the head of this Woman. This event signifies that this stranger is the antitype of the visible head of the Church. Who is this? This is the great prophet who will renew everything himself! This is Paraclete, the second Comforter promised by the Lord Jesus! Why did this spectacular sign appear in the Maronite parish?
Because "Our God will come from Lebanon; he shall be as brilliant as the sun." [PSALMODY Antiphon 1, Saturday, 3rd Advent Week]. Moreover, the Maronites dedicated their parish and church on June 11, the day of the commemoration of Saint Barnabas. In the Holy Scriptures, Barnabas is also called the Son of Consolation and therefore the perfect antitype of Paraclete because he has the dignity of an Apostle, i.e. that is, sent by the Lord Jesus himself. He will be bright as the sun, because Paraclete is also the Fire that Jesus wanted to throw on the earth.
P.S.
Our Lady of Lebanon is not a victim in this event, but a winner. She always wins, and we will soon see her final global triumph.

September 1, feast of Mamma Schiavona, Montevergine, Italy
