Bishop Michael Power - Cardinal Thomas Collins - two bishops of Toronto, Irish - that is where the similarity ends!

Though the non-church going and presumably lapsed-Anglican ignoramus and Premier of Ontario, Douglas Ford has reduced capacity of all places of worship to ten the Cardinal Archbishop of Toronto one upped him. "Oh yeah? I'll just cancel public Mass, I'll show ya whose Boss, so there!"

The first bishop of Toronto had something much worse than China virus to deal with. There are some comparisons between Michael Power and Thomas Collins. Two men, Irish Catholics and both Bishops of Toronto. 

One had a courage of a lion and one did not.

You decide which one.

"In Toronto, Peel and everywhere that churches have prohibited public Mass, what would Bishop Power say? How would he lead during the current crisis? Would he pour himself out in leadership and service to an increasingly dispirited flock or would he surpass the ten-person government mandate and take away the public celebration of the Holy Sacrifice, removing public, in-person worship from Catholics badly in need of hope, badly in need of Christ?"

McDermott  writes that "In a Catholic Register staff editorial from June 8, 2017, Cardinal Thomas Collins lauded Bishop Power’s “sacrifice and service.” According to the editorial, Bishop Power assuaged the sick and dying with “the experience of Heaven to those who were suffering that hell.”

Thomas Collins has rather brought to his people the experience of hell when they desire heaven on earth.

This is what comes from the Synodal Way. When the Pope & Vatican spoke with one voice every prelate obeyed & we, the laity, also. Now every Diocese if different & that leads to great discontent amongst priests & laity alike. The Church as a whole should have been ready for times like these & make a stand for Christ. That would send shivers down the spines of these tyrants, give good leadership to other Christians & make restrictions of the kind we've had since Holy Week unheard of.
