It's the Fourth Sunday After Easter and the Feast of St. Athanasius and in Cardinal Collins' Archdiocese of Toronto, there is

 

A blessed Eastertide to the abandoned flock of Our Lord Jesus Christ dwelling in the Archdiocese of Toronto and much of the Province of Ontario without Holy Mass under the fascist diktats of Premier Doug Ford of the Ontario Politburo - a bigger ignoramus is unknown to this writer. Yet, this is not the case in all of Ontario. No. not all. You see the god of covid is smart, very smart and has not discovered the Diocese of St. Catharines where Holy Mass continues under the provincial order or in parking lots by creative, faithful and courageous priests. Not here though. Not here in the Archdiocese of Toronto where rather than offer you Holy Mass you get Knights of Columbus and York Regional Police preventing you from gathering to pray the rosary. Ford may have reduced it to ten people, Collins reduced it to zero.

Have you got it yet? You and I have been abandoned by this man pictured above and his ilk. False shepherds! Hirelings! Useful idiots!

St. Athanasius lived at the time of the Arian heresy. Today, we live in a time of the Modernist heresy, the Bergoglian heresies and the god of covid heresy. How different is our time from the Saint's? Hear his words today:

“May God console you! ...What saddens you ...is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises─but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle-the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith? Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray. Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.”

In the traditional Missal, the Offertory today is Jubilate Deo. If the Ordinary Form used the Proper of the Mass and the Gregorian chants, the Antiphon would also appear, though not quite in the same order. It comes along twice in the year, on the Third Sunday After Epiphany and this day. I will miss singing it today, in church, at least. At least in the mind of this Cantor, there is no more joyous chant to sing. The text itself is quite short, only two sentences. The melismas of this composition are outstanding, glorious and building to a crescendo that is almost an ecstasy. Incredibly, it becomes quiet, almost mystical when the Psalmist writes to "come and hear." 

Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; sing a psalm to the glory of His name. Come and hear, all you who fear God, the great things the Lord has done for me, alleluia!

My friends. For those of you who can go to Mass today, pray for all of us who have been locked out of our churches. Not by the State, for in Ontario, Premier Doug Ford has limited occupancy to ten persons, but by our cardinals and bishops who have determined that there will be no Mass for you because it is "just not worth it" for ten. It's just not worth saving anyone from RMS Titanic because there were not enough lifeboats for all. That is how the twisted mind of Collins and his ilk think, it's just not worth it, it's just not fair. For those who cannot, watching the Mass on television or your computer screen may be a devotion but it is not Mass. It would be better to do this:

1.    Pray Matins and Lauds this morning from here according to Divino Affaltu Divinum Officium Matutinum

2.    Pray the text of the Mass complied daily by this good Deacon. TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS PROPERS IN ENGLISH: FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER EASTER; SAINT ATHANASIUS (373 A.D.) Bishop and Doctor of the Church (tridentine-mass.blogspot.com)

These are both, work. Watching on your screen is not. Put in the work. Defy these monsters who have shut you out of the church, who send effete Knights of Columbus to stop you from praying the rosary and have the State jackboots there to arrest you as did "Msgr." Gregory Ace and Neil MacCarthy doing the bidding of Collins

A shameful legacy of a tyrant to his priests, a bully to his sheep and in truth, a coward.

Since I can and do attend the Holy Sacrifice (and maskless) every day, I do pray for those who are denied this and other sacraments.
