Is Michael Voris The Most Radical Catholic Thinker Of His Day?

Or is he simply America's greatest prophet?

"The reason for the collapse of Western civilization is contraception."  OMG! Outrageous! Preposterous! Absolute madness! Shut this guy down!

Entire Doctrinal Structure Of The Church At Risk Of Collapse?

A controversy of great magnitude is raging in the Catholic universe right now. It centres around the papal document Amoris Laetitia and threatens even to create a schism in the Catholic Church. I contend that widespread neglect of the traditional doctrine and discipline of the Church since Vatican II has paved the way for this crisis and, for decades, nowhere has this been more illustrative than in the refusal of Bishops to discipline pro-abortion public sinners, especially politicians. I would go so far as to suggest that this long term failure by Bishops has created a laissez faire environment and actually set the stage for the attack upon marriage and the family which we are currently witnessing. Either Canon 915 is to be taken seriously since it governs the worst forms of abuses of the Holy Eucharist or, if not, the Eucharist is not what Catholic teaching claims; in which case the entire doctrinal structure of the Church collapses.

Clearly, Dr. Edward Peters sees the situation in a similar light and is sounding the warning by pointing to the divine law roots of Canon 915. Here is the introductory paragraph from his post of today’s date.

For several years I and others have argued that the question of admitting divorced-and-remarried Catholics to holy Communion turns primarily on Canon 915 (which norm, against a backdrop of canons protecting the right of the faithful to access the sacraments, sets out a minister’s duty to refuse holy Communion under certain conditions). Asserting the importance of Canon 915 in this Communion discussion, however, has been an uphill battle as virtually none of the official documents central to this debate—including Amoris laetitia,the Buenos Aires letterthe Maltese directives, the German episcopal conference document, and several others—so much as mentions Canon 915, let alone do they recognize that this canon directly regulates the sacramental disciplinary question at hand.

The full posting is here. It deserves a full reading.

Unless the laity rises up—speedily—and demands unreserved fidelity from their priests and Bishops, we are approaching a meltdown, at least in practical terms, of the One True Church of Jesus Christ. God help us, we are in an abyss!

Catholic Bishops of Canada, The Virgin Mother Pleads: "First Honour My Son"

The effrontery of Canada's Catholic Bishops is truly stunning! For decades they dismantled the substance of the Moral Law of Christ's Catholic Church and dumbed down everyday Catholics to the point of being unaware of sin. Now, when they realize our nation might face serious challenges, instead of repentance and reform, their magic cure is a re-consecration of Canada to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

I was outside Notre Dame Cathedral-Basilica in Ottawa with my signs when the Catholic Bishops re-consecrated Canada to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on September 26, 2017. If it had been possible, this is the message I would have liked to shout out yesterday, in addition to holding signs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Fellow Catholics,

Canada was first consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1947 by the Catholic Bishops of Canada. Less than twenty years later the same Catholic Bishops took a hatchet to their Master’s teaching when they declared contraception was not a matter of Canada’s common good but simply one of many moral teachings of the Catholic Church. Canada has never recovered from that devastating act of betrayal. Our nation has since been plunged into the quicksand of moral relativity, dying a slow death from the many evils which soon overtook us through the privatization of contraception, divorce and abortion and the subsequent rise of homosexuality, same sex “marriage” and euthanasia.


So did the Virgin fail us? Was the first consecration of Canada to the Immaculate Heart of Mary a failure which now needs a refreshing, a recharging of the batteries, so that Canada might at last be noticed by the Mother of God and saved from its bleak future? Or do the Bishops feel driven, through desperation or maybe a guilty conscience, to invent the latest greatest cure-all for Canada’s sick society?

No, the Blessed Virgin Mary did not fail Canada since the first consecration of 1947. Nor will she ever fail us. In fact, there can be no doubt that thanks to her intercession for the last seventy years God`s hand of judgment against this wicked nation has largely been stayed. Canada might otherwise have collapsed under the weight and guilt of four million aborted children’s corpses, or balkanized politically due to disunity caused by the grave state of immorality, faithlessness and apostasy.

No, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will always prevail. But calling upon her for help and intercession is not a substitute for the obedience of Bishops. It is always appropriate to honour our Lady and acknowledge her miraculous role in our salvation but I say again: Calling upon the Virgin Mother of God is not a substitute for the obedience of Bishops, regardless of how many times they might consecrate Canada to her Immaculate Heart. Always the Blessed Virgin has made clear her message down through the ages to all servants of the Lord Jesus Christ:

“FIRST honour my Son. Do whatever He tells you.”

But, even God’s patience is known to wane over time and, when provoked, mothers can also speak with stinging criticism, especially in defense of son or daughter.

“FIRST honour my Son. Christ my Son instituted laws in His Church to prevent unworthy sinners from desecrating His Body and Blood. Yet for more than 50 years Canada has been plunged into a confused, moral abyss because my Son is regularly handed over to His enemies in an unholy communion. Why do the Bishops, the Successors of my Son’s Apostles, pick and choose which laws and doctrines of the Church they will obey? Why do they fail to discipline wayward, influential Catholics? As I have warned in many other places and times: the work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church, attacking first consecrated souls and luring them to accept compromises and errors. Such errors eventually force bishops to oppose bishops. Now I beg Canadian Catholics to pray especially for bishops and priests and for reparation before the Blessed Sacrament. These same Bishops now wish to consecrate Canada once again to my Immaculate Heart and I say to them again: Catholic Bishops, first learn to obey my Son and the laws of the Church for which He gave His life!”

Such a scolding from Our Heavenly Mother would, sadly, be puzzling to a great many Catholics. But just weeks ago we witnessed in Montreal the greatest scandal to take place in Canada’s recent history—made all the worse because it was televised live on national TV. Yet Church leaders and media alike have been completely silent. At a high Mass at Notre Dame Basilica in the midst of gala celebrations for the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montreal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a renegade Catholic, shared in Eucharistic Holy Communion. Trudeau defies the law of Christ pertaining to practically every social evil currently plaguing Canada, including abortion, contraception, divorce, euthanasia, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and gender theory. Nevertheless, he stepped forward to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and was enabled in his act of sacrilege by none other than an Archbishop, His Excellency Christian Lépine, a Bishop who later justified his scandalous behaviour by characterizing it as a “gesture of hope.”


Impossible! The warning from Holy Scripture is clear:
Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord… For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 1 Corinthians 11:27, 29
Since that blasphemous moment in Montreal not one of the more than 30 influential Bishops and 400 priests present, including Archbishop Prendergast, has spoken up to condemn the evil perpetrated at that event or to defend the teaching of Christ. By all appearances these consecrated men fear the wrath of men more than the wrath of God. The Catholic Church prescribes for public sinners such as Justin Trudeau the application of Canon Law No. 915, which mandates the denial of Holy Communion as a measure to help save the sinner’s soul and also as a measure to prevent the affected community being scandalized. Note that the adherence to Canon Law is not an option for Bishops; in fact they are sworn to uphold both Church law and doctrine. Neither is it a matter of prudential judgment as some Bishops claim. Once the conditions of the law are met, the Bishop is required to act. Failure to act is disobedience to Christ Himself.


Archbishop Prendergast, do your duty to God: Discipline Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in accord with the law of Christ that his soul might be saved and the tide of evil stemmed in this great land of Canada.

Ottawa’s Archbishop is considered by many to be one of Canada’s finest Bishops. Perhaps he is, but he may also be considered a reckless Bishop as well. Christ Himself said that to whom much is given much is required. The Archbishop has been given a station of tremendous influence in our nation’s capital. Why then has he first equivocated, then ignored, the remedy proposed by Christ and His Church to deal with the dangerous behaviour of Canada’s #1 public sinner, Justin Trudeau?


Since arriving in Ottawa in 2007 the Archbishop could practically see from his front yard the rise to political prominence of Justin Trudeau and all the scandal surrounding this renegade Catholic’s denial of Church teaching. As Trudeau’s Bishop, he refused to confront Trudeau’s demon actions and to properly address the scandal in a timely fashion in accordance with Church law. Had he done so in the earliest stages, the Archbishop might have helped to save Trudeau’s soul. At the very least early action would have publicly signaled to Canada the true nature of Trudeau’s immoral character and devilish mindset. Such exposure might well have inhibited his rise to power and very possibly prevented his election to the most powerful office in the nation.

Tragically then it must be acknowledged that Archbishop Prendergast is complicit in the rise of great evil in our land because he refused to employ the Church's remedy for public sinners. There is no getting around it, the Archbishop defied Church law and spurned Christ. And, indirectly, he has endangered all of Canada and subjected even other nations to the demonic influence of Trudeau’s evils. Yes, Prime Minister Trudeau even sponsors contraception and abortion overseas using millions of dollars of Canadian taxpayer’s money.

Archbishop Prendergast was aware that PM Trudeau would be attending—and speaking—at the commemorative Mass in Montreal several weeks ago. If Trudeau had been contacted and informed it would have been a simple matter to ensure the Prime Minister did not present for Holy Communion. Had the PM ignored such a warning, those who were Ministers of Holy Communion, including Archbishop Lépine, could have readied themselves to deny Holy Communion should Trudeau step forward. Bottom line: Had the Bishops been joined heart and mind to Christ the scandal could have been averted.


The Bishops commemorate 150 years of Canadian Confederation but what exactly are we celebrating in this once great nation of ours? What does God see when His gaze fixes on Canada? 50 years of unrestricted legal killing of unborn children, as many as 4 million lives destroyed by therapeutic abortions due to a criminal code that is blind to abortion; A nation addicted to the unnatural sexual appetite of sodomy, with perhaps 90-95% of the population practicing or supporting contraception and another huge percentage cheering on the drive to fully normalize homosexual relationships; A Supreme Court which has somehow determined from our Charter of Rights that Canadians possess a right also to euthanasia, or the more polite phrase, M-A-I-D (medical aid in dying).


What else does God see? One of the first Western nations to legally assault God’s divine plan of marriage and legitimize so called “same sex” marriage; And now these days we see unfolding in Canada Satan’s latest attack on God’s truth, that of gender ideology. Already it has started in our schools to twist the minds of our youngest children and only days ago, it was given protections under law by PM Trudeau; now the state has free reign to silence its critics and corrupt our society. On Canada Day 2017, rather than a celebration, shouldn’t we be preparing a national day of mourning and humiliation before the Lord?


The hour is late. There can be no further delay. Archbishop Prendergast, do your duty to God: Discipline Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in accord with the law of Christ that his soul might be saved and the scandal redressed.


But the evil extends far beyond Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In fact, since the first consecration in 1947, Canada’s Bishops have fostered an altogether different religion in Canada and the gambit has been swallowed hook, line and sinker. Few will acknowledge this devastating reality. Why was it that no Catholic in Canada traveled to Montreal to attend and to safeguard, if warranted, the Holy Eucharist from desecration by the Prime Minister? Why did no Catholic prepare himself, at just the correct moment, to suddenly stand from the balcony and shout out loudly, "Sacrilege! Sacrilege! Sacrilege! Justin Trudeau is a public sinner! He must be denied Holy Communion in accordance with Canon 915! A pox upon any clergyman in this building who would dare to commit sacrilege by handing over the Body and Blood of Jesus to one of His enemies!"


After you've meditated upon that mystery, then consider that the Montreal Basilica, which holds thousands of persons, had a large crowd in attendance, many of whom were the most influential clergy and laypeople of Canada. Not one of the thousands were distressed sufficiently to rise from their seats when Trudeau stepped forward for Holy Communion or to make a public comment afterwards to protest the desecration that took place that day. Yes, indeed, the counterfeit, pseudo-catholic Church sponsored by Canada’s Catholic Bishops for decades, has corrupted the great majority of observant Catholics.

Fellow Canadians, a watershed moment recently occurred in the history of Catholic Canada. The leaders of Christ's Catholic Church chose sacrilege over duty and calling. A few faithful Catholics in Canada might have held to a slim hope that the future of Catholicism in our nation had taken a turn for the better over the last ten or twenty years thanks to what some claimed to be a revived clergy and hierarchy. But any such hopes have been altogether dashed. The future for Canada can only be bleaker.

------------------------------------------------

I will explain again why I say the Pastors and Bishops of Canada have blood upon their hands.

The prophet Ezekiel declared:
If... you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked man from his way, he (the wicked man) shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you responsible for his death.
Along with many other Catholics, I am greatly distressed by the ongoing and virtual silence of too many Bishops on the subject of legalized child-killing in Canada. I have plead with the Bishops to take every necessary step to confront the demon of abortion in Canada which has claimed over four million unborn victims. In addition I am very troubled by the near total neglect by Bishops and their priests to teach and reinforce to those under their spiritual care the Moral Law of God, as defined by the Catholic Church in her official teachings. These two striking failures have taken a dramatic toll on Canadian society, paving the way for a multitude of present day evils.

Lament, ye Catholics for the Wholesale Desecration of the Eucharist.

In evaluating the factors contributing to the tragedy of legalized child-killing in our nation, special notice must be taken of the desecration of the Eucharist by obstinate, dissenting Catholics living in grave sin. This widespread and large-scale practice counts as the single greatest contributing factor to Canada’s moral descent and disrespect for human life. It would be impossible indeed to account for such desecration without acknowledging the neglect and/or indifference of too many Bishops because, in fact, the oversight of the Eucharist is entrusted entirely to the Successors of the Apostles. How is it possible to foster respect for human life when disrespect for God Himself, through the Body and Blood of Christ, is not only tolerated but modeled at every Mass?

This sacrilege of handing over Jesus to His enemies, through Holy Communion, is no less a crime today than when it was first perpetrated by Pilate two thousand years ago. The Scriptures warn, “For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.” Furthermore, the Christian “cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.” Communion with Christ and communion with devils cannot be had at once. Christians, who by association, sympathies, and actions participate in devilish strategies that destroy life, family and the common good, cannot participate in Holy Communion. Unless the Holy Scriptures are lying, the implications of this truth are clear and astounding: No such wholesale sacrilegious Holy Communion could take place unless great numbers of Bishops sympathize, knowingly or unknowingly, with the work of demons!

Shockingly then, just as “pro-choice” Pontius Pilate, who was “personally opposed,” nevertheless delivered Jesus over to His enemies, the Bishops of Canada have dispensed the Body and Blood of Jesus to any and all Catholics in the Communion line, even though it is a well-known fact that as many as 90% of Catholics reject the authority and certain crucial teachings of His Church in Canada. The truly faithful Catholics have been scandalized and demoralized for decades by this officially sanctioned sacrilege.

Yes, mourn and weep, fellow Catholics: A Pseudo-Catholic Culture Flourishes in Canada.

The result of this abomination is a flourishing pseudo-catholic culture—one based not upon the mystery of the Eucharist but upon the “magic” of the Eucharist. Yes, be shocked, but not because I described it as magic. I do not defame the Eucharist. It is the Bishops who defame the Holy Eucharist. Thanks to the negligence, or perhaps simply the spiritual darkness, of Canada’s Bishops, regardless of the moral conduct or spiritual disposition of vast numbers of renegade Catholics, attendance at Mass and mere reception of Holy Communion is assumed to magically confer absolution for even grave sins and to satisfy all of God’s significant imperatives for the Catholic.

This is the horrific, practical outcome of the Bishops’ negligence and it bears repeating: Regardless of the moral conduct or spiritual disposition of vast numbers of renegade Catholics, attendance at Mass and mere reception of Holy Communion is assumed to magically confer absolution for even grave sins and to satisfy all of God’s significant imperatives for the Catholic.

Does not the recent public and sacrilegious Holy Communion offered to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prove this very claim?

This grave misrepresentation of the Catholic faith not only dishonors faithful Catholics but scandalizes the entire Christian community in Canada, many of whom are forced to conclude that Catholicism is but another cultish enemy of the true Christian faith.

The Bishops are well aware that, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, those Catholics who deny Church teaching on the intrinsic evils of contraception, abortion and sodomitic relations as well as the mortal sins of masturbation, co-habitation, fornication, pornography, adultery and divorce disqualify themselves from partaking in the Holy Eucharist. Without first giving evidence in Confession of genuine repentance followed by absolution, they may not receive the Body and Blood of Christ. Despite such explicit teaching, not only inordinate numbers of average Catholics condemn themselves through sacrilegious Communion but significant numbers of openly dissenting priests, religious, theologians, and professors do so as well. These leaders have been permitted to further corrupt the faithful by disparaging the Church’s doctrine on priestly celibacy, women’s ordination, same sex “marriage,” and other non-negotiables of the faith, all without public rebuke by the Bishops.

The dissent—if not outright heresy—from Rome’s teaching by so many Bishops themselves in regard to Catholic sexual ethics, particularly contraception, with its consequent immoral living by millions of Catholics, is bringing Canada to the brink of demographic and cultural collapse. The most egregious example of such rebellion surfaced in the Church’s last encyclical on contraception, "Humanae Vitae" in July 1968, wherein the Church reinforced its prohibition of contraception as a moral absolute. However, the Canadian bishops in their “Winnipeg Statement” of September 1968 subtly denied the truth of that encyclical. In effect their statement affirmed that there are circumstances in which fornication and adultery and sodomy are legitimate. Through sophistry, the Winnipeg Statement planted the seeds of destruction of the Canadian Catholic Church. The Bishops have dismantled chastity, a virtue that has been all but wiped off the Canadian landscape.

Shouldn’t the Bishops be warning all obstinate unrepentant Catholics that neither baptism nor the Eucharist will save them? Again, according to the Catholic Catechism, to die in mortal sin without repenting and accepting God’s merciful love is to be separated forever from Him in Hell. The Bishops know these things but their neglect or unbelief betrays them since they refuse to teach and to warn Catholics. Therefore they corrupt the faith and prove themselves not shepherds but wolves, risking the eternal salvation of millions of Canadian Catholics. The result of their distorted, devilish thinking is a collapse in the integrity of the Canadian Catholic community as a whole. An entire generation of Catholics is confused about the true means of obtaining God’s grace. Thus have the Bishops created a parallel Church composed of millions of professing Catholics whose lives day in and day out are characterized by intrinsically evil behaviours yet whose shepherds purposely shield them from the truth.

How was it that Pope Emeritus Benedict tried to set Canadian Bishops on a new path?

Which habits have the Bishops determined to change in light of Pope Benedict’s warning in October 2006? None, it would seem. In no uncertain terms, the Pope tackled the failure of Bishops to address the moral problems of Canada, specifically pointing to homosexual “marriage” and abortion and to the extreme split between the Gospel and culture, strongly evidenced by the exclusion of God in the political realm. The Pope was warning that Canadian society would continue to go amuck “in the most disturbing of ways,” through neglect of the truth and of discipline.

By continuing the unscriptural and heretical practice of granting Holy Communion to those who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, the Bishops have refused to heed Pope Benedict’s admonition. They have failed to take due diligence in defending the Holy Eucharist from sacrilege by the ordinary renegade Catholic.

The Pope’s comments politely and subtly pointed to a pervasive counterfeit culture which is supported by these sacrilegious communions and the immoral lifestyles of Catholics living in grave sin. Multitudes of such corrupted Catholics said to be “in good standing with their Church” impact every strata of Canadian society, including politics and the courts, and further degrade it with their anti-God and anti-life attitudes. Politicians, particularly pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Catholic Prime Ministers, draw special attention and indeed are capable of shocking degrees of scandal but it is the average uncatechized Catholic voter, in step with the spiritual blindness and befuddlement of Canada’s Bishops, who empowers these “pro-choice” legislators and killers of the Unborn.

Why is it that Bishops Have Failed to Mobilize the Catholic Voting Bloc?

There is perhaps no greater example of the dereliction of duty by Bishops to halt the killing of preborn children in Canada than the failure to mobilize the Catholic voting bloc by means of a strong spiritual formation which generates an authentic Catholic conscience. Legal protection for unborn children necessitates a political, legislative solution, a fact evident to even the least politically savvy of Canadians. Roman Catholic Bishops in Canada exercise moral authority over a formidable voting bloc of nearly 10 million Catholics and yet after more than forty years of legalized child killing in Canada there is no indication whatever that Catholics have been guided by the Bishops to effect this political change. It could be accomplished through the simplest of voting strategies, one solidly founded not on partisan politics but on basic moral principles.

Why must it fall to other groups to mobilize the Christians of Canada to vote effectively on behalf of preborn children? Surely if the Bishops had a will to stop the child killing in Canada a focused and comprehensive nation-wide, diocesan wide, strategy to engage every Catholic of voting age to cast a vote for legal protection of the Unborn would have yielded long ago a complete halt to the killing. God have mercy on the Bishops for their failure in this most practical of all ways to end the holocaust of the Unborn. Their inaction for decades makes them culpable in the deaths of millions of unborn children.

What then are the Political Consequences of the Counterfeit Catholic Culture?

Out of Canada’s counterfeit Catholic culture has emerged political devils such as Catholic Prime Ministers Trudeau, Chretien, and Paul Martin. Catholic Bishops were clearly in a compromised, weakened state when, in 1969, they permitted Catholic Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Catholic Justice Minister John Turner to foist the triad of legal contraception, abortion and homosexuality upon Canada, along with the liberalization of divorce laws.

Up until PM Stephen Harper’s election in 2006, Catholic Prime Ministers had managed the affairs of Canada for 38 years (except for a five month break). Every one of them without exception has flouted Catholic teaching on sexuality through their pro-contraception, pro-abortion, pro-sodomy agendas. And every one of them considered themselves good Catholics and regularly presented themselves for Holy Communion. During that 38 year reign of social devastation and spiritual ruin the Catholic Bishops failed to take steps to deal with this epic scandal. Despite the fierce defiance of Catholic teaching exhibited by the Prime Ministers there is no record of even one single occasion when a Catholic PM was denied Holy Communion. And now we have a new Catholic PM, Justin Trudeau, who likewise claims to be a serious Catholic but is probably the most strident pro-abortion PM ever.

Canada’s Bishops failed to deal with the grave scandal caused by Paul Martin, one of Canada’s recent pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Catholic PM’s, defeated in the 2006 election, who spearheaded same sex marriage in Canada and vehemently proclaimed his government’s commitment to “a woman’s right to choose” without restrictions. His Bishop, the Bishop of Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, dismissed any possibility of discipline for Martin, claiming that the PM was a “faithful member of my cathedral parish.” Ottawa’s current Archbishop Prendergast has repeatedly refused to employ Canon 915, the Church’s prescription for discipline of renegade Justin Trudeau’s scandalous statements and actions.

Profound failures such as this by the Bishops of Canada blur the line between that which is evil and that which is good and sustain the “extreme split between the Gospel and culture, strongly evidenced by the exclusion of God in the political realm” lamented by Pope Emeritus Benedict. How can such a caricature of apostolic leadership be described as anything other than the “blind leading the blind?”

Bishops Urgently Need to Implement Guidelines Provided to them by Rome.

Two sets of guidelines authored by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, later Benedict XVI, if diligently and universally honoured by the Bishops of Canada, would decidedly impact the moral climate of Canada and immediately set Canada on a path to rescuing the Unborn and reviving respect for the moral law of God.

In a 2004 letter to the American Bishops entitled appropriately “Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion” then-Cardinal Ratzinger said that those Catholics who continue to obstinately reject Church teachings must be denied Communion. He cited Canon 915 and other church documents to support this position.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in 2003, published “The Participation of Catholics in Political Life” which was directed to Catholic Bishops, Catholic politicians and all lay members of the faithful called to participate in the political life of democratic societies. Principles contained in this guide urgently need application in Canada but are constantly ignored by the Bishops.

Bishops Need to Call for a National Fast and Penance.

Much is made these days in Catholic circles of initiatives such as the “New Evangelization” and “Social Justice.” However, truly worthwhile Catholic endeavours such as these can never see the blessing of God until the fundamental errors and injustices of the Bishops are resolved. Celebrations like the 2008 International Congress in Quebec City by the Bishops with the theme “The Eucharist, gift of God for the life of the world” ought to instead be a call for a national fast whose primary purpose is repentance and conversion of Canada’s Catholic population and their leaders. God desires first of all obedience from His Bishops, certainly not festivals, celebration and song at such a time of crisis as we face. Ironically, God’s gift of life is also the Unborn…who will pay with their life for the ongoing desecration of the Eucharist.

It is past time for a Congress that enjoins Catholics throughout Canada to instead put on sack cloth and ashes, seeking repentance and forgiveness for the disobedience of the Bishops and the profanation of the Holy Eucharist.

Every day the Bishops delay, the souls of Catholics entrapped in the darkness of a false religious culture remain in great danger of eternal damnation and every day the Bishops delay, a further 300 preborn Canadians perish. Their silent scream continues to daily torment those whose Christian conscience remains unfettered by the deceptions of demons.

The prophet Amos declared:
I hate, I despise your festivals -- and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings, and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

Christ or Demons: Justin Trudeau Forces Catholic Bishops To Reveal Their True Father

Notre Dame Basilica, Montreal:
Archbishop Christian Lepine hands over Jesus Christ
to one of His enemies, Canada's #1 public sinner,
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. I Corinthians 10:2

"Canadian religious leaders were joined by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other dignitaries at a commemorative high Mass at Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal May 17 to mark the founding of Montreal 375 years ago as a Roman Catholic religious colony."

Yes, this post involves an event that occurred over two months ago but nevertheless it is hardly old news. It may, in fact, prove to be one of the biggest stories in our nation's Catholic history. Most sincerely I regret the fact that I was not in attendance at that Mass. For inexplicable reasons, even though I receive daily newsfeed alerts on the whereabouts and works of Canada's number 1 public sinner, I was unaware until the last moment of the Prime Minister's role in that event. Had I been sufficiently informed beforehand, most certainly I would have traveled to Montreal to attend and to safeguard, if warranted, the Holy Eucharist from desecration. I imagine, in retrospect, I would have been preparing myself, at just the correct moment, to suddenly stand from the balcony and shout out loudly, "Sacrilege! Sacrilege! Sacrilege! Justin Trudeau is a public sinner! He must be denied Holy Communion in accordance with Canon 915! A pox upon any clergyman in this building who would dare to commit sacrilege by handing over the Body and Blood of Jesus to one of His enemies!"

But alas, I was far from Montreal when I got the news that, only an hour ago, Public Sinner #1 had stepped forward and been served the Holy Eucharist! As I reflect upon that I still wonder why no other Catholic in Canada had managed to beat me to the punch. Surely upon learning of the Prime Minister's attendance, some other Catholic would have already imagined the exact same scandalous outcome. But no such rigid fundamentalist was in attendance.

Then again, what of the media, especially the Catholic media? If anyone had been apprised of the event surely it would be someone from LifeSiteNews or the Catholic Register. Why were they not busy in advance getting the word out to some faithful Catholic who would undertake the holy and courageous mission of defending Jesus in the Most Holy Eucharist? Canada is a big nation of over 34 million persons with 38% of them being Catholic. Why then was there not even one Catholic knight available for such a mission? Ask yourself that question.

After you've meditated upon that mystery, then consider that the Basilica, which holds about 4000 persons, had a large crowd in attendance, many of whom were the most influential clergy and laypeople of Canada. Not one of the thousands were distressed sufficiently to rise from their seats when Trudeau stepped forward for Holy Communion or to make a public comment afterwards to protest the desecration that took place that day.

Why in fact did the Catholic Register, owned by the Archdiocese of Toronto, write their report of the event absent entirely of even one negative remark or criticism, without the slightest reference whatever to official Catholic teaching? From the Register's 'About' page I highlight a couple of statements. 
Over the decades, the Catholic Register has been in the forefront of public debates concerning the Church. Whether it be education, military conscription in wartime, the battle against poverty or human rights, Register pages have been a forum for discussion and presenting the Catholic viewpoint. 
...
Today The Register tries to present a broad spectrum of views from within the Catholic community, as well as views from those outside the faith which would, in the opinion of the editor, help Catholics better understand their world. 
How peculiar indeed! But of course Cardinal Collins, the Archbishop of Toronto, was in attendance at the Mass in question.

Why, pray tell, has there been no followup from LifeSiteNews, interviewing other Bishops or Priests who attended the event? Why drop the story like a hot potato? After the tragic and scandalous reign of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and further decades of leadership by pseudo-catholic Prime Ministers I thought those representing faithful Catholics would have learned something about push-back. Could it be that this is simply another instance of LifeSiteNews being pressured to silence by their cozy friendship with Archbishop Prendergast of Ottawa, who also had a front row centre view of the Montreal sacrilege which took place? 

Yes, indeed, a watershed moment recently occurred in the history of Catholic Canada. The leaders of Christ's Catholic Church chose sacrilege over duty and calling. A few faithful Catholics in Canada might have held to a slim hope that the future of Catholicism in our nation had taken a turn for the better over the last ten or twenty years thanks to what some claimed to be a revived clergy and hierarchy. But any such hopes have been altogether dashed. The future for Canada can only be bleaker.  

I previously summarized the travesty pictured above:
Just weeks ago we witnessed the greatest scandal to take place in Canada’s recent history----made all the worse because it was televised live on national TV. At a high Mass at Notre Dame Basilica in the midst of gala celebrations for the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montreal, Justin Trudeau, a renegade Catholic, shared in Eucharistic Holy Communion. Prime Minister Trudeau defies the law of Christ pertaining to practically every social evil currently plaguing Canada, including abortion, contraception, divorce, euthanasia, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and gender theory. Nevertheless, he stepped forward to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and was enabled in his act of sacrilege by none other than the Archbishop of Montréal, Christian Lépine, a Bishop who later justified his scandalous behaviour by characterizing it as a “gesture of hope.”
The warning from Holy Scripture is clear:
Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord… For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 1 Corinthians 11:27, 29
Since that blasphemous moment in Montreal not one of the more than 30 influential Bishops and 400 priests present, including Archbishop Prendergast, has spoken up to condemn the evil perpetrated at that event or to defend the teaching of Christ. 


This will not be the last you hear about this dastardly "commemorative" Mass.

Bishops have fostered an altogether different religion in Canada and the gambit has been swallowed hook, line and sinker. How many will acknowledge this devastating reality?

Canada Celebrates While Catholic Bishops Foster Our Continued Collapse

Outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa for #Canada150

I traveled to Ottawa today with a message for the 10AM Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral and for Canada's 150th birthday celebrations. Between the pouring rain and the huge police security presence on Sussex Drive I reluctantly chose not to use my signs and loudspeaker. (Instead I used Photoshop after returning home 😏)

This was the message I went to deliver:

ARCHBISHOP PRENDERGAST, DO YOUR DUTY TO GOD

Archbishop Prendergast, do your duty to God: Discipline Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in accord with the law of Christ that his soul might be saved and the tide of evil stemmed in this great land of Canada.

Ottawa’s Archbishop is considered by many to be one of Canada’s finest Bishops. Perhaps he is, but he is surely one of Canada’s most reckless Bishops as well. Christ Himself said that to whom much is given much is required. The Archbishop has been given a station of tremendous influence in our nation’s capital. Why then has he first equivocated, then ignored, the remedy proposed by Christ and His Church to deal with the dangerous behaviour of Canada’s #1 public sinner, Justin Trudeau?

Just weeks ago we witnessed the greatest scandal to take place in Canada’s recent history----made all the worse because it was televised live on national TV. At a high Mass at Notre Dame Basilica in the midst of gala celebrations for the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montreal, Justin Trudeau, a renegade Catholic, shared in Eucharistic Holy Communion. Prime Minister Trudeau defies the law of Christ pertaining to practically every social evil currently plaguing Canada, including abortion, contraception, divorce, euthanasia, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and gender theory. Nevertheless, he stepped forward to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and was enabled in his act of sacrilege by none other than the Archbishop of Montréal, Christian Lépine, a Bishop who later justified his scandalous behaviour by characterizing it as a “gesture of hope.”

The warning from Holy Scripture is clear:
Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord… For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 1 Corinthians 11:27, 29
Since that blasphemous moment in Montreal not one of the more than 30 influential Bishops and 400 priests present, including Archbishop Prendergast, has spoken up to condemn the evil perpetrated at that event or to defend the teaching of Christ. By all appearances these consecrated men fear the wrath of men more than the wrath of God. The Catholic Church prescribes for public sinners such as Justin Trudeau the application of Canon Law No. 915, which would mandate the denial of Holy Communion as a measure to help save the sinner’s soul and also as a measure to prevent the affected community being scandalized.

Since arriving in Ottawa in 2007 the Archbishop could practically see from his front yard the rise to political prominence of Justin Trudeau and all the scandal surrounding this renegade Catholic’s denial of Church teaching. As Trudeau’s Bishop, he refused to confront Trudeau’s demon actions and to properly address the scandal in a timely fashion in accordance with Church law. Had he done so in the earliest stages, the Archbishop might have helped to save Trudeau’s soul. At the very least early action would have publicly signaled to Canada the true nature of Trudeau’s immoral character and devilish mindset. Such exposure might well have inhibited his rise to power and very possibly prevented his election to the most powerful office in the nation.

Tragically then it must be acknowledged that Archbishop Prendergast is complicit in the rise of great evil in our land because he refused to employ the Church's remedy for public sinners. There is no getting around it, the Archbishop defied Church law and spurned Christ. And, indirectly, he has endangered all of Canada and subjected even other nations to the demonic influence of Trudeau evils through millions of dollars of contraception and abortion advocacy overseas.

Archbishop Prendergast was aware that PM Trudeau would be attending—and speaking—at the commemorative Mass in Montreal several weeks ago. If Trudeau had been contacted and informed it would have been a simple matter to ensure the Prime Minister did not present for Holy Communion. Had the PM ignored such a warning, those who were Ministers of Holy Communion, including Archbishop Lépine, could have readied themselves to deny Holy Communion should Trudeau step forward. Bottom line: Had the Bishops been joined heart and mind to Christ the scandal could have been averted.

It’s Canada Day 2017 but what exactly are we celebrating in this once great nation of ours? What does God see when His gaze fixes on Canada? 50 years of unrestricted legal killing of unborn children, as many as 4 million terminated by therapeutic abortions due to a criminal code that is blind to abortion; A nation addicted to the unnatural sexual appetite of sodomy, with as many as 90% of the population practicing or supporting contraception and another huge percentage cheering on the drive to fully normalize homosexual relationships; A Supreme Court which has somehow determined from our Charter of Rights that Canadians possess a right also to euthanasia, or the more polite phrase, “physician assisted death” or the even more sanitized MAID (medical aid in dying).

What else does God see? One of the first Western nations to legally assault God’s divine plan of marriage and legitimize so called “same sex” marriage; And now these days we see unfolding in Canada Satan’s latest attack on God’s truth, that of gender ideology. Already it has started in our schools to twist the minds of our youngest children and only days ago, it was given protections under law by PM Trudeau; now the state has free reign to silence its critics and corrupt our society. On this Canada Day 2017, rather than a celebration, shouldn’t we be preparing a national day of mourning and humiliation before the Lord?

It has been announced that Archbishop Prendergast will re-consecrate the Archdiocese of Ottawa to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It is always appropriate to honour our Lady and acknowledge her miraculous role in our salvation but her message to all servants of the Lord Jesus Christ is the same:
FIRST honour my Son. Do whatever He tells you. Christ my Son instituted laws in His Church to prevent unworthy sinners from desecrating His Body and Blood. Canada is plunging into a moral abyss because for 50 years my Son is handed over to His enemies in an unholy communion and yet the Bishops of Canada fail to discipline renegade yet influential and powerful Catholics. Yet these same Bishops wish to consecrate Canada to my Immaculate Heart. How disingenuous! How hypocritical! First learn to obey my Son and the laws of the Church for which He gave His life!
The hour is late. There can be no further delay. Archbishop Prendergast, do your duty to God: Discipline Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in accord with the law of Christ that his soul might be saved and the tide of evil stemmed in this great land of Canada.

Finally, Holy Family Parish In Whitby, ON Hears Homily On Evil Of Contraception

Yesterday I traveled to Whitby to set up my signs at Holy Family Parish once again. About two months ago I was there to highlight the scandal of a pro-abortion Catholic politician receiving Holy Communion on a regular basis. This time I was there to give a warning to parishioners about official teaching on contraception as contained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I have been travelling to parishes throughout Oshawa and Whitby with this same message for the last couple months.

Recently Fr. Shenan Boquet of Human Life International had a very relevant commentary on this subject of contraception and the betrayal by clergy to teach the truth about it. His words are an excellent accompaniment to my protest.

Toronto Area Police Display Cultural Bias Against Pro-Life Witness

Chief Paul Martin says the DRPS is working hard to reach new recruits from diverse backgrounds

Unfortunately cultural bias in the Canada of 2016 is decidedly against traditional Christian morality, in particular pro-life and pro-family witness. In this posting I share the content of recent letters to the Durham Regional Police Services Chief and the Chief’s response. The letters speak for themselves but I will preface each letter with a short intro. I make public this correspondence for the sake of transparency in law enforcement, for the advancement of freedom of speech and expression and for the greater good of the pro-life community.

I look forward to the readers’ comments and reactions to these letters.

Intro: On May 28, 2016 I was displaying signs in Oshawa at Taunton Rd. and Harmony Rd. intersection as I often do on Saturdays. On one side of my sign was a graphic abortion image and on the other a related text message for passers-by.


June 14, 2016

Chief Paul Martin,
Durham Regional Police Services,
605 Rossland Rd. E, Box 911,   
Whitby, ON L1N 0B8

Dear Chief Martin,

I am a resident of Oshawa, ON. I am a former high school teacher and a retired pastor.

On Saturday May 28, 2016 I had an encounter with one of your officers in Durham Regional Police Service; or rather I should perhaps say the Durham Region Thought Police. I have video and audio on file of this encounter. Officer Lee, a motorcycle patrolman, conducted an extensive inquisition into my activity at Harmony and Taunton Roads, sometime around 2 pm, while I was holding an anti-abortion sign at that intersection. Mine was a completely innocuous law abiding exercise, although the sign, one which I have used for several years, was of a graphic nature. Graphic pictures of abortion evince a strong response from some individuals of the public, as they rightly should, since they portray the results of a bloody violent act against a fellow human being.

Officer Lee approached me asking what’s up and proceeded to inform me that my sign was very graphic and asking why I was on the street corner with such a sign, inferring that I was engaged in doing something wrong. I informed Officer Lee immediately of my Charter rights in regard to freedom of expression and asked him what, if anything, I was doing contrary to the law, but it made little difference to his modus operandi, which, throughout the encounter, essentially consisted of harassing me with his opinions and point of view. He immediately insisted that I produce identification, without even providing just cause for his intervention.  I told him I was reluctant to lay down my sign in order to get ID from my car because I’d been through this routine before and it served no good purpose but he was adamant and so I complied and went to my car while he accompanied me.

From that point onward a discussion ensued wherein Officer Lee lectured me on why I shouldn’t be exposing others, particularly children, to such images. His opinion was clearly favoring the so called right of “Choice” i.e. the choice of women to kill their pre-born children and when I countered with my opinion he kept insisting that “it all depends on what you believe…what you feel.” So apparently Officer Lee’s opinion took precedence in the matter and he was determined to press that opinion as far as he could, against my protestations. Then followed a host of questions about how many other times had I been stopped by officers in the past, why did I feel so strongly about the issue that I would hold a sign at this street corner, had someone in my family been affected somehow by abortion, why is abortion a personal issue for me, why don’t I protest instead outside an abortion clinic (Officer Lee recommended that as a better choice!), etc. During the questioning I kept reminding him that he was violating my Charter rights but he simply dismissed my protests with comments such as “How, by talking to you?”

After he had run out of questions and excuses he finally said, “I’m going to read your sign before I let you continue.” The other side of my sign had some text referring to Canada’s evil culture and again, Officer Lee was making it sound as though my right to say such things was in question. We walked back to my sign and then he started to write in his notes the words that were on my sign, interrogating me all the while on my meaning. I offered to email him a copy of the text on the sign but he declined the offer, continuing the interrogation as he went down the list of items on my sign. Clearly this was pure intimidation and animus. He never let up first nor last on forcing his opinions upon me, availing himself of every opportunity to demean or contradict the message I was delivering. At no time did I solicit his comments or his opinions, rather I tried unsuccessfully to have him leave me alone and allow me to get back to my business at hand. I protested, “I have a different opinion Officer and I’m allowed to have it. We’re not living in North Korea or in Russia…” Eventually Officer Lee could avoid the question of the law and my rights no longer, although he never conceded at any point that he was overstepping his bounds, and when I finally  insisted “Am I free to go now, Sir?” he replied “Oh, I’m not stopping you…”

What outrageous behaviour for a professional in the service of the public! But that wasn’t the end of it. He went on to take a cell phone picture of the graphic photo on my sign and then interrogated me on where exactly I had obtained that photo, i.e. the source from which I purchased it. I answered his question precisely, wished him a good day and returned to my sign duty.

On July 7, 2015, a little less than a year ago, the Kingston police issued a statement on Facebook and Twitter regarding pro-life sign protests happening in their city at the time (see media story attached to this letter). This was their message to the public:

We are receiving numerous calls regarding “Pro-life” or “Anti-Abortion” protests happening around the city. We are aware of the activity, and the graphic nature of the images on display. To this end, we have sought a legal opinion from the Kingston Crown Attorney, which advises that this conduct is not an offence under law, and is protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, specifically freedom of expression. We are aware that some may find these protests offensive, but we would kindly ask that you refrain from calling police to report.

A few years ago I was engaged in a perfectly peaceful and lawful pro-life activity in another city in Canada when I was seriously hampered and harassed by police officers without cause. I was strongly advised to file a human rights complaint against the police. I did not do so at the time and it would be a sad day for Durham Region, for Ontario and for Canada should I have to do so the next time a Durham Regional police officer misuses his authority and position.

Chief Martin, I trust that you will do everything in your power to ensure your officers are fully informed of the law regarding this type of demonstration and that they respect the rights of all law abiding citizens to express themselves, whether officers are in agreement or not. It’s simply the only professional response acceptable and it should be the only one tolerated.

Regards,

Info: By mid-September I still had not received an acknowledgement or response from the Chief of Police. For reasons stated in the second letter below I decided to write again. On this occasion I sent copies to other individuals listed.

RE: My Previous Letter Of June 14, 2016 Remains Unanswered

Dear Chief Martin,

I refer to my previous letter of June 14, 2016, copy attached, which remains unanswered to date, more than ninety days later. The letter demanded time and effort on my part and the incident which it described was quite unsettling and frustrating. Should it be altogether dismissed or unworthy of so much as a form letter by return mail? Although I did not specifically request a response, I certainly hoped to receive an acknowledgement of the same and at least a comment or two, perhaps offering some perspective on my concerns. My letter was hand delivered to a female staff person at your office reception desk.

I assume you received my letter but of course, without receipt of a reply, I cannot be certain. I therefore feel compelled to write this follow-up correspondence. I cannot help thinking that, had I been a member of the LGBTQ community who was reporting an instance of unjust discrimination or interference by a DRPS officer, my concerns would certainly have merited a quick reply of support and encouragement. Isn’t that what outreach activities relating to diversity and inclusion would mandate?  Am I or my politically incorrect cause to be excluded from the conversation exploring all the “dimensions of our diverse Region”? Is political correctness blinding us to the concerns of fellow Canadians? I can’t help but wonder.

With sincere regards,


Enclosure

Info: The following is a jpeg of the police chief’s response of October 5th. I was appreciative of the fact that he finally went on record with a response although it seems to me that he skirted altogether the facts of the matter and the concerns I voiced.


This is hardly the first time such bias showed up at my doorstep. However, there have been exceptions, this posting has further details.

Holy Family Parish in Whitby Shelters Pro-Abortion Liberal MP from Church Law


UPDATE :  see update at end of posting.

Sunday past, August 28, 2016, I headed out to Holy Family Parish in Whitby to educate parishioners on Church teaching in regard to pro-abortion Catholics and Holy Communion. Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes self-identifies as a practicing Catholic and receives Holy Communion at Holy Family parish, yet she publicly supports abortion, euthanasia, same sex “marriage”, LGBTQ lifestyles and transgender "rights". Some parishioners have complained to the parish priest, Father Laszlo Nagy, about this scandalous situation but to no avail.

[Unfortunately scandals associated with Canon 915 are rife in today’s Catholic Church in the West. On the same day that I made my case outside Holy Family parish, a group of fellow Catholics were protesting at the parish attended by US Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine. See coverage here, here and here. These Catholics are on the cutting edge of a true reformation urgently needed in today’s Catholic Church. There should have been hundreds, even thousands of Catholics who appeared in that protest.]

Father Nagy shows up in the video at about the 14 minute mark but unfortunately it was not the pleasant type of introduction that I would have wished for. I was obviously still quite agitated at that point by the parish ladies who, just a few moments prior, were intent on knocking over my sign. Sadly, this priest seemed entirely unconcerned with my message and instead inferred, over and over, that I was doing something wrong in using his name on my sign without his permission!!! God help us! We are in a grievous state indeed!!

UPDATED August 31st
Catholic MP Celina C-Chavannes tweeted out the following in the early hours of this morning:
