Scots Priest Challenges Bishops’ Response To Lockdown & Covid-19 Restrictions

Scots Priest Challenges Bishops’ Response To Lockdown & Covid-19 Restrictions

On this, the Feast of St Michael, The Archangel, Defender of the Church & The Faithful, a priest of the Archdiocese of Glasgow – Father Stephen Dunn – speaks out against the closure of churches during lockdown, and the ongoing government restrictions being enforced in Catholic churches…
                        St Michael, Archangel,                           defend us in the day of battle…

An Open Letter…

Dear Members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church in Scotland,

“Then he said, Son of man, remember everything I say to you, listen closely, and go to your  exiled country men and talk to them.  Tell them, ‘The Lord says this whether they listen or not.’”   – Eziekiel, 2, 10-11. (Office of Readings, Monday, week 24)

“This is My Son the Beloved with whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him!’ – Mathew, Mark & Luke’s gospel.

This morning I was deeply saddened and angered when I saw people having to be denied entry to one of our Catholic churches in our Archdiocese of Glasgow because there were 50 people already in, and in obedience to Archbishop Philip Tartaglia, and the guidelines issued by the Archdiocese and the Bishops Conference of Scotland, this procedure had to be carried out.  I was subsequently told that a man, his wife and his child, having travelled 15 miles were turned away a couple of weeks ago, again because 50 were already in.

ENOUGH  of  this  suppression, intimidation!  

This is disgraceful, shocking.  “Could you not spend one hour with me?”  No you can’t,  because Philip Tartaglia and the Scottish Bishops conference says no – only 50 are allowed in;  we are going to be obedient to government guidelines and not allow any more than 50 people in.

Obedient to a Government which advocates  Adultery, Abortion, Sodomy, and Transgenderism?  Please tell me one of those that is pleasing to God? 

Why are the Bishops of Scotland being obedient to such law makers? Being obedient to laws/directives made by a fascist, Communist government which drove fear into people and makes them act in fear, a government which you are obeying!  Our Lady warned at Fatima, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church.  I am aware that is not unique to Scotland, but as a priest ordained 26 years ago for Glasgow in Scotland I am going to focus my criticism/argument  there.

One of these persecutions of the Church is happening now.   The government, in its freedom removal and fear laws, said churches were to be shut, God’s people were not to gather at His house and celebrate/receive  the Sacraments, the primary means of the Salvation of their souls.  Bishop,  are you of God or of the world?

This  intimidation is happening before your very eyes and you happily go along with it.  Is this good shepherding?

Never  in the history of  Mother Church, has she been subject to the laws of the State.   The Church is not and never has been subject to the State; this is clear in all Encyclicals regarding the relationship between Church and State issued by the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. It is frightening that Bishops have compromised this clear teaching by their obedience to the State,  to the point where Sacraments, the primary means of  salvation, are being denied even to the dying. Shocking.

And  do not dare tell me that this is because of Covid 19, a disease which has a recovery rate of 99.79%! Yes a fatality rate of 1 in 500.  A disease, which 42 studies showed  by 39 – 3, that if treated promptly  and with the correct and proper dosage,  of  hydroxychloroquine, full  recovery increases by 33 – 50% ! 

See the facts  for yourselves! – this is not a study but a review of 42 studies!

For the purpose of the points/criticisms I make, I shall quote Truth given by Our Lord in the 4 gospels, showing how these present actions are against His will, contradict His will. I will also refer to other Scripture quotes and the lives of the saints.

From the start our Bishops closed our churches, the dwelling place of Jesus Christ in the most Blessed Sacrament.

Holy Water was removed from our fonts with which we bless ourselves on entering Jesus’ house, reminding ourselves of the covenant God made with us at Baptism – “Unless you are born of water and the Holy Spirit you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven” – John 3. 

Is God going to use Holy Water to pass disease to faithful followers of His son who remind themselves of His covenant?

The weekend before we entered national lockdown on Monday 23rd March the Bishops closed our churches, denying access. “Come to me all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me,  for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls!”-  Matt 11.

When the sheep were frightened and scared of the Covid wolf, you shepherds denied them entry to be with their Master, He through whom they were created, their Saviour, in His Real Presence, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Sorry to say it, but I say directly, this is Shocking, Disgraceful.

Consider the prayer taught by the Angel to the little children at Fatima –

My God I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not Adore, do not hope and do not love you. Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore you profoundly and I offer you the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, truly present in all the Tabernacles of the World in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He Himself is offended. And through His Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners. Amen

You, Bishops of Scotland, you denied adoration, you are the ones who presently cause the outrages, sacrileges and indifference with which He Himself is offended, by denying the sheep time in the Real Presence of Jesus.  And at a time when they need it most.

You may reply:  But they might have had Covid,  brought it  and passed it resulting in an outbreak which would have resulted  through their coming to Church!

Is the Father going to allow His Son’s house to be the centre of disease and the passing of disease when the sheep come to His Son to find peace for their souls!  No. 

 When the Son of Man comes will He find any faith on earth?”  – Luke 18.  With such chief shepherds as we have, sorry Lord Jesus, it looks very unlikely.

What guidance and example do the saints give us, actions  that  will please the Father?

 St Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of our Holy Catholic Church,  says regarding shepherds i.e., Bishops and we priests who have advocated and followed the above practices; said on Monday, week 24, Office of Readings:

“So let us see how the Word of God, that flatters no one, addresses the shepherds who are feeding themselves not the sheep. ‘You take the milk, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fatlings; but you do not feed my sheep. The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the crippled you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought; any strong one you have killed; and my sheep are scattered because there is no shepherd.” 

Not only did you close churches and stop people from spending time in the Real Presence, you stopped funerals denying the grieving time at the Lord’s  altar,  to pray for their loved ones:  “All I ask of you is that you remember me at the Altar of God” – St Monica.

In hospitals where people were dying,  they were denied access to priests, and so to the Sacraments, the primary means of the salvation of their souls,  the Forgiveness of Sin, Absolution for their Souls, which would have placed their souls in a state of Grace,  so helping them to remove the fear of death, helping them to find peace in Jesus’ mercy… 

As the Compendium Catechism of the Catholic Church, written by Pope Benedict XVI,  says:

How are sins remitted? (#200)

The first and chief sacrament for the forgiveness of sins is Baptism.  For those sins committed after Baptism, Christ instituted the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Penance through which a baptised person is reconciled with God and with the Church.

Why does the Church have the power to forgive sins? (#201)

The Church has the mission and the power to forgive sins because Christ Himself has conferred it upon her: “Receive the Holy Ghost, if you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained” – John 20

This mission of yours, this duty as shepherds, you neglected, by not making sure a priest was available to the dying in a time of great fear.

“But he could have caught Covid and might have died!”  I hear you reply.

Will the Father  allow disease to pass to a Priest/s, with whom Jesus has shared His priesthood, as he tries to worthily celebrate the Sacraments, the primary  means of Salvation, to sick and dying souls?   Have you any faith, trust in Jesus who has shared His priesthood with you? He whom St Paul tells us in his letter to the Philippians: “If our life in Christ means anything to you” (it should be the centre of our priesthood) “if love can persuade you at all, or the Holy Spirit that we have in common, or any tenderness and sympathy, then be united in your convictions and united in your love, with a common purpose and mind.” 

That common purpose and mind must be to follow the actions and teaching of Christ – was He scared to touch the lepers?  In the Gospel Jesus tells us of the son who said “yes”, he would go to his father’s vineyard and work but never went. On being installed Bishops, you promised to go and look after the Lord’s flock, but you have gone to the world instead, listened to its instructions and imposed them on the people, failing to implement Jesus’ teaching and ways.

Lives/example of the saints –

St Robert Bellarmine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, feast 17th Sept,- During the time of great disease, at the time of the Reformation, the plague which ravaged Europe, he went about cleansing  and dressing the wounds of those infected by the plague;  what hand sanitizer was he using? Please tell me if you know – I better get some!

St Mother Teresa served the poor looking after them, dressing their wounds, helping them in their illness. What age did she live to?  87!  How many followed her, joined her order, she who trusted herself completely to the service of God and her neighbour. “By its fruits shall you know the tree.”  

If we are truly trying to be shepherds through the priesthood Christ has shared with us, these are the examples we should look to, copy and so trust in the power of Christ, as we try to do the will of the Father through the prompting of the Holy Ghost,  and without fear.

And finally to the Mass and how it has been changed by you Bishops.

Mass, the celebration of Christ’s offering on the Cross for the forgiveness of our sins, the institution of the Most Holy Eucharist, where we hear the Word of God to help us guide our actions to show our belief in Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

You shut our churches, denying people the Mass, the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ: “I tell you most solemnly, if  you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood you will not have life within you.” – John 6:53.

You stopped the sheep from receiving the Lord in Holy Communion at the time when they needed Him most.  Instead of doing what Christ instructed you did what the Government instructed: 

Do not get close to each other. Priests, keep people apart, distancing them from each other, no singing, the liturgy must be celebrated in a very basic way. You must make the faithful wear masks,  despite the  fact that the WHO admitted to the BBC that its June 2020 mask policy update was due not to new evidence, but “political lobbying”. – D Cohen, BBC Medical Correspondent     Yet, the people are  hindered in their ability to speak, to enter God’s Presence, showing their facial individuality, how God created them.  Disgraceful.

On 3rd September, in the Tridentine calendar, we celebrated the feast of St Pius X, great pastor of the flock, who realised the full value of the liturgy as the prayer of the Church that is pleasing to the Father.  You hinder such celebration in your clear obedience to the world.  Why?

One cannot help but think that if the Lord Jesus came into such churches, He would tear down your tape, cast aside your sanitizer bottles and masks and say My Father’s house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have turned it into a worldly den  which follows practices of the world and the flesh! Be gone!  – Matt,  21.

Priests have to sanitize hands before giving out communion – as Philip Tartaglia said to me in a letter instructing me to follow guidelines, or else!  People should leave the church after receiving Holy Communion; they should not remain/return to benches. People are to be denied time in the Real Presence of their  Saviour, He who sacrificed Himself for the forgiveness of their sins, their Lord and Master.  This directly contravenes the example of the saints of the Church who in their lives show the importance of spending time in the presence of Jesus, having  just received Him.

“The Bishops of Scotland have agreed to suspend the choice of distributing and receiving Holy Communion on the tongue during the current pandemic for reasons of infection control. This is not an attempt to change liturgical laws. It is a reasonable temporary measure to adopt in this pandemic.” – letter  sent by email to me from Philip Tartaglia, 20th August 2020.

You Bishops have no right, no such power  to remove people’s choice to receive Holy Communion on the tongue!

It is for people to choose, not you to dictate things contrary to the teaching and rules of Mother Church.

Is Jesus, who is using the priest, with whom He has shared His priesthood, going to pass disease through their giving of Holy Communion? Again I quote, When the Son of Man comes will He find any faith on earth?” 

According to Scripture in the Office of Readings of the last few weeks, the Lord asks of His shepherds, on numerous occasions, through the Prophets, and very precisely here: “When the upright man renounces his integrity to do evil and I set a trap for him, he too shall die for his sin and the integrity he practised will no longer be remembered; but I will hold you responsible for his death.” –  Ezekiel  2:20

By publishing this letter, as a priest who is struggling in the present situation, I truly believe I am acting in obedience to God’s will, pleasing the Father and following the prompting of the Holy Ghost by giving clarity through Christ’s words, not mine. I believe that by my quotes from the Gospels, I have declared myself for Jesus in the presence of men as Jesus commands and, I believe, a true shepherd should.  (Matt, 10:32)

To you, the people of the Body of Christ in Scotland, the One Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church I ask your prayers, especially before the altar of God. I am a sinner with faults and failings, some say many faults and failings.  Many will assure you “that you definitely won’t see a halo over  Dunn’s head!”  However, even with such weakness and faults,  I believe that I have a duty  to make this letter available to you, in obedience to God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, to address grave failings and incorrect directives from our Scottish Bishops.

To those whom I accuse, I say reflect, realise what Christ wishes of we Shepherds, and like the Prodigal Son, come back to the Father – remembering that Christ tells us, ”There will be more rejoicing in heaven over one repentant sinner than ninety-nine good men who are in no need of repentance.” – Luke, 15.

And as individuals,  let  none of us forget:  “Remember dear Christian:   You have but one soul to save, One God to love and to serve, one Eternity to expect, Death will come soon, Judgement will follow, And then, Heaven or Hell for all Eternity!”  (St Teresa of Avila).

Yes, we priests have many souls to save, and because more has been entrusted to us in priesthood, the greater our Judgement!

God Bless you all, and may we all be united in Christ Jesus to carry out His will.

Christ’s brother in priesthood,

Fr Stephen Dunn
Priest of 26 years of the Archdiocese of Glasgow.

Comment:

Father Stephen Dunn has honoured Catholic Truth by permitting us to publish the above letter.  We thank him for this, and I have already assured him that our readers and bloggers will be praying for him.  It takes courage for any priest to speak out in this way. 

Father Dunn regularly offers the Traditional Latin Mass.  He learned the Mass on publication of Summorum Pontificum, and at that time his main reason for wanting to learn the old Mass was because his father, Dr John Dunn RIP, a supporter of Catholic Truth from the beginning of our publication, had stipulated that his funeral Mass must be offered in the Traditional rite.  Father has come to fully appreciate the old rite, especially in its reverence, and he now offers it as often as possible.

Please express your support for Father in the comments below, and remember to pray for him because, as we know, while dissenting priests are protected and promoted in the Church at this time of apostasy, loyal priests who preach and defend the Faith are, sadly, more often than not punished at some level – we have all been following such cases, most notably, recently, the case of the American priest, Father James Altman.

    This last weekend held the postponed Peter’s Pence collection. What a cheek! Do people really NOT KNOW where that money goes? In recent times it has been used to fund/invest in Elton John’s film, Rocketman, which included gay sex! Also, several million was used by ex Cardinal Becciu to buy a luxury block of flats in Chelsea, London and to line the pockets of his brothers. The same cardinal also transferred a huge sum into the coffers of the Victoria police after the imprisonment of Cardinal Pell. Corruption pure and simple. Faithful Catholics should NOT support this “charity”.

    I received an email from a reader this afternoon, in which she gave the following information:

    Some very disturbing news from St Andrew’s Cathedral. No public rosary allowed for First Saturday Devotions. Silent rosary only. Also announced by Fr Sharkey on First Saturday that the clergy there will no longer say “Body of Christ” when distributing Holy Communion to the people who have to remain in their seats and not process to the Altar to receive Holy Communion. The people are not to say “Amen” either as they used to do pre-lockdown. Ends.

    I emailed Father Sharkey at the cathedral and, courteously, he replied very promptly as follows – but note, the person, Marie, to whom he refers, is not the person who emailed me…

    Many thanks for your e-mail. I am happy to clarify the situation for you and perhaps you would be good enough to pass it on to Marie, whom I believe posted this information on Facebook.

    Since public Masses have resumed, priests are required to wear masks while distributing Holy Communion and are to say a short prayer before distributing Holy Communion in place of the ‘Body of Christ’. This is in the official guidelines. I have absolutely no objection to people responding Amen as I give them the Sacred Host and have never given any instruction or announcement about this.
    From re-opening, I felt that people remaining in their places (where, indeed, they can choose to kneel to receive Communion) was more dignified than having them receive the Lord and be directed to leave the church immediately, as has happened in other parishes.

    Regarding the Rosary: Since the Cathedral only opened at 12.30 (after a short period of Exposition for those unable to be present in church) and Mass was to begin at 1pm, I felt that public Rosary, while helpers were taking people’s names and contact details and then guiding them safely to their seats (again in accordance with the current guidelines), would be difficult to do in a reverent way. On a practical level, it would also have been difficult to ensure that Clare, who leads the prayers, would have been kept safe since she would not have been 2m distant from others and would have been without a mask at the time. However, I asked Clare to lead the Fatima prayers from the ambo (more than three metres from the congregation) at 12.50, prior to Mass, to conclude the time of prayer and ensure that we had done as much as possible for the devotions, while still following the guidelines and keeping people as safe as possible.

    I appreciate that this situation is very far from ideal but so much of our lives are at the moment. Should you wish me to explain anything else, or clarify further, then please do not hesitate to get back in touch.

    With sincere good wishes,
    Fr. Sharkey

    I replied to Father Sharkey as follows…

    Thank you Father, for your prompt response. I will be reporting the original message and will, of course, publish your clarification. I don’t know “Marie” (at least not sure if this is any Marie known to me, because I’m not on Facebook – I received this message from someone else).

    It is, however, heart-breaking to read your uncritical acceptance of the need for all the “safety” advice, let alone the Government’s right to impose rules on the Church. To see such massive changes implemented in our parishes on the ridiculous pretext of keeping us safe from a virus from which almost 100% recover (including the healthy elderly) just leaves me speechless. And that ain’t easy to achieve.

    I take it that you will have read Father Dunn’s Open Letter on our blog – it is just beyond belief that all the rest of the priests and bishops in Scotland are obeying the State in these matters. Just beyond belief. I’m hoping and praying that more and more priests will put their “careers” on hold in the name of doing the right thing and refusing to obey our disgraceful bishops in this subservience to the State. With respect, may I remind you that Judgement, Father, may come to any one of us at any moment.

    God bless you (Signed)

    Pray for priests, folks. They are really and truly living in the role of the blind being led by the blind. Blind Bishops – all eight of them in Scotland. God help us all.

    The Bishops are now crowing that public worship and parish life can continue, even despite the Govt claiming COVID is on the rise again. This is due to the “meticulous” safety measures in place, apparently.

    However what is currently being offered only caters to a tiny minority of people and so is hardly worth shouting about – as Fr Dunn pointed out so well, recently.

    https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/18771363.scotlands-catholic-bishops-say-public-worship-can-carry-despite-heightened-covid-19-fears/

    I would be very interested to be a fly on the wall in other places of worship – for example, Glasgow Central Mosque (a very large building) – to see how they are fairing with imposed limits on attendance etc.

      Gabriel Syme,

      I believe this is the latest attempt to “answer” Father Dunn – I’m hearing about parish newsletters emphasising the importance of the restrictions…

      just posted a new thread on the subject of non-compliance – we have another rebel in our midst 😀

    God bless this wonderful priest! It is horrible to see these Cardinals and Bishops literally LOCKING THE FAITHFUL OUT OF CHURCH AND DENYING THE SACRAMENTS. ALL OVER THE WORLD!! Have these people no fear for their immortal souls?? The Cardinals and Bishops should fall to their knees and beg God’s forgiveness. What a scandal. I am from Wisconsin U.S.

      Tara,

      Thank you – Father is delighted with all the people who have supported him here. You are right to call him “this wonderful priest”.

      But have you read about the less than wonderful priest who tried to bully one of our bloggers into conforming to Government rules?

    I certainly will keep Fr. Dunn in my prayers. Fr, you are saying exactly what we faithful Catholic are feeling. We too are upset about all what’s happening in our churches . If Jesus came he would tear down those awful signs and demand the Holy font to be filled. God Bless you Fr. May the Lord protect you. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Here’s a good article about the pseudo-religion the author calls “covidism,” and the reason she thinks the Church (I think she means Christians generally, but it’s hard to tell) has succumbed so easily:

    RCAVictor

    I think the author of that article is coming at it from the ecumenical “faith traditions” point of view, nevertheless the general thrust is spot on. Covidism is a new religion of science, science fiction actually, that has taken the place of God in our churches and in society as the new deity to be worshipped. Fr. Keevins is just one example of many priests (and prelates) who have abandoned Our Lord Jesus Christ to serve this idol. It’s what happens when supernatural faith is slowly replaced over many years with naturalism so that the health of the bod becomes more important than the health of the soul. And we know who the architects of naturalism are – they are Communists and Freemasons!

    Thank you Fr Stephen Dunn for speaking and upholding the Truth of Our treasured Catholic Faith . We in our praying community closely supported by the Franscians of the Immaculata from near St Mary’s, Gosport and St Joseph’s , Portsmouth pray for your protection by all of the angels and saints in heaven, and especially Our Blessed Mother on the feast of the Most Holy Rosary . We pray many more priests and bishops with stand up for God’s Truth in these dark times facing our churches.

    May God bless you under the protection of Our Lady’s Mantle.

    Editor: thank you very much for your lovely comment and promise of prayers for Father Dunn. I hope you will also remember to pray for the layman who has been threatened with refusal of the Sacraments (including Confession – reflect on the significance of that) if he continues to refuse to wear a mask and register his details on arrival.

      Unfortunately in this diocese too, the church has become a series of what appear to be wartime warehouses, where the ‘gestapo’ at the door are so busy with their clipboards accosting people noisily, while inside the beleagured monstrance encasing the Holy Eucharist is virtually abandoned.

      I haven’t been to this particular church, but it’s home page is typical of churches in the Portsmouth diocese and shows a chart of exactly what our bishop wants for his churches:

      http://hartleywintney-catholics.org.uk

      Meanwhile from Portsmouth Cathedral 4/10/20
      “Government regulations require members of the congregation to wear masks which cover the nose and mouth throughout the time we are in church”

      https://www.portsmouthcatholiccathedral.org.uk/uploads/newsletter.pdf

      The ‘gestapo’ even at the churches where the friars minister to us so faithfully enforce these draconian / demonic rules and seem to carry them out with such gusto you’d think the state must be rewarding them handsomly. But evidently no, they are willing agents of the state, to the detriment of people’s souls – scaring some away for fear of catching the ‘deadly’ virus, telling those of us who can’t wear masks for health reasons we might cause the church to be fined 10s of thousands of pounds, but more often making others, especially young people strugging with the Faith, stay away permanently because of the weakness they encounter in the Church.

      These voluntary government agents, aka church stewards, are so busy with policing souls, they have no time to join our prolife vigils in the open air. Instead they warn people off with scaremongering stories about police and army personnel set to arrest us. The reality being local police are very supportive of our right to peacefully draw attention to what goes on in abortuaries. It goes without saying no army is about to arrest us… yet!

      On 19 August a few of us wrote to the bishops of England and Wales following their notorious declaration that it was our “duty as Catholics” to take whatever vaccine the government wanted to force on us:

      https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gvmaQBD8kCrh8rlRShEv8GBW72u_m8dQcVOdMYGftw0/edit?usp=sharing

      Last week emblazoned on “Catholic” newsmedia were the headlines Bishops do a “U-turn” and all the gullible Catholics praised the bishops – for what? Telling us it’s now up to our own consciences whether we take a vaccine or not, despite the fact the vaccine has traces of an aborted foetus in its makeup. Pontius Pilate comes to mind…

      Here’s news for you bishops: I for one will never wear a mask in a church, not even if it was to save me from imminent death! It’s time we took back our Church from these charletans!

      Editor: Liz, thank you for your excellent comment. To find out precisely why this virus is anything but deadly, I urge you to watch this 40 minutes video (posted on another thread by another blogger, but which you might miss) – a must-watch, because it covers all of the key issues and gives us hope that perhaps those apostate bishops – like our disgraceful politicians – will, in fact, end up in prison for their crimes against humanity.

    I must add, our primary reason to pray outside abortuaries is to be a sign to anyone in difficulty who has nowhere else to turn to in a crisis pregnancy, to let them know in fact whatever help they need is available if they wish to avail of it. We are also there as a reminder that our society turns a blind eye to what actually happens in these places. We are all collectively responsible for the fact that we live in a society where human life is trashed if it’s not convenient, despite all the pretence that ‘grannies matter’

    Fr Dunn,
    Thanks for fighting for truth. It is a sad fact that the takeover of the Catholic Church is the biggest reason for the current state of affairs in the world. The modernist invasion attempted to water down Jesus and turn him into a liberal who stood for nothing. The changing of the liturgy was the greatest attack as Catholics did not fight for the only legal liturgy: the Saint Pope Pius the fifth 1570 liturgy. This (Novus Ordo) weakened the power of the sacrament, weakened the spirituality of the laity and is the reason we have such weak men in the church hierarchy and priesthood. Obviously putting perverts in the hierarchy and priesthood and infesting all seminaries was and is a big problem as well.

    But the fact is that the satanic earthly powers have already lost the war; and this is why they act so desperately now. They have done everything possible to destroy the church and it has all failed miserably. Tradition is alive among the young people and truth has won out. We don’t blame the church for imposters and perverts. We don’t surrender our church to the modernists. It is our church and always will be; it was never a “false church” as to call it such is to ignore the Holy Ghost.

    In my local church, we were enjoying such great power and unity; and many churches were packed right as the fake virus came on the scene to interrupt this excitement. This is an act of desperation and should not dissuade is from celebrating our faith and living a life of joy.

    Interesting to note as well how many priests and bishops and the [Editor: I deleted an adjective which, like the word you put in inverted commas above to describe the Church, ignores the the Holy Ghost!] pope worked hand in hand with this earthly force to slow the church down. A couple months before the so called virus, we lost a priest to something he apparently did with an underage boy. They never told us what he did; just removed him suddenly. This was a blow to the parish. So we overcame that within weeks and had a better vibe than ever before. Then the covid comes. What a coincidence!

    When church leaders assert their rights; this fake pandemic will end instantly. Since our leaders are so spineless, it may take action from the laity. I keep living a normal life just like I did during the Easter shut down. I went to church every day instead of partaking in the so called parking lot masses. I have not worn a mask one time in church or the grocery store. Anybody who wears the mask is putting the mark of the beast on; and making themselves complicit in this evil plot. As a member of the Body of Christ you are supposed to fight for truth; not promote lies.

    I think this covid voyage has really separated the sheep from the goats. It was necessary; and has sped up the inevitable end of all the nonsense. They have lost the war; and do not have the momentum to go any further. Over half of the country wants no part of vaccines. We want to worship God with the real liturgy. And we will get this when we take off the masks, ignore all these ridiculous protocols, and act like The Victors we are (instead of moping around with face diapers on). Wake up people!

      Henry,

      You are absolutely right. We stand up and fight.
      Incorrect information, deceit, suppression 7 lies are continously being given by our Government, both Scottish and UK. I believe the only way they will altar course is if fear for their money and reputation is proclaimed before the country. This must start from a few and grow.

      So I say to you:

      https://gloria.tv/post/NQUURyZggbqR2mPDNLqSxKHAc

      Please watch this video. It is 50 minutes long and you will need to will need to give it your FULL attention to appreciate the legal information and content it contains. I say, ideally connect your laptop to a TV screen and watch it that way. The man at the centre of the video is a German Lawyer and 4 others, who have been gathering factual evidence and evidence of peoples actions (Gov advisors) that cannot be denied about Covid and the lies/deceit around it. The Lawyer led the case of the claim against Deutsche Bank and Volkswagen, both for Billions of dollars, because of false information given. We are being given gravely inaccurate information about Covid – this is explained very clearly in video.

      Please copy this link, the above paragraph and this:

      Dear Sir/Madame, Covid – Incorrect info, deceit, suppression & lies!

      Then:

      Put it together, print off copies and give it to anyone, but ESPECIALLY anyone you know who has a business – eg pubs, restaurants etc that has had to close. (such people are loosing business, money and probably laying people off, making them redundant). Encourage them to watch the video so that the hopefully can see that a legal damages case, a Group Litigation Order, for their losses could be started against Boris, Nicola, Matt Handcock, . . .. etc, for the losses suffered through the actions of Boris, Nicola, Matt, etc in impossing lock down based of false facts propogated by their advisors. This Group would be Country wide group and proceed as such to Court, so little individual cost, if any, to such individuals/businesses.

      I have addressed this to you Henry, but I encourage all who read, to do like wise.
      We need to gather a wee snowball at the top of the hill and start it rolling down the hill, but we all must get some snow for the wee ball at the top. If manage it, and with the grace of God, hopefully we can scare/frighten them into stopping the gravely incorrect actions, if they beome aware a Court litigation has been started against them for damages.

      All is explained in the above video link, 50 mins, but worth every second for the armour it is offering us. It is up to us to take it up and start fighting!

    What joy it is to hear a Catholic priest speak out against the restrictions forced upon us Catholics by the secular state and unfortunately supported by our Bishops here in Ireland and Scotland. At least some of our Churches are open and we can pray before the Tabernacles. For me personally, I love entering the Church on my own as very often sad to say, i am the only person in it. However i can sing out loud Praising God, doing the Stations of the Cross and able to focus on my lord and savior Jesus Christ.What joy I have to experience Gods love, Presence in the Tabernacle and to be aware that the Saints in Heaven are praising God with me. I can even read the Bible out loud and allow God speak to my heart through the Holy Spirit. Psalm 119 V 105 Your Word is a lamp to my Path and light to my feet. Psalm 91 for protection of out family and friends and all who visit the Empty Churches . What joy. Try it yourself. God will speak to you through his Word and you will be Blessed.
