Thomas Cardinal Collins - There is now a Mass For You to worship the new god of scientism!

Thomas Cardinal Collins has declared that the dark period of No Mass For You will come to an end as of March 1, 2022. Miraculously, he has revoked his canonically illegal ban of Holy Communion on the tongue. However, those who follow the traditional norms for Holy Communion reception must come up last, shamed and singled out for all to see. They will be identified as those who Bergoglio attacks. Those “rigid, self-absorbed promethean neo-pelagians who ultimately trust only in their own powers and feel superior to others because they observe certain rules or remain intransigently faithful to a particular Catholic style from the past.” Collins and Bergoglio mock and segregate Catholics just as Justin Trudeau has done to Canadians. We are in the same boat as Justin’s racists, sexists, homophobic, transphobic yobs with unacceptable views. We don’t believe in the new religion of scientism and its covidist god.

"I have been clear throughout the pandemic that Covid-19 restrictions would only remain in place for as long as necessary,” wrote Collins, channelling Justin Trudeau and his unconstitutional emergency orders that would not last “for a minute longer than necessary.” They have the same master and it is not Jesus Christ. They have the same writers and they are not the Four Evangelists!

The other good news is that choirs can be restored, but all need to sing with masks on. What a joke. They state that they "follow the science." This is witchcraft!

Collins has betrayed Christ, betrayed the faithful and impoverished us with two years of this. He failed to stand up for the rights of the Church and the faithful and aided in our subjection to government diktat. He did not stand up for Canadians fighting for their freedom and did the bidding of the government in exchange for money. He is a disgrace. A failure.

May he enjoy his retirement at your expense at the luxurious Newman Centre Serra House after the contributors to the former were outraged at his original intention to retire there at their expense.

The man is as much an idiot as Justin. The good news is both will be gone within the year.

To all clergy and staff of the Archdiocese of Toronto,

I wish to extend my deep gratitude for your ministry during these almost two years of pandemic. These have been difficult and challenging days, but I am heartened by the witness and outreach exhibited by all of you in accompanying and caring for the Catholic community as we journeyed through this valley of tears. Please know that your work is deeply appreciated.

I have been clear throughout the pandemic that Covid-19 restrictions would only remain in place for as long as necessary. These restrictions have stayed with us for longer than we had hoped when we created the WorshipSafe protocols in the summer of 2020. While these measures have been challenging at times, it is clear that they have been effective in protecting the health and well-being of our parishioners, volunteers, staff and clergy. In particular, I thank the thousands of volunteers who helped to clean churches and assist with the many WorshipSafe guidelines while welcoming parishioners and maintaining a safe environment for all.

Thankfully, the vaccination rate in our province is high and the number of Covid cases with severe outcomes are declining. As a result, restrictions are gradually being lifted. As communicated earlier this week, beginning on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, capacity limits at our churches, including physical distancing requirements, will be removed.

Masks will continue to be worn in our churches until directed otherwise by medical and health officials (as throughout the pandemic some limited medical exemptions may apply).

In consultation with medical officials, a number of other restrictions will also be lifted as of March 1, 2022 – please refer to the enclosure for additional details.

In all of our efforts, let us remember to serve those who need us. The pandemic has been a long, stressful time for many and we should expect that the faithful will have different responses to the removal of Covid restrictions, ranging from joy to fear. Concerns, and even conflict, may arise as these restrictions are removed. I also acknowledge that clergy or staff will experience these same feelings.

Some parishes may wish to gradually increase capacity while others may return to full capacity right away. I encourage pastors to exercise prudential judgement to meet the needs of their community while also providing access to the sacraments to as many as possible. Similarly, pastors will need to discern how best to return their office operations to normal. Kindness and charity should prevail in the way we encounter and dialogue with one another. In these times, the people of God will look to you for guidance.

It is providential that we have reached this point where these restrictions can be removed at the beginning of Lent. This time of preparation for Easter is an ideal moment for parishes to undertake special efforts to welcome the faithful home once again. Many parishioners have not been inside the church for some time and we need to think of creative, pastoral and thoughtful approaches to welcome them back.

The Eucharist remains the source and summit of our life in Christ. For Christians, participation in the Sunday Eucharist is the central experience of the week, and that is the foundation for the obligation of every Catholic to be personally present at Mass every Sunday. Of course, if there is a legitimate reason (such as being sick) this obligation does not apply. Similarly, when pandemic restrictions for the common good and love of neighbour have prevented attendance, then the obligation does not apply, and it is understandable as well that some may feel hesitant at first about returning to personal participation. But as the restrictions are lifted, now is the time to encourage Catholics to return to physical presence at Sunday Mass, if not impeded for a legitimate reason, in keeping with our basic Sunday obligation as Catholics.

Further instructions on Holy Week liturgies will be distributed at a later date, but you should anticipate that most of our pre-pandemic practices will return for Holy Week. As part of this, I invite our priests to once again join me at St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica for the Chrism Mass.

Thank you again for your patience and dedication to fostering a safe environment over the past two years. Please know of my ongoing support and profound gratitude for all that you continue to do.

Sincerely in Christ,

Thomas Cardinal Collins
Archbishop of Toronto

Updates to the WorshipSafe Protocols Taking Effect on

Tuesday, March 1, 2022

• All capacity limits, including physical distancing requirements, are removed from churches and parish halls. Parishes can gradually begin to remove floor markings and other signage as restrictions are lifted. Parishes may wish to continue with distancing at Holy Communion as a best practice for a period of time, removing all floor markings and distancing at the discretion of the pastor.

• Indoor mask use is still required for those over the age of two (limited medical exemptions apply)

• Holy Communion on the tongue can resume, but those receiving Holy Communion on the tongue should ideally be at the end of the Communion line

• The kiss of peace is still discouraged at this time. A bow or wave should continue to be used as an alternative

Holy water fonts can be refilled. Prayer books, hymnals, magazines, bulletins and votive candles can return to the church, if they have not already

• Altar servers and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion can return to pre-pandemic duties

• Choirs and cantors still must be masked or three metres/nine feet from anyone else

• Reporting of rapid test results for unvaccinated clergy, staff and volunteers is suspended. Proof of vaccination is not a requirement to enter Archdiocese of Toronto churches

• Baptisms can return to pre-pandemic practices

• Confessionals and confession rooms can reopen, provided that both parties are masked

• Parish offices can resume operations in the manner that best suits the local conditions of that church, while respecting all normal applicable regulations, laws and archdiocesan policies

• The use of hand sanitizer upon entry to the church and before the distribution of Holy Communion remains a best practice and is encouraged. It is still recommended that health and hygiene signage remains posted in parishes at this time

• Meetings in parish halls may resume for those who may wish to do so – mask use is required

• Contact tracing and online Mass registration systems are no longer required. Parishioners should be encouraged to continue self-screening for Covid-19 symptoms and stay home if they have any symptoms

• Reporting all Covid cases is no longer required, but the regional bishops and Pastoral Centre staff are still available to answer Covid-related questions, help with the communication of serious incidents and arrange for visiting priests in the case of illness

• Parishes are encouraged to review updated procedures with volunteers and others who may be assisting with the celebration of the sacraments

• Parishes are encouraged to make an announcement at the beginning of Mass over the first several weeks of March 2022 noting the lifting of restrictions and reminders regarding updated procedures that may have changed

Is Theresa Tam (be sure to wear a mask during sex), the high priest for the likes of Trudeau and Tommy Collins? Kieran Moore, in Ontario, for Doug Ford. These public Health officials seem like modern Oracles.
Just yesterday, Tam mused that mandates may be needed once again by next autumn. Kick the covid can down the road a little more.

With the archdiocese relinquishing its WorshipSafe® protocols in lock step with the expertocracy, it makes sense that all but mask requirements are being dropped by cardinal Collins. But to a "non expert" like myself, this makes no sense at all.

I can't help but see it as a symbolic demand, like burning a pinch of incense to Caesar. It is as if the state is demanding some kind of assurance of docility from the Church and citizens in general. The symbolism is rich. Masks efface our individuality and signal that we are reluctant to open our mouths to express "unacceptable views". They serve as a reminder that we are mere vectors of disease.

Many have embraced mask-wearing as a way to signal that they are "good citizens", and are prepared to continue with this practice long after it is required. I pray that the archdiocese has not sunk that deep into the world.

A man (this bishop) who lives in fear and follows the corrupted 'science' and government! Yeah, continue to wear the useless face diapers but at least the faithful can receive the sacraments that never should have been denied them in the first place. Count me with Christ as being "rigid" and etc. And last place works well for me. As one of my confessors said, "Choose the last place so Christ will know where to find you."

Jim J. McCrea said...

In our parish in Pembroke we must come up to Communion to receive on the tongue after those have received on the hand.

In some Masses, the vast majority are singled out and shamed as they come up after.

We have a very faithful parish.

"...the number [singular subject] of Covid cases with severe outcomes
are [plural verb] declining..." In addition to an orthodox catechist, and a real scientist, the cardinal needs a competent proofreader.

As to those who receive Our Lord in the proper way, in our parish, the number who come "last" are easily double the rest of the congregation. I think it has become an opportunity to evangelize.

From Trudeau I to Trudeau II, successive Liberal Governments have waged an aggressive and unrelenting war against Christian Culture, Catholic Education, The Divinely-Revealed Family and Human Life. Most recently - and once again - the Trudeau “Liberals” proved that they are fascists by their their vicious assault on the Sacred Rights and Freedoms of Canadian citizens. As cowardly bishops in Nazi Germany aided and abetted the Holocaust by their quietism and obsequious deference to evil authority, the cowardly silence of the gelatinous, milquetoast Canadian bishops and their obstinate refusal to vociferously condemn - by name - the Anti-Life, Anti-Family Liberal juggernaut has accelerated the collapse of the Catholic Faith in this nation.

“If Only The Canadian Bishops Had Served Their God As Well As They Served Their Anti-Life Prime Minister…”.

This is the result of synodality with every Bishop viewing himself as a god, answerable to no-one. All instructions concerning faith, morals & lay participation used to come from the Vatican until that body decided it no longer wanted the papal monarchy given to His Church by Christ so gave itself the power to change it in such a way that it would becme a disordered & disfunctional mass of semi-Christians, infidels, Masons, Modernists & Mafia each with their own agendas. This is, of course, Satanic & came to us directly as a result of what Our Lady described as a Bad Council & Bad Mass. We cannot hope to find a resolutiion to the lavender takeover of the CC until that council is revoked & tradition restored worldwide.

what are we lepers!! end of the communion line...the masks for choir is pretty darn discriminatory also.
the fact is that this can return as fast as they came, this is just a control tactic, they still have their tentacles in us. To be honest we are being manipulated into thinking there is some human plague killing us upon contact, when in fact its the anti christ - attacking our soul!
