Sainthood is all that matters

A comment on a post I made the other week, made as it was on a public forum, necessitates some clarification on said post.

I was speaking about quietly forming one's convictions and standing your ground when your convictions are put on the spot. My experiences that day reminded me of that principle as it is reiterated throughout Scripture. Perhaps the most famous iteration of that principle is when Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself (Blessed be His Name forever!) did not beat about the bush when He said that if we were lukewarm about anything pertaining to Him, He would spit us out. (Pretty striking imagery, if I may say so.) I was obscure about it, yes, and that was to allow readers to draw their own fruit from my reflection. Sometimes, less is more.

As I have said elsewhere, there are times and places to address the concerns of today. This is what Barona does by addressing the education crisis in the Archdiocese of Toronto time and time again (he did just that the other day). Everyday for Life, Canada writes on the same subject matter pretty much full-time, although he does cover areas outside of the "Arch." Vox Cantoris has made it his mission to cover many of the overarching concerns about orthodoxy and heterodoxy in today's Roman Catholic Church, be it globally or locally. I cannot hold a candle against any of these (local) bloggers, but I suspect Our Lord's admonition against being lukewarm is a deeply held conviction of their own.

I have taken a different stance, drawing from the Church's teachings on the hidden life to subsequently form many of my own convictions in the solitude of my heart. Offering reflections as I have been doing lately comes from that same place, while also holding the tenet that "all will be held to account" before my eyes continually. I take a risk each time I post (even anonymously!), but life is filled with risks. Working out our salvation with fear and trembling is something no Catholic can avoid. The saints before us knew this, saints such as St. Catherine of Siena and St. Irenaeus of Lyons.

In sum, that comment was a welcome grace and reminder that I am to go ever deeper into what I am already in. I leave the present reader to consider the statement put forward in this blog post's title.

Sainthood is all that matters.

May God bless you all.

EMANUEL JACQUES: The murder of Toronto's shoeshine boy reveals the horror that is "gay pride"

 


On July 29, 1977 Emanuel Jaques was abducted and tortured for over 12 hours by four homosexual sadists on Yonge Street [warning graphic content]. After a half day of unspeakable horror, the homosexual sadists finally murdered little Emanuel by holding his head in a kitchen sink filled with URINE.  

Such was their evil, their mad, satanic lust.




 
Yes, urine. 

Torture, sadism, perversion, abuse...




 
This is the logical consequence of sexual depravity at its demonic, satanic conclusion. In the early 1970s parts of Yonge Street had been taken over by homosexuals, who began an underground of bathhouses to practice their vice. Though monitored by the police, this evil was allowed to grow, even leading to so-called "gay pride parades". Following Emanuel's sadistic murder, there was a strong public reaction against the open glorification of homosexual vice, which culminated in the police raids of 1981 (without doubt the high point of true community policing in the history of this city).

The city elite, however, only acted under duress from public outrage. In later years, the police become so corrupt that they joined decadent city and provincial officials to "apologize" for the closing of the bathhouses. A few years later the Criminal Code was changed, repealing legislation against keeping a common bawdy house. Gatherings for promiscuous and perverted sex were now legalized in Canada. Today the rot is so far gone that not only do you have politicians campaigning in "gay" bars, but notorious homosexual-infested clerics openly promote gay bars.
 
St. John Chrysostom wrote about this great evil, its causes and effects. Its practitioners and promoters (though they scoff and mock) unless they repent, will have their "reward" in the lake of fire.




Emanuel was a Catholic, and a recent immigrant to Canada with his family from Portugal. I have written about Emanuel before, and will continue to do so. It is indeed scandalous that Emanuel is forgotten by the local Church. It is even more scandalous that the so-called Toronto Catholic District School Board has formally joined in this evil, by pushing this depravity on innocent children. Needless to say, they are silent on Emanuel, as are the perverse teachers who encourage this unnatural vice as normal, rather than reveal the truth about this madness.



Holy Cross Cemetery in north Toronto,
where Emanuel's mortal remains are buried

Once again we call upon the Archdiocese of Toronto to seek to have Emanuel declared "venerable".  



Today, using the internet, the godless hoard ("hell appearing before its time" St. John Chrysostom) will gather to blaspheme God and His creation ("male and female He created them" Gn 1:27); to "celebrate" sexual perversion. They are - of course - in continued mockery, silent that one of Emanuel's murderers is out on partial parole in B.C. This is how much children are "valued" in our society. If the tears wept over the Residential Schools were genuine, so too would tears be shed for Emanuel.

Let us, during this evil time, especially during the month of the Sacred Heart consider that Emanuel was embraced into that Heart by the very Jesus who said "“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”(Mt 19:14).
 
Let us pray that through his death, graces will be accepted by homosexuals (many, many who have succumbed to this vice due to themselves suffering horrendous sexual abuse when young) who will repent and turn away from sin. 

Let us now once again implore Emanuel to pray for us and for the conversion of homosexuals, for all those suffering same-sex attraction, for those confused as to their sexuality, for those misled by lying lips as to the beauty of human sexuality as a gift of God for Holy Matrimony.

"To all homosexuals we say: Peace, Hope, and Joy in your daily pursuit of chastity and holiness. God be with you! May you always keep in your hearts the words of St. Paul, 'You are not called to immorality but to holiness' ".  
Very Rev. Mgr. Vincent Foy 

Emanuel Jaques, pray for us.

What will the TCDSB do about a teacher who openly DENIES Our Lady's Perpetual Virginity?

 

The TCDSB DENYING the Catholic Faith

The Toronto Catholic District School Board's (TCDSB) schools are in the state of collapse. On this blog we have documented several decades of corruption, heresy, decadence and outright perversion amongst teachers who belong to the militant Union, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA). We have documented its support for priestesses, homosexuality; its running cover for sexual predators by encouraging members to contact the Union rather than speak to authorities during investigations of sexual predation upon minors (usually undertaken by hyper-sexualized feminist teachers who prey on vulnerable teenage boys). OECTA more recently has advocated for abortion

Over the past few years the rot, the corruption also logically penetrated the TCDSB, where we are in the position that 8 of the trustees have rejected Catholic Faith and morals on human sexuality and the family. We have the grotesque horror of the Board voting in favour of promoting during this month of June what is known as "pride" with regards to homosexuality and its attendant perversions: lesbianism, bisexuality, pansexuality, transexualism, and the denial of the objective reality of the male and female sex. This year has also seen an aggressive propaganda push towards children, where powerful international capitalist entities and governments are openly pushing pedophilia. Again, this is logical: pedophilia and homosexuality have their nexus in the masturbatory act; both coming from the same fount of unnatural lust, as well as being a deformation of the unitive act between husband and wife within Holy Matrimony, that Our Lord Jesus Christ raised to the level of a Sacrament. 

It therefore comes as no surprise that we have teachers promoting homosexual acts as good, and equal to the union between the chaste acts proper to a married couple. Thus these degenerates place on the level the marital act of which Our Lord said "the two shall become one flesh" (Mark 10:8) to (e.g.) rimming, fisting, and golden showers. 

 



 

It also comes as no surprise that those who have rejected Catholic Faith and morals, also end up perverting the Source: Our Lord Jesus Christ (c.f. Romans 1:25). Hence we have a Paulo de Buono tweeting out the following heresy and blasphemy that claims Our Lord had "half-siblings". 

 



Here we have the denial of Our Lady's Perpetual Virginity, which is a defined dogma, of which the post-baptismal denial is an act of heresy.

One notices the juxtaposition: a strawman fake "Jesus" versus a fake "historical Jesus". The first strawman "Jesus" is so preposterous that no comment is necessary. The second "Jesus", given that it is being pushed as "historical", requires closer scrutiny. As we review it we notice two major influences: the first is quite new: it stems from a Marxist interpretation that Jesus was a liberator, a misunderstood Jew who criticized the Temple authorities and sought to "liberate" the "oppressed". How a mere man can "liberate" is never explained, nor is "oppression" defined. But it definitely is not sin. Contrast this satanic "Jesus" to the words of St. John:

And the Word was made flesh, and came to dwell among us; and we had sight of his glory, glory such as belongs to the Father’s only-begotten Son, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

The second, Jesus the "rebel", is no less diabolical. It has its genesis in the Talmud and is about 1600 years old. You will notice that this false "rebel" Jesus is completely horizontal, naturalistic, and materialistically messianic. In contrast to the Marxist interpretation of "rebel", the Talmudic interpretation is far darker moving beyond a naturalistic interpretation to a satanic and blasphemous hatred of Christ's Divinity. 

In sum, perverted interpretations of Our Lord other than what is in Sacred Scripture begins in the "Jesus" of what Lucifer desired of Him in the temptations in the desert. There is NO Saviour, NO Redeemer, NO Incarnation, NO Divinity. The fake "Jesus" is therefore a satanic caricature, embraced by those who are antichrist. In Sacred Scripture, St. John defines the spirit of antichrist as those who deny Jesus Christ has come in the Flesh. "And even now there are many antichrists" (1 John 2:18). And again, "this is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son" (1 John 2:22).  Catholics also need to understand that what we popularly call "The Antichrist" in Sacred Scripture is actually called the  man of sin, perdition, the son of perdition ("homo peccati filius perditionis"). Antichrist is a state of mind that denies Our Lord Jesus Christ, as this evil caricature promoted by de Buono does. In this sense, it is as old as the malignant lies, jealously, and hatred of Annas and Caiaphas for Jesus. 

To conclude, we have no ill will towards de Buono. Though he has manifested ill will towards this blog on a number of occasions, we refuse to lower ourselves to engage in ad hominem attacks. We do not know his personal spiritual drama that has led him to fall into heresy through his denial of the dogma of Mary's Perpetual Virginity, or his endorsement of a fake materialistic messianic "Jesus". We ask him to consult with wise priests on the true Nature of Our Lord Jesus Christ, on Our Lady, on Catholic morality regarding human sexuality and the nature of the family. This obviously also includes ceasing to promote homosexual acts as a good, and claiming the Church is in error for requiring of homosexual persons to live chaste lives. We encourage him to do so in humility so as to learn to know and love the Person of Jesus who died for him on that Good Friday. It should not come to de Buono being forced to remove his heresies and cease promoting them. This is not the solution. The solution is that he repent; but if he refuses to do so to remove himself from the Catholic education system. Our prayer is he repents and returns to the Church.

Friends, we cannot say we love Him if we do NOT obey Him. One sure sign of loving Jesus is obeying and believing everything that Christ's Church has always taught since Apostolic times. To oppose the Church is to oppose Christ. "Saul, Saul who dost thou persecute me?" (Acts 9:4).

 Do not let anyone find the means of leading you astray. The apostasy must come first; the champion of wickedness must appear first, destined to inherit perdition. This is the rebel who is to lift up his head above every divine name, above all that men hold in reverence, till at last he enthrones himself in God’s temple, and proclaims himself as God. (2 Thess 3-4).

Sometimes, less is more

Trekking outside of my normal stomping grounds for an appointment this morning, I returned home to a much-anticipated letter which I have yet to read and digest.

It truly was a grace to receive it when I did, as my travels reminded me just how disparate and dystopian-feeling the Greater Toronto Area has gotten as of late. I was discomforted with what I saw around me, as well as the general expectations laid upon me as part of the current discourse. 

It prompted me to reflect on God's Grand Plan.

The Hand of God is truly at work, even when it seems like man is intent on ignoring Him at all costs, in all spheres of life, across all of time. Nothing is outside of His Dominion, His Creation. Even that which is Not Good, for He permits it so as to bring about a Greater Good.

This is not to diminish the evils man has done, both within the Church and outside Her. God Himself has made many promises regarding those who do evil to others. There is no need to repeat them here, but they are warnings to us all.

May we be found on the side of Good when we pierce the veil at the end of our lives. It is incumbent on us all to be faithful until that moment comes.

Learn what you need to learn. Practice what you need to practice. Imitate those whom you need to imitate.

If you perceive your superior in the Church to be in error, do not follow them into that error whatever that error may be. 

After all, God also promised great things in store for those who persevere for His sake in this life. One need only to look to the many saints the Church has named over Her (short but ongoing) life as some of the little fulfillments of this last promise.

With that, I take my leave.

Please pray for the letter-writer, this writer, and Barona, as well as the uncounted patrons of this blog.

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Pope Pius XI

 


 

Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most Sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thine altar. We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united to Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates ourselves today to Thy Most Sacred Heart.

Many indeed have never known Thee; Many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful children, who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children, who have abandoned Thee; Grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.

Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions, or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that there may be but one flock and one Shepherd. 

Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them into the light and kingdom of God. 

Turn Thine eyes of mercy towards the children of the race, once Thy chosen people: of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may it now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life.

Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound  from pole to pole with one cry; praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; To it be glory and honor forever. Amen.

Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus by Pope Pius XI

 


Prayer of Reparation

O sweetest Jesus, whose overflowing charity towards men is most ungratefully repaid by such great forgetfulness, neglect and contempt, see, prostrate before Thy altars, we strive by special honor to make amends for the wicked coldness of men and the contumely with which Thy most loving Heart is everywhere treated.


At the same time, mindful of the fact that we too have sometimes not been free from unworthiness, and moved therefore with most vehement sorrow, in the first place we implore Thy mercy on us, being prepared by voluntary expiation to make amends for the sins we have ourselves committed, and also for the sins of those who wander far from the way of salvation, whether because, being obstinate in their unbelief, they refuse to follow Thee as their shepherd and leader, or because, spurning the promises of their Baptism, they have cast off the most sweet yoke of Thy law. 

We now endeavor to expiate all these lamentable crimes together, and it is also our purpose to make amends for each one of them severally: for the want of modesty in life and dress, for impurities, for so many snares set for the minds of the innocent, for the violation of feast days, for the horrid blasphemies against Thee and Thy saints, for the insults offered to Thy Vicar and to the priestly order, for the neglect of the Sacrament of Divine love or its profanation by horrible sacrileges, and lastly for the public sins of nations which resist the rights and the teaching authority of the Church which Thou hast instituted. 

Would that we could wash away these crimes with our own blood! And now, to make amends for the outrage offered to the Divine honor, we offer to Thee the same satisfaction which Thou didst once offer to Thy Father on the Cross and which Thou dost continually renew on our altars, we offer this conjoined with the expiations of the Virgin Mother and of all the Saints, and of all pious Christians, promising from our heart that so far as in us lies, with the help of Thy grace, we will make amends for our own past sins, and for the sins of others, and for the neglect of Thy boundless love, by firm faith, by a pure way of life, and by a perfect observance of the Gospel law, especially that of charity; we will also strive with all our strength to prevent injuries being offered to Thee, and gather as many as we can to become Thy followers. 

Receive, we beseech Thee, O most benign Jesus, by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Reparatress, the voluntary homage of this expiation, and vouchsafe, by that great gift of final perseverance, to keep us most faithful until death in our duty and in Thy service, so that at length we may all come to that fatherland, where Thou with the Father and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest God for ever and ever. Amen.

June 6, 1944 - there WAS Mass for you on D-Day during the hell of warfare! But there is NO Mass for you today!

 

And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all unto Myself (St John 12:32)

Something terrible has happened in the Catholic Church over the past century. No truer words were spoken by Pope Paul VI when he uttered "through some crack, the smoke of Satan has entered the Church". 

It is this "smoke" that has, like a poisonous gas, rotted the brains of our churchmen, and turned them into sniveling effete cowards, groveling before Man and Money.

Let us now cast our minds and hearts back to the blood soaked beaches of  Normandy, where 77 years ago, as I write and you read this, young men, many not even twenty were being cut down mercilessly with machine gun  and mortar fire by the Nazis. Yet, in that hell, where death and mayhem reigned, where heads, arms, and legs were in an instant shot off a living human body, in that hellhole true Catholic priests had not abandoned the flock, had not fled in the face of death, but rather attended the men with Last Rites on the battlefield, heard Confessions, and said Holy Mass. 

 






Contrast that with the near universal collapse and ruin we have all about us. Where Catholic churchmen over the past year, rather than defending the helpless, fighting for the oppressed, speaking out against authoritarianism, have remained silent, if not, on many occasions (from the Pope on downwards) actually thrown in with the worst of oppressors and exploiters. These men have abandoned the flock, fled the field, locked themselves up in their palaces and mansions. They have locked us out of our churches, suppressed the Sacraments, and denied the Blessed Sacrament. They have overturned the Altars and allowed the Church to be raped by the State by handing over the Sacred Rites into the hands of godless sinners, who have their hands drenched in the blood of the unborn.

There is no better way to contrast the two religions - and let us be honest that is what they are - the Religion of God versus the Religion of Man are through images. To borrow a phrase from Wren, look around you.


The Religion of God


The Religion of Man


For a report on the scandalous situation in the Archdiocese of Toronto, which reflects the typical capitulation to the State, please visit Vox Cantoris for a report and detailed analysis of the crisis. 

As you pray for the repose of the souls of our Allied Dead, consider the complete sellout and surrender of the Catholic Church to the State. As you think of your bishop in hiding, your priests missing in action, your elderly family member dying in a hospital or long term care facility all alone, with no one to even hold their hand, let alone administer Last Rites, consider this Great Betrayal.

Let it be known that the Catholic churchmen from the Pope on downwards, have also been SILENT on the Great Elderly Care Home Holocaust - where hundreds of thousands, if not well over a million elderly were done to lonely and cruel death through criminal negligence, medical martial law, and the lust for money. Where not ONE churchman stood up and denounced this criminality, this outrage. Demanded that families be allowed in to minister to their loved ones, that they be allowed in to offer Last Rites and the Sacraments. 

And through it all please remember: 

 

Please pray for the churchmen, that they repent and turn to defending Christ and His Church

BREAKING: Cardinal Collins' draft Letter against the evil of LGBT ideology



Toronto Catholic Witness has obtained a copy of a pastoral Letter by Cardinal Collins from Fr. Aidan McNutty denouncing the recent votes in favour of homosexuality, lesbianism, trans-sexual ideology and sexual degeneracy that was passed by the imposter "Catholic" trustees of the Toronto District Catholic School Board (TCDSB). 

We understand that intense pressure is being brought to bear upon the Cardinal by not only government and pro-"LGBT" capitalist entities, but also dissenting priests, powerful and wealthy modernists, corrupt chancery officials, and the extremist OECTA teachers' Union to not formally release the Letter.  


 

We reply: in standing up like St. John Fisher, Cardinal Collins can be a true Shepherd and expose one of the greatest evils in our time: the perversion of the relationship between man and woman, the meaning of the family, and the true nature of love which is founded in the Love of the Most Holy Trinity. 

Cardinal Collins, make a stand! 

Release the Letter!

St. John Fisher, pray for us.
