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.

Arbitrary nonsensical rules and guidelines not based on any science. But when a baby in utero is not considered a human being, why bother talking about science.

I don't wish to rub it in, and that's not my point, but today I went into a New England drug store, Walgreen's, and walked around without my mask. Half the people had a mask, half didn't. I later went to a Walmart and saw most did not have masks on and I didn't wear mine either. We've been going to Mass all the way through Covid-mania. For a while we wore masks but stopped about 4 weeks ago. We received Holy Communion all the way through, at our TLM.
The people must rise up. The people must say, we've had enough, and it takes some to start it and more will follow. Covid is real, I had it, but I got through it as most do. It's not Typhoid. It's not Ebola. We've been LIED to.
Citizens or slaves. Which one are you.

It would be best if no one returned to the sacrilegious Novus Ordo worship services. Find the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and never go to man centered worship again.

Vox, you mention: << 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. >>

Very well-put. When churches opened in June 2020, after the first lockdown, some were basically at 15% anyway, as if anticipating the lower capacity thresholds that we have seen in some months of 2021. A good example of this is the cathedral in London, where "the six foot rule" must be observed at all times. So, you end up with two out of three pews cordoned off, etc, where attendance was kept closer to 10% than to 30% -- even when there has been a 30% rule.

Contrast this other parishes, where every other pew is in use, where it's easier to register and/or where no registration is require, etc. You can learn a lot about a priest's faith, going by whether he actually wants to be open -- or not.
