Dear FSSP Father - a conversation from the combox

From the combox following this post:

Today I spoke with an FSSP priest about Summorum Pontificum and referred to this post.

He said "It's not Christian to attack episcopate in such a way, it's very demonic. Jesus Christ would never do that, he even died on the cross in full submission to his enemies."

I didn't want to make an argument with him. But what would be your response?

Friend,

I would respond in this way. Feel free to print it out and hand it to the good father along with my email address; voxcantoris@rogers.com

Father, as a priest of the Fraternity of St. Peter, you are compromised. So is your whole Fraternity. You have no bishop, in fact, as so well reported here: 
French bishop tells faithful protesting departure of FSSP from their diocese that their priests must concelebrate the Novus Ordo | News | LifeSite (lifesitenews.com) you are slaves to the same men who hate you and what you stand for. On one hand, you allegedly carry the doctrine and on the other, you admonish those faithful who suffer and are not as gentle and eloquent as you would wish them to be in the battle. In fact, I would say that you're not even in the battle. I would say that you are more enamoured with smells and bells and are all lace and no grace than engaging in battle to save souls or restore the Church. You see Father, as long as you stick to celebrating the traditional Mass and as long as it doesn't mean anything you're all good. You see, it’s not the Mass they hate, it's what it represents. That is evident in that linked article on the Dijon situation.

Father, as for calling me "demonic" you're being very judgemental and display a complete lack of charity and care for the smelly sheep who have been abused by an evil stepfather.

As for the holy episcopate which you accuse me of demonically insulting in an un-Christian manner, what did our Lord Jesus say to the episcopate of his day? "Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men's bones, and of all filthiness." And then we have this, "You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."

As for demonic, Father, shall we talk of the savage beatings and bruising by your Basilian confreres this writer as a 13-year-old boy? 

Shall we speak of the priest academic who sodomized one known to me and tried to groom him into a life of sodomy? How many millions of others were there?

What shall we say, dear Father, of the financial corruption and perverts and drug-fueled orgies in the Vatican? Do we dare speak of the cover-up by the criminals in the Church that abused so many?

Shall we speak dear Father of the Church in Canada that took government money to take children from their families against the teachings of the Church and betrayed them with abusive and perverted priests who raped many in our sad history of indigenous residential schools?

Shall we speak of our Bishops who even now, at least here in Canada, take abused taxpayer's money from the Government of Canada in exchange for shutting down our churches and sacraments?

Dear Father, I could go on and on to even now how these dear holy episcopal leaders cannot even let the children have the crumbs of tradition from the Master's Table.

So Father, why did you become a priest and when did you lose your cojones? When did you become brainwashed in a corrupt ultramontane view of the papacy, the priest as all-holy, untouchable and elevated on a pedestal along with a maniacal obedience to evil? 

You covered it up Father, You still cover it up. You knew. You all knew. You did nothing! Worse? YOU STILL DO NOTHING!

You see Father, all of the above is because of priests such as you as articulated in the previous sentence
.

One more thing, Father FSSP, you are "But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep." 


THE ENEMIES OF SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM WANT WAR - Paix Liturgique. AND THEY WILL GET IT! - Vox Cantoris

A warning to Bergoglio, Parolin, Ouellette, Roche and the rest of these effetes, hirelings and Christ-hating demonic episcopal scum. If you want war, you will get war. 

This is not 1969. This is not even 1965. We are not our parents.

Forewarned is forearmed!

Our 805 letter published on June 28, 2021 

THE ENEMIES OF SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM WANT WAR

"You are going to have a new Motu proprio in the coming days or weeks," Bishop Minnerath, Archbishop of Dijon, told the faithful of the traditional Mass who came to demonstrate their displeasure in front of the bishopric on June 26. But even before the publication of this text, if it is well published, the testimonies on the intentions of the enemies of the previous motu proprio, that of Benedict XVI multiply: 

Thus, Cardinal Parolin, Secretary of State, said before a group of cardinals: "We must put an end to this Mass forever!" Bishop Roche, the new Prefect of the Congregation of Divine Worship, explained with a laugh to seminary officials in Rome and members of the Curia, all English-speaking: "Summorum Pontificum is practically dead! We will give power back to the bishops on this point, but especially not to the conservative bishops." 

It should also be noted that Bishop Minnerath, who opened hostilities against the traditional community of Dijon, is a member of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and therefore finds himself every month in Rome, immersed in the circles of the Curia that prepared the offensive against Summorum Pontificum. 

Benedict XVI's motu proprio Summorum Pontificum of 2007 was a compromise that ingeniously established a coexistence between the Mass of Paul VI and the Tridentine Mass, in other words, it is true, between water and fire. The fact remains that the peace achieved has been widely acclaimed by the Christian people, whether or not they attend the old Mass, as all our surveys have shown. 

It is known, since the Pope spoke about it at the Conference of Bishops of Italy on Pentecost Monday, that the new text will reduce the possibility of diocesan priests to celebrate traditional Mass. In addition, measures should be taken to lead the priests of the Ecclesia Dei institutes to also celebrate the new Mass and to bring both this new Mass and the conciliar magisterium into the training given in the seminaries of these communities. 

Proponents of liturgical reform have become aware of the importance of the traditional world 

The exasperation, which animates the supporters of liturgical reform in the face of the opposition they have met from the beginning, has been revived with the arrival of Pope Francis. It continues to grow as time passes and the pontificate logically moves towards its completion: we must put an end as soon as possible to this opposition to the Council to which Pope Benedict XVI had given a space of liturgical freedom. 

The offensive was led by a pressure group in the Curia and among the Italian bishops who worked to make roman decision-makers understand that the two masses in attendance, the traditional mass and the new mass, represented two incompatible doctrinal states: that of Vatican II and that of before Vatican II. The great idea of Andrea Grillo, professor of liturgy at the Roman University of St. Anselm, is that Summorum Pontificum has introduced an aberrant state of "liturgical exception", which puts the traditional liturgy and the new liturgy on an equal footing, which is monstrous and unbearable*. 

In addition, these hardline conciliars have come to understand that the traditional world, with its priests, its faithful, its works, its schools, which they affected to consider as marginal and despicable, represents in reality a significant weight, especially as the conciliar world for its part is becoming exhausted and is increasingly fading. 

Hence this desire to bring the Summorum Pontificum galaxy into the common law. Undoubtedly what concerns the traditional liturgy and its specialized actors, the priests of the Ecclesia Dei communities, will now be the domain of competence of the Congregation for Divine Worship, which is by its function in charge of the new liturgy. The extraordinary form will therefore be subordinate to the ordinary law of the ordinary form. This could be very expensive, for example, if the authorization to celebrate in extraordinary form were conditional on participation at regular intervals in the new liturgy, or on the use of the calendar of the ordinary form, or the new lectionary. All at the discretion of the diocesan bishops, to whom the management of this "tolerance" would be entrusted, the Congregation for Divine Worship always giving them reason against the priests, the faithful and the Ecclesia Dei communities. The conservative bishops, as Bishop Roche implies, were under surveillance. 

Doves and falcons 

However, the present pontificate, that of a pope who is already 84 years old, seems to be entering a difficult phase. Opposition to his liberal line has always been very strong among conservatives and traditionalists. But in addition, he is now meeting with discontent from a number of those who have supported him until now. 

More than a grumbling, a declared hostility. The historian Alberto Melloni, director of the John XXIII Foundation, also known as the Bologna School, is a major intellectual in progressive Italian Catholicism. On June 14, in the largest left-wing daily, La Repubblica, to which he regularly gives articles, he published a solemn warning to the Pope entitled "Il giugno neo della Chiesa", The Black June of the Church (an allusion to what left-wing historians call "The Black Week of the Council", this week when the most serious crisis took place in the course of Vatican II). Melloni lists Francis' bad practices against figures who were nevertheless close to him, of whom he made enemies: the way in which he refused by a letter made public the resignation of German Cardinal Marx; the confirmation of the dismissal of Enzo Bianchi, Melloni's great friend, because of "serious problems in the exercise of authority" from the ultra-ecumenical monastery of Bose; the visit of a commissioner, ordered against the Congregation for the Clergy after the resignation of Cardinal Stella, 80, one of the pillars of the Bergoglian pontificate; the economic control launched against the services of the Vicariate of Rome of Cardinal De Donatis; the search launched to feed the charges deemed too weak against Cardinal Becciu, accused of economic embezzlement in London when he was Deputy of the Secretary of State. Melloni concludes: either Francis is surrounded by advisers who are bullies, or he has remained the authoritarianist he was when he led the Society of Jesus in Argentina. Let the Pope beware: "He is preparing for a storm!" 

Part of the "left" is therefore seeking to free itself from a chaotic mode of government. It is not surprising, therefore, that some prelates, who are not very friendly to the ancient liturgy, give Francis advice of caution: this is really not the time to open a new liturgical war today. They join Cardinal Ladaria, "on the right", who has put the brakes on this issue. 

In doing so, these doves stand out from the hawks of the Secretary of State and the Congregation of Divine Worship. The hawks seem to prevail: "We must end this Mass forever!" (Cardinal Parolin); "Summorum Pontificum is practically dead!" (Bishop Roche). 

The front of refusal is preparing 

A front of refusal is being prepared, as predicted by the noise raised by the revelation of the fiddling of Summorum Pontificum,and relayed by the great Italian press. Are we heading towards a return to the situation of the 70s, when the new missal of Paul VI was promulgated? With this difference that the Roman institution and the national episcopate are today infinitely weaker. 

In Dijon the priests of the diocese and the faithful who still attend the churches do not understand the policy of the archbishop, illegible for them. This is obviously what the reaction of the entire Christian people will be, with the exception of the most progressive areas: misunderstanding. Why reopen old wounds? Why advocate ecumenism ad extra,but refuse it ad intra? Why show so little mercy? 

And this in a context of dramatic reduction of Catholicism. Andrea Riccardi, main character of the Community of Sant'Egidio, who is the complete opposite of a conservative, in a recent book, where he considers the fire of Notre-Dame de Paris as a parable, deals with the announced social disappearance of the Church: La Chiesa brucia. Crise e futuro del cristianesimo (Tempi nuovi, 2021), The Church burns. Crisis and future of Christianity. He analyses country by country, in Europe, the collapse of Catholicism. In the conclusion, he of course shows an obligatory hope on the theme "the crisis is not decline", but he has previously launched, he too, launched a number of small murderous sentences: "many Catholics have gone from enthusiasm for Bergoglio to disillusionment", "the solution will not come from a reform". And then also this observation: "Traditionalism is a reality of some importance in the Church, both in the organization and in the means". 

Catholics attached to the traditional Mass are promised extermination: "We must put an end to this Mass forever!" (Cardinal Parolin); "Summorum Pontificum is practically dead!" (Bishop Roche). Traditional Catholics will experience difficult times if Roman benevolence, more or less followed by episcopal benevolence, is torn apart. But do we believe that they will let themselves be done? It may well be that, in the trial of strength that is being prepared, it is the guardians of the liturgy of the Council who have the most to lose.

One more 15% Sunday in Ordinary Time. Next week, 25% - will that be the top-out of those who will come back to Mass?


On this upcoming Wednesday, the draconian, fascist restrictions on life by Doug Ford, an alleged conservative, will be modified. Church attendance will grow magically from 15% to 25% as well as one's ability to shop for a pool noodle. Not a single statement from Tom Collins about the absurdity of this. He does the government's bidding now and takes millions of tax dollars for it just as his predecessors took government money for taking native children from their parents into boarding schools. At the same time, he cancels a Toronto Monsignor for daring to say that some good was found in the residential school system - lest I state again, a Government of Canada policy of indigenous assimilation.

Since November, this writer has weekly lambasted this hireling for betraying us. The monsignor he cancelled was on the "A-team."  If Cardinal Woke would throw this priest under the bus, could you imagine what he would do to those not so favoured? Is it any wonder that none dare to challenge him?  

Next Sunday our churches will move to 25% capacity, the next phase is less clear as Ford has not announced capacity limits. Will it be 50%? It certainly won't be 100% - they are having too much fun at this and Thomas Collins has displayed clearly for all of us what a hireling he is - doing the government's bidding and betraying John and Mary Catholic. The writing is on the wall and it will be there for all to see. The Collins legacy will be closed parishes and a politically-controlled church in Toronto. 

A sad legacy.

Merciful Redeemer Parish in Mississauga vandalised - Holy Name of Jesus blasphemed!

CAUTION; ARTICLE CONTAINS OFFENSIVE PHOTOGRAPHS

Toronto's Cardinal Collins throws faithful Monsignor under the Cancel Culture Bus! UPDATED - COLLINS CANCELS MONSIGNOR!

CANCELLED! 

Forced to resign?

Monsignor Owen Keenan is the Pastor of Merciful Redeemer Parish in Mississauga, west of Toronto. I know Monsignor Keenan. We are not close friends, but he did bring me in as Cantor at his first parish, St. John the Evangelist. He was sent to Rome by Collins to study Canon Law and we kept in touch then and somewhat since. He is a good man and solid in the faith. I remember him telling me once about this blog and that I should always remember that, "prudence is the mother of all virtues."  

In a homily at a Mass, allegedly attended by the Mayor of Mississauga who caused a fuss, who threw him under the Facebook Train, Monsignor said, "Two-thirds of the country is blaming the church, which we love, for the tragedies that occurred there. (the residential schools) Now I presume that the same number would thank the church for the good that was done in those schools but of course, that  question was never asked and in fact, we are not allowed to even say that good was done in those schools.”

Is Monsignor correct? Yes, and good for him for saying it. Is prudence still, "the mother of all virtues." Yes, and timing is everything and so is knowing your audience. If Monsignor failed anywhere, it was there. That’s it. 

On the same day that Father Marco Testa writes in Catholic Insight on the matter of cancelling priests, Thomas Cardinal Collins summoned Monsignor to a Zoom meeting to hang him from the yardarm, lest he be forced to cancel him or send him off to Southdown for re-education adding to a long and growing list of cancelled Toronto priests, for all the wrong reasons.

Below is the statement wherein Monsignor must grovel to the Cardinal and the vultures in the media and the protestors outside the parish last evening. Collins is no better than those of a century ago. Now, as then, Church leaders in Canada took government largess to undermine the lives and rights of the faithful. Then, we went along with government policy and tore children away from their families. today, we tear the sacraments away from the people.

If Monsignor Owen Keenan can be so betrayed and unsupported and thrown under the culture wars Marxist bus by Collins, can you imagine what it is like for others who do not kowtow to this, not so latent, tyrant?  

Careful Fathers, Collins will "shut you down."

Yes, he will. 

Quite the legacy.

Statements on Last Weekend's Homily at Merciful Redeemer Parish in Mississauga

Posted : Jun-24-2021 

A number of people have reached out to the archdiocese to express their concern over a homily delivered at Merciful Redeemer Parish in Mississauga, Ont., on the weekend of June 19/20. 

We apologize to anyone who was offended by the remarks of Msgr. Owen Keenan, of Merciful Redeemer Parish. 

Below is a statement from Msgr. Keenan, followed by a statement the Archdiocese of Toronto. 

I would like to communicate to the faithful and all those who have expressed concerns about my homily the weekend of 19/20 June 2021. I want to acknowledge the pain and anger which has been magnified as the result of a portion of my remarks being circulated in social media and elsewhere. I apologize sincerely for any hurt I have caused and pledge to do better, especially at a time when there is a national conversation underway regarding residential schools. 

I am deeply sorry, embarrassed, ashamed and shocked at the revelations of abuse, destruction and harm done in Residential Schools across this country. As a Catholic and a Priest, I in no way condone the Residential School System, I regret deeply that these places existed, and I lament the harm that was caused. If and when I get a chance to meet survivors, I will seek their forgiveness. It pains me enormously to see the flags of my country, which I love, to be flying at half-staff in mourning because of something done by members of my Church, which I also love. 

I am, in my own limited way, committed to advancing the cause of Truth and Reconciliation with our Indigenous Brothers and Sisters and to listen and learn more about the pain and suffering experienced by so many. 

I am sorry for any hurt I have caused. I ask for your pardon, understanding and prayers. 

Respectfully yours,

Msgr Owen Keenan 

 

Statement from the Archdiocese of Toronto (June 23, 2021) regarding recent remarks from Msgr. Owen Keenan 

We are aware of remarks made in a homily by Msgr. Owen Keenan on the weekend of June 19/20, 2021, that have upset and angered many in the community. Earlier this month, Msgr. Keenan joined churches throughout the archdiocese in offering apologies, prayers and a desire to journey together on a path to reconciliation in the midst of the national conversation on residential schools. He reiterated the need for an apology in his remarks this past weekend. 

The archdiocese has been in contact with Msgr. Keenan to convey the deep pain and anger felt by those hurt by his words. Msgr. Keenan has pledged to fully educate himself, with the appropriate support, to gain a more wholesome understanding of the full history of residential schools and their impact in our country. We apologize to anyone who was offended by his remarks. 

As previously stated by Cardinal Collins, “We all seek the truth and the recent discovery in Kamloops provides yet another opportunity for us to learn more about this dark chapter in our history and the painful journey experienced by so many of our Indigenous brothers and sisters.”

In Toronto it's 15% Sunday in Ordinary Time - Recalling a time when Collins fullfiled his word, "I will shut you down!

All quiet on the Cardinal Collins front. He seems quite satisfied with himself having convinced Ontario Premier Doug Ford to classify religious services at the same level of importance as shopping for a pool noodle. Yes, friends, Collins has betrayed and abandoned us. The Church in Canada, as with the Residential Schools, has sided with evil Canadian governments for money rather than the little people.

During the draconian shutdowns, many priests cowered in their rectories, no doubt worried about their own "compromised immune systems." Not all did, though. Many did reach out to their flocks by phone, by email, by caring and did administer the sacraments and did so because it was what they were called to do by Our Lord in spite of the bully and tyrant who told them all in a webinar, "I will shut you down." God reward them all.

In 2010, Collins did shut down a parish - a growing community. It was the Toronto Apostolate of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. They arrived in 2007 and took over an indult community and quickly started to grow it. They turned the Sunday, quiet Low Mass to a full sung Missa Cantata. They were treated badly. This writer was the Schola Master and Choir Director. Having been promised their own parish it was finally granted and three days later, cancelled. The enemies had heard of it and had enough - they ganged up on Collins and demanded he reverse his decision which he has often done after revolt and the Director of Communications spun the scandal that it was the FSSP priest's fault. "He released the information," said Neil MacCarthy to this writer. "Really Neil? Then how did it get into the Archdiocesan Update and on the web page? Is Father V your Webmaster?" The parish was to be Canadian Martyrs whose community would have been merged with St. Brigid Parish. Two months later, Collins banned Holy Communion on the tongue due to the last China Virus, H1N1. In the bulletin, Father V wrote, "At this Mass in accord with the laws of the Universal Church, Holy Communion is only received on the tongue." He defied the Cardinal and a few months later, Collins made sure that Father V and the Superior General of the FSSP knew it. 

He shut them down.

The result of this is that today, as for the last year, the famous Toronto Oratory will provide holy communion on the hand only at the traditional Latin Masses.

Yet, after his edict, this writer attended the funeral Mass of Msgr. T. Barrett Armstrong of St. Michael's Choir School. On the left in line, I went to the Deacon for Holy C0mmunion and abiding Collins' edict, received in the hand. On my right was the Cardinal who gave Holy Communion to people on the tongue. Do as I say and not as I do is not good leadership.

In Markham, northwest of Toronto, this privately-owned Cathedral of the Transfiguration which can hold 1000 will be filled to the dictated limit and 300 or so at two Masses will attend the Holy Mass. More than the Cardinal will have in his own Cathedral. 

The post-CCP Virus Church in Toronto is going into dark days and well deserved

Quite the legacy.

The Sunset of a Papacy?

The most repugnant papacy in half a millenia. A papacy of heresy, confusion, insult, betrayal, cover-up, pervert empowerment and corruption. 

As the psalmist wrote: "May his days be few and another his bishopric take."

And may he repent for all the disgusting and brutish actions or suffer the consequences.

"Medical idiocy of the most grotesque degree!"

Sunday Mass returns to St. Michael's Cathedral in Toronto

This is the 15% combined with "social distancing." Why not every second instead of every third pew? If everyone is wearing a mask, how can the CCP virus get out of one's mouth and nose? Don't they work? Are there entry ports to lungs on the back of one's head?

Your Eminence, please explain how this is "common sense?" 

The fact is, this is the future of the Church in Toronto thanks to the Ford/Collins tag-team.

It's Sunday once again and the most church attendance will not be at the Cathedral of St. Michael but somewhere else because for most non-essential Catholics

There is, in fact, 

 
Ontario Premier Ford has declared that attending church is as essential as buying pool noodles - non-essential retail. The blame for this lay at the door of the man pictured above. Ford reduced church attendance to ten persons; Collins cancelled the public Mass and would let nobody attend other than at a contrived Communion service. He had his Mass you did not. What clericalism! Collins thinks this is a victory and thanked the Premier for his munificence.

As churches "fill" to the maximum of 15% per Mass I thought it might be fun to show you where the largest attendance will be today and what form of the Holy Mass it will be and offered by which group of priests.

On Aldgate Avenue in Toronto's south Etobicoke community, there is a former Baptist church long ago purchased and owned by the Society of St. Pius X known as the Church of the Transfiguration. The priests serve the faithful in Toronto, Orillia, Sudbury and St. Catharines from St. Michael's Priory and a few years ago, began a school in New Hamburg, west of Kitchener where there is also now a church in town sold to them by the Lutherans. During the varied CCP Virus fascist lockdowns, it is important to note that these priests did everything imaginable working within the draconian orders to provide the faithful with the Mass, in person and the sacraments. Unlike the man pictured above they did not close their church. They did not refuse Holy Communion and they did not refuse Baptisms as some Ontario bishops went so far as to do. These priests did not abandon the faithful. There is a fundraiser for a new church in Toronto worthy of support at this link.

Northwest of Toronto, in Markham, is a massive church and privately-owned. It is on the old farm of Canadian mining magnate, Stephen Roman. Roman had a vision - to build a cathedral for his Slovak-Byzantine Rite Catholic community surrounded by houses and shops recalling his village in Slovenia. In 1984, Pope John Paul II, whilst on a trip to Canada, blessed the bells and cornerstone of the already constructed walls and roof but yet, unfinished cathedral. Once able to be occupied the church was consecrated by the Slovak bishop. For complex reasons, the bishop later left in a dispute with Roman's heirs. Fast forward to 2021. Helen Roman-Barber heads the foundation which owns the church and has made it available to other Catholics. Jesus the King Melkite Church is there due to a fire at its home a number of years ago.

The Church of the Transfiguration on Aldgate normally has three Masses on Sunday, the third being at 5:00 P.M. It seats about 120 under normal circumstances with overflow in the hall. Due to demand and attendance restrictions, that Mass at 5:00 has been replaced now by two, one at 4:00 P.M. and one at 6.00 P.M. -- but not at the Church of the Transfiguration on Aldgate but at the Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Markham. Occupancy is at least, if not more than St. Michael's Cathedral, normally around 1,000.

How fitting, after months of denial of the Mass and Sacraments to the faithful that more people will be able to attend the Mass today offered by the priests of the Society of St. Pius X than that of Cardinal Collins in his own Cathedral.

On the rumours of an attack on Summorum Pontificum and the battle cry from Archbishop Viganò

With all of the unconstitutional acts of Doug Ford and his toady, Thomas Cardinal Collins, there has been no attention paid by this writer to the matter of the substantial rumours that Bergoglio is about to take an action of some sort against Summorum Pontificum. I see many losing their minds over this, I too am disturbed by the prospect of another fight. If that fight comes, you can be assured that this writer will confront it here and in Toronto itself. 

In the meantime, I issue this warning to any priest or bishop who attempts to restrict our rights. This is not 1965, nor is it 1970 and we are not our parents nor our grandparents.

In the meantime, there is this:


Considerations
on the feared modification of the motu proprio
Summorum Pontificum

On the occasion of the Philosophy Symposium dedicated to the memory of Msgr. Antonio Livi which was held in Venice on May 30 (here), I tried to identify the elements that constantly recur throughout history in the work of deception of the Evil One. In my examination (here), I focused on the fraud of the pandemic, showing how the reasons given to justify illegitimate coercive measures and no less illegitimate limitations of natural freedoms were in reality prophasis, that is, pretexts: ostensible reasons that are actually intended to conceal a malicious intent and a criminal design. The publication of Anthony Fauci’s emails (here) and the impossibility of censoring the ever more numerous voices of dissent with respect to the mainstream narrative have confirmed my analysis and allow us to hope for a blatant defeat of the supporters of the Great Reset. 

In that address, you may recall, I dwelt on that fact that the Second Vatican Council was also in a certain way a Great Reset for the ecclesial body, like other historical events planned and designed in order to revolutionize the social body. Also in this case, the excuses given to legitimize liturgical reform, ecumenism, and the parliamentarization of the authority of the Sacred Pastors were not founded on good faith but on deceit and lies, in such a way so as to make us believe that we were renouncing things that were unquestionably good – the Apostolic Mass, the uniqueness of the Church as the means of salvation, the immutability of the Magisterium and the Authority of the Hierarchy – for the sake of a higher good. But as we know, not only did this higher good not come about (nor could it have), but in fact the true intent of the Council manifested itself in all its disruptive subversive value: churches were emptied, seminaries deserted, convents abandoned, authority discredited and perverted into tyranny for the sake of the wicked Pastors or rendered ineffective for the good ones. And we also know that the purpose of this reset, this devastating revolution, was from the very beginning iniquitous and malicious, despite being clothed in noble intentions in order to convince the faithful and the clergy to obey. 

In 2007 Benedict XVI restored full citizenship to the venerable Tridentine liturgy, giving back to it the legitimacy that had been abusively denied it for fifty years. In his Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum he declared: 

It is therefore permitted to celebrate the Sacrifice of the Mass following the typical edition of the Roman Missal, which was promulgated by Blessed John XXIII in 1962 and never abrogated, as an extraordinary form of the Church’s Liturgy. […]  For such a celebration with either Missal, the priest needs no permission from the Apostolic See or from his own Ordinary (here). 

In reality the letter of the Motu Proprio and the implementing documents associated with it was never completely applied, and the cœtus fidelium who today celebrate in the Apostolic Rite continue to have to go to their Bishop to ask permission, essentially still abiding by the dictate of the Indult of the preceding Motu Proprio of John Paul II Ecclesia Dei. The just honor in which the traditional liturgy ought to be held was tempered by its being placed on an equal level with the liturgy of the post-conciliar reform, with the former being defined as the “extraordinary form” and the latter as the “ordinary form,” as if the Bride of the Lamb could have two voices – one fully Catholic and another equivocally ecumenical – with which to speak at one moment to the Divine Majesty and at the next to the assembly of the faithful. But there is also no doubt that the liberalization of the Tridentine Mass has done much good, nourishing the spirituality of millions of people and bringing many souls closer to the Faith who, in the sterility of the reformed rite, have not found any incentive either for conversion or even less for spiritual growth. 

Last year, displaying the typical behavior of the Innovators, the Holy See sent a questionnaire to the dioceses of the world in which they were asked to provide information about the implementation of Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio (here). The way in which the questions were written betrayed, once again, a second purpose, and the responses that were sent to Rome were supposed to create a basis of apparent legitimacy for imposing limitations on the Motu Proprio, if not its total abrogation. Certainly, if the author of Summorum Pontificum were still seated on the Throne, this questionnaire would have allowed the Pontiff to remind the Bishops that no priest needs to ask for permission to celebrate Mass in the ancient rite, nor may a priest be removed from ministry for doing so. But the real intention of those who wanted to consult the Ordinaries does not seem to reside in the salus animarum so much as in theological hatred against a rite that expresses with adamantine clarity the immutable Faith of the Holy Church, and which for this reason is alien to the conciliar ecclesiology, to its liturgy, and to the doctrine it presupposes and conveys. There is nothing more opposed to the so-called magisterium of Vatican II than the Tridentine liturgy: every prayer, every pericope – as liturgists would say – constitutes an affront to the delicate ears of the Innovators, every ceremony is an offense to their eyes. 

Simply tolerating that there are Catholics who want to drink from the sacred sources of that rite sounds like a defeat for them, one that is bearable only if it is limited to little groups of nostalgic elderly people or eccentric aesthetes. But if the “extraordinary form” – which is such in the ordinary sense of the word – becomes the norm for thousands of families, young people, and ordinary people who consciously choose it, then it becomes a stone of scandal and must be relentlessly opposed, limited, and abolished, since there must be no counter to the reformed liturgy, no alternative to the squalor of the conciliar rites – just as there can be no voice of dissent or argued refutation against the mainstream narrative, and just as effective treatments cannot be adopted in the face of the side effects of an experimental vaccine because they would demonstrate the latter’s uselessness. 

Nor can we be surprised: those who do not come from God are intolerant of everything that even remotely recalls an era in which the Catholic Church was governed by Catholic pastors and not by unfaithful pastors who abuse their authority; an era in which the Faith was preached in its integrity to the nations and not adulterated in order to please the world; an era in which those who hungered and thirsted for Truth were nourished and refreshed by a liturgy that was earthly in form but divine in substance. And if all that until yesterday was holy and good is now condemned and made an object of scorn, then allowing any trace of it to remain is inadmissible and constitutes an intolerable affront. Because the Tridentine Mass touches chords of the soul that the Montinian rite does not even begin to approach. 

Obviously, those who maneuver behind the scenes in the Vatican to eliminate the Catholic Mass see decades of work compromised in the Motu Proprio, they see a threat against the possession of so many souls whom today they keep subjugated and their tyrannical hold over the ecclesial body weakened. The same priests and bishops who, like me, have rediscovered that inestimable treasure of faith and spirituality – or which by the grace of God they have never abandoned, despite the ferocious persecution of the post-council – are not disposed to renounce it, having found in it the soul of their Priesthood and the nourishment of their supernatural life. And it is disturbing, as well as scandalous, that in the face of the good that the Tridentine Mass brings to the Church, there are those who want to ban it or limit its celebration on the basis of specious reasons. 

Yet, if we place ourselves in the shoes of the Innovators, we understand how perfectly consistent this is with their distorted vision of the Church, which for them is not a perfect society instituted by God for the salvation of souls but a human society in which an authority that is corrupt and subservient to the elite it favors steers the needs of the masses for vague spirituality, denying the purpose for which Our Lord willed it, and in which the good Pastors are constrained to inaction by bureaucratic shackles which they alone obey. This impasse, this juridical dead end, means that the abuse of authority can be imposed on subjects precisely in virtue of the fact that they recognize the voice of Christ in it, even in the face of evidence of the intrinsic wickedness of the orders that are given, the motivations that determine them, and the individuals who exercise it. On the other hand, even in the civil sphere, during the pandemic, many people obeyed absurd and harmful rules because they were imposed on them by doctors, virologists, and politicians who should have had the health and well-being of citizens at heart; and many did not want to believe, not even in the face of evidence of the criminal design, that they could directly intend the death or illness of millions of people. It is what social psychologists call cognitive dissonance, which induces individuals to take refuge in a comfortable niche of irrationality rather than recognize that they are victims of a colossal fraud and therefore having to react manfully. 

So let us not ask ourselves why – in the face of the multiplication of communities tied to the ancient liturgy, the flowering of vocations almost exclusively in the context of the Motu Proprio, and the increase in the frequent reception of the Sacraments and consistency of Christian life among those who follow it – there is a desire to wickedly trample an inalienable right and hinder the Apostolic Mass: the question is wrong and the answer would be misleading. 

Let us ask ourselves, rather, why notorious heretics and fornicators without morals would tolerate their errors and their deplorable way of life being placed into question by a minority of the faithful and clergy without protectors when they have the power to prevent it. At this point we understand well that this aversion cannot fail to be made explicit precisely by putting an end to the Motu Proprio, abusing a usurped and perverted authority. Even at the time of the Protestant pseudo-Reformation, tolerance towards certain liturgical customs rooted in the people was short-lived, because those devotions to the Virgin Mary, those hymns in Latin, those bells rung at the Elevation – which no longer existed – necessarily had to disappear, since they expressed a Faith that Luther’s followers had denied. And it would be absurd to hope that there could be a peaceful coexistence between the Novus and Vetus Ordo, as well as between the Catholic Mass and the Lutheran Lord’s Supper, given the ontological incompatibility between them. On closer inspection, at least the defeat of the Vetus hoped for by the supporters of the Novus is consistent with their principles, just as the defeat of the Novus by the Vetus should likewise be hoped for. They are mistaken therefore who believe that it is possible to hold together two opposing forms of Catholic worship in the name of a plurality of liturgical expression that is the daughter of the conciliar mentality no more and no less than it is the daughter of the hermeneutic of continuity. 

The modus operandi of the Innovators emerges once again in this operation against the Motu Proprio: first some of the most fanatical opponents of the traditional liturgy call for the abrogation of Summorum Pontificum as a provocation, calling the ancient Mass “divisive.” Then the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith asks the Ordinaries to respond to a questionnaire (here), the answers to which are practically pre-packaged (the Bishop’s career depends on the way he goes along with what he reports to the Holy See, because the content of his responses to the questionnaire will also be made known to the Congregation of Bishops). Then, with a nonchalant air, during a closed-door meeting with the members of the Italian Episcopate, Bergoglio says that he is concerned about seminarians “who seem good, but are rigid” (here) and the spread of the traditional liturgy, always reiterating that the conciliar liturgical reform is irreversible. Furthermore, he appoints a bitter enemy of the Vetus Ordo as Prefect of Divine Worship who will be an ally in the application of any future restrictions. Finally, we learn that Cardinals Parolin and Ouellet are among the first to desire this downsizing of the Motu Proprio (here). This obviously leads “conservative” Prelates to come scurrying in defense of the present system of the co-existence of the two forms, ordinary and extraordinary, giving Francis the opportunity to show that he is the prudent moderator of two opposing currents by moving towards “only” a limitation of Summorum Pontificum rather than its total abrogation: which – as we know – was exactly what he was aiming for from the start of his operation. 

Regardless of the final outcome, the deus ex machina of this predictable play is, as always, Bergoglio, who is even ready to take credit for a gesture of clement indulgence towards conservatives as well as unloading the responsibilities for a restrictive application onto the new Prefect, Archbishop Arthur Roche, and his followers. Thus, in the event of a choral protest of the faithful and an unhinged reaction by the Prefect or other Prelates, once again Bergoglio will enjoy the clash between progressives and traditionalists, since he will then have excellent arguments to affirm that the coexistence of the two forms of the Roman Rite causes divisions in the Church and that it is thus more prudent to return to the pax montiniana, that is, the total proscription of the Mass of all time. 

I exhort my Brothers in the Episcopate, Priests, and laity to strenuously defend their right to the Catholic liturgy solemnly sanctioned by the Saint Pius V’s Bull Quo Primum, and by means of it to defend the Holy Church and the Papacy, which have both been exposed to discredit and ridicule by the Pastors themselves. The question of the Motu Proprio is not in the least negotiable, because it reaffirms the legitimacy of a rite that has never been abrogated nor is able to be abrogated. Furthermore, in addition to the certain damage that airing these novelties will cause to souls and to the certain advantage that will come from them to the Devil and his servants, there is also added the indecorous rudeness displayed to Benedict XVI, who is still living, by Bergoglio, who ought to know that the authority the Roman Pontiff exercises over the Church is vicarious and that the power which he holds comes to him from Our Lord Jesus Christ, the One Head of the Mystical Body. Abusing the Apostolic authority and the power of the Holy Keys for a purpose opposed to that for which they were instituted by the Lord represents an unheard-of offense against the Majesty of God, a dishonor for the Church, and a sin for which he will have to answer for to the One whose Vicar he is. And whoever refuses the title of Vicar of Christ knows that by doing so the legitimacy of his authority also fails. 

It is not acceptable for the supreme authority of the Church to allow itself to cancel, in a disturbing operation of cancel culture in a religious key, the inheritance it has received from its Fathers; nor is it permissible to consider as being outside of the Church those who are not prepared to accept the privation of the Mass and the Sacraments celebrated in the form that has molded almost two thousand years of Saints. The Church is not an agency in which the marketing office decides to cancel old products from the catalog and propose new ones in their stead according to customer requests. Imposing the liturgical revolution with force on priests and the faithful in the name of obedience to the Council, stripping away from them the very soul of the Christian life and replacing it with a rite that the Freemason Bugnini copied from Cranmer’s Book of Common Prayer, was already painful. That abuse, partially healed by Benedict XVI with the Motu Proprio, cannot be repeated in any way now in the presence of elements that are all largely in favor of the liberalization of the ancient liturgy. If one really wanted to help the people of God in this crisis, the reformed liturgy should have been abolished, which in fifty years has caused more damage than Calvinism has done. 

We do not know if the feared restrictions that the Holy See intends to make to the Motu Proprio will affect diocesan priests, or if they will also affect the Institutes whose members celebrate the ancient rite exclusively. I fear, however, as I have already had the occasion to say in the past, that it will be precisely on the latter that the demolishing action of the Innovators will be unleashed, who can perhaps tolerate the ceremonial aspects of the Tridentine liturgy but absolutely do not accept adherence to the doctrinal and ecclesiological structure that they imply, which contrasts sharply with the conciliar deviations that the Innovators want to impose without exception. This is why it is to be feared that these Institutes will be asked to make some form of submission to the conciliar liturgy, for example by making the celebration of the Novus Ordo mandatory at least occasionally, as diocesan priests must already do. In this way, whoever makes use of the Motu Proprio will be constrained not only to an implicit acceptance of the reformed liturgy but also to a public acceptance of the new rite and its doctrinal mens. And whoever celebrates the two forms of the rite will find himself ipso facto discredited above all in his consistency, passing off his liturgical choices as a merely aesthetic – I would say almost choreographic – in fact, depriving him of any sort of critical judgment towards the Montinian Mass and the mens that gives it form: because he will find himself forced to celebrate that Mass. This is a malicious and cunning operation, in which an authority that abuses its power delegitimizes those who oppose it, on the one hand by granting the ancient rite, but on the other hand making it a merely aesthetic question and obligating an insidious bi-ritualism and an even more insidious adherence to two opposing and contrasting doctrinal approaches. But how can a priest be asked to celebrate a venerable and holy rite in which he finds perfect coherence between doctrine, ceremony, and life at one moment, and at the next a falsified rite that winks at heretics and contemptibly keeps silent about what the other proudly proclaims? 

Let us pray, therefore: let us pray that the Divine Majesty, to which we render perfect worship celebrating the venerable ancient rite, will deign to enlighten the Sacred Pastors so that they desist from their purpose and indeed promote the Tridentine Mass for the good of Holy Church and for the glory of the Most Holy Trinity. Let us invoke the Holy Patrons of the Mass – Saint Gregory the Great, Saint Pius V, and Saint Pius X in primis, and all the Saints who over the course of the centuries have celebrated the Holy Sacrifice in the form that has been handed down to us, so that we may faithfully preserve it. May their intercession before the throne of God beg for the preservation of the Mass of all time, thanks to which we are sanctified, strengthened in virtue, and able to resist the attacks of the Evil One. And if ever the sins of the men of the Church should merit for us a punishment so severe as that prophesied by Daniel, let us prepare to descend into the catacombs, offering this trial for the conversion of the Shepherds. 

+ Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop

REPARATION!


Most sweet Jesus, whose overflowing charity for men is requited by so much forgetfulness, negligence, and contempt, behold us prostrate before Thee, eager to repair by a special act of homage the cruel indifference and injuries to which Thy loving Heart is everywhere subject. 

Mindful, alas! that we ourselves have had a share in such great indignities, which we now deplore from the depths of our hearts, we humbly ask Thy pardon and declare our readiness to atone by voluntary expiation, not only for our own personal offenses, but also for the sins of those, who, straying far from the path of salvation, refuse in their obstinate infidelity to follow Thee, their Shepherd and Leader, or, renouncing the promises of their baptism, have cast off the sweet yoke of Thy law. 

We are now resolved to expiate each and every deplorable outrage committed against Thee; we are now determined to make amends for the manifold offenses against Christian modesty in unbecoming dress and behavior, for all the foul seductions laid to ensnare the feet of the innocent, for the frequent violations of Sundays and holydays, and the shocking blasphemies uttered against Thee and Thy Saints. 

We wish also to make amends for the insults to which Thy Vicar on earth and Thy priests are subjected, for the profanation, by conscious neglect or terrible acts of sacrilege, of the very crimes of nations who resist the rights and teaching authority of the Church which Thou hast founded. 

Would that we were able to wash away such abominations with our blood. We now offer, in reparation for these violations of Thy divine honor, the satisfaction Thou once made to Thy Eternal Father on the cross and which Thou continuest to renew daily on our altars; we offer it in union with the acts of atonement of Thy Virgin Mother and all the Saints and of the pious faithful on earth; and we sincerely promise to make recompense, as far as we can with the help of Thy grace, for all neglect of Thy great love and for the sins we and others have committed in the past. 

Henceforth, we will live a life of unswerving faith, of purity of conduct, of perfect observance of the precepts of the Gospel, and especially that of charity. We promise to the best of our power to prevent others from offending Thee and to bring as many as possible to follow Thee. 

O loving Jesus, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mother, our model in reparation, deign to receive the voluntary offering we make of this act of expiation; and by the crowning gift of perseverance keep us faithful unto death in our duty and the allegiance we owe to Thee, so that we may all one day come to that happy home, wherewith the Father and the Holy Spirit Thou livest and reignest, God, forever and ever. Amen.



 Love divine, all loves excelling,

Joy of heaven to earth come down;

Fix in us thy humble dwelling;

All thy faithful mercies crown!

Jesus, Thou art all compassion,

Pure unbounded love Thou art;

Visit us with Thy salvation;

Enter every trembling heart.

 

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit,

Into every troubled breast!

Let us all in Thee inherit;

Let us find that promised rest.

Take away our bent to sinning;

Alpha and Omega be;

End of faith, as its Beginning,

Set our hearts at liberty.

 

Come, Almighty to deliver,

Let us all Thy life receive;

Suddenly return and never,

Never more Thy temples leave.

Thee we would be always blessing,

Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,

Pray and praise Thee without ceasing,

Glory in Thy perfect love.

 

Finish, then, Thy new creation;

Pure and spotless let us be.

Let us see Thy great salvation

Perfectly restored in Thee;

Changed from glory into glory,

'Til in heaven we take our place,

'Til we cast our crowns before Thee,

Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Now that the Church has once again done the government's bidding, how many will come back, Cardinal Collins?

This Friday, June 11, churches may open to 15% capacity and if certain data points are met, 21 days later at 25%. Mass is on the same level as the purchase of pool noodles but something less than buying dope. Cardinal Collins is "thankful" to Doug Ford for this.

In some smaller churches with narrower aisles, there is not much difference between the percentage maximums as "social distancing" of six feet must still be maintained. In one I know, the centre aisle is less than five feet and the side less than three. When you social distance the actual occupancy at the most is about 24%. 

Yesterday in Ontario, the number of new infections of SARS-CoV-2 which causes the Chinese Communist Party Virus was the lowest since October 2020. Have we lost our minds, of course, it is, it's June! As we progress through this reversal, assuming it remains, the question remains as to the later stage. When do churches return to a higher number or to no limit at all?

The post-COVID church in Toronto and a lot of other places is going to look a lot different. Some, many, will not return. Some will have found something better to do on a Sunday morning. Some will have bolted to the others such as the Society of St. Pius X (overflowing now in Toronto to a second church, the privately owned, Cathedral of the Transfiguration in Markham on Sundays at 5:00 P.M.). Some will have fallen out of the habit and others will live in perpetual fear of being around others. Many will be angry over being abandoned by their bishops and priests and will just not ever return, many will lose faith. The result will be mass church closings and a loss of faith.

This is the legacy of the Church in Canada getting in bed with its masonic governments to do their bidding.

It happened before. 

Two words, first word? Name it.

Second word? Name it, too.

There's a Mass For You On June 11 but if you're not part of the 15%, there is still, No Mass For You!

As reported on this blog last Wednesday, June 2, that the "conservative" Ontario government of Premier Doug Ford would open churches as of June 14 at 15% of capacity, that announcement has now been with the opening bumped up three days to June 11. Sunday Mass will again be available, indoors, next Sunday, June 13, unless the bishops find a way of preventing it.

Reopening Ontario | Ontario.ca

Once the numbers of those suffering from SARS-CoV-2 drop sufficiently more and the take up of the rate of experimental genetic injections is met, the next level will be 25% no sooner than 21 days later.

Cardinal Collins had a meeting last Thursday with Ford, but no announcement was made. Given the extent of the relaxation of fascist restrictions by Ford, that meeting had nothing to do with it, other than maybe fixing religious services at the same rate as non-essential retail.

Isn't it great to know that attending Mass is as important as buying a pool noodle but less important than buying dope? Good job, Eminence!

As of this writing, the Archdiocese of Toronto has not issued any information.

We have.

Oh, they did it. Archdiocese of Toronto - Archdiocese of Toronto Returns to In-person Masses This Weekend (archtoronto.org)

There is much on which to reflect this Solemnity of Corpus Christi - No Holy Mass, no Procession, no Holy Sacrament. Who did this to us?

It is the Solemnity of Corpus Christi in the modern rite today and the traditional if transferred. In the great and glorious Archdiocese of Toronto, there is, however, as usual, there is


On this day, some in Toronto will attend their parish to receive Holy Communion under a contrived service. One would think if you could have ten persons (under Ford's edict) you could have Mass for ten with the priest and then another ten and so on. Taxing on the priest? Yes, but many do three Masses on Sunday now, at least do that. Or, no Holy Communion at Mass, the Cardinal has already acknowledged that it can be separated from the liturgy. Holy Communion by appointment, individual or family on the tongue, if desired, in private, no China Virus risk. But no, that would anger those whom Collins referred to as "virtuous public health officials."

Tomorrow, Ontario Premier Doug Ford will announce changes to the current fascist restrictions in Ontario. As reported here on this blog through our own confidential sources a day before the Cardinal's meeting with Ford on Thursday past, Mass will be restored to 15% on June 14 and 30% on July 5. Never forget that as bad as this has been on the part of Ford, Cardinal Collins has made it worse, he has abandoned the faithful and sold out the Church to the government. The same governments that the Church sold out to more than a century ago on the matter of Residential Schools. Hypocrites and vipers, all of them.

On this day it is important to remember that Thomas Cardinal Collins and most, but not all, bishops in Ontario have forbidden Holy Communion on the tongue. Many Catholics have not had Holy Communion for over a year because they will not violate their conscience. 

It is important to remember this. In a webinar not too many months ago, this is what Cardinal Collins said he would do to any parish where Holy Communion on the tongue was being distributed:

Cardinal Collins - Why is Neil MacCarthy and his communications group mocking the faithful?

This blog post writes itself!



On the Residential Schools and the current situation in Kamloops

The news coming out of Kamloops that over 200 bodies have been found to be buried on the grounds of a Residential School operated by a Catholic Order, the Oblates, (why is it always the Oblates?) has caused more media outrage and inane virtue signalling. While everyone desires to kick the Catholic Church and its Orders for this, and most deservedly so, the Anglicans, Methodists, and Mennonites had their own share.

The issue is complex. The history is ignored by the ignorant and those paid in the media not to be. It is important to understand that this removal of children from the homes of our native peoples was the policy of the Government of Canada. It was wrong by our current standards and any standards then of Catholic teaching and Christian charity. Children belong with their parents, period. They were forcibly removed and not just taught Christianity, Catholic or Protestant, but deprogrammed of their own history, language and culture. A Royal Commission was struck and reported and under our grown-up  Prime Minister Stephen Harper (miss him yet?) a national apology for this dark part of Canadian history was made. The intent may have been good and sensible at the time - to educate and integrate these children into Canadian society, but it went very wrong.  

They will protect you. Eugene de Laestar
The first schools were established in Canada in the early 1600s by Catholics, nuns and priests from France. It is arguable that the experience in Quebec between the French and our native people there was better than elsewhere later. It was in 1883 that the government became involved with funding and expansion and that is likely when the evils began. It became a business and corrupt men and women, isolated, had the children as their prey. As we have seen elsewhere, anytime you have children away from the home, notwithstanding abuse that may happen at home, and put them in an institution, they can become prey to people seeking their own sexual and dominance gratifications. I suspect many of these children were not only physically brutalized, common everywhere, but many were sexually violated, raped and murdered. 

The outrage of the Kamloops case is premature. There are graves, but why? Was every child raped or murdered? Would some not have died from diphtheria, meningitis, influenza or smallpox or other diseases for which they had no natural immunities? Was this a mass grave with bodies dumped indicating "mass murder" or was this a cemetery where they were buried over the century-long history of the school? We just don't know.

Sadly, the Catholic Church is once again slandered for history. More sadly, the filthy perverts and brutes within the Holy Bride of Christ have brought this on and have gotten away with it for centuries because weak, effeminate, unbelieving and corrupt bishops have covered it up. Is it any wonder we are where we are?

This writer knows much about the effects of brutality and psychological abuse having experienced Basilian brutality and abuse as late as 1970. I'm glad to say I held that rotten Congregation of St. Basil and its cabal of filthy sodomites, modernists, brutes and serial litigants, bullies and plagiarists to account in more ways than one.

May Our Blessed Lord comfort the families of all those who suffer from the memory and experiences and grant peace to the deceased and execute His Divine Justice on the perpetrators of all abuse and in particular, those who did it under His Most Holy Name.

Feast of Corpus Christ (Yes, it is Thursday) and there is

 

But maybe soon at a paltry 15% and then maybe 40% three weeks later but no thanks to this man who has done nothing for a year. 

On this Feast of Corpus Christi, I raise an issue of how this man and his ilk have hurt many Catholics.

They have banned Holy Communion on the tongue. Other than the Toronto Oratory where they have violated liturgical law and provided Holy Communion on the hand at the traditional Latin Mass, (and have and will pay dearly for it) most priests offering the Holy Sacrifice according to the ancient rite, have not. There are many Catholics and let us not be mistaken, many, many faithful who attend the reformed Mass in typical parishes that will not receive Holy Communion in the hand. They believe that it is a sacrilege to do so and against their conscience. I am one of those who cannot and will not out of conscience and I have a variety of reasons for this. 

In the Latin Mass community where I worship and serve as Cantor and we watched our community plummet by 25% last June 2020 on the lifting of restrictions. They left for many reasons, one being that Father would not disobey his bishop but would also not disobey the ultimate law and scandalize the faithful. Holy Communion was only for the priest. Yet, during this time to the next shutdown, not only did the community regain the 25% by new people but added even more.

For well over a year now, 15 months, the Catholic faithful have been starved of the Holy Eucharist by this Cardinal and his ilk. Many of us have not, we know priests, who will in private, provide our needs, many, however, do not. Starved of the Holy Eucharis by Thomas Cardinal Collins - a shameful legacy.

There is so much to unpack liturgically this day. The hymns of the Divine Office, the text of the Mass, all written by St. Thomas Aquinas. You can read the office by clicking above on the tab and read the Mass text here. How sad that the glorious Lauda Sion cannot be sung or heard today.

The Catholics who have sacrificed for the sake of their conscience will receive a crown and consolation from the Lord himself. Those who have starved them, well, I would not wish to be them.
