Bishop Ronald Fabbro of London, Ontario is back at it again. The last time we reported on him, he was busy informing the faithful that they would be physically barred from entering churches if they did not follow his ultra-draconian regulations that included threatening parishioners with letters to ban them from churches. We also outed Fabbro for spreading falsehoods last summer during another one of his lock downs that went far beyond what the civil power ordered; even far beyond that of the atheistic local public health authorities. On his own initiative, he suppressed Holy Communion on the tongue, all the while claiming public health authorities ordered him to do it, which they did NOT.
Today, we can report that Fabbro attempted last week to - for all intents and purposes - suppress the Sacraments of Baptism and Confession. Perhaps because of push back from outraged parents, he has back peddled in a Letter dated April 23rd to now

|A cringing Cardinal Collins|
I have long argued - based solely on the evidence - that the Toronto public health officials are anti-religious, with a purely materialistic view of the human person as a biological unit detached from the Transcendent. Cardinal Collins, a very well read and educated man is aware of this. Indeed, anyone perusing his sermons over the past two months becomes quickly aware that the archbishop is aware that great evil abounds, that perversion is rife, that immorality is glorified as virtue and so on.
|"Very virtuous" medical officers pushing illicit and unnatural sexual vice|
Yet here we have on video the Cardinal claiming that these same purveyors of a materialistic life philosophy that is diametrically opposed to the Christian, are "very virtuous". People who even push the "unspeakable crime" of abortion (as it was defined in at Vatican II).
How is this possible? How can we reconcile a highly intelligent and informed man spouting not just nonsense, but an obvious falsehood, promoting people who support the demonic practice of murdering the unborn as "very virtuous"?
What madness is this?
I propose, dear friends, that the Cardinal lives in terror that these same "very virtuous" individuals will shut down the churches, suppress the Sacraments. The Cardinal also seemed to forget that these "very virtuous" officials are on his own admission bullies, threatening to not only suppress the Mass, but ban ALL the Sacraments. Not very virtuous, I would think. Last June - after a scandalous video surfaced - Vox Cantoris carried a detailed analysis of its content. The Vox analyzed the issue of capitulation to the State and the grave implications of handing over to the State the sacred Liturgies and rites of the Church.
|"Very virtuous" medical officers pushing pre-natal infanticide: ABORTION! |
Cardinal - no doubt pushed hard by his lawyers, accountants, handlers,
and moneybags - has opted to perpetuate the very dangerous delusion that
these objectively evil people are "very virtuous", in doing so labouring under the belief that they will leave the churches open. But this failed - as we have now seen aggressive action against churches over 14 months. Catastrophically the Cardinal in handing over to godless sinners the "authority" to open and close churches, the "authority" to change and command our sacred rites is a complete surrender to the State. Besides fear (for Collins cringed in terror when hearing of a story of how a government agent shut a church that was "violating" orders issued unconstitutionally by these "very virtuous" officials), there is also the issue of money. Big money. Here we are talking about tens of millions of tax payers money being transferred to local dioceses who have registered as corporate "consumer services industries" to receive tax free status from Caesar. And this is where these laymen, these handlers take over. Hence we have the tragic phenomenon of a Prince of the Church dancing to the tune of not only evil, State officials, but also worldly laymen, whose primary concern is money. It seems that Collins has been checkmated, reduced to a mere puppet.
As an aside: did the Catholic Church in Canada receive millions, or was made aware that millions could be withheld, or that tax free status could be revoked if the local Church in Canada did not acquiesce to become a government agent to promote abortion-linked, highly experimental, side-effect causing (including death), long-term test lacking gene therapies (mRNA "vaccines")? That there was a quid pro quo seems definitely to be in the affirmative. The seductive lure of money has resulted in agitprop being vomited out of pulpits across Canada, with Canada's bishops prostituting themselves for cash from the State. In the process selling the Church into bondage.
In contrast, as was pointed out
to us in the Gospel last Sunday about the Good Shepherd, it is
absolutely the duty before God and Man that every bishop uphold, teach,
and DEFEND the Truth of Christ, His Church and His Morality. There is no
compromise with evil. There can be no consideration about filthy lucre in defending the spotless Bride of Christ.
I reply to the Cardinal: make a stand! Follow St. John Fisher.
Proclaim to the enemies of God that we are resuming Mass at 25% capacity effective immediately. Let the Premier and wretched John Tory (the disgraced mayor of Toronto) that you will be at the Cathedral steps tomorrow morning for Sunday Mass - as a GOOD SHEPHERD. Tell them to bring their SA brownshirts with them. You will be in good company: not only with the Apostles, but your heroes Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More.

Whilst we are celebrating St. George, let us not forget the Providence of the Bard being born on this day of April 23rd.
Thursday, 22 April 2021
The secular authority in our Province of Ontario, Premier Doug Ford has apologized for attempting to implement a "show your papers" authoritarian State. This in no way excuses the Premier however from the other grave civil liberty violations that have been implemented since last March. However, Ford seems to have learnt quickly that kowtowing to the downtown globalist elite and the corporate fascist media will not be of any advantage to him, or the Province. The event over the weekend - that is, the coordinated attack on Ford revealed not only the power of this bastard union of downtown elitists and corporate fascism, but its stinking hypocrisy. The problem with bullies though (as Ford hopefully also realized) is that
if you thrown them a bone or give in, they will just take more and more.
This strange bastard born of leftist elitism and rightist corporate
fascism despises civil liberties, and hate the rights and dignity of the
individual person. Hence their war on our civil liberties since last March.Their hatred is born out during the press conference after Ford's apology, with corporate media fascists asking the Premier why he has not imposed more draconian lock downs. So don't tell me these people love civil liberties!
Where were they last year when box stores were reduced to 50% capacity, but places of worship (which are far stricter in their protocols) were closed? Where was the corporate media last November when our places of worship were once again closed? Where is our corporate media today, and the social media trolling crowd when our places of worship have again been reduced to 10 people even in places of 1000+ capacity, whilst liquor stores and beer stores remain at 25% capacity? Is this logical, just, rational? Is this common sense? Or is this something else?
And where has been the fascist corporate media, and their fellow travelers on social media as police issue tickets to mothers strolling on empty beaches, to fathers ticketed in parks as their children roller-bladed? When the disgusting "Gauleiter" John Tory and his anti-civil liberty Council closed parks, painted Orwellian circles in which people had to sit (under pain of tickets by the ever present fascist Toronto police), and banned sledding in parks (even sending out fascist police to harass parents with small children?) Where were they when fascist "inspectors" harassed and continue to harass small business owners, when fascist police arrest people holding signs that disapprove of blanket lock downs (the last time I checked we had a Charter of Rights and freedoms). Where has been the national media when Hassidic Jews have been harassed, assaulted, ticketed in Quebec by the totally corrupt fascist Montreal police? Have they been cast into outer darkness by the corporate elite because they don't buy into political Zionism? Where has been the national media when a local church went to court last December, or when a church in Alberta was raided, and then turned into an armed camp (complete with latrines on the church front steps) by the now disgraced fascist RCMP? They have been approving, cheering, and encouraging these violations. To top it off, they smear it all over with constant lies and agitprop for ever more lock downs and civil liberty violations.
So the sudden distress about fascist police overreach and brutality just wont pass the test. Nor will the sudden concern (very well orchestrated over the weekend) of highly politicized police forces (this means fascism) across Ontario refusing to ask for papers (all the while having no problem arresting and assaulting other citizens who are freely and nonviolently expressing their opinions). In other words this opposition to Ford is for the wrong reason. And in point of fact, if a small business owner had a choice between being asked to show papers or keeping their business open, I'm sure they would choose the latter. What doth it profit a man to not show his papers, yet have his business and life destroyed? And let us also not forget, small businesses are able to keep their premises cleaner and under far better control than the big box stores (or for that matter the huge Amazon warehouse, where outbreaks are legion).
And where has been
Cardinal Collins and the Canadian bishops when these grave civil liberty
violations are taking place that run counter to the Gospels and
Catholic Social Teaching. Why the silence, indeed, approval of the
brutal actions of Caesar? As we pointed out they have been taking State monies, as they -as corporate legal entities - have de facto become appendages of the ever encroaching Absolutist State.
We can hope that Doug Ford learnt his lesson over the weekend. The media and downtown corporate elite hate him no matter what he does. I myself reviewed a number of "impartial" corporate journalists Twitter accounts and going well back beyond the weekend fiasco, they were in lock step with draconian lock downs, civil liberty violations, as well as peppering their feeds with constant personal attacks and mockery of Ford. It is time for Doug Ford to now take the next step and reopen the Province following the advice of the Great Barrington Declaration.
To conclude: Premier Ford perhaps has seen the error of his ways of listening to
elitists, to fascists. He thought - no doubt - that the steps he took
were going to cheered by the anti-civil liberties crowd. After all, the
Premier of Saskatchewan when he boasted of the most draconian measures a
few months ago was cheered by the fascist media: CBC, Global, CTV, you
name it - they were all in favour of authoritarianism. Likewise, they
continue to support the curfews in Montreal and grave civil liberty
violations. Indeed, the other day the extreme leftist leader of Canada's
socialist-globalist NDP party even wrote to the disgraced racist
"blackface" Justin Trudeau, asking for the War Measures Act to
implemented in Ontario. No uproar, no outrage for the sanctimonious
media. Ford did not understand that the problem was not the civil liberty violations, it was who was implementing them. Had the Liberals or the NDP implemented a "show your papers" policy, the media would have cheered! Perhaps Doug should recall the hatred for his late brother, Rob. They could never forgive Rob for being elected Mayor of Toronto.
Now let us proceed to Cardinal Thomas Collins. Last November, when Doug Ford again illogically reduced places of worship to 10 people (under pressure from his "virtuous" public health officials) irrespective of capacity, the Cardinal immediately capitulated. We therefore had no public worship through Advent and Christmas. I wrote about the motivations behind this surrender (and much more on this surrender will be discussed over the next week). Suffice it to say, after a few emails were sent to Ford, he allowed places of worship to reopen at the still ridiculous 15% capacity. In other words, what was done in March could have been done in November. Now once again Collins has shut the churches under a false pretext of the "common good", whilst (e.g.) liquor stores remain at 25% capacity. Did Cardinal Collins apologize to Catholics for shutting our churches? Did he apologize for his cowardly surrender?
Collins could have, in the words of Vox Cantoris, "thrown down the gauntlet", and told the Premier that the churches remain open at 25% capacity. Two possibilities could have happened: 1) the Premier would have blinked; or 2) the media would have revealed its virulent anti-religion bias and denounced the Cardinal. Once again, Collins and his handlers decided the easy way out was to take the knee again to Caesar. Indeed, last year the Cardinal and his inner circle noted in a conference video they wanted to be seen as "proactive" [presumably by the atheistic public "health" officials and the fascist media] in shutting things down, and not being told to do so! Tragically, in the words of Vox Cantoris, the Cardinal during this time of civil liberty crisis, has revealed that he is not so much a Cardinal but a "Cowardinal".
I close in calling on Cardinal Collins to PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE for locking us out of our churches last year, and for closing down the churches in Advent and Christmas.
CARDINAL COLLINS REOPEN THE CHURCHES FOR MASS!
Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More, pray for us
All ye holy martyrs of England and Wales, pray for us

|St. John Fisher: Guardian against the "Three Wolves" |
Today, as we continue in ever greater lock downs, interdicts being imposed on the public celebration of Holy Mass, the surrender of the Sacred Rites to the State, the shuttering of churches, the near banishment of the Sacraments, the dissolution of the economic and social order by wayward politicians and public health officials, we should ask ourselves: what is the Catholic Church doing in the midst of this ruin? What are Her Pastors doing? Are they following the example of St. John Fisher or that of Thomas Cramner? To whom do they profess their loyalty to: God or Man?
From St. Thomas Aquinas' Commentary on the Gospel of St. John:
For the good shepherd, who loves his flock, lays down his life for it, i.e., he exposes himself to dangers that affect his bodily life. But the evil shepherd, because he has no love for the flock, flees when he sees the wolf.
Thus he says, he sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees. Here, the wolf is understood in three ways. First, for the devil as tempting: "What fellowship has a wolf with a lamb? No more has a sinner with a godly man" (Si 13:17).
Secondly, it stands for the heretic who destroys: "beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves" (Matt 7:15); "I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock" (Acts 20:29).
Thirdly, it stands for the raging tyrant: "Her princes in the midst of her are like wolves" (Ez 22:27).
Therefore, the good shepherd must guard the flock against these three wolves, so that when he sees the wolf, i.e., the devil tempting, the deceiving heretic and the raging tyrant, he can oppose him.
Against those who do not, we read, "You have not gone up into the breaches, or built up a wall for the house of Israel" (Ez 13:5). Accordingly, we read of the evil shepherd that he leaves the sheep and flees: "Woe to my worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock" (Zech 11:17). As if to say: You are not a shepherd, but only appear to be one: "Even her hired soldiers in her midst are like fatted calves; yea, they have turned and fled together, they do not stand" (Jer 46:21).

Dear Cardinal Collins,
I wrote to you twice last year, and I am still awaiting your reply. I presume you are far too busy with your accountants, lawyers, and moneybags propping up the "Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation for the Diocese of Toronto" (listed with Bloomberg as a "Consumer Services" sub-industry).
Since I do not expect you to reply, I have decided (once again) to compose an "Open Letter" to you, in the hopes that it will eventually reach you and your auxiliary bishops. I must say at the outset that over the past year this crisis has blown the cover off the Church in Toronto as the Mystical Body of Christ to really being a human services provider and registered "charity" under the corporate structure of a "Consumer Services" industry, where money and tax law is the driving consideration. God indeed does write straight with crooked lines.
With the imminent closure of our churches - as I write on April 16th - you must decide what you want to be: the nominal head of a corporate business and obedient underling to Caesar, or the local bishop of the Catholic Church. You must decide if obeying God is more important than obeying man. You must decide if Mass is more important than liquor store, beer stores, pot shops, and dare I say it - abortion "clinics". By this afternoon we will know if Premier Doug Ford has again "ordered" places of worship closed, and you have acquiesced, proclaiming it is for the "common good", and for the protection of our "brothers and sisters". Just like you boarded up every church last March even in the tiniest hamlets far north of the city. We were not even allowed in for private prayer.
Surely it disturbs you, Your Eminence that whilst you pontificate about the "common good", you are silent about the ongoing "essential service" of the slaughter of the unborn in the wombs of their mothers? Are you also not in the least concerned that this coming Monday hundreds of thousands of Catholics will get up without a job, but the local abortion clinic will remain open? And if it does disturb you: why are you silent? And what of the explosion of mental health issues, the suicides, the substance abuse, the psychological abuse of our children in Catholic schools being told to wear masks when the medical evidence is clear that they do not need to do so.
Why do you remain silent? Are you be told to keep quiet by your handlers? Are they advising obeisance to Caesar for filthy lucre? Has the Catholic Church been prostituted for 30 pieces of silver?
Another thing: you have yet to apologize to us for your disgraceful silence (recommended to you by your accountants, lawyers, and moneybags?) when the churches were boarded up at Christmas. I ask you again: would you please apologize to Catholics for denying us the right to attend Mass? We await your apology.
Finally, please do not DARE to ask for any more money. Are you not aware of how much Catholics are suffering from lost employment, the ruination of their small businesses? You seemed to be only concerned with the well paid staff in your "Consumer Service" corporation. Instead of taking millions from Caesar for your "employees", and then topping it up with parish donations, will you take immediate steps to provide monies for faithful, practicing Catholics who will - once again - be loosing their jobs, being forced to close their small businesses?
Perhaps you should be selling off some of your enormous real estate empire? Or cashing in on bonds and stocks? I noticed that in 2018 your corporation listed "charitable activities/programs" running just over 154 million. Can you supply us with a detailed account of how much money in 2020 went to Catholics who lost jobs? Can you provide us with details for emergency funding for unemployed Catholics in 2021? Let us not forget the "common good" you speak so much about.
Within a few hours we will once again know if our churches are to be closed, our Catholic families and friends decimated with indiscriminate lock downs. We will also know once again where and with whom you stand.
Will you stand up? Will you tell Premier Ford: "the churches remain open because the public worship of God at Mass is not only essential, it is more than essential. It is necessary and commanded of us". Will you tell the Premier that if he is serious about this virus, that he should immediately close the liquor and beer stores, the pot shops, and certainly the abortion mills? Will you do that Your Eminence? Will you have the courage?
Cardinal Collins, you have in your Office two portraits for fighters for the Faith: St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More. What would they do? Do you believe that St. John would meekly board up his churches and impose a de facto interdict on the Mass? That he would allow dissident priests to shutter their churches for months on end so that the faithful cannot adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament? Do you believe that your lay handlers are following in the footsteps of St. Thomas? Or are they following the treacherous Richard Rich who betrayed the Church and his friend, driven by lust for money and power?
KEEP THE CHURCHES OPEN!
DO NOT IMPOSE ANOTHER INTERDICT ON THE MASS
Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More, pray for us.
All ye holy Martyrs of England and Wales, pray for us.

In recent days, a good deal of ink has been spilled with respect to vaccinating the Ontario population from COVID-19, from both a Church and secular viewpoint. (For local commentary on the Church's response to the vaccines, see Vox Cantoris and Everyday for Life, Canada in the sidebar.)
I have been reluctant to offer any substantial commentary of my own in the public forum. After all, I do not hold a science degree and my opinion counts for little in the grand scheme of things. It is also easier to listen than to talk.
But it does not mean I have not been listening to what my friends are saying. Like many, I am friends with those on both sides of the vaccination discussion. I sympathize with the rationale on either side. On the one side, those who support vaccination seem to be thinking in terms of the future and their relationships. One man I know is wanting to be vaccinated so he can go ahead with his wedding, for the sake of his fiancé. A woman I know has already taken the first dose of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine not only on account of her job as an educator, but also because her father has taken it and there has been no adverse side effects. The list goes on.
On the other side, I have seen concerns about the efficiency of these vaccines and potential side effects, not to mention what ingredients are in the vaccines. Most of this is through Facebook and blogs, although some people in real life have expressed these concerns to me and asked some questions of their own. One need only read Vox Cantoris and other-like minded blogs to get a sense of their concerns, though it must be said that these concerns are not limited to "conservative" viewpoints.
Observing these discussions for a number of months has led me to break my silence on the thorny question of whether or not we should take the vaccine.
To put it simply, either position carries with it some measure of risk. (No decision, really, is "risk-free," as they say.) Each one of us has to - or already has, in fact - weigh the benefits and risks of either position, and decide accordingly. It is all we can do at this point in time. Given that either side can be justified, it is also why I cannot offer a definitive answer to the question. It must be said, though, that neither side should coerce people into doing what they think is appropriate. That is crossing a line that should not be crossed, both in the Church and outside of Her.
As for me, where I ultimately stand is besides the point. I have pretty much made my decision, and will stick by it, irrespective of what comes my way as a result.
May God have mercy on me. Indeed, may He have mercy on us all during this time.

Grace Life Church Raid: Gauleiter Jason Kenney sends in RCMP-Gestapo to shut church and ring it with 8-foot fencing
The Angry Albertan reports from Grace Life church after a Gestapo-style raid by the now disgraced RCMP. Alberta used to be known as the freest Province in Canada. No more. The Angry Albertan not only reports the truth about the raid, in which the Canadian Gestapo not only double-fenced off the church, but also "masked" the building site.
Needless to say you will NOT get a true report from Canada's equally disgraced corporate media, who are funded by a toxic mixture of government money, billionaire oligarchs, Big Pharma, and globalist corporate interests. In other words there is NO free press in Canada, unless one turns to small, independent journalists (such as the Albertan freedom fighter, The Angry Albertan).
Friends, this outrage in Alberta could not have happened without Premier Jason Kenney. It is tragic to report that when I was in Calgary, Kenney would regularly attend my parish of St. John the Evangelist. A very traditional Ordinariate parish. I recall the day - Remembrance Sunday - when Kenney stood at the back of the church after Mass, looking at the names of the dead soldiers who had given their lives that Canadians might live as freemen.
|Jason, what doth it profit a man to sell his soul? |
But time moves onward and Kenney set his sights on becoming Premier. In doing so, and to ensure an electoral win, meant de facto renouncing his Faith to keep the corporate media at bay. As such Kenney decided to throw his lot in with the "LGBTory" lobby, which incidentally had seized control over the United Conservative Party (UCP). It meant abandoning Christ in exchange for becoming Premier. It meant selling his soul for pottage. And now this. Are we surprised into what Kenney has morphed?
Jason Kenney the persecutor of Christians.
Jason Kenney the Gauleiter of Alberta.
Jason Kenney the man who unleashed the RCMP (now a disgraced Gestapo-style outfit) on Christians during the Holiest Week of the year.
One cannot be silent about the fact that joining Kenney as material accessories to his crimes are the Canadian bishops. Their silence means consent. Let there be NO mistake: the bishops of Canada in their silence approve of the Gestapo-stype raid on this little church. May God pour out His wrath on these wolves who occupy the episcopate in Canada. May God punish these men, whom, as St. Augustine calls "mercenaries". They merely follow, as St.Augustine also noted, in the steps of the traitor, Judas.
St. Augustine is fully aware that not all members of the clerical state and hierarchy are holy men, and if such is the case what is the relation of the wicked members to the body of Christ? The relation is the same as that of all other members. Good bishops participate fully in the life of the mystical body; they, as principal members are bound to it by life-giving ties. Bad bishops, may have jurisdictional powers and authority and belong to the Church, like all sinners not separated from it, but they do not participate in the life of grace. They are not however severed either from the external Church or the mystical body... till the end of time two categories of pastors are bound to exist. There are shepherds “who occupy a pastoral chair in order to tend to the sheep; others, however, sit on them in order to enjoy temporal honors and secular advantages”. Unrighteous bishops are not honored with the name of sons, but are called mercenaries. St. Peter, who is portrayed by St. Augustine as a personification of the Church, is also presented as a symbol of all the pastors of the Church. However, it is only good pastors and not of mercenaries that Peter is representative...in opposition to the other apostles, Judas is reputed to be such a mercenary; and if this happened to one of the apostles, who were so close to Christ, there should not be reason for scandal if his example finds imitators among the apostles' successors. They can have a place in the temporal existence of the Church, but will not enjoy the eternal existence of the mystical body of Christ" (Grabowski, pp. 219-221).

From Nostra Aetata through Assisi to Pachamama: The Anger of God rests on those who do not believe in the Divinity of Christ
547 The reward for faith is beyond our comprehension, because it is eternal life. Hence he says, Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life. And this is shown from what has already been said. For if the Father has given everything he has to the Son, and the Father has eternal life, then he has given to the Son to be eternal life: “Just as the Father possesses life in himself, so he has given it to the Son to have life in himself” (below 5:26): and this belongs to Christ insofar as he is the true and natural Son of God. “That you may be in his true Son, Christ. This is the true God and eternal life” (1 Jn 5:20). Whoever believes in the Son has that toward which he tends, that is, the Son, in whom he believes. But the Son is eternal life; therefore, whoever believes in him has eternal life. As it says below (10:27): “My sheep hear my voice... and I give them eternal life.”
548 The penalty for unbelief is unendurable, both as to the punishment of loss and as to the punishment of sense. As to the punishment of loss, because it deprives one of life; hence he says, whoever is unbelieving in the Son will not see life. He does not say, “will not have,” but will not see, because eternal life consists in the vision of the true life: “This is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (below 17:3): and unbelievers will not have this vision and this knowledge: “Let him not see the brooks of honey” (Jb 4:19), that is, the sweetness of eternal life. And he says, will not see, because to see life itself is the proper reward for faith united with love.
The punishment of sense is unendurable because one is severely punished; so he says: the anger of God rests on him. For in the Scriptures anger indicates the pain with which God punishes those who are evil. So when he says, the anger of God, the Father, rests on him, it is the same as saying: They will feel punishment from God the Father.
Although the Father “has given all judgment to the Son,” as we read below (5:22), the Baptist refers this to the Father in order to lead the Jews to believe in the Son. It is written about this judgment: “It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Heb 10:31). He says, rests on him, because this punishment will never be absent from the unbelieving, and because all who are born into this mortal life are the objects of God’s anger, which was first felt by Adam: “We were by nature,” that is, through birth, “children of anger” (Eph 2:3). And we are freed from this anger only by faith in Christ; and so the anger of God rests on those who do not believe in Christ, the Son of God.
Catholics also know that our Faith is not in man, not in the Pope, not in our bishop, but in Christ ALONE. "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me." (John 14:1) Further Our Lord warned us of tribulations, and admonished us: "Because of the multiplication of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved." (Matthew 24:12-13).
