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.

Vox I have email this bishop on a variety of issues many times, Not once have I had the courtesy of a reply. It is absolutely useless. THEY DON’T CARE!
The only correspondence I have ever received from the diocese of Hamilton is a request for money for their capital campaign. Pray pay and obey is their motto BUT NO MORE for this guy.

Translation: "The decision to close our churches and suspend public celebrations of the Mass has been a celebration of the wicked spirits, atheists, and all the apostates in the Diocese. While the joy and gladness of our ability to close the celebration of the Eucharist remains profound, some of the responses to this closure - in addition to the demands of Bergoglio of Rome - betray a fundamental lack of understanding not only of why this great apostasy is being made, but also the Pachamama example we must follow in so doing."

Luciano,

Toronto is no different. They never respond. They laugh at us. They won't laugh much longer.

We have only a little longer to suffer under these Age of Aquarius bishops before they die off, along with their embrace of Modernism. They took the government's money and are now sycophants for the State.

Bishop Crosby advocates for the medical device AKA the "vaccine" as a way back to opening the churches. This is modernist delusion. We pray for Pope Francis and Bishop Crosby.
