Defrauding the poor: Justin Trudeau's latest attack on Family



The Liberal Party of Canada is fascist. For those who think not, they should consult Mussolini. Not that Justin Trudeau has read Mussolini, as he lacks the brain power. 

Truth be told, Benito Mussolini is possibly the most influential political theorist in North America and western Europe. In fact, the fascist State in Canada, the US and western Europe has moved beyond even what Mussolini envisaged. 

However Il Duce provided all the tools for the toolbox of contemporary fascism. Do not be fooled by his bombastic speeches or public preening on balconies: Mussolini was a highly intelligent man who's political ideology is now in the ascendency. 

(Mussolini, Doctrine of Fascism, 1932):
The Fascist State, the highest and most powerful form of personality, is a force, but a spiritual force, which takes over all the forms of the moral and intellectual life of man. . . . It is the form, the inner standard and the discipline of the whole person; it saturates the will as well as the intelligence... the Fascist conception of the State is all embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. Thus understood, Fascism, is totalitarian, and the Fascist State - a synthesis and a unit inclusive of all values - interprets, develops, and potentates the whole life of a people...
Fascism, in short, is not only the giver of laws and the founder of institutions, but the educator and promoter of spiritual life. It wants to remake, not the forms of human life, but its content, man, character, faith. And to this end it requires discipline and authority that can enter into the spirits of men and there govern unopposed.... if liberalism spells individualism, Fascism spells government....the Fascist State is a will to power and to government.

Most readers are aware of the Liberal Governments ongoing and accelerated demonic attack on life in the womb of the mother or at the end of life. However, most may not be aware of another, perhaps more insidious attack on life: the financial impoverishment and strangulation of Canadian families. 

From Everyday for Life Canada

The Justin Trudeau Liberal government is doing its best to further weaken the family in Canada. Canadians pay to intentionally kill tens of thousands of unborn babies each year, all covered by the government health plan. There is plenty of money, to the tune of $650,000,000, to export abortion to the rest of the world. Since Canada legalized last year euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, funds are there to have Canadians killed at the hands of the state.

However, beginning in 2016 income splitting for families where only one parent works is no longer permitted. The Family Tax Cut has been removed. This gave families where one parent works and the other stays home to raise the children. If the working mother or the father was making say $80,000 a year, by transferring some of that income to the other spouse the family could get up to a $2,000 tax refund. This is no longer possible thanks to the Liberal government.


Please read the entire article here. 


You will also notice dear readers that the "establishment" that runs and controls the visible organs of the Church has virtually nothing to say about this vile attack on families. Salt and Light TV would have us believe that all is peachy keen in Canada; the Church is in great shape (witness the latest with Fr. George Smith's "Painter's Mass"  scandal) and if we all just bring in another 100,000 or so "refugees" all will be well. LIkewise the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops drone on endlessly about the same utter failures. You will not hear from them - with noble exceptions - that abortion, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, masturbation etc. are all intrinsically evil. 

You did not hear a peep out of them during the elections when it came to standing up for families against big government and big business who conspire to artificially keep food prices high (all under the pretext for decent incomes for farmers - what about decent food prices for families?) to ensure that a small group of "farmers" remain exceedingly rich, and to keep families poor. In Ontario, for example, Gay Lea is now so rich it subsidizes tuition fees paid by employees (in other words, long-suffering purchasers of over-priced dairy products in Ontario are paying these tuition fees). In Quebec, we have the Saputo Family, whose wealth in estimated over $10 billion. This did not stop them from closing four plants due to the usual excuses. 

You noticed, dear readers, that during the last federal election in Canada, the bishops distinguished themselves with their silence. Did you ever hear from them a word about the outrageous cost of food in this country? May staple food items (milk, cheese, meat, etc.) being three times more expensive than in the United States. No, they were silent. But then, a quick look at these men shows us that the vast majority have a hankering for food, and we know that the widow's mite pays the food bills. 


Archbishop of Miami - Wenski's residence. Reflective of austere piety 

In the United States as well, there is an enormous campaign underway to bring these "refugees" into the country, to not build a Wall keeping illegal migrants out etc. A number of bishops have distinguished themselves in their hysterical outbursts. They have even been joined by powerful, very rich and corrupt religious Orders, such as the Jesuits and the Franciscans. Fr James Martin S.J., (friend of the rich and powerful in Hollywood) and Fr.Daniel P. Horan OFM (incessant jet-setting jogger) are excellent representatives of this fraudulent concern for the poor.  Returning to Canada, the Basilians - once a great teaching Order now reduced to jet-setters and dissenters - were finally driven out of Holy Rosary by Cardinal Collins. 

A little digging shows that this love for the poor reveals impure motives. The USCCB stands to lose billions of Federal monies; huge organizations like Catholic Relief Services (who also pay their employees outrageous six figure salaries) also stand to lose hundreds of millions of tax payers dollars.

Basilian Superior, Fr. George Smith stages a "Painter's Mass" at Salt and Light HQ

The abuse of the Liturgy is an ongoing scandal that never seems to end. Here, we bring to readers attention the illicit use of reprobated earthenware and shocking attire akin to the results of a malfunctioning painter's spray can on  painter's overalls. Fr. Smith's liturgical efforts can best be described as a "Painter's Mass" - tragically, more of a mess (no pun intended), if truth were told.

Fr. Smith, during the course of his sermon spoke about


"Even within our [?] Church there are those who seem to resemble the stiff-necked Israelites who rejected the Prophets of Yahweh, as Jeremiah describes them in our first reading"

"Our" Church, Fr. Smith? I though it was Christ's. But I digress. 

I wonder to whom he is referring as these "stiff-necked Israelites"? Surely not St. Pope John Paul II, who gave us, amongst other things, Redemptionis Sacramentum, which forbade the use of earthenware as sacred vessels. 

I ask Fr. George Smith: do you consider St. Pope John Paul II a "stiff-necked Israelite"? If not, why do you disobey the Law of the Church? If, perchance, it was another priest who handed you the illicit and reprobated earthenware, why, as Superior, did you not admonish your brother priest and refuse to use materials that are not fit for the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord?


Dear readers, please do not forget to pray for Fr. Smith and his fellow Basilians. They desperately need our prayers. 

Fr. George Smith in his "painter's" chasuble

Notice the earthenware ciborium (St. John Paul II's "chalice" perhaps?) to the left of the picture. 

Is Fr. Smith also using St. John Paul II's "chalice"? 


Just a moment! Here we have another papal "chalice"!!
Why it is one of just 1000 or so, illicitly used at WYD in Toronto
behind the back of the gravely ill Pope John Paul II 


Redemptionis Sacramentum: 

3. Sacred Vessels
[117.] Sacred vessels for containing the Body and Blood of the Lord must be made in strict conformity with the norms of tradition and of the liturgical books. The Bishops’ Conferences have the faculty to decide whether it is appropriate, once their decisions have been given the recognitio by the Apostolic See, for sacred vessels to be made of other solid materials as well. It is strictly required, however, that such materials be truly noble in the common estimation within a given region, so that honour will be given to the Lord by their use, and all risk of diminishing the doctrine of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharistic species in the eyes of the faithful will be avoided. Reprobated,*therefore, is any practice of using for the celebration of Mass common vessels, or others lacking in quality, or devoid of all artistic merit or which are mere containers, as also other vessels made from glass, earthenware, clay, or other materials that break easily. This norm is to be applied even as regards metals and other materials that easily rust or deteriorate.

Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association goes hardcore "LGBTQ" at its 2017 AGM

Every picture tells a story. No further commentary is necessary. Evil. 


Just when you think it cannot get worse it does. It has been recently revealed that the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) has been endorsing abortion

More recently, this blog published the fact that the out-going President of OECTA, Ann Hawkins re-tweeted  a video from the so-called "Women's March" that was a strident call-out in favour of abortion

OECTA simply goes from promoting one evil to another. 

Now, ramping up its militant support of the "LGBTQ" agenda (though I have heard homosexual activists complain about the inclusion of "Q"ueer - so, watch out OECTA, you may yet come in the cross-hairs of the homosexualists, who may order you to remove the "Q") - OECTA has proudly displayed two - yes TWO - "Rainbow" flags at its AGM.  One notices that there is only ONE Canadian flag, one Ontario flag. Obviously  identifying with homosexuality is more important to OECTA than being Canadian. 



One "rainbow" flag is not enough. OECTA needs two!!


But it goes far, far deeper. One notices that there is NO Crucifix. OECTA has long ceased to identify with Our Lord Jesus Christ. How could they, since they openly promote one of the four sins that cries to Heaven for vengeance? In fact, displaying a Crucifix would be the height of hypocrisy. We can accuse OECTA of many things, but we cannot accuse them of being hypocrites. They are, openly and unabashedly militantly pro-homosexual. As such, why would they display the God-Man Crucified?


Disgraceful. The evil of OECTA displayed for all to see


We have to ask ourselves very serious questions:

Where are the bishops? Why are they silent?

Where are the priests? Why are they silent?

Where are the parents? Why are they silent?

Where are the Catholic teachers? Why are they silent? 

Are there any Catholic teachers left?

Where are the respective Boards of Education and the Trustees?  Why are they silent?



OECTA gloats over its "new rainbow popup banners". Disgraceful gender-ideology propaganda


Dear readers, OECTA is not Catholic. It is a militant, extremist, globalist activist union that is corrupting children with false doctrine and imposing anti-Catholic ideologies.

OECTA is being enabled by the silence of churchmen - both bishops and priests - who are either emasculated cowards; or, even worse, dissenters themselves. 


Why is a Canadian based "Catholic" teachers union attacking a foreign government
at its AGM? Very, very strange behaviour. 

Why are they displaying photos from the pro-abortion "Women's March" in foreign city? 


OECTA is being enabled by dissident do-nothing Boards of Eduction, who sit idly by while heretical teachings and falsehoods are being hoisted on innocent children. These Boards and Trustees are also not Catholic. If they were Catholic they would intervene and fire those teachers who are promoting heresy and perversion. "Oh, they will appeal to the Ministry of Education", appeasers will argue. Well, let them. At least the Boards and Trustees will have expressed themselves. Then, if there are no options left, it is time to shut this sickening masquerade down. 

I call upon the bishop/s to begin the process by demanding according to Canon Law that OECTA cease to use the word "Catholic". If these Prelates do not take action, they too, will have to answer before God for their role in the corrupting of the souls of innocent children. 


My, my OECTA now promotes hermaphrodites.

The Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association is PRO-ABORTION? ~ very SERIOUS Questions!

Dissenter from Catholic teaching
Just another "OECTA teacher" 

Just how seriously does the Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association (OECTA) take the grave sin of abortion?

You, dear readers, decide. I ask you to consider the case of Ann Hawkins, who just stepped down after her term as OECTA President. A brief review of her Twitter feed discovers, a number of things, including her extreme political radicalism and her re-tweeting a militant call out in favour of abortion from the dreadful, pro-abortion so-called "women's March". 

The Second Vatican Council calls abortion an "unspeakable evil". It would seem that OECTA does not share the considerations of the Fathers of the Council.  

As President of a "Catholic" teacher's union, Hawkins is silent about Our Lord, and silent about things we would expect a Catholic teacher to support in educating children and young people as Catholics. 

Obviously, the membership of OECTA were not concerned that Hawkins maintained a highly polemical and secular political Twitter account that consistently endorsed, supported, re-tweeted politicians and public figures who are well known for their animosity towards the Catholic Church. 

A few examples of Hawkins' extremist support include: George Takei,  Van Jones, (the Chicago-born card carrying communist), Andrea Horwarth (militant pro-abortion Canadian politician), Chelsea Clinton, Michael Moore and Margaret Atwood. None of these people one could consider even marginally favourable towards Christ and His Church. 

One final question. What are we to make of the teachers who elected Ann Hawkins as President? 

Dear readers, please watch the video, review the screenshots and draw your own conclusions. If you have children in the "Catholic" school system in Ontario, prayerful consider withdrawing them and placing them in a spiritually safer environment. 

Stay tuned to this blog, much more to come on OECTA and its radical, open and public agenda of undermining the Catholic Faith.

BREAKING NEWS: Our Lady of the Atonement has been transferred to the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter



The Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter has sought a ruling from Rome on the actions taken against Our Lady of the Atonement parish in San Antonio, Texas. Rome has spoken, the parish has been transferred to the Ordinariate. This is a major defeat for the vicious, arch-modernist Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller.

March 21, 2017
HOUSTON — The first Pastoral Provision parish in the U.S. is coming into the Ordinariate.

Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church and its school, the Atonement Academy, have been transferred to the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, effective March 21. At the direction of the Holy See, all parishes of the Pastoral Provision are to be incorporated into the Ordinariate: a special diocese for Roman Catholics who were nurtured in the Anglican tradition or whose faith has been renewed by the liturgy and evangelizing mission of the Ordinariate. 



Some background: 

On January 19, 2017, Archbishop Garcia-Siller, the Archbishop of San Antonio removed Fr. Christopher Phillips from the parish of Our Lady of the Atonement. Fr. Phillips is a priest of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. 

Garcia-Siller participating in false religious practices
The radical arch-modernist archbishop claimed he had concerns about the liturgical and parish life that Fr. Phillips had built up which had - according to Garcia-Siller - an "identity separate from..." the other parishes in San Antonio. This is code for the Catholics at Our Lady of the Atonement, under Fr. Phillips' leadership,  in not participating in the types of liturgical services promoted by Garcia-Siller.

As you will notice, dear readers, in distinction to his distaste for Catholic rituals, the Archbishop has no difficulties with being an active participant   when it comes  to engaging in  false religious practices. Such practices are strongly condemned by the Church as gravely sinful. Catholics are absolutely forbidden to take part in religious practices that deny the Incarnation of Our Lord. 

Fr. Thomas Crean, O.P., writes: 

Fr. D. Prummer OP, writing in 1910, affirms in his Manuale Theologiæ Moralis that it is never licit for a Catholic to take part in a non-Catholic cult with the intention of worshipping God in the manner of non-Catholics, more acatholicorum. Such an act, he declares, is nothing other than a denial of the Catholic faith.  In the same year, writing an article on ‘Heresy’ for the Catholic Encyclopœdia, Fr. J. Wilhelm SJ affirms that a Catholic may attend non-Catholic services, but only ‘provided no active part be taken in them’. In an article on the same subject, the Dictionnaire de théologie catholiquereiterates, in 1920, that active participation in non-Catholic rites is toujours interdite – the reason being that it is ‘equivalent to a denial of the Catholic faith’. In 1930, Fr. B. Merkelbach OP in his Summa Theologiæ Moralis writes that ‘active participation in the sacred things of a [non-Catholic] public cult is illicit, since it implies approval of the worship and a recognition of the sect.’

St. Joseph, the Patron of Canada

St. Joseph, Patron of Canada
March 19th is one of the most special days in the Church in Canada. It marks that day on which we celebrate our Patron saint. Most of the country, sadly, will ignore him. Let us not. May St. Joseph bless each and every one of you.

Let us also take a moment to wish our beloved "Papa", Joseph Ratzinger, a blessed Feast Day. 

St. Joseph's Oratory. Montreal
St. Joseph was just, he was immersed in the Word of God, written, transmitted in the wisdom of his people, and precisely in this way was prepared and called to know the Incarnate Word - the Word who came among us as a man - and predestined to care for, to protect this Incarnate Word; this remains his mission forever: to care for the Holy Church and Our Lord. We entrust ourselves in this moment to his care, we pray that he help us in our humble service. We go forward in courage under this protection.

The strange case of Archbishop Chaput's blasphemies and support of the dual-covenant heresy

Archbishop Chaput  with Jews. Did he preach Christ Crucified? 
For a Catholic bishop to be accused of blasphemy is a very serious charge. I therefore have reflected upon this for well over a week before posting. However, it must be said, Catholics have a right to know if their churchmen lead them astray. Archbishop Charles Chaput has made for himself a reputation as a man of solid, Catholic orthodoxy. But is he? 

Unfortunately, either to pander to the very powerful Jewish lobby, or because he truly believes in the "dual-covenant" heresy, or a mixture of both, Chaput believes that "anti-semitism" is blasphemy. 

Chaput wrote:  
"For Catholics, anti-Semitism is more than a human rights concern. It’s viewed as a form of sacrilege and blasphemy against God’s chosen people".

Archbishop  Chaput: To preach Christ to the Jews is an obligation and duty 

Yet, one can only blaspheme Almighty God. So says the Catholic Church, so it is written in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC). Jews are not gods, nor are they an emanation of God, nor are they collectively God's Will. They are men, and mere men only. They are no better, nor worse then any other nation on Earth. At one time they were put aside to be the nation that would give the Messiah to the World. In that, they succeeded, but in doing so they also crucified the Messiah, rejected Him and continue to reject Him. This is the tragedy of the Jewish Nation. 

From the CCC: 

2148 Blasphemy is directly opposed to the second commandment. It consists in uttering against God - inwardly or outwardly - words of hatred, reproach, or defiance; in speaking ill of God; in failing in respect toward him in one's speech; in misusing God's name. St. James condemns those "who blaspheme that honorable name [of Jesus] by which you are called."78 The prohibition of blasphemy extends to language against Christ's Church, the saints, and sacred things. It is also blasphemous to make use of God's name to cover up criminal practices, to reduce peoples to servitude, to torture persons or put them to death. The misuse of God's name to commit a crime can provoke others to repudiate religion.

Likewise, one can only commit Sacrilege against the Sacraments etc. So says the Catholic Church, So it is written in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  

From the CCC: 

2120 Sacrilege consists in profaning or treating unworthily the sacraments and other liturgical actions, as well as persons, things, or places consecrated to God. Sacrilege is a grave sin especially when committed against the Eucharist, for in this sacrament the true Body of Christ is made substantially present for us

Unfortunately Archbishop Charles Chaput does not think God's ways apply to the Jews. Incredibly, as we have read, the Archbishop seems to believe that a person who is an "anti-semite" (if ever there was a misnomer, it is the word "anti-semite" etc.) is a blasphemer and sacrilegious. 

Another time, Chaput also wrote: for the theologically liberal and Americanist, First Things
"... the Jewish people continue to exist because their covenant with God is alive and permanent. God’s Word is the organizing principle of their identity..."

Cardinal Dolan with anti-Catholic bigot,
 Abraham Foxman of the ADL 

No, Archbishop Chaput, it is you who are the blasphemer and sacrilegious one, who dares to state mere men can be blasphemed. In deifying the Jews, you blaspheme. There is but one Jew who is a Divine Person, Our Lord Jesus Christ. The very Jew whom you so persistently refuse to proclaim to the unbelieving Jews in their darkness. Your Excellency you have objectively sinned against the First and Second Commandments in making these claims.  

In congratulating the Jews for celebrating their false religion, as you did in First Things, you make the erroneous claim that God's covenant with the Jews is "alive and permanent". Wrong. It was abolished when Our Lord ascended upon the Cross to draw all unto Himself. (c.f. John 12:32). 

You further claim that God's word is the "organizing principle of their identity". Wrong again.  It was indeed, up to the coming of Our Lord, but the Jews rejected their Messiah, Crucified Him and continue to this very day to oppose Him and His Church. They therefore 
do not follow God's word. If they did, they would believe in Our Lord Jesus Christ. 

The Church, of whom you are an Archbishop is the New Israel, the Old Law is abolished, and the New and Eternal Covenant sealed in Christ's Divine Blood which is for all men, Jew and Gentile alike. In denying the truth to the Jews you commit an objective grave sin against charity, for all men should know the Truth. Why are you denying it to the Jews? Sadly, the confused (or cowardly?) Archbishop is merely following the "dual-covenant" heresy which a number of heresiarchs in Rome are promoting. 

The greatest act of "anti-semitism" is to refuse to proclaim Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Jews. Sadly, though, Archbishop Chaput seems far too concerned with what the Anti Defamation League (ADL) thinks, then what Our Lord thinks. In 2005, in Spain, the Archbishop told the ADL that the Holocaust was the "central tragedy of our times". Wrong, Your Excellency it was and remains the rejection of sin that is the central tragedy and its primary manifestation in the Holocaust of abortion. 

I close  reminding readers (and the Archbishop, if he or his handlers ever come across this post) that the ADL, particularly under the leadership of Abraham Foxman, is one of the most vicious anti-Christ organizations in the United States. Incredibly, this did not dissuade Chaput's fellow churchman, Timothy Cardinal Dolan (with pectoral Cross hidden - see below in photo) from gleefully posing with Foxman and co-religionist, Susan Rice (also known for her militant support of homosexuality, abortion etc.). Not to be outdone, the American Jewish Committee strives to distinguish itself in advocating evil such as same-sex "marriage. This has not in any way incommoded Archbishop Chaput from appearing before them.  


Cardinal Dolan, Abe Foxman, and Susan Rice

They, just like their pharisaical forefathers before them, hate Our Lord and would re-crucify Him if they had a second chance. How sickening it is to see a Catholic Archbishop abandon the ranks of the Apostles and join vicious blood-thirsty Pharisees who goaded the ignorant masses into demanding the Crucifixion of the Lord of Glory. Faced with that outpouring of hatred, Our Divine Lord countered it with, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do". 



It is a frightening thing to ask: can the same be said of a Catholic churchman? Can an Archbishop "not know what he is doing"? Truly we are in mysterious times of apostasy and confusion. 

Let us now hear what a Jewish convert has to tell us about real "anti-semitism"; that is, denying Our Lord's Truth to the Jews. 

Please, dear readers, continue to pray for the conversion of the Jewish people. Pray for the conversion of Archbishop Chaput and Cardinal Dolan.
