From Barona at Toronto Catholic Witness:

"The man will leave behind a local Church decimated. The once Catholic school system has been completely secularists to the point of being paganized. He has remained silent on the violently aggressive imposition of gender ideology on children in schools. He has also overseen the local Church becoming an appendage of the State; even going so far as to cede control of the sacred Liturgy to the State. He has also conceded that public worship of God is determined by the State. He has not only betrayed Catholics but ALL men and women with his silence, even support of State violations of civil liberties as interpreted according to Natural Law. Cowardice and timidity have led to a sad, tragic legacy. The one shining light is that we can remind ourselves not to put our “trust in princes”, but in Our Lord Jesus Christ alone."

Courageous words from Barona. Will a carbon copy take the place of "Timid" Tommy?

Is Barona being unsynododal in one-sidedness? Fran's will never forget the impressive contribution.

Our Catholic bishops through their silence and inaction have turned the Church into mostly one of irrelevance in the lives of believers. The state has come to govern much of the Church. In China, the CCP approves all church activities. When the Vatican abandoned faithful Catholics in that country, they allowed the CCP to even select new bishops. Ditto for local bishops when it comes to Catholic education in Canada. During the "pandemic" the bishops have handed over to the federal and provincial and municipal governments much of the control over Church activities. Pastors who tried to speak out against the attack on religious freedom and civil rights rights, and were arrested, fined and even jailed, were not supported by the bishops. The bishops have chosen to side with Caesar and the Great Reset. Happy Birthday Cardinal Collins, but sadly there is little to celebrate, except that Christ and His truth will never forsake us.
