Will “Normal” Life Ever Return… Can You REMEMBER Life Before Lockdown?editor
Just about everything Tucker Carlson says about the USA applies to the UK as well. Nobody talks about Chinese Whispers any more – it’s Chinese authoritarianism screaming from the rooftops.
The one difference between the USA and the UK is that there is almost no fightback in the UK – or certainly none being reported in the media. The Keep Britain Free movement, for example, hasn’t been mentioned in any news programme, to the best of my knowledge, and there are just no commentators like Tucker Carlson or any of his peers, in this part of the world. It’s sinister in the extreme. There are occasional protests, including from churchmen in the USA, while the Catholic bishops and clergy here in the UK are fully complicit in the march of Marxism and the transformation of our system of government into blatant totalitarianism. Given that totalitarian Governments are not known for their tolerance of religion, this identifies these cowardly clergymen as “useful idiots” – by the bucketful.
Life now, during and following lockdown (now eased a little but with the possibility of a return to house arrest always hanging over us) does, indeed, resemble life in Communist China. Indeed, lockdown has already returned to several parts of England, as well as to the city of Aberdeen in Scotland. Life is horrendous now. Take a walk in any shopping centre without wearing a mask and watch the sheer terror on the faces around you. It’s going to be a walk in the park (in a manner of speaking) to keep conditioning us to the point where our memory of life before lockdown has been completely erased.
The key question is… has this been planned? Are we now into the first phase of openly totalitarian government in Scotland and the wider UK?
We can ask the question now on this platform – but for how much longer?
No sooner had I posted this thread, than the news broke that several counties in Ireland have been put back into lockdown. Watching the Irish PM in the role of a smiling assassin was chilling, his list of prohibitions delivered calmly and with confidence that “we’re all in this together” and so obedience will prevail. The atheists who were already laughing at having overthrown the Catholic Church in the Republic, must be laughing demoniacally now, for sure. Until it dawns on them that they, too, are under perpetual threat of house arrest – in whichever county they reside. And now… Breaking News, Preston (England) has been added to the list of towns going back into lockdown.
If the idea is to keep us on edge until the virus has disappeared, then it’s going to be rule by decree – i.e. totalitarian government – for the foreseeable future. DO viruses “disappear”? I’m no scientist, I don’t know. I don’t even hold a Certificate in First Aid, so is there any chance that this (less than) deadly virus will ever be eradicated? Given the way the figures are being manipulated, how would we ever really know?
And in the item to follow the live Irish briefing came the news that Nicola Sturgeon has decreed that face shields are no long sufficient in places such as hairdressing salons. A face mask PLUS shield is now essential. Honestly, you could not make this stuff up, except …
It really IS make-it-up-as-you-go-along territory – much too sophisticated for simple souls like me and moi. so if anyone can throw any light on any of this, to help us (me and moi, that is), please do…
I think the insanity has reached such depths that soon we’ll be required to purchase robots (manufactured by Bill Gates, of course, and fully equipped to administer vaccines every year, for an annual fee) to run all our errands for us, so that we can stay locked up in our houses (“safe”).
Gee and heck, as we Americans are wont to say, I wonder whether your bishops will decree that robots may receive Holy Communion in our stead?
As to your lead question, as Patrick Healy keeps reminding us, I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but it seems that viruses do indeed disappear, though opinions vary as to why. The servants of the globalists will, true to their well-paid perfidy and forked tongues, claim that they disappear because of public health measures. For example:
Others more fully possessed of integrity will claim that they disappear because herd immunity is established.
I think a better question would be, “Will totalitarian governments, who use this Virus from Outer Space to destroy our freedom, ever disappear?”
Answer: only when the Consecration of Russia is carried out, according to the express wishes of Heaven.
Much as it kills me to admit it, your post is spot on every step of the way.
It’ll be a while before the totalitarian governments disappear – because it doesn’t look like the Consecration of Russia will be happening any time soon.
And thus, cleverly, she commented on RCA Victor’s two key point sin one sentence.
Anyway, in case the lockdown ever really does end and everyone gets back to work, here’s a great idea for your first day back…
The formal request for the Consecration of Russia was made in 1929 at Tuy https://fatima.org/about/consecration-of-russia/the-vision-of-june-13-1929 Our Lord when He appeared to Sr Lucia in Rianjo https://fatima.org/news-views/the-revelation-at-rianjo-a-fatima-anniversary-august-1931 linked this to the Sacred Heart revelations and the failure to Consecrate France to His Sacred Heart. On the Feast of the Sacred Heart (June 17, 1789), exactly one hundred years to the day from when Saint Margaret Mary had been given that revelation of the great designs of Heaven for France, the Third Estate rose up and proclaimed itself the National Assembly, stripping King Louis XVI of his legislative authority. A mere four years later, on January 21, 1793, the revolutionaries sent the King to his death on the guillotine as if he were a common criminal. If Our Lord linked these two revelations Himself, then there is good reason to believe that we are going to be given 100 years from 1929 before any serious chastisement. 2029 isn’t that far away . . .
“The key question is… has this been planned?”
“Nothing in politics happens by accident.” – FDR
I looked at your link but the trouble I have now is that I just don’t trust scientists any more, just as I don’t trust priests and bishops. They’ve all let us down one way or another during this pandemic and I don’t trust any one of them now.
I don’t either, except for those doctors who are trying to get the word out about hydroxychloroquine as an effective treatment. That article I linked to was definitely not in the camp of truth, I posted it as an example of the equivocation that comes from those who are compromised.
Would you say that those counties in Ireland, to which you refer above, have been “corked”…. ? 🙂
I would – definitely! And since I acknowledged that you were right “every step of the way” in your comment at 7.35pm, I thought I’d underline that here (and I’m almost sure this was filmed in County Cork 😀 )
Another step along the way.
As I watched the sickening spectacle of an excuse for a Prime Minister, Michāel Martin, I couldn’t but lament for an Ireland I greatly fear never to be seen again.
The man in the first video posted by Bill has obviously just received his ticket for the next Catholic Truth conference!
Imagine if it had been a complimentary ticket 😀
At this time in England, having been to Service Stations, a Hospital and a number of shops in the last week, life is getting worse rapidly. Most people wear masks, I’ve seen Children wearing masks and we have cowardly Priests who simply say to Parishioners struggling to breath in 34 degrees heat at Mass “we follow the rules of the Catholic Bishops of England & Wales.” It’s a simple roll over for Boris Johnson and Bill gates. What awaits the ‘Sheepish Priests,’ Parishioners and the general public?
Watch this video and it will chill you!
“…consider taking a therapy session with our partners…”?
I’m not drawn to that sort of dramatic presentation with assertions not supported by facts. Encouraging stockpiling again – bad. I’m still recovering from the memory of empty supermarket shelves a few months back. All of that, plus the reference to Israel – that’s always a huge red light in my world – made it less “chilling” than “off-putting” for me, to be honest.
And that’s unusual, for the material which you normally publish is generally excellent. Stone cold facts from reliable sources make me sit up. I know too many people who are mired in conspiracy theories of all kinds, to take the “drama” too seriously.
One thing that did hit home was Trump’s apparent enthusiasm for masks and vaccines these days; he hasn’t, it seems, really understood Archbishop Vigano’s letter.
I still think God will use him in the end because I don’t believe he’s “in on it” as inferred in that video. I think he’s misinformed, perhaps somewhat confused because some, at least, of those advising him will be people he admires, so I’m hanging fire on that judgement for the moment.
It was good of you to post the video but I have to agree with editor that this guy is a bit over the top. He makes a few valid points but then goes off in tangents.
I can hardly remember what life was life before lockdown – it seems like (it was) a totally different world.
I can’t help thinking that life will never go back to what it was when we were free to come and go and it was taken for granted that we could choose what to wear, where to go and who to have in our homes. This nonsense about being allowed so many people from only 3 households – what’s that all about? It is completely random, just a way of a politician saying “I can tell you to abide by this rule, like it or lump it”.
It’s terrible and nobody seems to be turning a hair, everybody seems to think this sort of life IS normal! That’s the scary thing!
The simple truth is that unless we see a miraculous overnight change in public opinion, the present state of affairs will remain our “new normal” with worse to come. But worry not for Our Lady has a pleasant surprise waiting just beyond the bleak horizon.
It WAS a totally different world, but this nightmare has something in common with Vatican II: little did we suspect that Communists, disguised under various deceptive political labels, had installed themselves at almost all the levers of power, just waiting for the right crisis to enact their tyrannical decrees.
Likewise, when Vatican II was convened, little did the Catholic world, and especially the bishops, suspect that Communists and Freemasons, disguised as prelates and theologians, had positioned themselves to enact and steamroll their revolution.
Absolutely right. And they did it just as suddenly, taking everyone by surprise. It will all come out in the wash one day!
And it’s gonna be a heck of a laundry load!
Maybe this is the answer – if we apply the analogy to the Church!
Indeed! And all dirty!
The Scottish Government has announced this evening that masks must now be worn in places of worship.
Hopefully there will be some push back against this, but I won’t hold my breath (!).
I fear there will be a real effort to impose these masks permanently. For years already, many people in Asian countries have already worn masks as they go about their business. I always thought they were just weird, but maybe they have been subjected to similar social conditions as we are experiencing now.
Next week: Government to announce that people must hop on one leg and bark like a dog, throughout the service, in places of worship.
it seems that you must now wear a mask anywhere outside your own home.
Cinemas are also included. I was at the cinema with my daughter yesterday*, so we just missed this rule. There were only about 10 people inside anyway, with half being small children.
*We saw “The Fairy Princess and The Unicorn” (I got to pick lol).
So, this was announced this evening, about wearing masks in “places of worship”? I take it, you mean after the daily briefing? In other words, they’re literally sitting around wondering what else to impose on us.
Well, I hope masks are not imposed where I attend Mass or I won’t be attending.
I’m exempt, anyway, – as is anyone who doesn’t have a personal medical condition but who reads the Government list, because included in that list is the exemption, should wearing a mask cause undue anxiety I think most of us would suffer anxiety at the thought of perhaps suffocating to death.
About that cinema though – I think the rule is to wear a mask indoors if there is no chance of keeping the two metre distance, so I would imagine an almost empty cinema would accommodate that nonsense.
*We saw “The Fairy Princess and The Unicorn” (I got to pick lol).
Priceless! Reminds me of my father taking me to see Calamity Jane, which I’d never have picked if he’d said it was a cowboy film. Fathers, what are they like?
Not doubting your word or anything, of course, but I went off to find a report on wee Nicola’s latest decree and sure enough, it’s now allowed to sit (unmasked) in a cafe or restaurant but not in a church
If the [insert adjective of your choice] bishops and priests don’t waken up now, albeit belatedly and put their foot/feet down to say NO WAY, there’s no hope for them, let alone faith and/or charity.
“The Fairy Princess and The Unicorn”? Is that an SNP production by any chance?
I don’t care about their mask rule, I simply will not be wearing one and I won’t stop going to Mass either!
I’ve been thinking that I would need to ask a priest friend of my family to offer TL Masses for us, to avoid the kind of unpleasantness which might arise from insisting on access to Mass if this ridiculous rule is imposed in the church where I usually attend, .
I’m being asked about this by concerned Catholics, both younger and elderly. It’s an horrendous situation to have to advise people about this, when I’m conflicted myself.
The one thing about which I am certain is that I will not be wearing a mask, to church, shops, transport, whatever.
I can foresee a number of people making alternative arrangements for Mass in the event that we should have this evil imposed upon us, but I will not be one of them.
My position is absolutely clear, I will not wear a mask and I will not stop attending Mass at my usual church. Regrettable as any public scene at church would be, I will not flinch from upholding the dignity of Our Lord in His own House, categorically refusing to insult Him in the tabernacle with a manifest object of weak faith strapped across my face.
I honestly cannot see any Traditional Catholic priest or lay person in good health complying with such evil, though there always seems to be one or two superficial types willing to conform through cowardice or wanton ignorance. Not I! My position is to stand firm in determined faith before any complicit priest, lay person or uniformed enforcer of the new Police State.
If the martyrs could embrace the great sufferings and deaths they did for love of God, then I don’t think it is asking too much of any of us to face at worst a fine or a few angry serpent words for refusing to offend Our Lord in the tabernacle in His own House.
I have said time and again that any generally healthy Catholic who enters the House of God wearing a State-mandated fear mask, offends against the Real Presence by want of faith and trust in Him. It’s the masked (healthy) ones who are really worthy of holy indignation, not the unmasked ones.
I’m now destroyed. Publicly humiliated. Exposed as a fraud, albeit a slim, glamorous, witty, highly intelligent fraud. It’s not all bad 😀
Still, this man would rate me among his cowardly friends when he said, after visiting a house reputed to be haunted: “I’ve been to this place for the last 271 years and haven’t seen a single ghost. Absolute cowards.” .
I can’t have you being more brave than me. I just can’t do it. I’d never hear the end of it. They’d be whispering in the pews, can you just hear them?
And to mention the martyrs?”!*** You’ve sunk very low, Athanasius. Very low indeed.
As for these words of yours – OUCH! “I don’t think it is asking too much of any of us to face at worst a fine or a few angry serpent words…”
Listen, there’s not a serpent word in the dictionary that I can’t match with TWO serpent words, but a fine? Have you SEEN my bank balance? My bank manager tells me he can’t sleep at night. Yes, trust me, when I said (bravely, I might add, although I say it myself) that I would not be paying any fine, ever, I wasn’t kidding. Ask Mr Rob Banks (my bank manager)…
Seriously, you are right. I should not be taking the difficult way out by organising a Mass elsewhere for my family 😀 I’m going to take the advice given to a bridegroom by his father just before the happy couple set off on honeymoon: “Remember, son, never go to bed angry. Stay up and fight!”
See you at Mass Un-Masked…
You should have begun that reply with “I have been unmasked”. Otherwise your wit is as sharp as ever, even if it doesn’t “mask” the conspicuous omission of your tax-haven accounts on the Caymen Islands!
I read a joke about a man visiting his accountant and the accountant said “You keep your money in a safe on your boat and you call that an offshore account”? Funny, but not as funny as this one 😀
That’s not cartoon, it’s me!!
I wonder if our paychecks – you know, the ones with all those zeroes – are drawn from Editor’s off-shore accounts?
They have to be, there are so many zeros it has to be a tax avoidance scam. By the way, what is the standard tax rate on more than 6 zeros?
I know your question is addressed to RCA Victor, but I can’t resist putting in my tuppence-worth (so to speak)…
Not sure if you can read it but, take it from moi, it’s funny 😀
It depends. For NWO stooges, the standard rate is zero, plus kickbacks to cover accountant fees. For peons like us, it’s 95% plus 5% penalty for being Catholic.
I had thought the advice from the Bishop’s Conference already had compulsory face coverings (except for children under 5 and those with certain medical conditions) since 14/07/2020, which you can see on their web pages:
(Scroll down the page to Guidance for the Resumption of Mass – JPEG version – or go to https://www.bcos.org.uk/Portals/0/Documents/Guidance-for-the-resumption-of-Mass-Scotland.jpg)
Although I did see this update from the Archdiocese of Glasgow Coronavirus Coordinator, Canon Gargaro, which says that “Face coverings will become mandatory from August 8 in church … We have, of course, already required this in our own Guidance, but from August 8 it will become a criminal offence not to comply (apart from those who are exempt from wearing face coverings – the rules on exemption have not changed). As previously explained in our Guidance, priests … do not need to wear face coverings except for times when they must come within 2m of others”
So I think the Bishop’s Conference was ahead of the Scottish Government in this.
That can only mean one thing – that the bishops are more godless than our Marxist government!
But imagine making the non-wearing of a face mask a criminal offence? I mean, we as a people really need to take that shower in Holyrood, together with the Chief Constable of Police Scotland, and kick them straight out into the streeet. They are using the law against the people who put them where they are to SERVE. They’re the real criminals.
The Archdiocese has a “Coronavirus Coordinator”? That really takes the biscuit. But that’s the wrong title: it should be “Surrender to the Police State Coordinator.”
While the Video above does show Trump’s support of Israel in a negative way and I have no problem with Trump’s support of Israel, it also highlights Trump’s u- turn in advocating Masks and Vaccines administered by the Military, which is a tad troubling.
As regards the “Covid19” as Athanasius pointed out in a previous thread in his letter to the Scottish Police that the Virus have never been isolated using the gold Standard Koch’s Postulates, Video below also confirms this information.
Testing is also a lie, see Video below
Athanasius, did you get any reply from the Police about your letter and also was your open letter published in any Media outlet?
The key to debunking this “Worldwide Covid19 scam” is exposing this lie and would implicate the Government, the Media, Police, doctors and all who have all collaborated in it.
You have a point about Trump and the vaccines from that video, though I would caution that he really is in between a rock and a hard place right now, surrounded by evil liberals, bad advisors and a Marxist media, which is why I cut him a bit of slack.
I also understand, as you do, his favouring of Israel. I am certainly more at ease with the Jews than the Muslims in charge in the Holy Land. We need only look at the wanton destruction ISIS visited upon all those ancient sites it considered insulting to Islam, not to mention Erdogan’s recent outrage in Turkey, turning the Hagia Sofia into a Mosque, to realise that Islamic rule in Israel would be disastrous for Christianity. Besides that, America views Israel as a stabalising force in the Middle East, particularly in respect to Iran.
As regards the identification of Covid-19, I think it fair to state that if the unscientific imposition of national lockdown, face masks, social distancing, etc., tells us anything, it is that science has never been at the forefront of the minds of the evil elite that has organised this global experiment in social engineering.
Concerning my letter to the Chief Constable of Police Scotland, I did receive a response from him. It was a couple of pages of Scottish Government legislation, exactly what I expected from the lead enforcer of the new Police State!
Firstly, I’m looking forward to watching those videos later – they’re my kinda videos… Well, those and Columbo clips 😀
About Trump’s apparent u-turns – my guess is that he’s been advised to play the game, so to speak, until after the election. Think about the way he has been tormented and pursued, even before his inauguration as President. Wasn’t it one of your videos which exposed the fact that 25 assassination attempts had been made on his life before he got anywhere near the White House? Then they pursued him for colluding with the Russians, impeached him for what amounts to jaywalking – goodness, the only thing left is a duel with Nancy Pelosi, High Noon style.
They call life in the USA “the American dream”, too – I’d hate to sit in on one of their nightmares, I kid you not…
Editor and Francescomarta,
Did you come across Trump’s eerie statement during a speech at a factory in Ohio yesterday? He told the workers “You may not see me for awhile,” and then spoke of “very rich people” who were “very unhappy” with him.
I’m not sure what the first cryptic comment means, but please pray for his safety…and I don’t mean observing social distancing and wearing masks…
That’s interesting in a terrifying sort of way. I didn’t see/hear Trump’s speech in Ohio but I saw Jim Jordan interviewed about the visit, when he said the streets from the airport through, were lined with people cheering Trump – Jordan said he would bet his house that Trump will win Ohio in November.
One thing about this whole change of our way of life is that I now know more about American news and politics, the people, politicians and policies, than I ever did before.
These days, there’s very little news in the UK apart from the Coronavirus propaganda and world events that they just can’t ignore, such as the Lebanon explosion. Then they do overkill on those. I could almost find my way around Beirut right now, I’ve seen so many re-runs of the Sky News report.
Seriously, I’m progressing so well, and so fast, in my knowledge of life in America, I’m thinking of applying (to Nancy Pelosi) for illegal alien status… 😀
Your new knowledge of Lebanon leads me to ask: what’s the population of Beirut?
But seriously, if I were to guess at the identities of the “very rich people” Pres. Trump was referring to, I’d start with George Soros and Bill Gates, both of whom have had their evil designs hampered lately by Trump’s moves.
And I wouldn’t put it past either of them to cause Trump harm.
Time to update our readers, since we have a lot of new readers these days – certainly since this vexed “population” question was last aired… (however, note: there are still plenty of vacancies for new bloggers, folks, hint, hint)
When RCA Victor arrived in Glasgow some years ago to speak at one of our Conferences, I was charged with meeting him at the airport. We’d only talked on the phone prior to that, and I’ve yet to find out why he kept hanging up on me. Anyway, here’s the bit.
Driving out of the airport and onto the motorway, he popped the question that I’ve never been allowed to forget. “What” he asked “is the population of Glasgow?”
I was unable to enlighten him. Hadn’t a clue. It could have been in the hundreds, thousands, millions, how would I know? I hardly ever go out. I always think men are following me. It’s called the Wishful Thinking Syndrome. Anyway, our American hero has never allowed me to forget it.
Some months later, when a couple of friends of mine came up from England for a weekend of “girl fun” (retail therapy) I told this story to them and one of them replied immediately that this was the kind of question only a male would ask, that the first question any woman would ask is “where are the shops!” And that, of course, I could answer, in a heartbeat!
Back on topic – yes, I agree. Soros & Gates (sounds like a garden centre) would not think twice of causing The Donald harm in whatever way was open to them. I’ll put it no more strongly than that, in case they sue, at which point I can explain that I meant they could easily just vote for Joe Biden and slash Trump’s chances of winning the election in November.
Worth a try 😀
Yes very cryptic, he also said in his speech “Whenever you see a drug company advertising that Donald Trump is a bad guy, remember: Your drug prices must be coming down very big. Very big.”
Big Pharma is not happy with Trump, he is taking back drug manufacturing from China. I think he could win the election as well. Like JFK, he is upsetting a lot of powerful people and Trumps cryptic remark reminds me of Deuteronomy 34:1–4
Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob … I will let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”
Sadly, I fear you are right with the Deuteronomy quote. Trump is probably setting the stage for a widespread revolt against Communism, but I’m not sure he will live to see the fruits of his bravery.
(According to Yves Dupont’s book Catholic Prophecy, the Communists will not be allowed to consummate their evil plans, and there will indeed be widespread revolts against it. This may be what sparks the war in which Russia invades Europe.)
I’ve now watched the Dr Robert Young video – makes a lot of sense, not least his reminder t that in science/medicine anyone who deviates from the “accepted” position, finds funding removed or refused. It’s a disgrace.
Dr Kaufmann I’ve heard before – these videos are a must-watch for all those who believe the propaganda. I’ve yet to meet any religious person who is as even half as full of conviction and zeal as the Coronavirus Cult – that is, the majority of the populations of the world where this scam is being promoted. Incredible.
I must say that life has been, and stiil, normal for me. I don’t wear a mask anywhere, including church, and I don’t observe “social distancing” as it’s just plain silly. I walk, run dance drive where I want and have always done so. All my family do likewise. The only differences I’ve seen is the sheer terror in person’s faces as I approch them unmasked and and the desperation for people to get out of each other’s way. However, I concede that it is spooky to see all these masked aliens!
I know what you mean about masked aliens. It seems as though I woke up one morning and found myself on another planet, not having gotten the memo that earth had relocated to an unknown location in the solar system. Or, earth’s inhabitants had been switched out with the inhabitants of…Neptune?
It’s even worse than the “invasion of the body snatchers.” This is the invasion of the freedom-snatchers, the invasion of the soul-snatchers, and the invasion of the faith-snatchers.
you are very blessed. You must have a faithful priest and faithful parishioners. I may be being unfair but in my parish, they seem to have accepted all the government’s propaganda and are wearing masks and being “welcomed” at the door by the “welcome ministers” – so I would not get passed the “security” – nor do I want to be part of a confrontation which appears useless as the nonsense pill has been swallowed and you are then accused of not caring for the dying and other such emotionalist tripe. I just need to find a Catholic priest to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass soon.
If you give me permission to email you, I may be able to help a little.
Thank you, yes please email me.
Have people have seen any increase in the number of masses offered at their parishes? Given that masses are limited to 50 people, more masses would allow more people to attend. My parish has not added any more masses, and I was wondering if this was the general case or not.
Are you kidding? They been trying to diminsh the number of Masses since Vatican II, all they’re doing now is diminishing the numbers attending the few they have left. Remember, the bishops are no longer holy.
James, in our parish, the priest now offers an 11 am Saturday morning ( you read that right!) Mass (and states that it covers Sunday obligation) as the only additional Mass. In our wee church, we are only allowed to have 16 people assist at Holy Mass ( with of course a ticket, mask, gloves, be told where to kneel, receive our Lord in our hands, etc.) I do not see how parishes will survive with these restrictions being accepted, they can not survive on the donations of ( in our case 4 collections from 16 = 64 people).
I can not go to Mass with all that diabolic nonsense being insisted on. I have not assisted at Holy Mass now since March 22nd (nor had access to Confession) and I am growing angrier by the day. Our priest is one of those being moved in the Archdiocese of St Andrew and Edinburgh moves and our parishioners are being asked to donate money for the priests farewell. I am really not in a good place, we have had no Mass for months and now he is moving in September I have to give money, I am still not decided on this.
I wish I knew of a place where Mass was offered for faithful behind these weak bishops backs.
James, in our parish we have moved from 3×16 = 48 “seats” to 4 x16 = 64 “seats”.
We had a very powerful sermon this morning on “demoralization,” using St. James the Greater’s frustrations regarding his difficulties converting parts of Spain. As a result of his prayers, Our Lady of the Pillar appeared to him (and she was still living in Jerusalem at the time) and conferred her powerful assistance and encouragement.
Here is a video tour of Our Lady of the Pillar’s Cathedral-Basilica:
(Caveat: annoying music starts about 2:30)
Father went on to address the first goal in the Communist destruction of a free nation – demoralization – and reviewed how that goal is being achieved in the United States. Oddly enough, I’m not sure mask-wearing, social distancing and quarantines should be included in “demoralization,” since the vast majority apparently view these measures as absolute necessity for safety! I don’t think the sheep are feeling demoralized, I think they are happily submitting to these scam-demic measures. They are too brainwashed to be demoralized.
However, it certainly can be demoralizing for those, such as the bloggers here, who see through the systematic lies.
Our Lady of the Pillar, pray for us!
I’m interested in the fact that your priest is actually preaching about this interference of State in Church affairs – we’ve not heard a mention of it. Incredible. Apart from the Notices, hand sanitizer and the obedient wearing of face masks, nobody would guess that we are living in dangerous times.
I’ll check out your video later – a very interesting story.
The SSPX priests in England and Edinburgh (Livestream Masses) have mentioned the closure of churches due to the pandemic but always just to blame the bishops – which is incongruous. I also don’t remember any connection being made with Fatima, which just amazes me.
I thought now that people are going back to Masses in churches, that there would be strong preaching about this coming from governments over-reaching their authority. Are you saying that’s not the case? It’s not the case anywhere else, where everybody is just taking it for granted that we’re in physical danger but I’d have thought the SSPX chapels would be different. Please don’t tell me I’m wrong.
You misunderstand. I’ve heard those remarks blaming the bishops. I didn’t mean that.
A few people have expressed surprise that there has been no mention of the goings-on in the country these days in sermons, given that we’re living through huge social change at the moment; still we can never get too much teaching about humility. That’s a given 😀
Here’s an Archbishop/Retired Nuncio who thinks that a return to normal should include tearing up the Novus Ordo!
(Not sure, but I suspect that the phrase “a full project of being the Church” might be a bad translation.)
One lives in hope!
I’m adding that video to the several others I am keen to watch asap.
In the meantime, I have a private detective looking into the matter of where to buy a few extra hours in the day 😀
