If you live in the Archdiocese of Toronto you cannot attend Mass.
It has been de facto suppressed. This is because of the "common good", taking care of our neighbour. So Cardinal Collins continues to claim. YET, he admits that there is another side to this: the virus is not spreading during Holy Mass. So we have a problem: the suppression of Mass is NOT for the common good. And this argument itself is secular: does not the spiritual common good take precedence over the physical? According to this false horizontal "Christianity" (incidentally condemned by Paul VI as a very dangerous poison) no. The body is more important than the soul in the new "religion" of Covid.
At this very moment on Sunday morning, box stores and liquor stores are filled with lapsed Christians and pagans - all sinning against keeping the Lord's Day holy. Yes, alcohol dependent persons (after all who would risk their life during a pandemic for a drink?) are, even as I write, populating liquor stores all over the Archdiocese. Confronted with this obscene absurdity the Cardinal, the bishops, the priests (and let us be honest the laity) are silent.
The Cardinal should have told the Premier: "I will match you man for man. If the big box stores, and liquor stores are open at 25% capacity, our churches will be open at 25%. If they are not causes of spread, neither are our churches. You know where I am. Bring your police to arrest an old man outside his Cathedral. I will be waiting for you. I shall be with my bishops, many priests, and 1000 laity".
But no. Our churches are silent, there is no Mass. There is no one to keep watch. They have all fled, capitulated; gorged on Caesar's money, they will not break with their master.
Let us take comfort from the great St. John Chrysostom (who in his day had to face down evil politicians) who, as if prophetically, wrote the following to the enemies of the Mass, to those who despise public worship, to those who believe that liquor is essential (and even worse, pre-natal infanticide), but worshiping the One, True God is not.
YOU CANNOT PRAY AT HOME, LIKE YOU CAN AT CHURCH,
WHERE THERE IS A GREAT MULTITUDE;
WHERE EXCLAMATIONS ARE CRIED OUT TO GOD AS FROM ONE GREAT HEART,
AND WHERE THERE IS SOMETHING MORE:
THE UNION OF MINDS, THE ACCORD OF SOULS,
THE BOND OF CHARITY, THE PRAYERS OF PRIESTS.
St. John Fisher, give Cardinal Collins courage. Make him a bishop after your own heart
All ye holy martyrs of England and Wales, pray for us
