There is NO Triduum for you in the Archdiocese of Toronto

A near-empty St. Michael's Cathedral 

The Triduum will soon be upon us but Catholics need to be aware that ONLY 15% capacity is "allowed" [by decree of the Absolutist State] into churches. The remaining 85% will NOT be able to attend.  That means that the VAST majority of Catholics will NOT be able to Attend Holy Thursday nor the Easter Vigil [liturgically THE most important Sacred Rite of the entire liturgical year]. The Sacred Rites are "verboten" for you. 

Let us not be fooled. The lifting of the 10 people per church limit to this ridiculous 15% is NOT a victory for the Catholic Church at all. In fact, it is a defeat, it is surrender, it is giving unto Ceasar what is God's. It is surrender to totalitarianism.

We need to ask ourselves: what concessions were surrendered by the Church for the great "privilege" of being "allowed" a 15% capacity? Was it - as we already know - to transform the church into a propaganda pulpit for emergency use "vaccines", most actually gene therapies? We already know the Church in Canada was receiving millions from the Absolutist State to pay/top up the salaries of its "employees". The last time I checked the Bible and the Catechism the Church was the Body of Christ, NOT a "corporation", as these local structures have been set up to be. It was quite evident that the Archdiocesan videos of  Cardinal Collins and his handlers were very much within the context of secular concerns, and not the preservation of the Faith, the return of the Mass, the Sacraments, the end of religious discrimination. 

To his "credit", the Cardinal did wring his hands in despair, admitting that the State had taken over the running of the Church, that "virtuous" public health officials had threatened to shut down ALL the Sacraments if the Cardinal did not obey. To his "discredit", the Cardinal surrendered. As such, we must be forthright: the liturgical rites in the Archdiocese of Toronto are under the control of the Absolutist State. Let that sink in. So we have nothing to be joyful over, no politician, or churchman to thank. And do not think for a moment that the State has noticed that Catholics have quietly acquiesced to the 15%. And do not be surprised if "they" try to close the churches again. 

Abortion mills, liquor stores wide open: Churches locked up with churchmen SILENT 

I have stated on a number of occasions that Cardinal Collins should inform the Premier that the churches are reopening. If the Premier does not like it, he can always meet the Cardinal with police to handcuff and take the Cardinal away. Call his bluff. I think what the Cardinal fears more is the threats from his handlers: there could be implications for the tax status, monies for the corporate "Church Inc." and "employees", and payoffs will be cut off.


Besides rebuffing his "corporate church" handlers, the Cardinal in reopening the churches would also have to face an onslaught from the Toronto globalist elitists attack via corporate and social media that would crucify him and portray him as a murderer, a heartless man who wishes to send millions to their deaths at the hands of Covid (though of course, these very same people who claim to be so concerned with life glorify the murder of unborn children as a "human right". Let that pack of lies and hypocrisy sink in). But suffering attacks from the "corporate church" establishment and the downtown elites is really is a small price to pay to remain loyal to Jesus Christ. Isn't it? St. John Fisher thought so. And he wasn't just going to be bullied, mocked, or "cancelled"; he had his head chopped off. 

One final question: why have the churchmen across Canada remained silent on the disgusting jailing of James Coates in Alberta for keeping his little church open? Were they threatened with losing tax-exempt status? Or, as I suspect, they could not care less about this brave Christian family man. Though a separated brother, he believes in the great Catholic Truth of Our Lord's Divinity enough that he will NOT take the knee to the Absolutist State. Unlike the churchmen who not only prostrate themselves shamefully before Ceasar but even sell, nay prostitute the very Church to Ceasar for filthy lucre. No obedience, no money. And the hook is in deeply; the addiction to money profound. Add to that the virus of modernist infection amongst clergy and faithful, and you have a catastrophe in the making. 

The downtown "Toronto religion" of the elites 

But let us rejoice! Our Lord is in total control of His Church and the World. He writes straight with crooked lines, just as He did 2000 years ago when He allowed the Jews to seize him in the Garden, falsely condemn Him, and cajole the Romans to crucify Him. God was using the faithless Jews, the pagan Romans, though they were fighting against Him. Caiaphas himself prophesied even whilst he was orchestrating the greatest crime in history. Such is the power and glory of God.

Cardinal Collins, do you still have those portraits up of Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More? Call upon them for the courage to stand up to the Absolutist State that rages against Christ and His Church.

Friends, have a Blessed Palm Sunday.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY ~ Today marks ONE YEAR when the Archdiocese of Toronto rendered unto Caesar what was God's


So it was, that ONE YEAR ago to the very day that we heard the terrible news that EVERY church in the Archdiocese of Toronto was ordered closed. Even tiny churches in hamlets hours north of the city were boarded up. Liquor, beer, drugs, and abortion continued, but there was NO MASS, and now, NO PRAYER, NO ADORATION. We were thrown out of our churches by our pastors, who remained SILENT on the obscene incongruity of abortion continuing apace whilst the churches were locked tight. To THIS day our pastors remain silent; acquiescent pawns of the Absolutist State. 


As such, we call upon all Catholics to make a Visit to the Blessed Sacrament before Easter to pray in reparation for the blasphemies and outrages committed by our hierarchy and priests in abandoning Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament.


Since that frightful day we have seen churches boarded up for months on end, the surrender of the Sacred Liturgy to the State, outrageous violations of our rights to publicly worship God, and finally, the local Church being prostituted to Caesar as a "propaganda pulpit" for the pushing of abortion-linked gene therapies on an entire population. 

St. John Fisher, pray for us

All ye holy Martyrs of England and Wales, pray for us

St. Joseph's Day ~ "let us go forward in courage under his protection"


St. Joseph, Patron of Canada
March 19th is one of the most special days in the Church in Canada. It marks that day on which we celebrate our Patron saint. Most of the country, sadly, will ignore him. Let us not. May St. Joseph bless each and every one of you.

St. Joseph's Oratory. Montreal

  St. Joseph was just, he was immersed in the Word of God, written, transmitted in the wisdom of his people, and precisely in this way was prepared and called to know the Incarnate Word - the Word who came among us as a man - and predestined to care for, to protect this Incarnate Word; this remains his mission forever: to care for the Holy Church and Our Lord. We entrust ourselves in this moment to his care, we pray that he help us in our humble service. We go forward in courage under this protection.

Cardinal Collins issues statement to TCDSB re: Jody Maillet

With credit to LifeSiteNews, Toronto Catholic Witness has learned Toronto's Cardinal Collins has issued a statement in support of the recent remarks made by Mr. Jody Maillet about the Toronto Catholic District School Board's commitment to fly the Pride flag this June.

The statement is below in italics. Given that I am uncomfortable with making comments on the Cardinal's character and actions at this time, Barona has asked me to pass on his own commentary, which we are also including in red. As ever, readers are free to draw their own conclusions.

"Learning that remarks at a recent meeting of the Toronto Catholic District School Board, Mr. Maillet, have caused criticism, the Archdiocese of Toronto has reviewed a transcript of Mr. Maillet's presentation. His remarks and the context of his statement have been misquoted or taken out of context.

In fact, Mr. Maillet has correctly expressed Catholic moral teaching, quoting the Catechism of the Catholic Church. He suggested the help the sacraments offer to all who are struggling. Mr. Maillet reminded the trustees of their responsibility not to cause spiritual harm to the young people entrusted in their care, and referred to words in the bible where Jesus uses a powerful image concerning people who are in a position of responsibility for young people. Clearly, some people, perhaps unfamiliar with the Gospel, misunderstood the reference. It is simply incorrect to link the bible verse with violence quoted to any suggestion of violence against the homosexual community."

Barona: I take issue with the last two sentences in this statement. Here is where the Archdiocese is, to use an expression, scraping and bowing to their enemies. These people are very much familiar with the Gospels - not just the verse in question here - and reject them. Technically, the Archdiocese defends Mr. Maillet, but do NOT address the problem of widespread heresy and apostasy being openly taught and promoted by teaching staff across the Toronto Catholic school system. These staff members are supported officially by the Board. Further, where was the Archdiocese when the Board cast votes in favor of the "gay" pride parade? They were silent. My point is made.

Essentially, we can read the statement as: "Mr. Maillet is a good man who spoke correctly about Christian morals, but we are not going to do anything further than issue this statement."

What practical actions will the Archdiocese take following this? Nice words of support for Mr. Maillet are not enough. Why do they not call out the Board's evil vote? Why do they not insist that the Board implement Catholic faith and morals (as is their mandate), and that those Board members who dissent from the Faith be told to resign. If not then receiving a just penalty as envisaged under Canon Law.

What Cardinal Collins is NOT telling you about "Vaccines" ~ How the Catholic Church has been co-opted by the Pharma-Industrial Complex


Cardinal Collins moments after speaking beautifully about the Sacred Heart, then informed Catholics they should take (even if we place abortion to one side, WHICH WE CANNOT!), experimental drugs (the most questionable being the mRNA and DNA gene therapies) for a virus that is not a danger to 99%+ of the population. We have the CDC's word for it: 

The following is the Cardinal urging Catholics to take these experimental, abortion-linked drugs."I strongly urge EVERYONE to get vaccinated...", the Cardinal says.


Everyone, Your Eminence? Infants, children, youth, women with child, healthy people?



These are serious questions about these experimental gene therapies that CANNOT be scoffed off. Even more so, when there is a huge push to inject them into young, healthy organisms who are in no more danger from Covid than Influenza. Yet the Bishops of Canada are hell bent on coming out as Agents of the government and the Pharma-Industrial Complex. 


For a full report and analysis of the moral implications of Cardinal Collins' decision to promote these unethical and dangerous "vaccines", I urge all readers to visit Vox Cantoris. 

It should be noted that the betrayal of the pro-life movement is not just amongst Catholics, but also amongst the separated brethren. The following video, though focusing on leading American protestants who have betrayed the pro-life cause, applies equally to Cardinals and bishops who urge their faithful to take these abortion-linked gene therapies. Their questions could easily be asked of any bishop. Indeed, of the Pope himself.

 Cardinal Collins you can do better than being an apparatchnik for the Absolutist State. The very people you decry for pushing euthanasia on Canada, you trust with telling us the truth about not only Covid (which they are NOT), but also about these "safe" and "harmless" drugs (again, which they are NOT. Otherwise why has the Pharma-Industrial Complex had legislation passed excluding them from any legal liability in case of injury or death?).  C'mon, man!!

God "does not and cannot bless sin" ~ The Church declares that "same-sex unions" are against God's truth that is fully revealed in Christ the Lord

Responsum of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
to a dubium regarding the blessing of the unions of persons of the same sex


Does the Church have the power to give the blessing to unions of persons of the same sex?


Explanatory Note

In some ecclesial contexts, plans and proposals for blessings of unions of persons of the same sex are being advanced. Such projects are not infrequently motivated by a sincere desire to welcome and accompany homosexual persons, to whom are proposed paths of growth in faith, “so that those who manifest a homosexual orientation can receive the assistance they need to understand and fully carry out God’s will in their lives”[1].     

On such paths, listening to the word of God, prayer, participation in ecclesial liturgical actions and the exercise of charity can play an important role in sustaining the commitment to read one's own history and to adhere with freedom and responsibility to one's baptismal call, because “God loves every person and the Church does the same”[2], rejecting all unjust discrimination.

Among the liturgical actions of the Church, the sacramentals have a singular importance: “These are sacred signs that resemble the sacraments: they signify effects, particularly of a spiritual kind, which are obtained through the Church’s intercession. By them men are disposed to receive the chief effect of the sacraments, and various occasions of life are sanctified”[3]. The Catechism of the Catholic Church specifies, then, that “sacramentals do not confer the grace of the Holy Spirit in the way that the sacraments do, but by the Church’s prayer, they prepare us to receive grace and dispose us to cooperate with it” (#1670).

Blessings belong to the category of the sacramentals, whereby the Church “calls us to praise God, encourages us to implore his protection, and exhorts us to seek his mercy by our holiness of life”[4]. In addition, they “have been established as a kind of imitation of the sacraments, blessings are signs above all of spiritual effects that are achieved through the Church’s intercession”[5].

Consequently, in order to conform with the nature of sacramentals, when a blessing is invoked on particular human relationships, in addition to the right intention of those who participate, it is necessary that what is blessed be objectively and positively ordered to receive and express grace, according to the designs of God inscribed in creation, and fully revealed by Christ the Lord. Therefore, only those realities which are in themselves ordered to serve those ends are congruent with the essence of the blessing imparted by the Church.

For this reason, it is not licit to impart a blessing on relationships, or partnerships, even stable, that involve sexual activity outside of marriage (i.e., outside the indissoluble union of a man and a woman open in itself to the transmission of life), as is the case of the unions between persons of the same sex[6]. The presence in such relationships of positive elements, which are in themselves to be valued and appreciated, cannot justify these relationships and render them legitimate objects of an ecclesial blessing, since the positive elements exist within the context of a union not ordered to the Creator’s plan.

Furthermore, since blessings on persons are in relationship with the sacraments, the blessing of homosexual unions cannot be considered licit. This is because they would constitute a certain imitation or analogue of the nuptial blessing[7] invoked on the man and woman united in the sacrament of Matrimony, while in fact “there are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God’s plan for marriage and family”[8].

The declaration of the unlawfulness of blessings of unions between persons of the same sex is not therefore, and is not intended to be, a form of unjust discrimination, but rather a reminder of the truth of the liturgical rite and of the very nature of the sacramentals, as the Church understands them.

The Christian community and its Pastors are called to welcome with respect and sensitivity persons with homosexual inclinations, and will know how to find the most appropriate ways, consistent with Church teaching, to proclaim to them the Gospel in its fullness. At the same time, they should recognize the genuine nearness of the Church – which prays for them, accompanies them and shares their journey of Christian faith[9] – and  receive the teachings with sincere openness.

The answer to the proposed dubium does not preclude the blessings given to individual persons with homosexual inclinations[10], who manifest the will to live in fidelity to the revealed plans of God as proposed by Church teaching. Rather, it declares illicit any form of blessing that tends to acknowledge their unions as such. In this case, in fact, the blessing would manifest not the intention to entrust such individual persons to the protection and help of God, in the sense mentioned above, but to approve and encourage a choice and a way of life that cannot be recognized as objectively ordered to the revealed plans of God[11].

At the same time, the Church recalls that God Himself never ceases to bless each of His pilgrim children in this world, because for Him “we are more important to God than all of the sins that we can commit”[12].  But he does not and cannot bless sin: he blesses sinful man, so that he may recognize that he is part of his plan of love and allow himself to be changed by him. He in fact “takes us as we are, but never leaves us as we are”[13].

For the above mentioned reasons, the Church does not have, and cannot have, the power to bless unions of persons of the same sex in the sense intended above.

The Sovereign Pontiff Francis, at the Audience granted to the undersigned Secretary of this Congregation, was informed and gave his assent to the publication of the above-mentioned Responsum ad dubium, with the annexed Explanatory Note.

False Ecumenism and perverted Religious Liberty : Two Daggers pointed at the Heart of the Church

Pope Pius XI

For decades the churchmen were not teaching what has always been taught. To accommodate their corruption they began to obfuscate the Liturgy.
No where is this more reflected as in the pre-1955 Holy Week Liturgy. 
It was "offensive" to unbelieving men, so it had to be changed. So we had the tri-fold surrender to Protestantism, Judaism, and Freemasonry, which logically opened the door to false ecumenism, and the de facto rejection of the Catholic Church as the exclusive path of Salvation. It also led logically to pandering to religions that had their origins in paganism. 

The only question any man has to answer is the the question asked by Our Lord: "Who do you say that I am?". To which Peter, the first Pope answered, "Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the Living God". (Matthew 16:15-16).  

He who denies Jesus Christ came in the Flesh is of the spirit of Antichrist (John 1:4:3). 

In the face of this calamity of the acceptance of a false ecumenism we need to follow St Teresa of Avila: "let nothing disturb you". As such, we must be aware of the Truths of the Faith, and hold fast to them. We will be betrayed, even by fellow Catholics, who will accuse us of bigotry for exclusively holding to the Faith. But we can reply to these people, calmly, soberly, in the words of St. Peter when he told the unbelieving Jews: "there is no name under Heaven by which we are saved, but that of Christ Jesus". No other Name. No exceptions. God rewarded Peter's trust, for on that day 5000 men alone were converted.  

During this dark time, be peaceful, be calm. Let us pray for our bishops, and especially for Pope Francis. 

From Pope Francis' interview with La Croix. As you read the following, note the present Pope's obsession with (a misguided and false) understanding of being a son or daughter of God, and of "personal dignity". Only those baptized in Christ Jesus are brothers and sisters. Yes, on a merely natural level we are all related, but we are NOT brothers and sisters with those who do not profess Jesus Christ. Those who do not profess Jesus Christ debase what should be their only true dignity. After all, Jesus Christ is God, He is the Creator of the Universe, He is Universal King by His being Divine and shedding His Blood for us. No man can have dignity and freedom as God wants it, unless he believe and be baptized. No man, no exceptions.

States must be secular. Confessional states end badly. That goes against the grain of History. I believe that a version of laicity accompanied by a solid law guaranteeing religious freedom offers a framework for going forward. We are all equal as sons (and daughters) of God and with our personal dignity. However, everyone must have the freedom to externalize his or her own faith. If a Muslim woman wishes to wear a veil, she must be able to do so. Similarly, if a Catholic wishes to wear a cross. People must be free to profess their faith at the heart of their own culture not merely at its margins.

From Pius XI's Encyclical, Quas Primas. 

Pius XI: 

It would be a grave error, on the other hand, to say that Christ has no authority whatever in civil affairs, since, by virtue of the absolute empire over all creatures committed to him by the Father, all things are in his power... If We ordain that the whole Catholic world shall revere Christ as King, We shall minister to the need of the present day, and at the same time provide an excellent remedy for the plague which now infects society. We refer to the plague of anti-clericalism, its errors and impious activities. This evil spirit, as you are well aware, Venerable Brethren, has not come into being in one day; it has long lurked beneath the surface. The empire of Christ over all nations was rejected. The right which the Church has from Christ himself, to teach mankind, to make laws, to govern peoples in all that pertains to their eternal salvation, that right was denied. Then gradually the religion of Christ came to be likened to false religions and to be placed ignominiously on the same level with them.

These "ecumenical" delusions and evils did not appear in 1962, but had been around much earlier. One well known 19th churchman, Felicite de Lamennais, did not impress Pope Gregory XVI, who replied with Mirari vos. It was followed by (to mention just two examples) Pius IX's Quanta cura and The Syllabus of Errors. Those pronouncements were a source of embarrassment to a significant number of bishops and laity who were already compromising the Faith as liberals. 

In the United States, the bishops went out of their way to downplay and "reinterpret" the Syllabus, whilst paradoxically, various anti-Catholic sects knew very well what it meant. Already those cowardly bishops believed being a "good" American was as important as being a good Catholic. They believed in Masonic "religious liberty" more than the Truth of Jesus Christ. They believed the lie that society is founded on liberty, and not truth. Along with the apostate "rapture" evangelical cults, they presided over the moral collapse of the United States, brought her to her knees, and marked her out for the grave of history. It is not just the United States; the same grotesque play, with local variations, is played out in every formerly Christian nation. The Popes were proven correct.

It was therefore no coincidence that American prelates played a major role in forging what would become the dagger at the heart of the Church: the ambiguous "Nostra Aetate". Two generations of Catholics would be brought up officially on what most Catholics unofficially already believed: "Catholicism - yes it is the true religion - but other religions are good too, or have good in them ". The problem is not with the good in the false religions, it is the bad. Most reject Our Lord's Divinity. A few reject the Church. They may well strike a few "good notes on the piano, but they play far too many wrong notes. It is this pandering to wrong notes that led the churchmen from "from Nostra Aetate to Pachamama". Pachamama is but a logical consequence of the fantasy that all religions are a different path to God. The fact is, different paths, lead men to different destinations. 

We have Our Lord Jesus Christ's word on it: "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me". John 14:6. 

Pray that the Pope and the bishops will clarify the dangerous errors of religious liberty and false ecumenism.

Did Cardinal Collins just call out the Toronto Catholic School Board for DENYING Jesus Christ? YES HE DID!


Cardinal Collins once again raised the issue of those who profess "false gospels that are based upon a vision of Christianity that is just not real". 

It is inconceivable that Cardinal Collins is unaware of the Board's latest vote last Thursday March 4th, when in a 12-0 act of cowardice and betrayal, voted to  established an outreach to - NOT those with same-sex attraction - but using the language of gender ideology, to those of the “LGBT community”; and then in a 9-3 vote, openly rejected the Gospels for a "false gospel" by rejecting a delegation from a father of children who quoted from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In rejecting the Catechism, the treacherous trustees rejected the Teaching Authority of the Church.

As he ended his homily the Cardinal then referenced amongst the great evils spreading across Canada, that of gender ideology, and the transsexual movement, and the denial of the reality of "male and female He created them" (Gen 5:2; Mt 19:4; Mk 10:6). 

Cardinal Collins: 

"We've got a strange thing on conversion therapy, which is not really about that. It is about other things. We've all kinds of forces around us in this world where black is white, and down is up...".  "Whoever is not with me is against me, whoever does not gather with me, scatters"(Matt 12:30). Thus says the Lord.

NO EASTER FOR YOU: Pro-abortion Eileen de Villa wants places of worship to STAY shut!


Just who is Eileen de Villa?  An article in the downtown elitist magazine "Toronto Life" provides some light (false) on this woman. If you want a real assessment of this woman, who was selected, and is protected and encouraged by Toronto's neo-fascist Mayor, John Tory, go read Vox Cantoris.  

Gauleiter John Tory

Readers should be aware that the magazine is part of the media empire of the Gagliano family, who seem to have a habit of owning media outfits that consistently promote virulent anti-family and anti-Christian morality. Readers should also note that it was these same Gaglianos' who used their money to financially back the disgraced Fr. Thomas Rosica.


Having set the background to the editorial position of "Toronto Life", we read the following in the gushing panegyric about de Villa, which should ring every alarm bell for a Christian: 

" Villa got her BSc in psychology from McGill, minoring in women’s studies. With her eye on a career that could bring about social change, she took an internship with the UN, helping to establish basic pharmaceutical industries in countries without their own supplies, and later working with the UN Population Fund to create sexual health clinics in developing countries".
Let us now briefly review the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), where the position on abortion is clear:

 What is UNFPA's goal?

The goal of UNFPA is ensure reproductive rights for all. To accomplish this, UNFPA works to ensure that all people, especially women and young people, are able to access high-quality sexual and reproductive health services, including voluntary family planning, so that they can make informed and voluntary choices about their sexual and reproductive lives.

 "UNFPA further is on record that abortion should be  " and accessible..."

Are we then surprised that the pro-abortion de Villa has just spoken out against the re-opening of places of worship? Not at all. In fact, only a fool would have ever believed that she would consider religious worship "essential". For a full report and analysis on the emerging situation, where very, very likely there will be "NO EASTER FOR YOU!", go to Vox Cantoris. 

We wait for peace, to no avail for a time of healing, but terror comes instead. Jeremiah 14: 19

Cardinal Collins. What will you do? 

St. John Fisher, pray for Cardinal Collins

Ite ad Joseph

In a short while, the Universal Church will recognize the great Solemnity of St. Joseph, the foster-father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The greatest and highest saint after the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph enjoyed particular graces during his earthly life as a result of his especial relationship to Jesus. He is recognized as the Great Protector of the Church, since he was the Head of the Holy Family.

Canada has long considered St. Joseph as one of her great patrons. As with the Universal Church, he is called to protect Canada. Therefore, as Canadians, it is a laudable practice to give homage to his patronage by devoutly reciting the Seven Sorrows and Seven Joys of St. Joseph in the nine days preceding March 19th. Pius VIII, on December 9th 1819, granted an indulgence of 300 days each for the nine days preceding March 19th for the faithful who recite this devotion. 


i. St. Joseph, pure spouse of most holy Mary, the trouble and anguish of thy heart were great, when, being in sore perplexity, thou wast minded to put away thy stainless spouse: but this joy was inexpressible when the archangel revealed to thee the high mystery of the Incarnation.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, we pray thee comfort our souls now and in their last pains with the consolation of a well-spent life, and a holy death like unto thine own, with Jesus and Mary at our side.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

ii. St. Joseph, Blessed Patriarch, chosen to the office of Father of the Word made Man, the pain was keen that thou didst feel when thou didst see the Infant Jesus born in abject poverty; but thy pain was changed into heavenly joy when thou didst hear the harmony of angel-choirs, and behold the glory of that night when Jesus was born.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, we pray thee obtain for us, that, when the journey of our life is ended, we too may pass to that blessed land where we shall hear the angel-chants, and rejoice in the bright light of heavenly glory.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

iii. St. Joseph, who wast ever most obedient in executing the law of God, thy heart was pierced with pain when the Precious Blood of the Infant Saviour was shed at His Circumcision; but with the Name of Jesus new life and heavenly joy returned to thee.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, obtain for us, that, being freed in our life from every vice, we too may cheerfully die, with the sweet Name of Jesus in our hearts and on our lips.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

iv. St. Joseph, faithful Saint, who wast admitted to take part in the redemption of man; the prophecy of Simeon foretelling the sufferings of Jesus and Mary caused thee a pang like that of death; but at the same time his prediction of the salvation and glorious resurrection of innumerable souls filled thee with a blessed joy.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, help us with thy prayers to be of the number of those who, by the merits of Jesus and his Virgin Mother, shall be partakers of the resurrection to glory.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

v. St. Joseph, watchful Guardian, friend of the Incarnate Son of God, truly thou didst greatly toil to nurture and to serve the Son of the Most High, especially in the flight thou madest with Him unto Egypt; yet didst thou rejoice to have God Himself always with thee, and to see the overthrow of the idols of Egypt.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, obtain for us grace to keep far out of the reach of the enemy of our souls, by quitting all dangerous occasions, that so no idol of earthly affection may any longer occupy a place in our hearts, but that, being entirely devoted to the service of Jesus and Mary, we may live and die for them alone.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

vi. St. Joseph, angel on earth, who didst so wonder to see the King of heaven obedient to thy bidding, the consolation thou hadst at His return was disturbed by the fear of Archelaus, but nevertheless, being reassured by the angel, thou didst go back and dwell happily at Nazareth, in the company of Jesus and of Mary.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, obtain for us, that, having our hearts freed from idle fears, we may enjoy the peace of a tranquil conscience, dwelling safely with Jesus and Mary, and dying at last between them.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

vii. St. Joseph, example of all holy living, when, though without blame, thou didst lose Jesus, the Holy Child, thou didst search for Him for three long days in great sorrow, until with joy unspeakable thou didst find him, who was as thy life to thee, amidst the doctors in this Temple.
By this thy sorrow and thy joy, we pray thee with our whole heart so to interpose always in our behalf, that we may never lose Jesus by mortal sin; and if (which God avert) we are at any time so wretched as to do so, that we pray thee to aid us to seek Him with such ceaseless sorrow until we find Him, particularly in the hour of our death, that we may pass from this life to enjoy Him for ever in heaven, there to sing with thee His divine mercies without end.
Pater, Ave, and Gloria.

Ant. Ipse Jesus erat incipiens quasi annorum triginta, ut putabatur filius Joseph.

V. Ora pro nobis, sancte Joseph.
R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi.

Deus, qui ineffabili providentia beatum Joseph sanctissimae Genitricis tuae sponsum eligere dignatus es; praesta quaesumus, ut quem protectorem veneramur in terris, intercessorem habere mereamur in coelis. Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. R. Amen.

Ant. Jesus Himself was about thirty years old, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph.

V. Pray for us, holy Joseph.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.
O God, who in Thine ineffable providence didst vouchsafe to choose blessed Joseph to be the husband of Thy most holy Mother; grant, we beseech Thee, that we may have him for our intercessor in heaven, whom on earth we venerate as our holy protector. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.

Cardinal Collins' proposed "letter" to MPPs pleading to reopen churches is an absolute disgrace!

A bowing Cardinal as he pleads with his new overlords: the "public health official"

Dear long-suffering, betrayed, and abandoned Catholics of the Archdiocese of Toronto. A so-called "letter" (reproduced below)  to "amplify your concerns" about the egregious violations of our religious freedoms by the Doug Ford government has been proposed by Cardinal Collins one year after they were taken away.


Where was Cardinal Collins a year ago? Busy locking up our churches

Simply put, the proposed letter is an absolute disgrace, and a grave insult to Catholics who have had to struggle through this year of lies, deception, and abuse. The "letter" is a nauseating mixture of distortions and pathetic fawning. It would have the Catholic Church on her knees begging for a bone from the very people who stole our God given rights (with - we need to remind ourselves - the active cooperation of the Cardinal and his Chancery agents who seem to control him like a puppet). This "letter" is profoundly ungodly, as it asks us to accept lies as truth, and to perpetuate these lies.

Finally, you will notice one last thing: the words "God", "Jesus" etc. are totally absent. The "letter" is entirely horizontal and secular. It could be written by an atheist. Worship necessitates God. How interesting that He is completely absent. If you want a real letter to our politicians, go and read Vox Cantoris.

Cardinal Collins refused LAST Summer to petition to re-open our churches

 Commentary on the "letter" is in RED.


Dear MPP is named,

I want to thank you for your service to the province [what service, for agreeing to lock us down, and destroy our economy and violate our religious and civil liberties?]. I know the past year has involved long days and time away from loved ones [NO. Queens Park hours were reduced, and besides the MPPs continued to draw on their salaries whilst businesses were shuttered up]. Thank you.[FOR WHAT? Allegedly doing what you are paid for? Or, shuttering our society, our places of worship?]

The pandemic has been tough on all of us [NO. It has been the lock downs, the destruction of businesses, families etc.] and we understand the need for restrictions to protect ourselves and others [NO. We do not understand nor do we support locking down Ontario for a virus that is no more lethal than a bad flu season]. Yet I can’t help but feel [notice how it is all reduced to "feelings" rather than facts?] that faith communities are not being treated equitably when I look at the latest restrictions implemented by the province [dear oh dear, what forthright language!]

In the “lockdown” (grey) regions, retailers can now open at 25% capacity yet places of worship are limited to 10 people maximum. It doesn’t matter whether the church, temple, mosque or synagogue can normally accommodate 150 or 1,500, they can only have 10 people present. [Finally, some objective truth is introduced. Something we - and the Cardinal - knew LAST March. So why has he been silent for ONE YEAR?]

I know what my own faith community [sic] has done to protect me [NO. I protected myself with common sense as I would in any bad flu season] and others during the pandemic [NO. My "faith community" did NOT protect my small business (now bankrupt, and my employees out of work), my family and children's peace, my parish priest under orders to violate his conscience, my relatives, friends and fellow citizens. The Archdiocese has been an active, EVEN "proactive" collaborator with the State to lock us down, as Cardinal Collins informed us in one of his video conferences]. 

 It’s been incredible [It certainly has been "incredible". The local Church selling out to keep tax free status  and avoid being excoriated by the pro-lock down elitist corporate controlled media]– hundreds of volunteers, cleaning between services ["services". NO! We have the Mass] masks, distancing, all done responsibly. So why are they being penalized? [Because "public health officials" who are godless deem worship of the Divine unessential. Why ask a stupid question, when you know the answer?]

I urge you to immediately address this unfair approach ["Unfair"? Is that all it is? NO. It is outrageous, it is a VIOLATION of our religious and civil liberties. It is tyranny]. I believe our places of worship provide essential services [Is that all? And to further reduce the worship of God to language used to describe a commercial transaction?]. At minimum, they should be given an opportunity to open with a percentage of capacity, whether it is in grey zones now or when considering any restrictions in the future.[NO. This argument presupposes the right public of religious worship is granted by the State. It is NOT].

Please amplify [Is that all?]  my concerns ["Concerns". Is that all they are?] in conversation with your colleagues and Premier Ford.[My, my such obeisance].

I very much look forward to hearing from you on this important matter [ Dear oh dear, are we really that deluded?

Cardinal Collins sheepishly pleads with Toronto Catholics: "...IF YOU WISH join in expressing your concerns" about government restrictions on public worship


This morning at the conclusion of Mass in the empty St. Michael's Cathedral (cap.1,500), Cardinal Collins FINALLY breached the issue that has been concerning us profoundly since LAST MARCH (and NOT since November, as the Cardinal noted). 



Well, it took ONE YEAR for Cardinal Collins to finally publicly raise the reality that the Government of Ontario, along with various municipal governments, and the attendant "public health authorities" are conducting a campaign against religious freedom and civil liberties. Let me repeat that again: it took ONE FULL YEAR



But it was all done rather sheepishly, timidly, and qualified: "So anyway I would er, I would ask you to check our website IF YOU WISH; join in expressing your concerns".

No sense of urgency here. No bold declaration here. And NO, Cardinal Collins the "public health authorities" are not "trying to diligently serve us...". Tell that to those who have lost their jobs, businesses, become gravely ill. Tell that to those souls who have committed suicide. No, these pro-abortion, pro-sexting, pro-masturbation officials are hardly "serving us". They have created massive, massive damage to our country and society. You should be condemning their hypocrisy in claiming to be saving lives yet all the while pushing abortion. SHAME ON YOU!


A proclamation was needed, without pandering to individuals who threatened to suppress all the Sacraments if you did not obey their evil demands. But you capitulated and handed over control of our Sacred rites. 

Today you should have done two things:



"Premier Ford if the restrictions are NOT lifted immediately, the churches will be opened tomorrow for Mass. I am here at the Cathedral, you know where to find me if you wish to come with your police and arrest me".  

Cardinal Collins: Do you really think that oafish Premier would come and arrest you, a 75 year old man? At worst he would capitulate and you would be mocked and excoriated by the downtown elitist and atheist media as a wicked old man who is spreading a virus and killing people. Perhaps word would get back to Rome and they would retire you early. Not a bad deal, "eh"? After all, unlike St. John Fisher you would be only facing mockery and retirement, and not beheading.

Call me  a cynic Your Eminence, but I am wondering what the real motivation behind all this is. I suspect that the same lawyers, moneybags, and "advisors" have told you the bad news about the loss in - you guessed it - money. They want the churches open for Easter, so they can start digging deeply into the abused faithfuls' pockets. But I have news for you: the faithful are aware that you are ONE YEAR TOO LATE.

TOTALITARIANISM IN ONTARIO: Where was Cardinal Collins when the State ordered public worship suppressed in March 2020 but kept open abortion clinics and liquor stores?

Cardinal Collins follow these Saints and stand up to the Absolutist State!

We are now ONE YEAR into the "two week" temporary lock down to ensure "hospital capacity". Well we know that was one HUGE LIE. The "two weeks" will drag on in varying degrees into the Summer, until most of you line up for your "vaccines" (many of them abortion-linked, experimental gene therapies with NO long-term studies. Remember how "safe" thalidomide was?). Over the months you will be told you need yearly boosters (e.g. mRNA, DNA, and adenovectors). Of course you are not being told that by the controlled media. Just don't forget I warned you.

Why has Cardinal Collins been SILENT for a YEAR?

 Having reminded ourselves of the BIG LIE, let us briefly reflect on Cardinal Collins' DISASTROUS response to it, and the accompanying shut downs, and constant stream of agitprop by big government, big tech, and big media. I shall confine myself to raise but a few points for our reflection. 

Last March I denounced the shutting of churches, and have not ceased in doing so. I denounced this new "religion" of Corona. I have spoken out on the local churches (such as the Archdiocese of Toronto as a "corporation") selling out (prostituting themselves) for filthy lucre. I have called time and again on Cardinal Collins to stand for Christ and His Church; to reopen the churches, to cast off State control of the Mass and the liturgy. To rebuff the downtown elite that considers the Divine "unessential", but all the while during this alleged killer "pandemic" advising the population to masturbate, or mutually masturbate through a smashed hole in a wall, whilst wearing a mask. Some killer, some pandemic! Yet Cardinal Collins continues to cling to the fantasy that these same "virtuous" officials did not intend to "suppress religious freedom." No! These are objectively evil people who utterly reject the Christian conception of man and Christian morality.

"Virtuous" public health officials advertising abortion & perverse sex

For a full report and analysis of the Cardinal's tragic Letter, please visit Vox Cantoris. Suffice it to say, his call for letter writing is but a "non-campaign" campaign. It is an illusion to create the pretext that the churchmen are protesting. It is to throw Catholics a bone. The horse has bolted, the barn door cannot be shut.   

I now ask the Cardinal a few questions:
























All ye holy martyrs of England and Wales, pray for us.
