|A cowed Cardinal refuses to follow Sts John Fisher and Thomas More |
A few days ago the Premier of Ontario, Doug Ford moved the goal posts (again). Last year, for those who can remember, Ford informed us we needed but a few weeks to hunker down to ensure hospital capacity would not be overwhelmed by a 3.4% Infection Fatality Rate (since proven a false claim by the discredited WHO) of an upper respiratory disease from a laboratory in Wuhan, China (also assisted by the United States NIH).
A year later we are still in this "two week" lock down and now Ford has moved the goal posts yet again. First it was ICU capacity, then positive PCR tests (notoriously resulting in false positives), then back to ICU capacity. Now, with the hospitals emptying out, Ford has announced the a new set of rules based on blackmail: if you don't take an experimental drug, the Province won't be reopened. And even if you do: we still have NO plan for a complete reopening. If you don't believe me look it up.
What of our - alleged - freedom loving media? Well, they are encouraging even more lock downs than the disgraced Ford. Indeed, just this weekend, the hybrid capitalist-socialist media monster, the Toronto Star is calling for even more lock downs.
Into this fray strode Cardinal Collins to confront the Premier, to inform him that churches will reopen matching the capacity of big box stores (including liquor stores). The Cardinal has even told the Premier that if his proposal is not accepted, he will reopen the churches this Sunday and challenge Ford to do his worst: including even arresting the 74 year old Cardinal of Toronto.
ALAS, dear friends, this is but a fantasy of mine. It has not, and will not happen. Several days have past and from the Archdiocese of Toronto we have a deafening SILENCE. From Cardinal Collins we have not ONE word. For a full analysis of Ford's fake reopening plan, and its implications for religious worship, including the disastrous capitulation to de facto government control of religion, please visit Vox Cantoris.
As we have seen, since the crisis burst upon us last March 17, 2020, Cardinal Collins has consistently obeyed unjust and irrational decrees. He has even defended and excused public health officials, referring to them as "very virtuous", though evidence to the contrary exposed them as militant promoters of the unspeakable crime of pre-natal infanticide, perversely known as "abortion".
As the new Covid "religion" spread last year, I denounced it: the lies, the contradictions, the perversion of science into superstition. I noted the real science pointed to the fact that (e.g.) children very, very rarely catch or transmit the disease. Those under 20 years had a greater chance of dying from lighting strikes, than from Covid. This did not stop the Cardinal's official Catholic schools engaging in child abuse by masking children: something that will have lasting psychological effects that we will yet see play out in the coming decades.
So here we are: utterly betrayed by a Cardinal who has sat silently by whilst our churches were boarded up, and the Mass suppressed (much of the Mass suppressed by him). The brief genteel email campaign which brought a bit of success should have awakened the Cardinal to the fact what we laity knew from day one: Ford was, and continues to call the Cardinal's bluff. There is NO way Ford would arrest an elderly man for reopening his churches with the same capacity as the local box store. And if he did, we would at least clear the air: the State in Canada would reveal itself to the entire world as vicious, tyrannical, antichrist. Cardinal Collins has many weapons in his quiver which he could use to great effect against Caesar: he could close down Share Life, he could withdraw the local church (and be joined by all the bishops across Canada) from all social and charitable activity, in effect putting a gun to the head of Ford and Trudeau. T
I invite you to watch the following brief video clip from last November, 2020. It is pathetic. Here we have a Prince of the Church, a Cardinal Archbishop squirming and cringing as a mere layman pontificates on the need to grovel before unjust government dictates. I find the video nauseating. It would unthinkable coming from St. John Fisher: an episcopal lion, a fighter for the Faith!
Sadly for us, it seems that Cardinal Collins is paralyzed with fear of the atheistic public health authorities, with the bad advice of his handlers, lawyers; and finally, no doubt taking into consideration what his money men tell him: "Don't poke Caesar, if you want to keep your tax status and keep receiving funds". Friends, just as the corrupt press are now presstitutes, so too, many of these priests, are priestitutes. They have all been bought off by a sickening mixture of corrupt governments and international finance and corporations. None of these entities have time for God, let alone His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. To the contrary they hate Our Lord and His Church.
The suppression of Mass, the closing of our churches has deleteriously affected our spiritual lives. Is the Cardinal really aware of the effects of denying the Mass to the faithful? Why does he not stop saying Mass to see how damaging it is? We Catholics challenge these clericalists to apply to themselves what they have inflicted on us.
I close with a final thought: is Canada now under a CURSE from God? Consider these words by St. John in 2 John 1, 7-11:
Many false teachers have appeared in the world, who will not acknowledge that Jesus Christ has come in human flesh; here is the deceiver you were warned against, here is Antichrist. Be on your guard, or you will lose all you have earned, instead of receiving your wages in full. The man who goes back, who is not true to Christ’s teaching, loses hold of God; the man who is true to that teaching, keeps hold both of the Father and of the Son. If you are visited by one who does not bring this teaching with him, you must not receive him in your houses, or bid him welcome; to bid him welcome is to share the guilt of his doings.
In embracing the State, the globalist captitalist-socialist hybrid monster, in not opposing evil, indeed meeting it with near silence or compromise, these churchmen are calling down the wrath of God upon Canada. And should we not be scourged? Abortion is spreading, sexual perversion is glorified and promoted, we have expanding euthanasia, and an explosion in pornography. Every sign of a godless and evil society that has lost the hold of God and is sharing the guilt of evil doing. What applies to Canada equally applies to every formerly Christian nation without exception, as it also does to those Nations that were never Christian, for "he who denies Jesus Christ came in the flesh is of antichrist".
It is never too late to pray for our shepherds, even if they are cowards. Let us ask a few bishops who knew how to face persecution: Sts. Peter and Paul, and the nearly 300 years of martyr-popes who faced down the tyranny of Rome. Let us besiege the great St John Chrysostom who faced the wrath and hatred of the Byzantine authorities. Let us petition Sts. Thomas Beckett and St. Stanislaw who shed their blood defending the rights of the Church against despots. Let us turn to St. John Fisher, the most learned man in England, who refused to take the knee to the new "religion" of his day and was martyred.
I end, quoting Vox Cantoris:"Your Eminence, prove me wrong".

The following is the email address to Cardinal Collins.
As Vox wrote, you may wish to wish him a holy Pentecost, and to remind him how much you are suffering from the persecution of not only the State, but the Cardinal himself for failing to stand up to the State, for the Cardinal even closing our cemeteries last year. For suppressing the Mass, for refusing to at least demand equal rights with big box stores (or liquor stores!).
