Video emerges of Justin Trudeau planning to use "hate" and "intolerance" as part of his Election Campaign from seven months ago

Justin Trudeau at the OECTA March AGM, where he revealed the election will be about smearing political opponents as "haters" 

The recent cries of alleged "hate", "intolerance", "divisiveness" etc., that Justin Trudeau and his media sycophants have been pushing during the election campaign was actually planned a long time ago. This is all part of a long-term strategy to sling mud and falsehoods on political opponents to steal an election through lies and deception. 

In March of this year, at the AGM of the Ontario Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA), Trudeau (before an adoring audience of militant, hard-left activists masquerading as "Catholic teachers") outlined how name-calling and the smearing of others would be at the core of the Liberal Election platform. 





So here we are, seven months later, and with seeming perfect timing, Trudeau and his allies in the shameless, monolithic media (CBC, CTV, and Global) all begin a strident cry of "hate" and "intolerance". Truly disgusting.

There are no coincidences in politics, just carefully laid plans. However, even the best plan can go awry. Videos uploaded to the internet can backfire. 

Watch this video and see this dangerous, divisive narcissist in action. 

Readers may wonder how is it possible for "Catholic" teachers to applaud and support such an open enemy of Christian morality? That disturbing question will be dealt with in another post.

How the Catholic Church in Canada has enabled Justin Trudeau

Justin Trudeau did not come out as a militant supporter of the "LGBT" agenda last week. He did not come out as a rabid abortion advocate yesterday. Justin Trudeau did not come out as a strident euthanasia supporter this morning. He did not come out as promoter of transvestites a minute ago. 

No, Trudeau openly, aggressively, advocated for all these evils as an MP, as Liberal Leader and as Prime Minister. In other words, for years. 

Yet these moral crimes did not seemingly incommode clerics in any way. 

Who can forget this scandalous Tweet?


Or these blasphemous words written by Rosica in The Globe and Mail (since scrubbed from the internet): 
"...we are taught where to find God...we can find Him in the bold, courageous leadership of a young Prime Minister..."

Trudeau may have been the darling of the rich and powerful clerical establishment, but his demonic agenda was fully grasped by Catholics.


The Vox at the blog, Vox Cantoris accurately described Trudeau in this manner back in March of 2016: 

Justin Trudeau is a pathetic man. He is an egoist and an arrogant despicable cretin who has betrayed his baptism...

Dear friends, pray that this wicked man be cast out from Office on October 21st.

Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian Readers


Psalm 137

(Of David.)
1
 
My heart’s thanks, Lord, for listening to the prayer I uttered; angels for my witnesses, I will sing of thy praise.
2
 
I bow down in worship towards thy sanctuary, praising thy name for thy mercy and faithfulness; thy own honour and thy pledged word thou hast vindicated for all the world to see.
3
 
To thee I appealed, and thou didst listen to me, didst fill my heart with courage.
4
 
All the kings of the earth, Lord, will praise thee now; were not thy promises made in their hearing?
5
 
Their song shall be of the Lord’s doings, how great is his renown,
6
 
the Lord, who is so high above us, yet looks with favour on the humble, looks on the proud too, but from far off.
7
 
Though affliction surround my path, thou dost preserve me; it is thy power that confronts my enemies’ malice, thy right hand that rescues me.
8
 
My purposes the Lord will yet speed; thy mercy, Lord, endures for ever, and wilt thou abandon us, the creatures of thy own hands?

The faithful cry to God during the Great Pan-Amazonian Synod

1
 
(A song. A psalm. Of the sons of Core. To the choir-master. Melody: Mahalat. For singing. A maskil. Of Heman the Ezrahite.)
2
 
Lord God, day and night I cry bitterly to thee;
3
 
let my prayer reach thy pre-sence, give audience to my entreaty,
4
 
for indeed my heart is full of trouble. My life sinks ever closer to the grave;
5
 
I count as one of those who go down into the abyss, like one powerless.
6
 
As well lie among the dead, men laid low in the grave, men thou rememberest no longer, cast away, now, from thy protecting hand.
7
 
Such is the place where thou hast laid me, in a deep pit where the dark waters swirl;
8
 
heavily thy anger weighs down on me, and thou dost overwhelm me with its full flood.
9
 
Thou hast estranged all my acquaintance from me, so that they treat me as a thing accursed; I lie in a prison whence there is no escape,
10
 
my eyes grow dim with tears. On thee I call, to thee stretch out my hands, each day that passes.
11
 
Not for the dead thy wonderful power is shewn; not for pale shadows to return and give thee thanks.
12
 
There in the grave, how shall they recount thy mercies; how shall they tell of thy faithfulness, now that life is gone?
13
 
How can there be talk of thy marvels in a world of darkness, of thy favour in a land where all is forgotten?
14
 
To prayer, Lord, fall I lustily; it shall reach thee, while there is yet time.
15
 
Why dost thou reject my plea, Lord, and turn thy face away from me?
16
 
Ever since youth, misery and mortal sickness have been my lot; wearily I have borne thy visitations;
17
 
I am overwhelmed with thy anger, dismayed by thy threats,
18
 
that still cut me off like a flood, all at once surrounding me.
19
 
Friends and neighbours gone, a world of shadows is all my company.

Do 'really good kids' sodomize another with a broom?

Readers of TCW may remember Barona's report this past November of seven students at St. Mike's College School here in Toronto arrested after a video surfaced of them sodomizing another student with a broom.

Well, we finally have an update on the case, courtesy of CBC News. However, there is one item I would like to draw your attention to.

Rachel Lichtman is representing one of the teens accused of the broom-sodomizing. When asked about the characters of the teens who were arrested, Lichtman said, "They're really good kids. They made mistakes, and they're taking responsibility for those mistakes."

Come again?

"They're really good kids."

Do "really good kids" pull down another boy's pants, and proceed to shove a broom handle up his anus on more than one occasion?

Do "really good kids" hold the same boy down and proceed to rip at his clothing, to the point where they rip apart his underwear?

Do "really good kids" laugh and jeer as this is going on?

Do "really good kids" film this?

No. "Really good kids" might accidentally put a baseball through a neighbour's window. "Really good kids" might do anything but assault another boy, anally rape him with a broom handle, and generally humiliate him in front of other boys. Those are not "really good kids." Those are children with malice in them, for that is exactly what sexual assault involves. Malice.

Malice that they proceeded to take out on an innocent boy. In a school which purportedly teaches its students "goodness, discipline and knowledge." Well, the first two were clearly not in any supply in that locker room. It makes me wonder what that school actually teaches.

Ms. Lichtman, you might want to consider your choice of words in the future, for they offend not only members of the general public, but also the victim who is so often forgotten in cases as these.

October 11th: Feast of the Maternity of the Mother of God

This feast commemorates the dignity of the Mary as Mother of God (Theotokos), the title of Mary ratified by the Council of Ephesus in 431 AD. The feast was first granted to the dioceses of Portugal and to Brasil and Algeria in 1751. In 1752 it was granted to the province of Venice, in 1778 to the kingdom of Naples and in 1807 to Tuscany.

Eighth Lesson from the Roman Breviary
Marvel at both these things, and choose whether to marvel most at the sublime condescension of the Son, or at the sublime dignity of Mary. Either is amazing, either marvellous. That God should obey this woman, is a lowliness without parallel; that this woman should rule over God, an exaltation without match. In praise of virgins, and of virgins only, is it sung that “These are they which follow the Lamb wherever He goes” (Apocalypse xiv. 4). Of what praise then think you that she must be worthy who even leads the Lamb. “O man, learn to obey. O earth, learn to submit. O dust, learn to keep down. It is of your Maker that the Evangelist said: ‘And He was subject to them.’ Blush, O proud ashes! God humbles Himself; and you exalt yourself? God is subject to men; and will you, by striving to rule over men, set yourself before your Maker?
O happy Mary, lowly and virgin; and wondrous virginity, which motherhood destroyed not, but exalted; and wondrous lowliness, which the fruitful virginity took not away, but ennobled; and wondrous motherhood, which was both virgin and lowly. Which of them is not wondrous? which of them is not unexampled, and which of them does not stand alone? The wonder would be if you were not puzzled at which to wonder most — motherhood in a virgin, or virginity in a mother; a motherhood so exalted, or lowliness in such exaltation. But indeed more marvellous than any one of these things is the combination of them all, and without all comparison, it is more excellent and more blessed to have received them all, than to have received any one of them alone. What wonder is it that God, of Whom we see and read, that “He is wonderful in His holy places” (Psalm lxvii. 36), should have shown Himself wonderful in His Mother? O you that be married, honour this incorruption in corruptible flesh; O, holy maidens, gaze in wonder at motherhood in a maid; O, all mankind, take pattern by the lowliness of the Mother of God.
O God, who willed that your Word should take flesh at the message of an angel in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary, grant to us, we beseech you, that we who believe her to be indeed the Mother of God may be aided by her intercession with you. Through the same our Lord Jesus Christ your Son, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Where is the indignation?

Last week, a rather disturbing "tree-planting ceremony" was observed in the Vatican Gardens.

There is no need for me to reiterate what happened. I will let Vox Cantoris supply the reader with the stark details. Vox is more to the point, anyway.

My concern here is captured in the title of this post: Where is the indignation?

It's certainly not lacking in the Catholic lay Faithful. I have already mentioned Vox, but Stefanie Nicholas, Steve Skojec, Laurence England and others have expressed their indignation at the event. Mahound's Paradise has authored a rather piercing commentary on the "incident." All of this, I should add, is righteous indignation, as it must be.

This righteous indignation is also not lacking in some parish priests. Father John Stone Melnick comes to mind. My own local priest has also admitted he has serious concerns about the business to me personally.

Rather, I am asking the question of Princes of the Church - be they Cardinal or Bishop.

Where is your indignation? Where on Earth is it?

Look, I understand it is a bad time for you all, those of you who aren't minions of the man in the papal chair. I know there are some who are rolling their eyes at everything Pope Bergoglio is doing, turning the head aside and focusing on salvaging what little remains of the Faith in their dioceses.

I understand that. The faithful would be without a shepherd if you stood up forcefully against the man in the papal chair.

But is solemn silence really the way to go about it? I mean, not even a reminder that we are to follow the 1st commandment?

We lay faithful are just a touch tired of the resilient silence. A peep from you once in a while would be nice.

Just so we know we're not alone in this fight.


An Offer of Reparation for the Offences done to the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio

Yesterday, as described by Vox Cantoris and others, it appears that Pope Bergoglio denied that Jesus was God, as given in an interview with the atheist Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari.

Scalfari is notorious for not taking any notes during his interviews with the man in the papal chair. As with the incident last year that the Pope denied Hell, he is accused of making things up in this incident. Yet Scalfari does not seem to bother with coming clean in light of such accusations, and nor does the Pope. He did not do so last year, and it seems as though this will not happen again. I also note that this is a repeat incident. If the last incident was so disastrous, why are we seeing it happen again? These are serious questions we must ask ourselves.

Thus, I am inclined to believe the journalist over the Vicar. I believe an atheist over a Christian. It is truly a sad state of affairs.

There is much I could ask the Pope in light of such a serious accusation. Many have already done so. He has been asked to either affirm his belief in Jesus as God or call Scalfari out for putting words in his mouth. He has been asked to publicly prostrate himself before the Blessed Sacrament, recite the Nicene Creed and the Te Deum; whip himself and wear a hair shirt as part of his public penance.

Much has been asked of the man in the papal chair. But - and I wonder how many would agree with me on this - I am disinclined to believe he would listen to these requests. His track record proves he's not too serious on assuaging the concerns of the faithful.

Thus, charity demands we do something for the man instead of asking those things of him he will not do. No, his sin is not our own sin, but we faithful have to live with the reality of having a man in charge whose belief in the basic tenets of the Faith is questionable.

So, Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio, this act of reparation for the offences done to the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ is for you, for your offences, offences that have caused great scandal and confusion to your flock. The flock assigned to you by virtue of your office as Pope. May you one day repent of your deeds.
O sweet Jesus, Whose overflowing charity for me is requited by so much forgetfulness, negligence and contempt, behold us prostrate before Your altar (in Your presence) eager to repair by a special act of homage the cruel indifference and injuries, to which Your loving Heart is everywhere subject.
Mindful alas! that we ourselves have had a share in such great indignities, which we now deplore from the depths of our hearts, we humbly ask Your pardon and declare our readiness to atone by voluntary expiation not only for our own personal offenses, but also for the sins of those, who, straying far from the path of salvation, refuse in their obstinate infidelity to follow You, their Shepherd and Leader, or, renouncing the vows of their baptism, have cast off the sweet yoke of Your Law.
We are now resolved to expiate each and every deplorable outrage committed against You; we are determined to make amends for the manifold offenses against Christian modesty in unbecoming dress and behavior, for all the foul seductions laid to ensnare the feet of the innocent, for the frequent violations of Sundays and holidays, and the shocking blasphemies uttered against You and Your Saints.
We wish also to make amends for the insults to which Your Vicar on earth and Your priest are subjected, for the profanation, by conscious neglect or terrible acts of sacrilege, of the very Sacrament of Your Divine Love; and lastly for the public crimes of nations who resist the rights and teaching authority of the Church which You have founded.
Would, O divine Jesus, we were able to wash away such abominations with our blood. We now offer, in reparation for these violations of Your divine honor, the satisfaction You once made to Your eternal Father on the cross and which You continue to renews daily on our altars; we offer it in union with the acts of atonement of Your Virgin Mother and all the Saints and of the pious faithful on earth; and we sincerely promise to make recompense, as far as we can with the help of Your grace, for all neglect of Your great love and for the sins we and others have committed in the past.
Henceforth we will live a life of unwavering faith, of purity of conduct, of perfect observance of the precepts of the gospel and especially that of charity. We promise to the best of our power to prevent others from offending You and to bring as many as possible to follow You.
O loving Jesus, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our model in reparation, deign to receive the voluntary offering we make of this act of expiation; and by the crowning gift of perseverance keep us faithful unto death in our duty and the allegiance we owe to You, so that we may one day come to that happy home, where You with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, God, world without end. Amen.
