Since faith is one, it must be professed in all its purity and integrity". Pope Francis/Pope Benedict

BOMBSHELL: US Congress under the influence and control of a foreign power! ~ IT IS NOT Russia!

Sheldon Edelson: AIPAC powerhouse and buyer of politicians. 

We have heard much about the alleged Russian influence during the US Presidential elections of 2016. The media seem to think it is a grave indiscretion, if true. Notwithstanding the desperate efforts to conjure up such a link, none is forthcoming. 

However, there is a foreign government that actually does exert overwhelming influence and power over the US Congress. So powerful is this lobby, so massive is its influence: on Wall Street, in the media, entertainment, Hollywood, academia, that virtual terror grips people when this powerful lobby is mentioned. So powerful is this lobby, that even Catholics who excoriate Mohommedan encroachment, are silent on the morally destructive influence this lobby and its allies exert over nations. So powerful is this lobby that it even sponsors foreign trips by US lawmakers to a foreign country to "educate" said Congress in its favour. NOT one word from the media, which this same entity controls. 

I speak of AIPAC. Such is the power of this lobby that it drives from office any senator or congressman who dares oppose its worldview. It controls both the Republican and Democrat Parties. Presidents bow with reverence before it. Churchmen grovel - if not before AIPAC - before its allies, such as the ADL etc. 

Don't dare talk about Islam or other powers threatening the nations of the world unless you are prepared to admit the most powerful lobby of them all. Do not forget, oh dear enemies of Islam, that the Koran is based on the Talmud. To deal with an effect, dear readers, you must deal with the cause. 

On a final note, never forget the words of the Apostle: he who denies that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of Antichrist. Make no mistake, AIPAC, its allies and agents are servants of the devil, are of the Antichrist, are what the Apostle called the "Synagogue of Satan".

Toronto District Catholic Schools have been promoting dissent on sexuality for years with encouragement from OECTA

OECTA's endorsement of the homosexual movement
The past few weeks saw the Ontario English Catholic Teacher's Association (OECTA) ramp up its militant support of deviant sexual activity. OECTA even displayed two homosexual "rainbow" flags at the union's annual convention. This blog also noticed the strident, secular, pro-abortion OECTA member, Ann Hawkins (OECTA President at the time) tweeting the most obnoxious items, including re-tweeting a call out for abortion at the so-called "women's march". 
Interesting re-tweet by leftist Hawkins promoting neocon warmonger, McCain
It was also passing strange to see Hawkins re-tweet approvingly neocon John McCain and leftists Van Jones and Michael Moore. The tweets and re-tweets seem contradictory, until one digs a bit and realizes that all our troubles are spiritual ones. What is it that unites neocons and leftists? Hatred of Christ. Hatred of Christianity. The Russian authorities are hated in the "West" because for all their failings, they support the resurgence of the Orthodox Church. Orthodoxy is an outspoken enemy of the establishment of a new world order. The Russian State, rather than fighting the Orthodox Church, supports it. Such a "symphony" of Church and State is hated in the "West".  

To translate this hatred of Christ on the local, school level, we see OECTA promoting the grossest of evils. One being homosexuality. 


OECTA marching in the "Gay Pride Parade"
Following on the passing of the GSAs by the trustees, thereby formally betraying Catholic education  - I leave it up to your imagination as to the various possibilities as to why this issue is now being studiously avoided by the Archdiocese. Yet, is this part of a more insidious infestation of the Church, perhaps going to the highest levels? Or, does OECTA have "something" on the Archdiocese? I leave that up to readers to decide. Now to our example. 

Consider the "retreat" conducted a few years ago by a Jesuit Fr. Philip Shano and Toronto-based social worker/therapist, 
John MontagueThe pamphlet promoting the event was entitled  "Seeing with Heart".  

A bit of digging discovered that Mr. Montague is also involved with organizations that dissent from the Magisterium. He is Secretary emeritus of
CALGM (Catholic Association for Lesbian and Gay Ministry). CALGM is one of a number of dissident organizations. Montague also supports "Fortunate Families"; another organization that dissents from Church teaching on homosexuality. Fortunate Families ties in with three other dissident organizations under an umbrella organization entitled: "Equally Blessed".

The Fortune Families, 2006 review of a Seeing with Heart retreat has a very false notion of the supremacy of conscience in determining a person's behaviour. 

As to Mr. Montague, Xtra, (the militant homosexual newspaper published in Toronto) has this:

John Montague, also a queer counsellor in Toronto, says that Pride is a difficult time for many queers who aren’t accepted by their own families, because they often have to witness other queers who are accepted by family. From moms hugging their drag queen sons to dads showing off their “I love my lesbian daughter” T-shirts. It’s an emotional punch to the stomach for queers who don’t have the luxury of a supportive family. It can depress the hell out of them. 

“They’ll see that and think ‘My parents would never come to this,’” says Montague. “And then they feel worse.” 

I report, you decide. 

Hop forward a few years and you have OECTA openly promoting homosexuality. Surprised? You should not be.

Here are a few other links for your consideration.

Assad of Syria is NOT our Enemy!

Dear friends, do not be fooled  by the liars in the West who would wish the destruction of Syria, especially the destruction of the 2000 year old Christian communities in that country. Please pray for Syria. 

This man is a tyrant? The Catholics and Orthodox of Syria do not think so

Jesus Wept: how we are re-crucifying Him with our "blindness of heart"


Our Lord wept tears of sadness before the tomb of his friend, Lazarus. He wept though He knew He would raise his friend to life. It was not the only time Our Lord wept. He wept over Jerusalem: its betrayal, its coldness, its hatred, its rejection of the Son of Man. 

Our Lord still weeps today. He weeps over our ingratitude, our sins, our coldness, our hatred. He weeps over our unwillingness to trust in Him. He weeps over us not living the Mass. 

I shall relay to you an example. Once, I came out of church and a fellow parishioner denounced the new Mass as "evil". I mentioned to the parishioner that the priest himself says the new Mass. I questioned whether or not it was right for someone to attend a Mass, believing that the same priest performed "evil" liturgies. My interlocutor was silent. Dear friends, this was barely a few minutes after we had all received into our bodies and souls the very Divine God Himself. 

Do we really believe? Really believe

Now, I shall confess that I have been guilty too, and for that, I am ashamed and I ask God for forgiveness. The recognition of one's sins is the beginning of repentance. I must confess that my mother's illness has helped me see my great failings and weaknesses. Seeing death, seeing the futility of life, seeing the vanities and the nonsense is good for the soul. Seeing that - without the fruit - we are but atheists who go to Mass is a good wake-up call to those who claim to be Christian. 

Jesus weeps over me, me a sinner. 

He also weeps over you, a sinner. 

He weeps over us, sinners all. 

Today, in the Liturgy according to the Ordinariate, "The Litany" is sung in procession replacing the Asperges. It is interesting to note that the prayer from "blindness of heart" precedes all other prayers against sin, except from the initial prayer against the devil. 

"From all blindness of heart; from pride, vainglory, and hypocrisy; from envy, hatred, and malice; and from all uncharitableness. Good Lord, deliver us".


It is only following this that prayers are offered against sins of the flesh, against sins of false doctrine, heresy, schism etc. 

Rightly so. 

For all these other sins ultimately come from "blindness of heart". St. Paul, (Galatians 5, 19-26), identified the effects of this "blindness": 

It is easy to see what effects proceed from corrupt nature; they are such things as adultery, impurity, incontinence, luxury, idolatry, witchcraft, feuds, quarrels, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, dissensions, factions, spite, murder, drunkenness, and debauchery. I warn you, as I have warned you before, that those who live in such a way will not inherit God’s kingdom. 


Having warned us that to continue in this "blindness of heart" will result in our condemnation, the Apostle outlines the fruit of turning towards Christ and by doing so wiping His tears away:  

Whereas the spirit yields a harvest of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, forbearance, gentleness, faith, courtesy, temperateness, purity.  No law can touch lives such as these;  those who belong to Christ have crucified nature, with all its passions, all its impulses. Since we live by the spirit, let the spirit be our rule of life; we must not indulge vain ambitions, envying one another and provoking one another to envy.


St. John, in his first Book (2, 9-11) wrote as follows, confirming the words of St. Paul: 

He who claims enlightenment, and all the while hates his brother, is in darkness still. It is the man who loves his brother that lives in light; no fear of stumbling haunts him. The man who hates his brother is in the dark, guides his steps in the dark without being able to tell where he is going; darkness has fallen, and blinded his eyes.

There are many passages of Sacred Scripture that warn us about how we are to lead our lives, how we are to treat other human beings - all created in the image and likeness of God - each and every one - yes! - every one - who were wept over by Jesus prior to His Passion. In fact, on the Cross, as He was dying for us (and we too are His crucifiers) he uttered those incomparable words of love: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do". 

We are to imitate Christ, and not re-crucify Him. This may mean that these next two weeks before Easter can be a time of true repentance, conversion. It should be a time to approach the Sacrament of Penance with a humble heart and a realization that unless we change, we are in danger of losing our souls. 

In practical terms, it means to pray much more, and criticize much, much less. It may mean to stop calling Pope Francis insulting names, to stop manifesting hatred towards him. It will mean that you need to pray for him, for the Cardinals, the bishops, the priests, your neighbour, those you hate (or think you do). It may mean that you start acting like a Christian, instead of just talking like one. 

It may mean that you have to discontinue your Twitter, Facebook accounts. It may mean that you have to stop reading pride-riddled, vainglorious, hypocritical social media, full of envy, hatred and malice. 

It will also mean that perhaps there will be one less person who is not causing Jesus to weep. 

Perhaps you, like Veronica, will finally step forward and in compassion bathe the sweat, blood and tears away from His Holy Countenance. My conversion, your conversion, will mean one less lash upon his back, one less thorn in His already bloodied brow. 

Dear friend: what is in your heart? Do you find there dwelling like a raging fever the sins of adultery, impurity, idolatry, witchcraft, feuds, quarrels, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, dissensions, factions, spite, murder, drunkenness, and debauchery? 

Now, is the time for repentance, to go before the Cross, to embrace It, to kiss the Holy Feet, to truly believe. The true Christian will find love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, forbearance, gentleness, faith, courtesy, temperateness, purity dwelling in their heart and soul.

We will still sin, we will still struggle, but in recognizing our sin, our struggle, we will come that one step closer to truly loving the Son of Man, the Lamb of God who died an ignominious death on the Cross for you and for me. St. John (1 John 2: 1-2) wrote these words of encouragement: 

Little children, the purpose of this letter is to keep you clear of sin. Meanwhile, if any of us does fall into sin, we have an advocate to plead our cause before the Father in the Just One, Jesus Christ. He, in his own person, is the atonement made for our sins, and not only for ours, but for the sins of the whole world.


"From all blindness of heart; from pride, vainglory, and hypocrisy; from envy, hatred, and malice; and from all uncharitableness. Good Lord, deliver us".

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.
