Rosary Bouquet for Linda Gibbons and Mary Wagner ~ come and pledge a Rosary for our Angels for Life

"The mightiest helper of the Christian people, and the most merciful, is the Virgin Mother of God".
Leo XIII, Adiutricem

As we approach the holiest time of the year, the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Our Blessed Lord, please join us in praying a Rosary for Linda and Mary who are both imprisoned in the Vanier Centre for women, in Milton, just outside Toronto. They are in prison because they are incarnating Christ's love for the unborn. They are truly, really living the Gospel of Life. During this Easter season, would not a lovely gift of fragrant prayers rising to Heaven be an appropriate gift for these two humble angels for life? A prayer for Mary and Linda, is a prayer for the unborn. 

Please visit the Facebook Page, "Easter Rosary Bouquet for Linda Gibbons and Mary Wagner" and pledge to pray a Rosary by clicking "LIKE". Your Rosary will be counted. 

Or, you may wish to email us at:torontocatholicwitness@rogers.com. 

Just write "Rosary Bouquet" in the subject line and send. Your Rosary will be counted.

Communists and fascist police in Brussels join together to attack Pro-life demonstration outside European Parliament

Moral relativism, once it has gathered strength, quickly transitions into open totalitarianism. So it was this past Monday, March 30th, that openly  communist movements (e.g.ABVV and the Juenes-FGTB)  harassed pro-life groups, to then be assisted by the fascist police, in Brussel, Belgium, who confiscated and destroyed banners of the pro-life group, Fundacja PRO- "Right to Life". 

The above link will provide you with further, detailed videos of the disgusting behaviour of the communists, with the cowardly police idly standing by, to then finally throw in their lot with the totalitarians. Truly a scene right out of the 1930s. 

The witness of St. Paul the Apostle on the evil of homosexual acts ~ to reject the Apostle is to reject Christ

The foolish heart having become "vain" [proud], became "darkened", then became a "fool"; this is the mysterious beginnings of the idolatrous heart and mind of those who are seduced into the evil of sin; such as homosexuality and excusing it. So says St. Paul. So says the man struck off his horse those 2000 years ago and given a special mission to preach the truth of the Gospel to the lustful, the wicked, the blind, the "darkened", the "unclean", the perverted gentiles who had taken up "unnatural affections". Would Our Blessed Saviour chose as his Apostle a man who would err on morality, as the homosexualists claim? It is an absurdity to think this. A rejection of St. Paul is a rejection of Christ. 

We can see a continuation of this "darkening", this "foolishness", this evil in the endless clamour for acceptance of the evil of homosexuality, most recently in the homosexualist outburst pertaining to the proposed Indiana State law on protecting Christians for violating their consciences. 
St. Paul: Romans 1, 16-30
For I am not ashamed of the gospel. For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and to the Greek. [17] For the justice of God is revealed therein, from faith unto faith, as it is written: The just man liveth by faith. [18] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: [19] Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. [20] For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; his eternal power also, and divinity: so that they are inexcusable.
[21] Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. [23] And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things. [24] Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. [25] Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
[26] For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. [28] And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient; [29] Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers, [30] Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents...

LINDA GIBBONS' next court appearance, April 7th ~ The Pro-abortion, feminist, JP was blasted by Gibbons' supporter, Mary Burnie

Linda Gibbons appeared in court today, before five supporters (one being a reporter from Lifesitenews) in a city of well over 5,000,000. Toronto's population allegedly includes approximately 63% "Christians". No clergy were amongst Linda's supporters. 

Prior to Linda's appearance, the Justice of the Peace, the pro-abortion Rhonda Roffey,  impertinently commented: "I see Miss Gibson's [sic] Fan Club is here". So agitated was this feminist, (lauded by the communist "Rabble" as a "pro-choice activist")  that she could not even get Linda Gibbons' surname correct. After a couple of delays, due to Linda's legal representative having a prior commitment, her hearing began just after 12 p.m. Linda appeared, in handcuffs, as we all arose. Handcuffs removed, Rhonda Roffey jealously asked Linda's "fan club" to "sit down"! 

Linda remained silent in solidarity with the silence of those who are being slaughtered in the womb. She privately indicated, when approached by her legal representative, that she preferred her subsequent hearings to be via video. 

Linda's next hearing will be this coming Tuesday, April 7th at 9 a.m. in Room 505 (via video). It is hoped that charges will be dropped, as happened last November 12th, 2014. 

I made a sign of prayer towards Linda, as she was led away in handcuffs. We then arose to leave to hear the voice of the Justice of the Peace again angrily call out: "sit down, sit down!". She was given a powerful and forceful counter blast by Mrs. Mary Burnie, a longtime supporter of Linda's:  "I am standing up because I'm leaving!" We left the courthouse, outraged by this feminist's arrogance. 

I for one, take it as a badge of honour to be a member of "Miss Gibson's Fan Club". 

Please pray for Linda, who is in prison for incarnating Christ's love for the unborn.

LINDA GIBBONS IN COURT: Tomorrow TUESDAY MARCH 31st ~ at the College Park Court in Toronto

"To be complacent towards abortion, as a Christian, is to portray Christ as not concerned with the issue. It's scandalous". 
Linda Gibbons

Linda Gibbons, Canada's Archangel for Life", as readers will know, was arrested last Tuesday, March 24th, on the Vigil of the Annunciation, for
incarnating Christ's love for the unborn. Adhering to the Gospel truth, that evil and lies have no rights, Linda acted in accordance with the true rights of God in defense of innocent human life. For her testimony, for her witness to the truth - like Our Blessed Saviour, before her - she was arrested and cast into prison. Linda now resides at the Vanier Centre for Women along with Mary Wagner, whose trial will be this coming April 16th. 

Youth protesting for Life and Justice in Brussels,
March 30th, 2015
Linda, along with Mary, except with one outstanding exception, Dorothy Cummings McLean, has been met with a deafening silence from the official Catholic media (at best). But this is to be expected from "cozy Catholicism", from a go-along-to-get-along mentality by powerful churchmen who have compromised with Caesar. When was the last time you heard a Prelate tell a pro-abortion politician that they are in the objective state of mortal sin, and cannot receive Holy Communion? If only we had a few good Bishop John Fishers! 

Tomorrow morning, at the College Park Court, 2nd Floor (444 Yonge; south-west corner of Yonge and College) at 10 a.m. Linda will make a court appearance. When you check in, you will be able to obtain from information  the Room in which the hearing will be held. Please, during this Holy Week make every effort to attend. Either we stand for life or we do not.

BREAKING: "MARCH FOR LIFE" in Brussels, Belgium, brings out support for Linda Gibbons and Mary Wagner

Przemyslaw Sycz, has just written to me that there was a small, but determined "March for Life", today in Brussels on a rainy, cold day. A further protest will be held outside the European Parliament, tomorrow. Both he and Jacek Kotula travelled from south-east Poland with other pro-life activists from their country. Readers will know that both gentlemen were instrumental in organizing and assisting Mary Wagner during her Gospel of Life pilgrimage to Poland, last October.

BREAKING: Bishop Luc Ravel to be "punished" by French Ministry of Defense for denouncing abortion as "a weapon of mass destruction"

His Excellency, Bishop Luc Ravel, a Catholic bishops in the French Military Ordinariate is to be "punished" by the French Ministry of Defense, for his writings. He has also been told to cease using any emblems identifying himself with the army. The bishop apparently in his words and actions, contradicts "republican values". No doubt, as a good Catholic he does. But then, so did the thousands who were slaughtered by the Revolution... 

The bishop wrote:

"...Christians feel shackled between two ideologies. On the one hand an ideology that is a caricature of God, which has contempt for man. On the other hand, an ideology that manipulates man, despising God. On the one hand, we have those who are declared and known: the terrorists of the bomb, the Prophet's avengers. On the other hand, we have terrorists of thought, the proponents of secularism, the admirers of the Republic. In what camp is a Christian to find himself"? 

"We do not want to be held hostage by Islamists, but we also do not want to be slaves of correct thought. Islamic ideology has led to 17 victims in France, but the ideology of thinking correctly [political correctness] creates annually two hundred thousand victims in the womb of the mother. Abortion has become a fundamental right and a weapon of mass destruction "
