What doth it profit a man to attend Latin Masses, but not live like the Good Samaritan?

Who Ever Thought that COVID-19 would EXPOSE the Churchmen as supporting a "PREFERENTIAL OPTION FOR THE RICH" ? Yes, THE RICH !!!

God is constantly writing straight with crooked lines. He has used COVID-19 to EXPOSE the fear of death that gripped the churchmen in March. Most went into hiding and have barely been seen since. God also exposed them as not only misbehaving cowards, but as lackeys, if not co-conspirators with many an anti-Christian politician. The silence, if not collaboration with grossly incompetant  politicians imposing authoritarian months long lock downs is truly repugnant. But the greatest sin of these men has been their eagerness to fall over each other in locking up the churches, whilst remaining silent regarding the rank hypocrisy and anti-Christian hatred of politicians who kept open abortion mills, gambling casinos, liquor stores, pot shops etc. during the lock downs. Some churchmen imposed even more draconian measures on their congregations than openly godless politicians and public health officials.

Now God is using COVID to EXPOSE the fraud of the claim that these churchmen love and care for the poor. Before we continue, can you think of a churchman who has spoken out against the brutal lock downs (excluding Archbishop Vigano and his co-signatories of his Open Letter)?

In Toronto the "lock downs" have benefited the rich, hurt the poor

The brutal worldwide imposition of lock downs has ripped at least 10% out of many economies. This has been particularly oppressive on the poor: not only economically, but psychologically and physically. Sane voices, such as Drs. Scott Atlas of Stanford, and Karol Sikora, one of Britain's leading oncologists, have been ringing alarm bells for weeks, if not months, of the irreparable harm these lock downs are inflicting.

The Catholic Church, at one time the traditional defender and voice of the poor, has betrayed them, and Her "leaders" have been all but absent in this debate. If not absent, in many cases in actual  lockstep with the "lock downers" and prophets of doom (remember how John XXIII warned us about these people, to avoid them?!).

The stark reality of lock downs for the vast majority of the world's population is now belatedly beginning to receive some attention in the secular media. Unlike far, far too bishops, these people are not waited on by servants, live in large houses, nay mansions, if not Renaissance palaces. The world's poor do not tread marble halls, nor have their French damask curtains drawn back by doting courtiers as they arise.

No, their lot is to be locked up in hovels, de facto rabbit hatches, waiting for a meager State cheque that barely cover their food and rent. They do not partake of "white collar welfare", where church "employees" draw government stipends courtesy of the trick of having churches registered as not-for-profit organizations. Yes, along with large corporations, these decadent churchmen have been taking millions (Canada), in some cases (as in the USA) over a billion. It really is all very nauseating...

No doubt their are still some bishops who have the Faith, but are just simply paralyzed, having been selected precisely because of their lack of leadership skills. May they obtain the courage to either stand up, or resign.

Let us now juxtapose the official teaching of the Church, with the reality of lock down, which these same churchmen support.

"The Church's love for the poor . . . is a part of her constant tradition." This love is inspired by the Gospel of the Beatitudes, of the poverty of Jesus, and of his concern for the poor. . . . "Those who are oppressed by poverty are the object of a preferential love on the part of the Church which, since her origin and in spite of the failings of many of her members, has not ceased to work for their relief, defense, and liberation." Catechism of the Catholic Church 2444, 2448.

Have they sold off some of their riches? Their art collections?

Have they cashed out their bonds, stocks?

Have they sold some of the billions in real estate?

125 Days and Counting on the Archdiocese of Toronto's Holy Communion "Ban"

Catholics praying outside a CLOSED Church in communist China

Today marks 125 days since the Archdiocese of Toronto banned the reception of Holy Communion according to ordinary form. Its canonical illegality has been much discussed, and this post is but a reminder and a prediction.

A Reminder
On March 17, 2020 all Masses were banned in the Archdiocese. From downtown Toronto to little hamlets, two hours drive and more away, every church was boarded up. A small, but dynamic group of Christians during this time began to petition the Ontario government to reopen churches. It is VERY significant that the Archdiocese of Toronto was NOT part of this group.

When churches were reopened with limited capacity, Toronto Public Health (under the authority of Toronto City Council, via the Toronto Board of Health) officials de facto overthrew (via threats of church closure) the local supreme authority in the Catholic Church (Cardinal Collins) and have assumed control over Catholic religious/liturgical practice by unconstitutionally encroaching on religious practice and "banning" Holy Communion on the tongue.

A Prediction: We are not going to see Toronto Public Health's illegal edict lifted until a vaccine or vaccines are produced. This effectively means that many of us will not be able to fulfill our Easter Duty. We are absolved of this Duty, as the pastors of the Church are bound by the Law of the Church to give Holy Communion to any Catholic in the State of Grace who requests it. I hope I am wrong in my prediction, but don't think I will be. It may well be that some of us will not be able to receive Holy Communion for well over a year...perhaps even longer.

The 26 Martyrs of Japan are examples of fidelity to Christ

Please pray for Cardinal Collins, our bishops, priests that they stand up for Christ, His Church, and the God-given rights of Catholics.

Please also pray for those Christians who are not in full unity with the See of Peter, but are standing up for Christ. Russian Orthodox Archbishop Kirill of San Francisco wrote a powerful Letter to Governor Gavin Newsom stating that his new violent measures against religion were eerily similar to those of the Soviet Union.

The Archbishop noted that Newsom's actions are "...open discrimination, hypocrisy and the infringement of our religious rights, prompting us to recall the era of godless persecutions in the USSR". Newsom has yet to reply to the Archbishop. Has your bishop taken a stand?

Another interesting case is that of "Pastor" John MacArthur of Sun Valley, California who defied the draconian measures of Newsom last Sunday and kept his church open. He faces the real possibility of going to jail. He is 81 years of age. MacArthur certainly is a heretic, but at least he believes enough in the Divinity of Our Lord to stand against an unjust edict that violates Christ's Law. Has your bishop shown faith in Our Lord's Divinity to stand publicly against unjust edicts, to even risk going to jail?

We, as Catholics must take as our models the martyrs, the defenders of the Faith. Let us recall the Japanese Catholics, who, without priests and under severe persecution from the State held the Faith for hundreds of years. They must be our example.

Watch the "BANNED: video "FRONTLINE DOCTORS ON HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE" right here! We do NOT censor scientific debate

Here is the "banned" video

Showing this video does not mean that I agree with everything in it. I do NOT. There is at present absolutely NO evidence that hydroxychloroquine heals from COVID-19. Evidence is emerging that it may work as a prophylactic and may prevent the development of  COVID in EARLY stages. But that is NOT a cure.

Stella Emmanuel detracted from the quality of the video by claiming that she has "cured" over 300 COVID patients. Science demands evidence. You cannot just make a claim. She must produce the evidence. Indeed, if this combination was a cure do we not think that Pfizer would be out there promoting the Z-Pac for all as a prophylactic?

For all this should the video be BANNED? Absolutely not.

In doing so, Youtube only furthers the politicization of the virus, and exacerbates irrationality, fear, conflict, and lack of critical thinking.

On the other hand, perhaps they pulled it for those VERY REASONS?

Meanwhile don't forget: "All publications TO BE CLEARED through this office."

And while "they" were busy banning the video, "they" took down the "America's Frontline Doctors" website.

Star Trek and Coronavirus? Was the Klingon Totalitarian System the Inspiration for Worldwide Lockdowns?

Reality can be stranger than fiction, even science fiction. Was the attempted military takeover of the planet Organia, by the totalitarian Klingon Empire in the Star Trek episode, "Errand of Mercy", a source of inspiration for governments in imposing dystopian worldwide lock downs and civil liberty violations?

The following quotations, so eerily familiar, are actually not drawn from your public health official, politician, or media mouthpiece. They are quotations from Commander Kor, the Military Governor of Organia.

"...there are many rules and regulations..."

"Violation of the smallest will be  punished..."

"From this day on NO PUBLIC ASSEMBLAGES of more than THREE people."

"All publications TO BE CLEARED through this office."

"Neighbourhood CONTROLS will be established..."

"...a somewhat lengthy list of CRIMES against the State."

Protestants defend Catholics, whilst Bishops remain SILENT

Communist rioters in Portland, Oregon

We are living in revolutionary times. In the United States, as I have written before, a communist revolution is underway. This revolution has been simmering for decades. It is Jacobin inspired that seeks the complete destruction of Christianity. The hidden hand that controls this movement is very much aware that the first enemy is the Catholic Church. And when they have finished with the Catholic Church....

It is tragic, but not surprising that the American Catholic Hierarchy has distinguished itself by a near virtual silence on the demonically inspired attacks on Catholic churches and Statues.

But not all are silent. Here we present two separated brethren who are strongly exposing and denouncing these vicious attacks.

A stray thought on the Bishops' response to the coronavirus pandemic

Looking over Barona's posts for the last month and a bit, this writer wonders if the pandemic had happened in the 1940s, would the local Bishops have stood firm against the government instead of turning tail and running in the opposite direction?

Just a stray thought.

By their fruits ye shall know them.

Public Health Officials: Sex Perverts? "make it a little kinky....masturbate together..."

B.C Health promoting every possible perversion

Whilst essential medical care for cancer and cardio illnesses have been cancelled since March (which will lead to very serious spikes in premature deaths, as has been honestly conceded in other countries), with millions unemployed, suicide and psychological illnesses soaring, public health officials in the United States and Canada (and I am sure all over the "West") are busy telling their citizens to engage in masturbation,  sodomy, the use of "glory holes", and engage in various other sexual perversions. No surprise that these people do not consider the worship of God as "essential". To them, man is merely a lustful brute with no soul, no humanity.

Here we present "advice" from New York City, Toronto, British Columbia (see above)/Vancouver, and even Ottawa's advice for prostitutes.

New Yorkers are encouraged to engage in  "...sexting, subscription-based fan platforms, sexy Zoom parties...make it a little kinky...masturbate together...walls that allow sexual contact while preventing close face to face contact...". NYC Public Health also has the following advice:" Consider getting a swab or saliva test for COVID-19 on a more frequent basis (monthly or within five to seven days of a hookup)".

Torontonians are told: "consensual sex can...help pass the time when isolated indoors..."."...if you usually meet partners online, are polyamorous consider video dating, sexting, or chat rooms...". Toronto Public Health adds: "ABORTION CLINICS REMAIN OPEN IN TORONTO...". Of course they do! But churches were closed.....

Prostitutes in Ottawa are being told: "...you must do what you can to stay safe and keep working...". But you can catch COVID "If your trick is sick". However, "...have your date wash their hands and wear a mask...consider implementing a no-kissing with your clients."

Masturbation is being pushed in a big way. A so-called psychologist has even written: "...forward-thinking clergy, healthcare professionals, and educators even advise modern parents to encourage their children to do so (typically in private), in the hope of raising sexually healthy adolescent...". 

Are you still in doubt that these same people threatened our weak and ineffectual religious leaders? Are you still in doubt that they would like to see our churches closed? And let us be very honest - permanently (they would like to see Christianity disappear, as Christian morality is at complete odds with their materialist conception of life, which they openly oppose).
Friends, how do you think God views all of this?

Where there is NO repentance, NO confession of SIN, NO public acts of reparation, the wrath of God will be poured out. God will NOT be mocked.

We must NOT wait for our "leaders", our Pope, our bishops, our politicians. Leadership, if it was to come, would have come already. These men are SILENT.

We must take the lead now. We must reform our lives, confess our sins, repent, and make acts of reparation.

Toronto Public Health's attack on Religious Freedom: "SUSPEND all communion related activities..."

We have written and commented on the illegal and unconstitutional activities of Toronto Public Health (itself an appendage of the Board of Health, as appointed by the leftist Toronto City Council). Toronto Public Health does not have the authority to impose a ban on Holy Communion. In fact, its own Guidelines refer back to the Guidelines issued by Ontario Public Health (which it, in turn must be interpreted according the Law, O. Reg. 52/20). The Law is specific: 

Indoor wedding, funeral or religious service, rite or ceremony

6. (1) This section applies with respect to gatherings for the purposes of a wedding, a funeral or a religious service, rite or ceremony if the gathering is held in a building or structure other than a private dwelling.

(2) Clause 2 (1) (c) does not apply to a person who attends a gathering to which this section applies if the following conditions are met:

1. The persons conducting the wedding, funeral, service, rite or ceremony must ensure that the number of persons occupying any room in the building or structure while attending the gathering does not exceed 30 per cent of the capacity of the particular room.

2. All persons attending the gathering must remain at least two metres apart from each other and from persons conducting the wedding, funeral, service, rite or ceremony unless they are members of the same household.

3. The persons conducting the wedding, funeral, service, rite or ceremony must ensure that it is conducted in compliance with the advice, recommendations and instructions of public health officials, including any advice, recommendations or instructions on physical distancing, cleaning or disinfecting.

4. The persons conducting the wedding, funeral, service, rite or ceremony must ensure that any washrooms that have been made available to persons attending the gathering are cleaned and disinfected as frequently as is necessary to maintain a sanitary environment.

There is NO mention of Holy Communion. Public health officials are given authority ONLY over "physical distancing, cleaning or disinfecting". In fact, we know this is true as other jurisdictions outside of Toronto are distributing Holy Communion in the traditional manner and they are NOT being raided by the police. It is UNCONSTITUTIONAL for any government, or a proxy bureaucrat to change, alter, or in any way revise religious rites, as they pertain to religious practice. The government may legislate that "EXIT" signs must be placed in buildings that have public access (such as churches, mosques, temples and synagogues) but they NO RIGHT to directly or indirectly interfere, obstruct or change (either in addition or detraction) in ANY manner with the religious rites themselves. Ontarians are blessed with Premier Doug Ford who is neither an anti-Christian or anti-religious bigot. 

Nonetheless, the Ontario Law has not incommoded rogue bureaucrats, such as those from Toronto Public Health, from using psychological intimidation and threats of closure against local Churches. They have their guns specifically aimed at Latin-Rite Catholics and the Greek Orthodox. Cardinal Collins himself said on video that he was BULLIED by Toronto Public Health into banning reception of Holy Communion in the normal manner (that is, on the tongue). 

The Russian Orthodox Archbishop of San Francisco has denounced this persecution of religion that is now worldwide, (such as the horrors who govern California, Illinois, and Michigan) comparing it to Soviet-era oppression and tactics. How tragic that the vast majority of Catholic bishops have remained silent. Alas, we know that they are silent as they are taking billions from Caesar. They have been joined by "rapture" Darbyite sects who have long ago betrayed Jesus Christ.

Once again, let there be no mistake. The City of Toronto issued a "ban", but also knew that its ban could easily be litigated as illegal. Therein lies the rub. Within this context of a very secular city, a very hard-left dominated City Council, an aggressive media that is virulently anti-Christian, the Cardinal decided to dispense with defending religious liberty and took the now proverbial knee. Bowing to their pressure, he stripped Catholics of their rights, and set a dangerous precedent for State meddling in religious ceremonies. 

What could be next? The State changing texts, State approved religious services in the interests of "public harmony and diversity"? Do not be naive into thinking it can't happen. Freedom of speech already does not exist in Canada, and freedom of religion is next.
