St. Philip Neri delivers Sermon on St. Philip's Day in Toronto!




On the Feast of St.Philip Neri, at Holy Family Church in Toronto, run by the Fathers of the Toronto Oratory, the sermon was unexpectedly given by the "sweetest of fathers", St. Philip himself. St. Philip delivered his homily in the manner of one of his spiritual sons, the now Blessed John Henry Newman. Speaking cor ad cor loquitur, the saint whispered the following words:


Well! when shall we have a mind to begin to do good? Let no one wear a mask, otherwise he will do ill; and if he has one, let him burn it. Men should often renew their good resolutions, and not lose heart because they are tempted against them.

Let persons in the world sanctify themselves in their own houses, for neither the court, professions, or labour, are any hindrance to the service of God. In dealing with our neighbour, we must assume as much pleasantness of manner as we can, and by this affability win him to the way of virtue.

Perfection does not consist in such outward things as shedding tears and the like, but in true and solid virtues. Let a man frequent the holy Sacraments, go to sermons, and be often reading the Lives of Saints. Let a man always think that he has God before his eyes. When a man is in an occasion of sin, let him look what he is doing, get himself out of the occasion, and avoid the sin.

The greatest help to perseverance in the spiritual life is the habit of prayer, especially under the direction of our confessor. There is nothing the devil fears so much, or so much tries to hinder, as prayer. An excellent method of preserving ourselves from relapsing into serious faults, is to say every evening, “To-morrow I may be dead.” A man without prayer is an animal without the use of reason.

To leave our prayer when we are called to do some act of charity for our neighbour, is not really a quitting of prayer, but leaving Christ for Christ, that is, depriving ourselves of spiritual sweetnesses in order to gain souls.

If a man finds it very hard to forgive injuries, let him look at a crucifix, and think that Christ has shed all His Blood for him, and not only forgave his enemies, but prayed the Eternal Father to forgive them also.Let him remember also that when he says the Pater Noster every day, instead of asking pardon for his sins, he is calling down vengeance upon them. Men are generally the carpenters of their own crosses. 


If we wish the Holy Spirit to teach us how to pray, we must practise humility and obedience. The fruit we ought to get from prayer, is to do what is pleasing to the Lord. A virtuous life consists in mortifying vices, sins, bad thoughts, and evil affections, and in exercising ourselves in the acquisition of holy virtues. Let us be humble and keep ourselves down:- Obedience! Humility! Detachment!

We must take care of little faults: for he who once begins to go backward, and to make light of such defects, brings a sort of grossness over his conscience, and then goes wrong altogether. The servant of God ought to seek knowledge, but never to show it or make a parade of it. The devil has a crafty custom of sometimes urging spiritual persons to penances and mortifications, in order that by going indiscreet lengths in this way, they may so weaken themselves as to be unable to attend to good works of greater importance; or be so intimidated by the sickliness they have brought upon themselves as to abandon their customary devotions, and at last turn their backs on the service of God.

The true medicine to cure us of pride, is to keep down and thwart touchiness of mind. Humility is the true guardian of chastity. When a man has fallen he ought to acknowledge it in some such way as this: “Ah, if I had been humble I should not have fallen!” If we wish to help our neighbour, we must reserve neither place, hour, or season, for ourselves. To obtain perfectly the gift of humility, four things are required: to despise the world, to despise no person, to despise one’s self, to despise being despised. We ought to hope for and love the glory of God by means of a good life.

To begin and end well, devotion to our Blessed Lady, the Mother of God, is nothing less than indispensable. Let us think of Mary, for she is that unspeakable virgin, that glorious lady, who conceived and brought forth, without detriment to her virginity, Him whom the width of the heavens cannot contain within itself. The true servant of God acknowledges no other country but heaven. Be devout to the Madonna, keep yourself from sin, and God will deliver you from your evils.

In order to enter Paradise we must be well justified and well purified. Let the young man look after the flesh, and the old man after avarice, and we shall all be saints together. Where there is no great mortification there is no great sanctity. We must give ourselves to God altogether. God makes all his own the soul that is wholly given to him. Let us reflect that the Word left heaven, and stooped to become man for us. 

Besides pardoning those who persecute us, we ought to feel pity for the delusion they are labouring under. To one who really loves God, there is nothing more harassing or burdensome than life. Let young men be cheerful, and indulge in the recreations proper to their age, provided they keep out of the way of sin. Not to know how to deny our soul its own wishes, is to foment a very hot-bed of vices. The hour is finished - we may say the same of the year; but the time to do good is not finished yet.

Ariana Grande: corrupter of children and destroyer of the soul

Sexual libertine and pervert: Ariana Grande 
Until last evening I had never heard of Ariana Grande. 

A few minutes on the internet this morning identified her as a promoter of sexual libertinism, pornography, obscenity, profanity, feminism, and the LGBTQ agenda. Yet for all of this, it seems that parents have no qualms about sending their pre-teen and teen girls to listen and watch this loathsome individual. 


Grande with the "gay" flag surrounded with effeminate looking males

What kind of parent permits their child to listen to this woman's so-called "songs"? To attend her "concerts"? Objectively, a very evil parent. 


The sexual libertinism and perversion of a Grande "concert"
A brief extra minute searching the internet identified a Scott Samuel "Scooter" Braun as her manager. This vile man is nothing but a huckster and promoter of pornographic filth. A review of the types of show Grande stages, are what might be called "slutfests" and the promotion of homosexuality. The promotion of sexual libertinism and perversion is not the type of concert a good parent takes their child to. 




A further review of a few Grande "songs" show them replete with graphic, street slang referring to sexual acts, as well as the usual four letter words. Apparently, such evil did not concern the parents who permit mere children to listen and attend Grande shows. What kind of parent allows a young child to be exposed to the pornographic filth, profanity-laced, sexual debauchery of  "Side to Side", or "Bad Decisions"? 

Grande waving the "gay" rainbow flag with an effete male to her left
I cannot but be puzzled how parents who seemingly are so distressed about the killing of their children, but remained utterly unconcerned that their children were slowly being spiritually poisoned. Tragic as the murder of the human person is, a far greater tragedy is their eternal destiny. To murder the body as evil as it is, is not as evil as murdering the soul. 



It cannot be denied. Had parents showed vigilance and spiritual concern for their daughters, these children would be alive today. Sin breeds sin. 

It is interesting that the Islamist mass murderer, the apostate Catholic Grande, and her Talmudic Jewish Manager have one thing in common: a hatred of Jesus Christ

The Dominican Order is under the control of Homosexuals



Having introduced the Homo-Jesuits, we turn our attention to the Homo-Dominicans. This centuries old Order has long been known to have been infiltrated by homosexuals. In fact, seminaries have been closed in the United States due to rampant homosexuality. I place before readers three quotes by prominent Homo-Dominicans. It should also be noted that neither of these men were ever disciplined, relieved of their pastoral duties, suspended etc.

Richard Woods, an American, has led a career as a prominent academic with appointments in the United States and the United Kingdom (Oxford). He has played a prominent role in "queering" the Church in the United States.

Gareth Moore, an Englishman, notwithstanding his militant support of sodomy was elected Prior of a Belgian Priory. Moore, now deceased,  was intimately connected with the once bastion of orthodoxy and scholarly work: Blackfriars. Such is power of the homosexual juggernaut and takeover of the clergy. 

Adriano Oliva, a leading Dominican theologian, argues that if a person has same-sex attraction, then it comes from the soul, not the body. For this same person, Oliva argues, homosexual acts are inherently good. Oliva is also a prominent member of the Leonine Commission. This informs us that homosexuals and homosexualists control the Dominican Order at the very highest international levels. It also tells us that these same Homo-Dominicans are defended and supported by Homo-Romans in the Vatican.  



"Fr". Richard Woods O.P. "Another Kind of Love". 

Nor should all homosexual behaviour be indiscriminately condemned in advance as invariably and gravely sinful without much further and more careful study of scripture as well as the many varieties of homosexual experience, attitudes, and activities.” (p. 14).





"Fr." Gareth Moore O.P. "A Question of truth: Christianity and Homosexuality"

“If we summarize the results of our investigation, the conclusions are simple to state and substantiate the thesis put forward in the preface: if we look for cogent biblical or natural-law arguments against homosexual relationships and acts in general, we will not find them: there aren’t any. There are plenty which look faithful to Scripture and compelling in their logic, but none which actually are (p. 282)





"Fr". Adriano Oliva  O.P. "Love: A supportive reading of Aquinas". 

We want to offer new answers to the questions posed today by the pastoral care of homosexual persons. The present study, which may appear anachronistic in style, is intended to show that a welcome change from the Magisterium concerning homosexuality and the exercise of sexuality by homosexual couples not only corresponds to current anthropological, theological and exegetical research, but also to the development of an especially Thomistic theological tradition.

Does the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests support homosexual activity?



New Ways Ministry is a militant homosexualist organization that supports homosexual activity. What is homosexual activity? I suggest readers visit Joseph Sciambra's excellent website to learn more about the tragedy of the homosexual lifestyle, and learn about the horrible and perverted things men and women do to each other to seek ever illusive love. In truth homosexual people are not "gay", but the saddest of people. Homosexual acts are blasphemous caricatures of the unitive love of the Holy Trinity, whose love is reflected in the Union of Christ and His Church; this, in turn, being reflected in the union between husband and wife.

One then wonders why the Association of US Catholic Priests would endorse such an evil organization? Are these men fools? Are they unaware that New Ways Ministry endorses homosexual behaviour? Or, are they heavily infiltrated with militant homosexuals themselves? Let readers discern. 

I present here a screenshot of various prominent "Catholic" Orders and organizations that are endorse New Ways Ministry. What does this mean? Logically, it means these Orders and organizations support New Ways Ministry in its promoting of homosexual activity. 

Readers will notice the plethora of convents in favour of homosexuality. This then begs the question: are these nuns' "convents" covens of lesbianism? 

One hardly can conceive of pious, sexually normal nuns openly supporting homosexuality. So yes, it would not be unreasonable for readers to conclude these women are lesbians; heavily infiltrated by lesbians, controlled by lesbians. One then wonders why a sexually normal nun would wish to remain in an Order dominated by lesbians.

What of the male religious Orders and organizations? Again, if readers conclude that they are heavily homosexual, controlled by homosexuals, it would be a reasonable set of conclusions. Do you know any pious Catholic priest who supports homosexual activity? Do you know any pious priest who, though not himself a homosexual, supports and excuses homosexuality to the degree that he belongs to an organization that endorses homosexual activity?

Perhaps in some or even many cases it comes down to the upscale, jet-setting lifestyle these Orders and people maintain. Leaving so-called religious life and working in the real world is not what these men and women consider an option. 

"To work I am not able, to beg I am ashamed". Luke 16:3. 

The Homosexual takeover of the Jesuits

Homosexual propaganda promoted by Jesuits 

Most readers are aware that there is a major homosexual infiltration crisis in the clergy. Not all readers are aware that the Jesuit Order too has been infiltrated. However, probably most readers are not aware that the homosexual takeover is so complete that even Jesuit seminarians, openly promote homosexuality on official Jesuit websites. This is only possible because the Jesuit seminaries are controlled by homosexuals, who bring bring younger practitioners of sodomy in. This is only possible because the Roman authorities do not move against the Jesuit authorities because at best they are blackmailed, or they are themselves homosexuals and/or Freemasons. Let not Catholics be naive dreamers to think Rome is populated with pious, holy churchmen. 

Readers may wish to know that the below mentioned Jason Welle S.J., was not ordained in 2016, due to pressure from the laity. It is not known if the Jesuits will ordain him this year, but Welle remains in active parish service in California as a deacon. 


 From the blog, The Millennial Cardinal: 

The Jesuit Post is another notorious pro-sodomite publication. It regularly publishes pro-homosexual propaganda. Recently it published two articles by a Jesuit Scholastic (meaning this man is studying to be ordained as a Jesuit priest) Jason Welle,  S. J. They may be read here and here. 
Welle wrote an article for the Jesuit Post supporting sodomy; supporting intrinsically evil acts. Supporting one of the four sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance. Yet, Welle is going to be ordained (his ordination, if it followed the norms laid down according to law, would be valid, but it certainly would be illicit. c.f. Canon 1040. 2 ” His Ordinand would also, if he knew of Welle’s position, would objectively commit a grave mortal sin in ordaining him c.f. canon 1050. 3).
Fitzmaurice with two practicing homosexuals
Welle also interviewed an Arthur Fitzmaurice. From what can be gathered Fitzmaurice is an open supporter of sodomy. On his Facebook page he poses with two men who are going to be “married”. Is this Catholic? Is this the type of man that a candidate for the priesthood should consult on how to lovingly draw these poor men and women baxck to the Faith, to Confession, to repentance?

Has the Toronto Oratory lost its Way?


A commentator to this blog, informed us that the Oratory of St. Philip Neri in Toronto has invited Fr. Mongeau S.J., as "guest preacher" for the Solemn Latin Mass for St. Philip's Day. 

This is, to put it mildly, very, very strange. I shall leave it to readers to draw their own conclusions. I shall only make one thing clear: St. Philip would not invite a priest to preach at his church who had been dressing in "liturgical" garb that promoted homosexuality, who staged Masses whose "antecedent" was the "Dignity Mass" that excused and pandered to homosexuality. 

He would not be inviting a priest to preach at his church who would display the "gay" Rainbow flag: a symbol of so-called "liberation", a symbol of revolt against Christ, a symbol of sexual perversion and depravity. 

The great St. Peter Damian, Doctor of the Church and Archbishop of Milan, (1007-1072) describes in his "The Book of Gomorrah" - in which he combatted homosexual infiltration into the clergy - the spiritual, psychological and moral consequences of this abominable vice:

"Truly, this vice is never to be compared with any other vice because it surpasses the enormity of all vices. Without fail it brings death to the body, and destruction to the soil. It pollutes the flesh and extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust. It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind...it opens up hell and closes the gates of paradise....  
 It defiles everything, stains everything, pollutes everything. And as for itself, it permits nothing pure, nothing clean, nothing other than filth. ..
 It becomes unmindful of God and even forgetful of itself...  
This plague undermines the foundation of faith, weakens the strength of hope, destroys the bond of charity; it takes away justice, subverts fortitude, banishes temperance, blunts the keenness of prudence. 
And what more should I say since it expels the whole host of the virtues from the chamber of the human heart and introduces every barbarous vice as if the bolts of the doors were pulled out".
