Glasgow Priest-Policeman To Un-Masked Layman: Obey Or Forfeit Sacraments…

Glasgow Priest-Policeman To Un-Masked Layman: Obey Or Forfeit Sacraments…

St Mungo’s, Townhead, Glasgow

Catholic Truth blogger Athanasius, aka Martin Blackshaw, writes…

In what can only be described as providential timing, I encountered first-hand on Saturday the evil that Fr. Dunn warned of in his letter challenging the bishops of Scotland on their Covid-19 response measures.

The venue of my bitter experience was St. Mungo’s church in Glasgow’s Townhead, the source of the evil was the superior of the Passionists there, Fr. Frank Keevins.

Having clearly been tipped off that I had entered the church for Confession, dismissing, as is my Catholic duty, the faithless and dehumanising house rules for entry imposed by Scotland’s wayward hierarchy, Fr. Keevins skulked around outside awaiting my departure in order to “have a word”

The word mumbled from behind his pitiful little face covering was that unless I conform to the Covid-19 tyranny of the State, as per the capitulation of the bishops and their clerical enforcers, I will not be allowed to enter that particular House of God again. In fine – no mask, no Sacraments.

Two Gospel texts came to my mind as he spoke; one being Our Lord’s condemnation of the Pharisees who close the kingdom of heaven to souls, neither entering themselves, the other His just wrath visited upon the worldly Temple moneychangers.

Imagine Our Saviour turning up in the flesh at St. Mungo’s today only to be greeted by a masked usher asking for His contact details, squirting him

with sanitiser, handing him a State muzzle and offering to guide Him to one of the few pews not taped off. I think it fair to conclude that having turned away from that worldly place, emptied of God, there would not be left a stone upon a stone.

No matter how hard I tried to explain this reality to Fr. Keevins, reminding him of the very grave evil he was perpetrating, evil that could well result in the loss of his own immortal soul, he remained unmoved and resolute. His response was a flippant “I will take that risk” as he sought refuge in “blind obedience” to the bishops – that monumental error of our time that robs the free children of God of their liberty on the whim of abusive ecclesiastical authority.

This recourse of Fr. Keevins to blind obedience rather reminded me of the pathetic defence of the Nazis at Nuremberg who sought to justify their wickedness with the line “I was only obeying orders”.

To be absolutely clear on this point, it is the teaching of the Church that subordinates must obey the legitimate ecclesiastical authority in all that is consistent with the faith handed down. However, it is equally incumbent upon them to refuse obedience when the ecclesiastical authority issues commands that are detrimental to the faith and harmful to souls.

There is no question that by their treacherous compliance with unjust secular laws relating to Covid-19, laws that subordinate the superior supernatural authority of the Church to the inferior State, trampling the freedom and dignity of Christ’s flock along the way, these worldly bishops and priests must be resisted by all Catholics who retain a true sense of the faith and zeal for the honour of God.

It has been patently obvious for several months now that Covid-19 represents no threat to health for 99.7% of the global population; this is verified both by official statistics and the declarations of the world’s leading scientists.

Hence this unholy behaviour of our clerical superiors, unprecedented in ecclesiastical history even during times of real plague, is proof positive that the Church is presently undergoing a great crisis of faith in her clergy, a crisis that demands of the faithful serious discernment in the grave matter of which priests they entrust their salvation to.

The Redemptorist missionary admonition of tradition reads “You have one life to live and one soul to save; death will come soon, then heaven or hell for all eternity”. With these words of true wisdom ever present in our minds let us all resolve to reject the spirit of “the Prince of this world” that so many bishops and priests have succumbed to – and are trying to subject us to.

Our clear duty is to seek out faithful clergy, supernatural men of God noted for their love of God and their spiritual zeal for souls. These, in my experience, are generally priests who celebrate the ancient Latin Mass of the saints and martyrs and are conspicuous for their Eucharistic devotion, rejecting the much-abused, irreverence-inducing indult of Communion in the hand to standing communicants.

While they are by far the minority these days, often disdained and marginalised by their worldly bishops and confreres, these are the priests whose voice resonates within our souls as the true voice of the Good Shepherd.


To date, only one priest has gone on the record in Scotland (and, as far as we know, in the entire UK) to express his shock at the way the Bishops are implementing Government Covid-19 restrictions, placing themselves at the service of the State – that is to say, they have chosen to serve Man not God. This, of course, contradicts the Gospel imperative: Our Lord teaches very clearly that we cannot serve two masters – we must choose God or the world.  If we try to serve both, we will come to hate the one and love the other (Luke 16:13)  The Bishops of  Scotland and the wider UK seem to have made their choice. This, of course, has been true for many years now, so we are entitled to ask if, in fact, they have come to hate God. They certainly do not appear to love Him more than the corrupt politicians from whom they are taking their orders, turning the Father’s House into a den of thieves. 

But, what about the rest of us? Martin Blackshaw has made his position crystal clear: he’ll be complying with this ridiculous Covidiocy around ten years after Cadbury ceases chocolate-making.  But what about you and me – will we go along with these outrageous restrictions through fear of fines and imprisonment? Are we likely to choose God over Nicola Sturgeon, in the absence of the kind of moral and spiritual leadership which we have a right to expect from our religious leaders?  Bishops and priests are clearly afraid of the possibility of finding themselves with a criminal conviction, and their fear is understandable… until, that is, we recall the many priest-martyrs at the time of the Reformation who were criminalised  – and executed  (our own Scottish martyr, John Ogilvie SJ included) – simply for refusing to stop offering Holy Mass.  Quite a standard – sets the bar very high for us all. 

So… what now?  Should priests who refuse the Sacraments to non-compliant laity, be disciplined?  Share your thoughts…   

            Immaculate Heart of Mary,          pray for us!

    Bravo Martin – well done for standing up to that bully priest. I hate having to speak about priests in this way but they have just lost so much respect now – I don’t feel any way like I used to do about priests, sorry to say.

    As for the “what now” question – yes, I definitely think that priests like Fr Keevins ought to be disciplined quite severely for daring to refuse the sacraments to anyone because they refuse to wear a face mask and use hand sanitizer etc. It’s unbelievable because it shows that he does not understand what the sacraments are.

      The very fact that prelates and priests could even contemplate implementing such evil things in the House of God suggests to me that they are men of lost faith, the salt of the earth that has lost its savour.

      I was just reading tonight of a report linking a powerful Vatican Cardinal, Giovanni Angelo Becciu, to an $800,000 Vatican Bank transfer to Australian media and government agency sources at the time of Cardinal Pell’s trial and imprisonment on false sex charges. This man was in the firing line of Cardinal Pell when the latter was investigating corruption in the Vatican Bank. Becciu has since resigned and been stripped, I understand, of his Cardinals faculties.

      If we consider this in conjunction with the sexually corrupt Cardinals O’Brien and McCarrick, together with so many pro-LGBT, abortion-tolerant prelates and priests, we can easily see, as Archbishop Vigano and other good Churchmen have pointed out, that there is a “deep Church” operating together with the “deep State” against Our Lord. The Modernist poison these men and their blindly obedient priests have spread through the veins of the Church for 5 decades, catastrophically affecting both faith and morals, now culminating in a Covid-19 policy that contradicts Church teaching, insults God and deprives souls of grace, is straight from Hell. It is this corruption at the highest levels in the Church filtering all the way down through the clerical ranks that is the real killer virus to be feared and fought.
      It seems to me that we need a Pope strong in faith and firm in resolve to identify and laicise these wolves and their enablers.

    That’s great to see a layman following up on Fr Dunn’s fantastic letter – great stuff, Athanasius/Martin!

    The thing is about us all doing that – if our bishops had told us to not comply from the start, there’s no way the government could have fined us or treated us like criminals. The whole Catholic community? I don’t think so. But now that the bishops have sided with the government, actually OFFERING to close the churches and put the rules into place, we don’t stand a chance. We’ll be treated like criminals because I wouldn’t put it past priests like that Fr Keevins to phone the police and report anyone not obeying the government rules. These are seriously bad priests and bishops.

      I agree with you on all points. What these bishops and priests have done for years, and are doing again now, is abusing the respect and obedience owed to them by the Catholic faithful to rule like Pharisees. As you correctly point out, had they refused compliance with the State in this geopolitical crime against humanity then it wouldn’t have happened and millions of lives wouldn’t now be ruined, not to mention souls. It is entirely down to their abuse of ecclesiastical office that the world is presently under totalitarian godlessness.

    Sounds a lot like his brother on the Radio Clyde/Snyde football forum. You might even get a mention in his Sunday Mail column, Athanasius.

    He may be knuckling down to the bishops but he has a lot to learn about a person`s human rights and freedom of speech.

      Indeed he has, Frankier. But he obviously has even more to learn about the teaching of the Church and its superior supernatural mission on this earth, not to mention the reason why he was ordained.

    The following is an excerpt from a kind of online diary that Fr. Keevins publishes monthly under the heading “Fr. Frank’s Log”. It’s dated September 26, 2020 and it’s very telling.

    “…last Sunday I had the first celebration of Baptism, delighting to welcome two children from the one family into the community of the church. The Baptisms had originally been scheduled for last May, but obviously had to be postponed, but the mother of the children kept watching for the First Minister to give the green light and then immediately made contact to rearrange. It was a very happy event and all the necessary protocols were observed meticulously. In the weeks to come, presuming no greater restrictions are imposed, we hope also to celebrate the First Holy Communions for our local Primary Schools, also postponed from last May; and then the Confirmations of the children who were scheduled to be confirmed last March, on the very day that the churches were closed, which was on the Feast of St. Joseph. These children have now moved on to Secondary School, so there will be the task now of contacting and preparing them, and then organizing the service to confer the fullness of the Holy Spirit on their young lives…”

    Point 1: The Baptisms of two infants were delayed for 4 months out of servile fear for bodily health when the Church teaches that infants should be baptised as soon after their birth as is reasonably possible, lest, God forbid, they die unbaptised and unable to enjoy the beatific vision of God in eternity.

    Point 2: Note the reference to waiting for a green light from the First Minister, a clear and shocking admission from Fr. Keevins that our bishops and priests have surrendered the supernatural authority of the Church to the secular State and its atheist leaders.

    Point 3: First Holy Communions were likewise postponed for 4 months, the health of the body once again taking precedence over the health of the soul. In this regard we recall the words of Our Blessed Lord: “suffer little children to come unto me and hinder them not…”

    Point 4: Untill now I had no idea that Confirmations were being delayed until age 11 or 12. In my day the spiritual protocol was First Holy Communion at 7 followed one week later by Confirmation. Yet another sign of an eroded faith.

    Point 5: Note again that the Churches were closed on the Feast of St. Joseph, the very Patron of the Universal Church. There is something divinely foreboding about this choice of day by the bishops, especially as it was one full week before church closures were mandated by the State.

      “…presuming no greater restrictions are imposed”…

      Clearly, these priests intend to continue to obey the Government, no matter what.

      Far from getting used to their negligence, I am becoming more and more shocked at their brainless acceptance of the ridiculous rules being imposed by Nicola Sturgeon, given that there has been no significant rise in deaths due to this virus (not that we know the number of deaths due to this virus anyway, so convoluted the figures).

      And yet now we are heading for a second lockdown – Oh, just for two weeks, you understand… as the first lockdown was to be only for 3 weeks, remember? And we are still living in circumstances similar to the people in Communist China.

      Every time I go shopping, I think of Communist China – all the masked faces around me, some of them glaring because I am not wearing a mask.

      Even searching online for an image of a priest at Mass these days, brings up pictures of masked men. Faceless and Faithless.

        I didn’t know we are going to be put into lockdown for two weeks. That is really depressing. It seems to be a pattern now, taking away our freedoms in short spells, then changing things again and then getting strickter again. It’s really depressing. You can’t make plans. You don’t know what the rules will be two days from now. I can’t see any end in sight.

        We know it’s deliberately done for evil purposes now because six months of lockdown and restrictions have failed miserably and yet they want to do it all over again. No honest rational government would do that unless it has evil intentions and is deliberately destroying everything.

        October 6, 2020 at 1:11 pm
      • Athanasius


        You’ve summed it up so well – it’s like living in Communist China. The first lockdown took place in Communist China before spreading throughout the world via the WHO with its Marxist Secretary General.

        The blindness in people, particularly the clergy, is breathtaking and, for me, a divine punishment. They simply cannot see that the Beijing government is controlling this totalitarian evil. It has most governments and a majority of the world’s population dancing to its brutal tune like puppets.

        There is no question that this level of blindness to a global Communist takeover is directly lnked to the Third Secret of Fatima – that together with this present Pope whose personal ideology chimes perfectly with Communism.

        The Church is eclipsed and the world is in serious trouble, but it will change suddenly as Our Lady promised. These evil people have only a short time to do their worst and then they will be called to account, most especially the treacherous clergy who have handed their Master over to His enemies a second time.

        Your remark about the Third Secret is absolutely correct. No wonder the Vatican won’t release that part of it which explains the vision.

        I read somewhere recently that Pope Francis refused to read the Third Secret. At the time I dismissed that as being highly unlikely but now I’m not so sure. Would he honestly go ahead and sell out the Church China and now the rest of the Church TO China, if he actually had read the prophecy about the spread of Communism and the diabolical destruction within the Church and the takeover of Communism in the whole world?

        I’m really not so sure any more – I can’t imagine that he is so deeply steeped in evil that he would do that, in full knowledge of the Fatima facts. But I just don’t know…

        That’s exactly what’s going on here – the “leaders” (aka puppets) of the once-Christian West, having sold their souls to the Luciferians, are modeling their response to this mild form of flu (or common cold, as a corona virus is also known) on the response of Communist China.

        Wasn’t it the WHO that praised the Red Chinese response to the initial “outbreak”? So the WHO says “Jump!” and the puppets say “How high?”

        Is it not more the case that the WHO is China’s puppet? China says “jump” and the WHO says” how high and for how long do you want the next lockdowns around the world to last? We need to tell Nicola Stalin asap…”

        You’re right, but, desperately looking for a way to salvage my post, I come up with:

        After a fire, a flood, an explosion, an accident or even a foul smell, the main priority is to find the source. So why, with the exception of ‘The Donald’, has no one been even remotely interested in finding the real source of this virus?

        You can be sure that if had been traced to somewhere like the Faroe Islands they would have been blasted out of existence.

    A great article by Athanasius.

    I was interested to see the photo of St Mungo’s church at the top of the article because I’ve just seen it again in the news!

    The SNP MP can break the rules and get away with it when she’s actually infected, but there were a few workmen on the Isle of Man who were thrown in jail for two weeks for breaking a rule that they didn’t know about!

    The country is in a terrible state, people are miserable and if they’re not afraid of the virus they’re afraid of a snitcher phoning the police on them. No wonder people are having mental health problems, and there is no Church to turn to for solace – the bishops and priests are going along with it all and are very happy to do so. I still can’t get over them going to offer to close churches even before the lockdown was announced. I’ll never forget that.

    Fr Keevins is a disgrace and he should definitely be disciplined, along with any other priest who acts like a policeman, to refuse a person the sacraments. I’d never have believed this could happen, now I will believe anything.

        I didn’t know she had done a reading at the church – that’s appalling. I’ll bet she read from Chairman Mao’s wee red book. If she read a Scriptural passage from the Bible in a Catholic church, atheist and anti-Catholic that she is, then it says more about the apostate clergy who pandered to her hypocricy than the hypocrite herself.

      Margaret Mary,

      Funny you should mention that photo: when I saw it my first thought was, “That looks like an abandoned church.”

      Actually, spiritually speaking and thanks to apostate bishops and priests, it is precisely that: a church abandoned to the all-powerful State. Pray that Our Blessed Lord will once again drive the money-changers from His Temple.

      (In fact, it is the modern version of the money-changers who are responsible for this nightmare: the banking dynasties who control the world’s money supply.)

      What was that famous quote attributed to a Rothschild?

      “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!”

        RCA Victor,

        I am particularly saddened that this scandal occurred in St Mungo’s because that’s where I was baptised.

        And the Passionist priests used to come to our parish every year to give retreats – one week for the men and the next for the women. They were fantastic. The priests would hand out little prayer cards to people on the street. Whoever wrote that song “The Times They Are A-Changing” knew what they were singing about!

        You were baptised in St Mungo’s? How interesting is that. I somehow got the idea you were from the Balornock area. I need to pay better attention, LOL!

        I’ve been waiting for another avalanche of comments from all the people who came on to support Fr Dunn, but it’s not happening. I wonder why? IMHO it takes a lot of courage to do what Martin did – I wonder how many of those people who came on to praise Fr Dunn would do what Martin did, not that many I would guess, so you would think they’d want to support him as well. I don’t mean to cause trouble, and you can delete this if you wish, I just felt I had to say something because it seems odd to me. I was so delighted about Fr Dunn speaking out but I’m also delighted about Martin speaking up to the bully priest at St Mungo’s.

        I appreciate you raising this point. There is absolutely no point in people coming on to praise Fr. Dunn for his fidelity to the Catholic priesthood and Church teaching and then going silent when I highlight a real-life example of the evil Father was addressing.

        The old and true adage is: “evil abounds because good men do nothing”. Fr. Dunn’s letter and my follow-up example necessitates action on the part of those who acknowledge the evil highlighted. These people need to make a firm resolve to take public action for the love of the faith, they need to abandon these unfaithful bishops and priests and seek out true Catholic clergy for their sanctification, and they need to highlight this intention on public forums like this one.

        It takes a particular courage to stand up against abusive clergy, a courage that comes only from the grace of God. The natural inclination is to go along in silence, keep the head down, comply with the rules at least superficially, etc. But this is cowardice and it represents consent to their evil. We don’t have a choice in this matter of clerical loss of faith, we have souls to save and a judgment to face.

        A major contributor to the tragedy of our times, and this relates as much to the Covid-19 scam as to the horrendous deterioration of the Catholic religion under today’s Modernist clergy, is the silent compliance of the greater majority of ordinary people. There is too much silence and the indifference of it is carrying the world to Hell in a handcart.

        Athanasius has really said it all, in his reply to your very important point. I had just been saying the same thing to a friend on the phone before I came on and read your comment – where on earth are all the supposedly concerned people who were (rightly) delighted at reading Father Dunn’s letter?

        Of course, there is also the issue of certain people who present in most friendly manner to me in person, but who do not want to be publicly associated with me, or Catholic Truth.

        That explains some of the absentees. The fun bit for me is that I know what they think of me, but they have no idea what I really think of them!

        PS – do these people actually believe that the bishops and priests reading this – including Fr Keevins – will not notice that they are indifferent to his abuse of the sacraments, refusing them to people presenting for Confession or Mass unless they are muzzled? Really? Believe me, the bishops and priests are noticing. Big time.

      You would think by that article and by the response of the Archdiocese of Glasgow that Margaret Ferrier had deliberately exposed people to the Black Death rather than a flu. I noted the usual statement to induce fear “people are dying from this”. What they never say is that the people who are dying could also die from any like respiratory illness, largely frail elderly people and those with serious underlying health conditions. The hypocritical government is looking for Ferrier’s head on a platter, encouraged by the media, like a pack of dogs on a scent, yet the government deliberately put vulnerable elderly people into lockdown in care homes, whose subsequent deaths account for at least 50% of the Scottish total.

      These people, like their master Lucifer, are liars and deceivers, and that includes Lucifer’s servants in the Archdiocese. The Covid-19 crisis is an orchestrated crime against humanity for which these present Hitlers will one day be called to account. They certainly will not escape the divine justice!

      This is a flying visit to the blog – I’m really REALLY looking forward to seeing Tucker Carlson… thank you for that!

    • editor

      RCA Victor,

      Brilliant! Thank you for that. The only “almost hitch” was when Tucker (wrongly) anticipated that the author Alex Berenson was going to “correct” the President for saying not to be afraid of the virus (as he left hospital) and Tucker jumped in to say, don’t want to mislead viewers, yes, it is a terrifying virus. Cough (but not persistent, recurring)… Alex went on to say, tactfully, that, actually, no, that “the President said what needed to be said, we have to stop being so afraid!”

      Fantastic! That apart, my admiration for Tucker continues apace.

      Which is more than I can say for Ben Shapiro, sadly. In one of his “Sunday Specials” (from a year ago) he interviews Piers Morgan and lets him away with delivering some fake news. Example: Morgan expresses shock-horror that the President “told AOC (?) to go home”… When, what he ACTUALLY said was that if any of those Democratic politicians complaining about the USA didn’t like it here, they are free to leave.

      I say that every time I hear the claim that the UK is “racist”. I used to live in England, and if I’d felt that I was being discriminated against because I am a Scot, I’d have gone back home. Why would anyone want to live in a place where the entire nation was against them?

      And as Dennis Prager has pointed out, more than once, more black people have moved to American freely, chosen to live there, than were brought as slaves.

      Only today I saw a headline (which I can’t find now!) revealing that students in Scotland (one of the universities, I think) are set to trace their family links, if any, with the slave trade. What on EARTH would be the point of that? Crazy, crazy world.

      And the person to blame for that right now is Pope Francis. If he would only obey the Fatima instruction to consecrate Russia as Our Lady requested, it would be “game over”. But no, that requires a level of simple believing divine and Catholic Faith – and he’s too much a man of these times for that. Ironically, it was the atheist, George Bernard Shaw who wrote: It is difficult, if not impossible, for men to think differently from the fashion of the age in which they live..”

      Can’t argue with that!

    It just occurred to me, thinking of Margaret Ferrier’s reading of the Gospel during Mass at St. Mungo’s, that this woman is notoriously and publicly pro-LGBT and, given she’s SNP, presumably pro-abort also, yet she was invited to read the Gospel at a Catholic Mass in St. Mungo’s. What does this manifestation represent, if not clerical rejection of the Church’s infallible moral teaching?

      It’s now clear and irrefutable, that the bishops – and thus the priests – have no problem with LGBT+ “rights” and abortion – well, we’re not to obsess over the murder of unborn babies, don’t you remember? Pope Francis said that and the one of the spokesmen for the Scottish Church wrote a column in one of the alleged Catholic papers saying – more or less – that it was about time. Before that, when the previous popes made regular prolife pronouncements, the same “spokesman” lectured us all in the same vein. There are those who call him The Cushion -i.e. the property of the last person who sat on him. They are very bad people to do that…

      Which reminds me, “spokesman”? “spokesmen”? Where are they? I’ve never known so many “spokesmen” with nothing to say.

      Last I remember was Peter Kearney, the big shot spokesman for the Bishops telling the world that he was an SNP voter (which means he was speaking for the Bishops).

      However, to finish where I began; it’s not that long since I wrote a front page report in our newsletter quoting the Bishops’ welcome for LGBT+ lessons (and safe spaces) in Catholic schools. And in another front page report, I commented on the invitation extended to Nicola Sturgeon to address a Catholic audience on … wait for this …. Catholic schools.

      She could not speak highly enough of them! No wonder! Government indoctrination is writ large in every one!

      This is stuff – believe me – that nobody, but nobody could make up.

        It is truly unbelievable yet true – won’t be long now till they come out with “Herod was really a well-meaning, though much misunderstood, man” That’s the stunt they pulled with Luther and I’m just waiting for them to pull the same trick with the father of abortion. As for their silence or open support re the LGBT+ agenda, that indicates to me what half of them are up to behind closed doors.

        Bottom line is the majority of them are apostates who only hang on to their positions for the power and benefits it offers. There will come one almighty cleansing of the filth soon, though, and I do mean Almighty as in God’s wrath.

    I have to admit, I’m not sure how to break through the media/government-induced fear I see everywhere around me – fear and the insanity of complying with absurdity because of that fear. People avoiding getting too close to me on sidewalks (outdoors, no less), people giving me a wide berth in stores, people in charge of socially-distanced-destroyed events (like a choir I accompany) panicking because I object to the protocols (not to mention trying to sing with a mask on!).

    At the moment there is only one place in my life where there is zero fear, and the protocols are basically ignored, and that is because we are all well-informed: my parish.

    The other day I passed by two older ladies at the gym (where there is partial fear, mostly among older patrons), and overheard one of them say “The cases ain’t exactly going down!”

    She was referring to the scam of “a positive test = a case.” Not to mention the other half of the scam: the test is testing for a disease (that’s never been isolated).

    I wanted to stop them and ask them if they knew about these two cornerstones of the scam, but I didn’t. They probably would have thought I was crackers. Maybe I should have opened with,

    “Well at least you didn’t use a double negative!”

      RCA Victor,

      I know exactly what you mean – madness is everywhere, and the most unexpected people are living in total fear. I know people for whom the real crackdowns when they come will mean nothing – those who tell me that they don’t want this way of life to end, they feel safer, they want it to continue! I would bet hard cash, if I had any, that these sorts, in the main, might have washed their hands once a week, if that, before this craziness took hold. I’ve never seen such an irrational fear take hold of an entire country – let alone most of the world.

      As for double negatives… Well…

      We can’t break through that barrier because the globalist elite that has put it in place is too powerful, it controls everything. God, though, will destroy it in due course. One day it will all be out in the open and a good many powerful names will enter into infamy alongside Hitler, Stalin and other evil despots.

    Athanasius, what an experience and what a great header to this thread! Words escape me to comment on this. You couldn’t make it up, deserted and betrayed by the clergy. Some priests try to minister to their flocks but, for some reason, they obey the unjust directives of their bishops.

    Thank you Athanasius for once more defending Christ in all this madness!

    I feel you are putting yourself out on a limb and people like Fr Keevins may consider you to be in a majority of one, so is there any way that I could add my name and address to any future (???) correspondence you may have with these people in a, probably lame, effort to support you? Sort of petition like.

      I very much appreciate your Catholic bravery and sense of duty but I fear that we will never be able to garner sufficient signatures from Catholics to sweep this ecclesial rot from our country. Sad to say a majority of Catholics, many of them equally aware of the loss of supernatural faith in so many bishops and priests, do their lamenting in private, not wishing to rock the boat and bring potential persecution down on themselves. This tragic manifestation of cowardice in the face of duty, together with an even larger number who are just indifferent to the betrayal of our faith – a predictable result of 50 years of Modernist doctrinal poison and poor Catholic Catechesis – makes it almost impossible to bring our bishops and priests to account for their shockiong betrayal. I think that particular justice will have to wait until they each appear in due course before the Divine Judge.

      All we can do in the meantime is hope to chip away and win one or two back to truth by God’s grace. In this regard I find the young, who have been robbed of their Traditional Catholic religion by these Modernists, are more open to the truth when presented with it. The older generation, sadly, are not interested, they rejected the faith of their fathers years ago in favour of the new conciliar religion of Vatican II, that unholy union between the spirit of the Protestant Reformation and the French Revolution disguised with a Catholic gloss for appearance’ sake.

      False obedience has also played a large part in this, many Catholics being of the ridiculous mindset that bishops, priests, even Popes, are somehow immune from falling into heresy and apostasy. Well, Church history is replete with examples to the contrary. Indeed almost every heresy to have afflicated the Church since her foundation has been instigated by proud clerics perverting doctrine.

      This is the worst era of all, for the clerical poison of Modernism is not limited to one region or one country, as in the past, but is universal and entrenched. It is so entrenched, in fact, that even the eminent voices of the Archbishop Lefebvre’s and Archbishop Vigano’s of the Church are largely ignored. In fine, petitions won’t dent so many clerical hearts hardened against divine truth.

        I agree with everything you say. I can honestly say that I know of only one person who feels the same way as myself amongst all the parishioners I know in any of the three parishes which are served from the one parish.

        It really is sad and pathetic.

        I remember a former bishop of the diocese who, in a book he wrote, described the attitude of Catholics to the clergy as `infantile deference`. They probably thought it was praise considering who wrote it.

        October 7, 2020 at 4:35 pm
      • Athanasius


        I think the term “infantile deference” probably does sum up the trust Catholic souls had in their priests, who were once so worthy of such deference by their zeal and fidelity. That bubble has been long burst in our modern, post-Vatican II, Church, however, as more and more bishops and priests have shown themselves to be worldly wolves (careerists) in sheeps clothing. Trusting clergy in anything these days is at an all time low, sad to say, which is why they need to be watched and questioned at all times in regard to the faith and Church teaching. Failure in this extremely urgent duty is doubtless already leading countless souls to Hell, following bad clergy pied-piper fashion.

    According to a certain American site and as predicted on Catholic Truth Scotland many months ago, it is understood that Boris will make the ‘Covid App’ compulsory to enter all amenities (Travel, Shops, Doctors Surgeries, Hospitals etc) very soon. Approximately fifteen million apps so far have been downloaded voluntary, however Boris needs to imprison and control sixty seven million British citizens for the New World Order, so compulsory apps will be here soon. I wonder if Fr Keevins will only let Parishioners who have the ‘Covid App’ to enter the church and have the sacraments?

    I thought readers would also like to know that on the 29th April 2020, (The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence UK (NICE) gave Doctors and Nurses the authority to remove all food, water, essential medication from patients that could not reach their life goals that were critical frailty score 6 upwards. I call that GENOCIDE. A blanket DNR operates across UK. So we can already see the depopulation of British Citizens has started in the UK.

      Now that the governor of New York has said he will close down churches and synagogues which don’t comply, the bishops will use that approach in the churches, afraid of being shut down. It would only take Boris or Nicola to give the word, and the bishops would obey. It’s unbelievable.

      I’ve never felt it so clearly as I do now – this is the Fatima warning about the spreading of Communism coming true.

      A priest who interviewed Sr Lucia asked her if Communism would spread to every nation in the world and she replied “yes”. Then he asked, even America? And again she said “yes”.

      It means we need to pray very hard for the Consecration of Russia but also for the re-election of Trump to put a spoke in their wheel, and delay things.

        I couldn’t agree more, we can warn people, mitigate it and slow it down as much as possible. There is little chance of the ‘Consecration of Russia’ at this time and with this Pope (but miracles can happen of course).

    In the video clip below former BBC Presenter Sue Cook says the Church hasn’t “covered itself in glory” in all this Covid 1984 (I have no doubt Sue Cook would be horrified by the attitude of Fr Keevins towards Athanasius if she were present at the time). Sue Cook also mentions the “silence of the Church’s” as well. She goes onto say that if her Mother was in hospital and she was banned from seeing her, she would still go and see her regardless of the Police. It would be interesting to see Sue Cook visit St Mungo’s in Glasgow whilst not wearing a mask! Sue Cook believes in ‘herd immunity’ (don’t tell Fr Keevins).

    October 7, 2020 at 7:38 pm
    • editor


      Sue’s mention of the Church’s failure to speak out was totally ignored by Anna – that is one of the examples in my mind when I said Anna failed to develop issues raised by Sue. She was only half-listening to her interviewee, so that is a weakness, sadly, which I hope she addresses.

      You are right to say that Sue would be well advised to avoid St Mungo’s and all parishes with priests like Fr Keevins, as well as avoiding mentioning her belief in herd immunity!

      Well said!

  • francescomarta

    Former BBC Presenter Sue Cook also mentions about the ‘vaccine’ situation and “if we will need some sort of certificate to see if we can travel.” She said she would like a proper investigation into that.
    Well, once again as predicted on Catholic Truth Scotland many months ago (tomorrows news today blog) the World’s first “Covid Passport” is now being trialed on flights from Heathrow, UK this week. It requires passengers to be tested prior to travelling at a certified lab with the result being generated onto a QR code which can then be scanned at the airport. See video below for details from Carl Vernon.

    Carl Vernon also talks on another Video about cameras in Kent observing that people are social distancing (blueprint obviously from China)

    Another Video by “Reverend Simon Sideways” describes how he could not get a job because he refused to wear a mask, he is exempt but believes in standing up to tyranny! (not posted due to bad language). Well Reverend Simon Sideways, don’t try popping into St Mungo’s in Glasgow for a quick prayer if your passing, Fr Keevins will be having words with you (not that I expect it to be open during the week anyway)!

    This brings me back to what Athanasius said that without acting on the information we have, this tyranny escalates which has now happened. We are having our freedoms stripped away at an alarming rate and whilst we still have a window of opportunity I am appealing to ALL to do whatever they can to stop this juggernaut!

      Thank you for your recent posts and videos – I’ve now watched the Sue Cook interview – she was very good, but I’m feeling a bit impatient with Anna Brees. She really is missing some of this with her exclusive focus on trying to unearth what is going on at the BBC. That’s important of course but Sue is obviously thoroughly clued in and instead of developing some of the information which she revealed, Anna kept trying to redirect the conversation to the BBC/media in general. I was very impressed with Sue Cook who always came across as a self-effacing person, humble etc. There’s not a lot of us left… 😀

      Anyway, I’ve obeyed your exhortation to spread the word to our politicians. As it happens, the email I sent to my MSP about a week or so ago, requesting more details on the “7 new cases” reported all over the place that particular day, brought forth an unsatisfactory response to which I replied as follows (watch for the information which YOU posted, copied to my MSP):

      Dear (Name),

      Thank you for your email, which did not, however, answer any of my questions. The information I sought is not at all a matter of patient confidentiality. That only applies if names are requested – as demonstrated by the link you sent giving general figures. Notably, as with the figures given at these pointless TV briefings, there are no recovery figures. As is clearly the intention, we are led to believe that this is a deadly virus from which no-one recovers. On the contrary, it is a virus from which the majority recover (as Sir Chris Whitty said way back in March and has repeated a few times – they obviously want to avoid outright panic on the streets but want to keep the fear level high.)

      I am now going to copy from a comment on the Catholic Truth blog, because any genuinely concerned politician who believes what we are being told about this virus and these harsh restrictions must surely want to know if he is being misled. Here’s the comment, in bold:

      [Watch] the must see video below which explains that International Lawyers are now taking Governments to court in lawsuits against draconian measures “lockdowns, Mandatory masks and Social distancing” which have affected billions of people around the world economically and health-wise including deaths. The presenter says that thy have given all their scientific facts to a growing number of International Lawyers so that they can now challenge the legality of the rules introduced in their own Country and award compensation to the affected and also charge the perpetrators with “Crimes against Humanity”
      We are aware that some countries, people are put in prison for not wearing a mask, also children are being removed from their home and most worrying you can be shot in the head in the Philippines for not wearing a mask or wearing it incorrectly.

      Another pointer is that the PCR test is completely unable to detect infection and its inventor Dr Kary Mullis stated it was NOT a test for infection!
      If readers have not already written to their MP informing their of possible legal action being taken against them now is the time to do so…
      See link below and circulate widely Ends.

      I suggest that it might help Nicola Sturgeon to see that video. She is more likely to watch it, if you send it rather than me and moi. Just a thought.

      I’m taking the liberty of adding one more video on the off-chance that you have not seen any of the various videos online showing the “elite” at the World Economic Forum admitting that they are using the virus to “reset the world”. The term “New World Order” is, of course, a euphemism for Communism. In other words, most politicians are mere puppets in all of this. Although there is obviously some level of co-operation. The President of Belarus, for example, gave a press conference in which he revealed that the World Bank and IMF had offered him a bribe of $940 million USD in the form of Covid Relief Aid, to introduce lockdown etc. He refused – street riots similar to those most likely funded by George Soros in the USA, followed.

      Again, I’ve selected the video about The Great Reset published on the CT blog, although there are many others if you wish to search on YouTube (The Great Reset brings up a selection). As you will see, in the video I’ve selected, hatred of Donald Trump is very clear, because he knows what they are up to, and he refuses to pander to the globalist agenda. As a nationalist, you should agree with him!

      By the way, I take your point about conflating “fascist/Communist” government – however there are elements of both Fascism and Communism in our new system of governance – rule by decree. So conflating often saves us from long-winded explanations! That’s all the author of that piece was doing – he certainly knows the difference between the two evils. End of Email.

      I second what you have suggested – bloggers, one and all, I urge you all to send the two video links in this post to your local politicians. Half of them won’t have a clue what is going on – even Anna Brees is only half-informed about all of this so if you have a minute to go onto her YouTube platform and post the above links, that will help her. She assures her followers that she reads all the comments under her videos. C’mon, we need to share the load. It can’t be left to Francescomarta and my unworthy self…

        I have already written to my own MP along with e-mails to Ann Widdecombe, Tobias Ellwood and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

        According to ‘The Mail’ Vaccines will start next month.

        The New England Journal of Medicine argues that “substantive penalties could be justified” for vaccine noncompliance: “including employment suspension or stay-at-home orders,” report says

        I have also noticed the incredible silence of our Doctors, Nurses and other allied Professionals in our own Country.

        That video is the most uplifting and hopeful sign I’ve seen for people all over the world throughout this Covid-19 scam. I foresee Boris Johnson, Nicola Sturgeon, other so-called world leaders and their criminal scientific and media enablers going to jail for this crime against humanity.

        My brother received a phone call from his employer this morning to say that his job has been made redundant following Sturgeon’s latest lockdown of Central Scotland. His work was largely within the hospitality industry which she has now utterly crushed with a new round of restrictions. He’ll be adding his name to this international legal class action, naming her as responsible for the loss of his income.

        This is the beginning of the fight back of citizens everywhere – Johnson, Sturgeon and other despots around the world, together with all other major players in this crime against humanity, can look forward to disgrace and prison for their wilful part in this destruction of lives and economies. These seemingly untouchable people are about to go down in world infamy alone with Hitler, Stalin and their like.

        I take it you mean the video which I sent to my MSP? That’s a real eye-opener and should worry the politicians involved in this scam, because they really are highly likely to end up in prison in the future. This is so obviously a scam – the facts delivered in that video are irrefutable. We need to all be very strong in refusing to comply, and spreading these fact to everyone around us – if there are still idiots who don’t want to believe the facts, write them off as Covidiots and leave them to find out the hard way.

        Below a round-robin email I received from Jon Rappoport…

        The Smoking Gun: Where is the coronavirus? The CDC says it isn’t available.

        by Jon Rappoport

        (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed…

        The CDC document is titled, “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel.” It is dated July 13, 2020. (Link)

        Buried deep in the document, on page 39, in a section titled, “Performance Characteristics,” we have this: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays [diagnostic tests] designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA…”

        The key phrase there is: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available…”

        Every object that exists can be quantified, which is to say, measured. The use of the term “quantified” in that phrase means: the CDC has no measurable amount of the virus, because it is unavailable. THE CDC HAS NO VIRUS.

        A further tip-off is the use of the word ‘isolates.” This means NO ISOLATED VIRUS IS AVAILABLE.

        Another way to put it: NO ONE HAS AN ISOLATED SPECIMEN OF THE COVID-19 VIRUS.



        As if this were not enough of a revelation to shock the world, the CDC goes on to say they are presenting a diagnostic PCR test to detect the virus-that-hasn’t-been-isolated…and the test is looking for RNA which is PRESUMED to come from the virus that hasn’t been proved to exist.

        And using this test, the CDC and every other public health agency in the world are counting COVID cases and deaths…and governments have instituted lockdowns and economic devastation using those case and death numbers as justification.

        If people believe “you have the virus but it is not available,” and you have the virus except it is buried within other material and hasn’t been extracted and purified and isolated, these people believe the moon is made of green cheese.

        This is like saying. “We have the 20 trillion dollars, they are contained somewhere in our myriad accounts, we just don’t know where.” If you don’t know where, you don’t know you have the money.

        “The car keys are somewhere in the house. We just don’t where.” Really? If you don’t know where, you don’t know the keys are in the house.

        “The missing cruise missile is somewhere in the arsenal, we just don’t where.” No. If you don’t know where, you don’t know the missile is in the arsenal.

        “The COVID-19 virus is somewhere in the material we have—we just haven’t removed it from that material. But we know what it is and we’ve identified it and we know its structure.” NO YOU DON’T. YOU ASSUME THAT.

        Science is not assumptions.

        “But…but…there is a study which says a few researchers in a lab isolated the virus…”

        They say they did. But in July, the CDC is saying no virus is available. I guess that means trucks were not available to bring the virus from that lab to the CDC. The trucks were out of gas. It was raining. The bridge was washed out. The trucks were in the shop. Joe, the driver, couldn’t find his mask, and he didn’t want to leave home without it…

        Science is not assumptions.

        The pandemic is a fraud, down to the root of the poisonous tree.

        Yes, the Gloria TV video. I have copied the link with accompanying comment to Nicola Sturgeon, Boris Johnson, President Trump and Fox News and the Bishops Conference of Scotland. My accompanying comment to Sturgeon, Johnson and the bishops was that when this case is proven in court successfully, as it will be, the people will be coming for them to bring them to justice. I also copied the aforesaid video to Desmond Swayne MP, one of only a small handful of British politicians with integrity.

    Here is a link which you may find interesting and maybe helpful.
    However with the caveat that unfortunately it is the work of English lawyers dealing in English law; I see that some people from Scotland have asked for a Scottish version and I hope one is forthcoming. .

    These lawyers warn that their advice would need to be tested in actual court cases. I think unfortunately we have to remember that the judiciary these days is politicised and on the side of the Government.

        Don’t worry about causing confusion – you’ll never be in the same league as the Governments of the UK.

        For the first time ever, I heard a commentator on TalkRadio say that, while he thought initially, it was fair enough that the “four nations” made their own Coronavirus decisions, he’s changed his mind. The confusion that is caused by not knowing whether we’re on foot or on horseback half the time, just highlights that particular nonsense.

        Imagine being on a train from Glasgow to London, for example, and having to furiously Google to see the updates for Scotland and England knowing that at any minute, you could be breaking the law of either country. Crackers.

        There is some good news, though in that although for a time support for an independent Scotland was growing, apparently that’s now changed, thanks to the increasing realisation that we are being ruled (ruthlessly) by the dictatorial First Minister.

        Interesting, if true – it was a passing remark in the above TalkRadio interview…

    Here, folks, is a warning of Communism arriving in the UK from someone who, I assume, knows nothing about Fatima! This is the latest email round-robin from Simon of the Keep Britain Free campaign…

    Dear Supporter,

    Leicester became the first city in Britain to be placed under local lockdown on 29th June and Greater Manchester fell soon after at the end of July. Weeks on and citizens in both cities continue to be unlawfully stripped of their freedoms and liberties.

    Now it has been announced that Birmingham is likely to be on national watch within days and could be the next city to be forced into a local lockdown. This is despite infection rates reaching just 30 cases out of 100,000.

    To everyone in Birmingham, I suggest you refuse the tests and make a stand against these obscene measures! These policies echo life under a communist dictatorship and the Government simply cannot be allowed to send swathes of the country into lockdown whenever it so chooses.

    As the days go by and the Government seems more and more intent on ruining people’s livelihoods, the more our movement continues to grow and along with it, the media coverage. Last weekend, we featured on the front cover of The Sunday Times Magazine – if we were so marginalised in our opinions, I don’t believe a leading national newspaper would have dedicated six pages to them.
    The Sunday Times – ‘How did facemasks become part of the culture war?’
    The Telegraph – ‘The law is no protection against modern tyranny’
    The Conservative Woman – ‘We ought to obey God rather than man’

    It is without question that the Government’s decision to unilaterally lock the UK down marks the most serious imposition on personal freedoms in recent history.

    Already tens of thousands have been sentenced to death, millions of children have been deprived of an education, our economy has been left in ruins and we have experienced the largest fall in employment in over a decade!

    With the possibility of these restrictions being re-imposed looming over all our heads, it is only right that the Government is held to account and the legality of its actions questioned.

    Our economy and citizens simply cannot afford another U-turn by this Government. It is vital that we continue to press for a return to a normal way of life and fight to ensure that lockdowns, both regional and national, simply cannot be allowed to happen again.

      Keep Britain Free and readers need to be aware that a Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill 2020 has just been passed in Parliament. This gives freedom and power to MI5 and other disciplines including the Environmental Agency to kill/ torture people in the interest of either National Security, Detected Crime or Disorder (I wonder if this includes protests?) and for the interest of the Economic well being of the UK.

      Only a third of the MP’s bothered to turn up to vote for such an important issue.

    I’m honestly beginning to think that part of the problem with the Scottish bishops is that they are a few sandwiches short of a picnic – not only theologically, but mentally.

    Here, for example, we have their letter to Scotland’s 500 parishes, admitting that their church doors need to be open “now more than ever,” yet continuing to embrace State-dictated protocols that effectively make “open” churches closed.

    Warning: fast for at least 2 hours before reading this, lest you be at risk of losing your (lunch/dinner/elevensees):

    After I posted the above article, it occurred to me that this letter might be the Scottish bishops’ response to Father Dunn! If so, it demonstrates two things: one, they are feeling the heat of outrage among the faithful, and two, they are utterly impotent regarding defending the rights of the Church that they allegedly represent.

      This is a knee jerk reaction to Fr Dunn and Athanasius. They are worried that people are beginning to see through this scam with the Bishops being complicit in it all. They don’t like their deeds being exposed to the light.

      RCAVictor & Editor

      I have just read that report and I’m afraid I don’t see anything in it that suggests a retreat of the Scottish Bishops from their partnership with evil government in the matter of Covid-19 rules.

      I have just emailed Vatican News with this response to their hypocrisy. Not my best ever letter but I’ve lost patience with these hypocrites.

      Dear Sir/Madam,

      Reading your report on the Scottish Bishops insisting that churches remain open and safe, a wry smile came to my face. These so-called Churchmen closed all churches in Scotland for four months, suspending all Masses and Sacraments, an unprecedented atrocity they have since followed up on with a strict sanitising regime for access to the House of God, also unheard of in Church history.

      I was personally informed by a Glasgow parish priest on Saturday that unless I obey government rules for entrance to the Church I will not be allowed to enter. In fine – no mask, no sacraments! What this evil represents effectively is the superior supernatural mission of the Church having been made subordinate to inferior secular government, a role-reversal that is condemned by Church teaching. These complying bishops are hypocrites and pharisees and the faithful have caught on to their faithlessness and sell out to “the Prince of this world”. Their feigned concern now for people’s spiritual, mental and emotional welfare, while continuing to comply with godless government cruelty, is despicable to say the least.

      The video link below describes how an international coalition of top litigators, scientists and physicians has prepared an overwhelming case of evidence against government leaders and co-conspirators in this Covid-19 hoax, a case that proves without doubt that the pandemic is utterly fabricated for financial and geopolitical advantage. The lawyer leading the challenge intends to take a class action against these people in a U.S. court, citing them for having perpetrated what it describes as “the greatest crime against humanity ever committed”. When this case is successful, as it will be given the irrefutable evidence accrued, I fully intend to sue the Archdiocese of Glasgow for partnering with these evil forces to the great detriment of truth and justice, and so many souls entrusted by Our Lord to their care.

      These bishops fully deserve to be exposed in public for the treacherous shepherds they are and it must be a public trial that highlights to Catholics once and for all that our modern bishops are liberal careerists whose silent compliance with this wickedness has reached its limit. They will be called to account both in this world and the next for their appalling disdain for the House of God and the souls under their care. My cat has more supernatural faith than these men!

      Sincerely in Jesus & Mary

        I don’t think either RCA Victor or me and moi suggested any “retreat” by the Bishops. That would have called for its own thread, with the headline in capital letters trimmed with blazing lights!

        Clearly, the Bishops are not changing course. There’s no retreat. What is also clear, though, is the “new” rhetoric, more “Catholic” language – most of it taken from this blog and your comments in particular!

        How else to explain the acknowledgement that now more than ever we need churches and prayer? And what about the reference to The Church’s response to plagues in history etc. There was nothing like that in their previous statements about this prior to the publication of Fr Dunn’s letter. They’re using the rhetoric of Catholicism quickly followed by the language of Pontius Pilate.

        Meanwhile, back at Holyrood, chaos reigns… The latest controversy? When is a cafe NOT a cafe? You truly could not make this stuff up…

        Yes, I see what you mean, there is a mellowing in tone in an attempt to regain some credibility amongst the faithful.

        Still not retreating from their sellout of the Church and souls to “the Prince of this world” and his evil legislators, though. The day they abandon their insistence on face masks, hand sanitisers, contact details and social distancing as requirements for access to the House of God and the Sacraments is when people might begin to think they still have a little supernatural faith left in their careerist souls. that’s about as likely as a heatwave in the middle of December.

        I think the court systems of the world are going to be quite busy in the years ahead, prosecuting all the professional liars, Moloch-worshipers, and group-think Nazis who were just “doing their jobs.” Perhaps Nuremberg II would be an appropriate historical description of this.

        Editor has already commented on the “retreat,” but clearly the Bishops’ letter is pure spin, an attempt at damage control after Truth reared its unwanted head. Equally as clear, their lame attempt has failed, and put them in an even worse light. When a secularized and corrupted hierarchy has to resort to public relations tactics, as in the American sex-abuse scandals, it’s a sure sign they have been painted into a corner.

        Or, to put it another way, those who live by PR, instead of by the Social Reign of Christ the King, will be destroyed by PR.

        It was one man who was shot in the head and, while he was not wearing a mask, he was actually shot because he was attacking people with a scythe.

        Editor: would you provide a source for that, please, because the information I cited came from the lawyer in the video posted on gloriaTV. I mean, you’re not seriously suggesting that a lawyer would tell a lie, are you? I’m shocked…

        I wouldn’t be too quick to write this off as a one-off, there’s more to the story. We only have the word of the authorities that the man was wielding a scythe in a dangerous manner.

        Here’s part of the Daily Mirror’s report on it:

        …The death is the first coronavirus related killing to take place in the country after President Rodrigo Duterte warned anyone not following lockdown measures would be shot. In a televised address last week the strong-man leader said it was vital everyone cooperates and follows home quarantine measures.

        He also said the abuse of medical workers was a serious crime that would not be tolerated.

        “It is getting worse. So once again I’m telling you the seriousness of the problem and that you must listen,” Mr Duterte said on Wednesday.

        “My orders to the police and military … if there is trouble and there’s an occasion that they fight back and your lives are in danger, shoot them dead. Is that understood? Dead. Instead of causing trouble, I will bury you.”

        Amnsesty International condemned the remarks as “deeply alarming” and said they follow reports of inhumane punishments for lawbreakers of the coronavirus lockdown, such as being detained in dog cages and sitting for hours in the sun…

      In confirmation of these crucial paragraphs in the LifeSite article…

      “Contrary to assertions by the WHO, German virologist Christian Drosten and Lothar Wieler of the German Robert Koch-Institut (roughly equivalent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), PCR tests “do not give any indication of an infection with any virus, let alone an infection with SARS-CoV-2,” Fuellmich said.

      “Not only are PCR tests expressly not approved for diagnostic purposes, as is correctly noted on leaflets coming with these tests, and as the inventor of the PCR test, Kary Mullis, has repeatedly emphasized,” he continued. “Instead, they are simply incapable of diagnosing any disease.”

      “Contrary to the assertions of Drosten, Wieler and the WHO, which they have been making since the proclamation of the pandemic, a positive PCR test result does not mean that an infection is present,” Fuellmich emphasized. “If someone tests positive, it does not mean that they are infected with anything, let alone with a contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus.”

    I do not know how to respond, having just received Archbishop Cushleys Pastoral letter. In it, he states so many strange things. I include His Grace in every Rosary as I am so very concerned. The Archbishop has told us faithful to get to Mass as often as we can.
    I live in a rural parish of approximately 300 parishioners (over two small churches) – we are allowed 15 “tickets” to assist at the Holy Sacrifice and we have Saturday morning 11 am Mass ( as an additional Mass offered to meet the Sunday obligation?) a Mass on Sunday at 9 am and a Mass at 11 am so that adds up to 45 “tickets” out of 300? I do not know how to respond to His Grace.
    The Archbishop also asks us to “place our scruples aside” regarding his ( non – authoritative) instruction to receive Our Lord in my hands. Words escape me!
    His Grace adds that watching Mass on the computer is good.
    I am so distressed by Shepherd’s lack of shepherding, today reflecting on the sorrowful mysteries and seeing the sheep on the hills as I walked, asking Our Lord to take the blindfolds off the Shepherds He has granted us and then to return home and to read the Archbishop’s letter. I prayed the Hail Holy Queen.
    The inheritors of the Apostles Sacred mandate to teach and govern appears lost in a sea of pollical propaganda from these 100 or so men and women in the Scottish Parliament.

    God save us.

      That is just horrendous.

      However, it’s hardly surprising. One of the first answers Archbishop Cushley gave to a reporter when he arrived in Scotland to take up the reins after the O’Brien scandal was “there’s no crisis (in the archdiocese)”

      He was hardly going to set about cleaning house if he thought everything was in good order.

      I’m not sure if you are planning to come to our public rosary tomorrow, but if so, would you please ask somebody to point me out – I’ll be the slim, blonde, glamorous woman with a thinly disguised halo round my head – 😀 Seriously, somebody is sure to recognise me and I really would like to have a brief chat after the rosary.

      Parking, by the way, is only for those who have won the lottery, so I recommend either train or bus.

      I think we all share your anxiety and a certain despondency, which we really shouldn’t succumb to. We are only human, however, and right now “His Grace” and so many other “His Graces” have lost the grace of God and are blind leaders serving secularism. It is truly a unique tragedy in the history of the Church but I’m afraid it’s the reality, and it includes a Pope who apprently no longer believes in the supernatural mission entrusted to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. What a judgment these men have in front of them unless they immediately repent of their betrayal of Our Lord and his flock.

    Dear Bloggers,

    This was addressed to Henry on another blog in answer to a point he made, but is also 100% relevant to this blog if we are to stop this evil suppression of our Human rights. hence have pasted it here.


    You are absolutely right. We stand up and fight.
    Incorrect information, deceit, suppression & 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:

    Please watch this video. It is 50 minutes long and you 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!


    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!

    We have already appealed to any Doctors/Scientists/ health Professionals willing to speak out on this fake Science as the window of opportunity is closing fast, I now appeal to any Lawyers out there who give us some advise on the incidents below and on how to address the tyranny we are now facing daily. Please also address the rights of Catholics wanting to enter the sanctuary of God without being harassed by the Priests like Fr Keevins and Bishops.

    This is happening in all areas of our lives, I recently spoke to the retired Nurse (mentioned in a previous thread regarding Sweden being a controlled group) who informed me she was denied entry to a Charity shop because she would not use the shop’s sanitiser. She explained this has an adverse affect on her Asthma and after remonstrating with the assistant who then said she would get the Manager, ending up walking out due to the embarrassment caused by the incident.(we know how deadly those sanitisers are – see Dr. Vernon Coleman’s Video on these)

    In the next case, the Nurse tried to book an Optician appointment and after informing them she would not be wearing a Mask was told that it would be up to the Optician if they would see her and that they are following Government Guidelines. Their Head Office also reiterated this.

    The Nurse then contacted a very helpful Disability Discrimination Service Provider(not trained Lawyer) who informed her that she could have a case under the “Equality Act” with the Charity Shop not providing “Reasonable Adjustments” (facility to wash her hands soap and water) because of her disability (asthma) and causing her distress. They provided a link, which I attach below

    Please go to Resources, type in Services and it is should be the fourth letter down template which can then be sent to the offender.

    Another link is ACAS Disability & Discrimination,as%20well%20as%20other%20people%20because%20of%20disability.

    Where is the science behind the tyranny in our churches and places to shop? De Vernon Coleman asks the same question on this video clip below (previously censored I think)

      Yes, I agree with you, but the people in examples given have had NOTHING to FEAR from being lacadaisical or even lying to us.

      If they have great lose to fear through a major court action/pending court action, by a large group, I believe, they will take notice through the fact that they could loose a lot/everything for not giving the full truth.

      But everyone needs to gather that little bit of snow, therefore making the ball larger and larger and terrorize them by the snowball sixe them for untruth, lack of accurate information.

      That ammour for this is all to be found in the video linkI detailed, and I regret to say it, but if people think they have a chance of financial gain/get money, it is a stronger driver/influencer.

        Our Lady of Guadalupe,

        I agree with you that a larger group would have more impact taking action in the issues regarding face masks and sanitisers, but the reason we are in this situation is because people do not resist on an individual basis but continue to comply, so the restrictions increase. If people wear the mask in Church and elsewhere, then the Government will push for masks to be worn in the streets next and so on. The blue print for the New World Order is to make sure everyone will take the Vaccine, are digital prisoners (know where you are, what you are doing and what you are buying) in a cashless society, everything that is happening now is simply herding us to this point.

        I believe one person can do much good, you only have to look at Rosa Parks who played a pivotal role in the Civil Rights Movement. Also look what our own Athanasius has done single handed in bringing our so called Shepherds to task, long may it continue.

    Matthew 18 – parable of the forgiven but unforgiving servant. You had just left the confessional and you took it upon yourself not just to justify yourself but to accuse another!
    Peter 2:18 – We should obey civil authorities. Also Jesus: “give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s”. I think you’ll find that the closure of the Churches, while appearing not to be ideal is actually not the catastrophe we thought because it has encouraged the Faith to spread online. Anyway “My thoughts are not your thoughts” says the Lord. You should contemplate edifying things rather than feeding your mind with nasty stories about allegedly corrupt prelates. I feel that you have been doing the bullying here. So much so that I am going to put an alias down here if I have to. May the Lord bless you by opening your eyes to seeing the plank in your own eyes.

    Editor: what a nasty comment. Normally, I would either remove any personal remarks before permitting a new comment to be published, OR I’d just delete it. I’m leaving this as is, despite it being packed with personal (uncharitable) remarks because it is just SO ignorant – in both political and religious terms, and it is certainly absent even the most basic understanding of Catholic teaching on the relationship between Church and State, that some of our bloggers just might be able to help educate you in the matter.

    E***e (can’t write your full pseudonym or my comment will go straight to moderation)

    I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt in assuming that you are a Catholic aged under 50 years and raised entirely in the post-Vatican II religion, which is not remotely the same as the Catholic religion that existed for almost two thousand years up to that Council.

    Assuming again that you have never personally studied the traditional teaching of the Church, especially in regard to the principle theological virtue of divine charity, then it is perfectly understandable that you should respond to my article emotionally and, dare I say, sycophantically.

    The primary objective of charity, contrary to the human social justice narrative of today’s bishops and priests, is to love God supernaturally above all things and our neighbour as ourselves. Sometimes this virtue is extremely difficult to practice since it necessitates speaking truthfully and forthrightly about the public failings of spiritual superiors whose words and/or actions offend against Church teaching and put immortal souls, including their own, in danger of eternal damnation.

    My response to Fr. Keevins behaviour falls into this category and is not in the least comparable with the Gospel examples you quoted, which are incomplete and out of context.

    The obedience to civil authorities you cited from Peter 2:18, for example, is properly explained by Our Lord Himself in the accompanying text you reference, which I notice you only partially quote to fit with your comments. Our Lord did indeed command that we “Render to Caesar what is Caesar’s”, but you forgot to add “and to God what is God’s”. In fine, obedience to civil authorities is subordinate to obedience to God and cannot therefore be used as a pretext to impose unjust civil laws on the Church to the detriment of her divine mission on earth.

    As for the servant in the parable who was forgiven a huge debt by his master only to refuse forgiveness of a much lesser debt upon supplication from his subordinate, the moral of that one is that we should extend forgiveness to all who ask it of us if we would have God forgive our greater transgressions.

    This is not what happened with Fr. Keevins. I had just been to confession and received absolution, that much is true, but Fr. Keevins was not asking my forgiveness for anything when I left the Church, although he should have been for turning the House of God into a State sanitary facility. On the contrary, he more or less told me never again to return to his church for the Sacrament of divine mercy unless I was prepared, like him, to obey the secular rules imposed by a godless government.

    In other words, it is clear that the health of the mortal body is more important to Fr. Keevins than the health of the immortal soul. This is as sinful before God as it is unprecedented in Church history, utterly at odds with the spirit of Our Lord, with Church teaching and with the example of the saints, especially in times of plague and widespread infection.

    What it represents, in fact, is a parallel with the State-run “Patriotic Church” of Communist China, a schismatic organisation that fronts as the Catholic religion but whose clergy are completely subservient to the laws of that evil dictatorship in Beijing. This is unconscionable behaviour and every priest and bishop who is bowing to this “new normal” in our country needs to be called out for their treachery.

    I will say in conclusion that society is collapsing under this Covid-19 hoax because so many people are refusing to use their God-given reason to check the facts for themselves, quite content to just let the government and the media dictate how they are to think and live.

    Likewise in the Church, the most appalling and wicked evil is presently taking place under the pretext of health because so many Catholics like you are failing in duty to seek the truth and speak out, quite happy to blindly obey the bishops and priests as though they were infallible deities. This is not Catholic – blind obedience to superiors has never been a teaching of the Church for subordinates, as evidenced by St. Paul’s very public rebuke of St. Peter recorded in the Acts of the Apostles.

    The guiding rule for Catholics is twofold: 1. We are obliged to obey the legitimate authorities of the Church in all that is consistent with the faith handed down. 2. We are equally obliged to refuse obedience when those authorities act contrary to the faith, lest by obeying men we disobey God whose eternal law (the Church’s supernatural mission to sanctify and save souls) is far superior to, and immune from, unjust legislative impositions by the secular State.

    In summation, you and so many like you need to study the teaching of the Church, as is your Confirmation duty, otherwise you will remain superficial and emotional rather than informed and apostolic.

    My response to Fr. Keevins and the bishops is far more charitable before Our Lord than your outburst because it draws attention to their present betrayal of Church teaching and the flock entrusted to their care, which public rebuke, by the grace of God, may cause at least the more humble amongst them to seriously reflect and alter course.

    Silence in the face of what they are currently doing is tantamount to consent to their sin and will be judged by Our Lord accordingly. In this regard you, too, may wish to reflect!

      What a brilliant executed reply.

      The World these days is so obsessed with “touchy feelings” or “Victim Mentality” that they fail to see the bigger picture. What about all those souls going to hell because of the sins of the flesh as Our lady of Fatima warned, which is precisely why we need the Sacraments, Confession, Holy Mass, etc. Padre Pio also said “It would be easier for the World to exist without the sun than without the Holy Mass” As the Church goes down as does the World.

      The State does not have the Authority to dictate to the Catholic Church and if Fr. Keevins & Co, do a little research they will soon find out (if they are still ignorant) that the “Coronavirus” is a Scam to usher in Communism and maybe, or just maybe they may take their thumbs out of their mouths and stop the Mask, Sanitiser and Social Distancing nonsense and once again take up their ordained role of leading souls to Jesus Christ.

        Francescomarta & RCAVictor

        My thanks to both of you for your kind support and encouragement, which is more appreciated than you know.

        It is sometimes difficult to actually grasp what is happening and the ease with which is happening – the blind compliance of the majority to this evil is just breathtaking.

        I note that the video interview between Andrew Neil, one of the UK’s top political interviewers, and the WHO’s Dr. David Nabarro has been taken down by big tech. This is the video interview wherein Dr. Nabarro urges governments to stop locking down in response to Covid-19.

        What more proof do we need of the utter criminality of the people behind big tech; Twitter, Facebook and the like. These people should be in prison alongside Gates, Soros and no few government leaders and pseudo scientists. It is, as I say, the unleashing of the greatest evil on humanity and most are just walking blindly into it. For me, the blindness is such that it has to be a divine punishment on humanity for its sins, the fulfillment of the prophecy of Fatima that Atheistic totalitarianism is being establed all around the globe in the most audacious assault against God and freedom ever perpetrated.

        Under normal circumstances the Church would be there to alert mankind of this apocalytic evil, but, as we all know to our great sorrow, the hierarchy and the clergy, having no real supernatural faith left in their souls after decades of Modernism, are presently facilitatiing this masterful Luciferian assault on mankind. The tragedy of it is beyond words and the judgment awaiting them in eternity is beyond thinking about.

        Remember the 16th century prophecy of Our Lady at Quito, a prophecy for our time that ties in perfectly with the prophecy of Fatima. She told Mother Mariana De Jesus Torres that Freemasonry (the twin of Communism) would launch a global assault on Christian culture, virtue and the family, and that those who should speak out against it (the hierarchy and clergy) will remain silent.

        Not only are they silent, they are, as per Pope Francis’s playing down of abortion and playing up of merciful inclusion for perverts, actually working with Freemasonry to eradicate God and moral goodness from the hearts of men. The Pope’s latest Encyclical is yet further evidence of this naturalist agenda within the Church. It is not Covid-19 Catholics should be concerned about, it’s this Modernist/Masonic poison that has been injected straight into the veins of Mother Church by those who know her best.

        For the Covid-19 scam to succeed, the enemies of God had to get the Church’s hierarchy on message. These treacherous Churchmen have duly obliged and now the reign of Antichrist is rapidly manifesting all around the world in all its vile ugliness and brutality.

        Thank you for your kind comments, you are most welcome.

        As regards the Nurse who was told by the Optician that she may not be seen if she did not wear a mask, she did contact the Shop in question again and informed them of her rights. It is also a good idea to look at the Company’s Web-Site as this particular Optician one states about “wearing a Mask, unless you are exempt”, which can also be quoted – use their own words against them! She also contacted the ‘Charity’s Shop’ complaint Department (the one that refused her entry because she did not sanitise her hands), did not make an official complaint as they agreed to resolve with in- house training and making reasonable adjustments if customers cannot use the sanitiser. I would also suggest that readers print out the Law, already published on this thread (kate Shemirani twitter page) so it can be used if challenged. Interestingly, these mini Hitler’s we are facing, do not realise we are fighting for their freedom!

        Anyway on a final note, we don’t have to ask for our freedom, we simply have to take it back, it is our basic right as human beings.

        One of the rules of governement is that shopkeepers and assistants are not to challenge customers for not wearning masks, failing to socially distance or rejecting sanitiser. If it concerns them that much then they are encouraged to contact the police, or rather the State Militia since it is no longer a force for justice and law.

        I have only once been told I could not enter a shop, a pharmacy, because I didn’t have a mask on. I reminded the staff of the government rule and invited them to call the police. Never had a problem with them since!

        My brother received his letter of redundancy today in which his employer deeply regrets the decision he has been forced to make but says the industry in general, and his business in particular, has been decimated by the Covid-19 restrictions. These government criminals must be exposed and stand trial for what they have done to the economy, not to mention the mental health of the nation. There is no doubt in my mind now that the media is deliberately operating as a criminal element in this as well, all information I have sent them on national and international interest having been utterly silenced. It’s just not normal behaviour.

        What we need now is a popular peaceful uprising to take back our freedom and bring the evil criminality of this evil cabal of politicians, mdeia moguls, pseudo scientists and others to justice at a Neuremburg II-type public trial. This must never again be allowed to happen.

      I echo Francescomarta’s assessment of your post, and thank God you are on this blog!

      I was especially struck by your [irrefutably accurate] comparison of the Scottish Church to the Chinese Patriotic Association as a front for the state. I think that comparison applies to the Church in England and Ireland as well. These clergy should not be wearing clerical vestments, they should be wearing scarlet “A’s” – A for apostate.

      In fact, to take it a step further, I’d say the Vatican has become a front for the NWO since the election of Francis, not only affirming and promoting its ideological poisons but participating neck-deep in its financial and moral corruption as well.

    Now the evil World Health Organisation is getting worried because the wicked crime against humanity is beginning to get exposed. The man in this interview criticised the UK in March for not locking down earlier. Listen to what he’s saying now. He and his partners in crime must be getting rattled!

    The agenda that FR Keevins is complicit in is leading to Police tyranny that would have been unimaginable just a year ago. I expect eventually those who will not take the vaccine will encounter something similar if they try to leave the house. I must warn commentators that a few F bombs can be heard in the following video clip.

      A few “F” bombs? Nothing like what they’d have heard from me, be assured.

      Utterly shocking. That policeman MUST end up in prison. For a very long time. And the girl given thousands in compensation.

      Australia seems to be far and away the worst place on earth, right now.

    That is utterly shocking, I cannot believe the world is watching this kind of State-sponsored police criminality and saying nothing. Just shows how quickly the world can deteriorate into barbarism while most look on in approval. Seems lessons from history are never learned.

    For additional support and information for anyone else who is threatened with “no mask no sacraments” by a Catholic Priest like FR Keevins, or is discriminated in shops and public transport, there is good advice from the following link.

    Meanwhile as the Government controlled media pushes the Covid 1984 scare stories, a ‘whistle blower’ Chief Science Officer for Pfizer Says “Second Wave” Faked on False-Positive COVID Tests, “Pandemic Is Over.” Someone should tell the Bishops of Scotland to wake up!

    Dear Editor

    As I read this article I am watching the Gospel of John on YouTube and I am at the part where Jesus is driving out the people and money changers from the temple. If we thought that was bad enough then just think of the horror and sacrilege before his eyes if he comes back to earth now! His church in crisis, his sheperds in fear, his sheep in confusion and the order of the holy mass totally distorted! It beggars belief that we have allowed this to happen. If you haven’t done so already you must read the phrophesies of Our Lady of good Success. These phrophesies have been kept for this generation because we are in the times revealed to mother Mariana de Jesus Torres. All is revealed about what we are living in today. We must be ready for worse abominations to happen to our Catholic faith and we must be united in our faith. How do we do this? Recite the holy rosary daily, fast on Wednesday and Friday, monthly confession, the holy eucharist and reading the bible. These are the 5 stones Our Lady of Medugorje recommends to fight our Goliath. I also recommend you read up on the purple scapular of benediction and protection given to the prophetess Marie-julie Jahenny kept for these times too! We need to wake up and see what is happening on a global capacity. Keep your garments white and oil in your lamp. God bless you all

    Editor: Julie, we have featured the prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success on this blog and in our newsletter more than once, just as we have fairly frequently exposed the fraud of Medjugorje. For example and again here

    We do not promote unapproved apparitions here. Both Fatima and Our Lady of Good Success are approved apparitions – and unequivocally rightly so, given that in both cases, we are now living through the events prophesied. Please do not try to argue any case for Medjugorje – it won’t be published here. Thank you.

    My friend who attends the Edinburgh chapel tells me that the priest there is obeying the diktat from comrade Nicola! It seems he is afraid of being fined £10K and therefore has imposed the 50 attendees rule with a person counting numbers entering church, although there aren’t usually over 50 attending anyway. Hard to believe really, especially of a society priest.

    In contrast to that faithless position there are some very courageous diocesan priests out there. At my sister’s parish, the PP has said several Masses every day from the get go. He visited the sick, buried the dead, heard Confessions, said outdoor Masses and is even learning to say the TLM. All this was / is carried out without fuss and he seems to be simply taking the chance, for the benefit of his flock, that he won’t be reported to either the police or the bishop! May God bless him, and He will.

    I wonder if Fr Keevins will be angered at the news that his parishioner, Margaret Ferrier SNP MP is not having any police action taken against her despite her taking the train from London to Scotland after testing positive for the virus

    Or is it one rule for those who want to go to confession not wearing a mask, like Martin, and the political class types who are allowed to do their own thing? There’s now been a string of them breaking the rules and nothing happens to them. Yet the rest of us face fines of thousands of pounds, including people who have lost their jobs or are in danger of losing their jobs due to the reckless government policies controlling our every day lives. .

    Ferrier is a digrace and she should be at the very least handing over her pay cheque to some poor family living from hand to mouth If I was a constituent of hers, I’d be demanding her resignation and I definitely wouldn’t be voting for her again, ever.

    This article from titled – New Irish law banning gatherings threaten prison for priests who say Mass. What has an Irish law have to do with Scotland, you may ask. I wonder if this could be a possibility here in Scotland and further afield.

    In the article is says: “The last time priests faced such a penalty for saying Mass was when Catholics were under bloody persecution from a protestant country”.

    The following shocking report is from Lifesitenews – my email to the PP follows although I could only copy a highly edited part of it to Cardinal Cupich, due to their word limit … The contact details are given at the end of the report, if anyone else wishes to contact this priest – who is another Father Keevins (I’ve also post this on the “Brain Damage” thread as well, for the record…)

    Dear Father Northbrook, (error – it should be Fr. Gustafson. Apologies for my carelessness.)

    I am scandalised at the way the Church in general is acting like an arm of the State in this Covid “crisis” – some crisis when almost 100% of those infected recover and those who do not are the very elderly with underlying conditions. Clearly, this is a contrived crisis – a Coronavirus which is being used for political purposes. It is being used, in fact, to control us, and change our way of life; indeed, what we are seeing is the unfolding of the Fatima prophecy that Communism – a totalitarian form of governance – would take hold across the world

    Your treatment of a woman who, like myself, refuses to wear a mask, refuses to go along with this removal of our personal and religious freedom, is utterly disgraceful and not only disgraceful because you have failed to act as a priest and taken on the role, instead, of a policeman, an arm of the State, but because it reveals your ignorance of the uselessness of masks. The World Health Organisation recently admitted that it reversed its policy of not recommending masks only as a result of political lobbying, not because they suddenly thought masks effective. Dr Fauci said at the outset, if people want to wear masks because it makes them feel better, that’s fine, but there is no need.

    Priests, of all people, should not be acting in the faithless, fearful fashion typical of the pagan world. You are giving a scandalous counter-witness to the world, for which you will answer to God one day. The effete response of contemporary priests in the USA and in my home land of Scotland, stands in stark contrast to the brave saints of the middle ages when priests bathed the sores of those afflicted by a real plague and administered the sacraments to the dying. What a contrast!

    On the matter of mask wearing – these are not only useless in the prevention of spreading any virus, but they can be highly dangerous. Brain damage resulting is irreversible as this linked article by a neuro-physician explains:

    There is also a link to a video-presentation by a lawyer who details the facts about this virus, warning of legal prosecutions to come for all those who have perpetrated this “crime against humanity” – interestingly, the same charge laid by the above neuro-physician to those insisting on the wearing of face masks. Someday, all those who have persecuted whole populations by enforcing these bad laws to terrorise us will be called to account. That any priest is part of this terrorism is utterly disgraceful.

    I ask that you apologise profusely to Colette O’Regan for your abusive treatment towards her which is, to say the least, a grave lack of pastoral care. She is right to point out that it is only mortal sin which prohibits us from receiving Holy Communion – not any priest’s political views.

    I will be copying this email to Cardinal Cupich via the form provided on the diocesan website although even over here in Scotland, your archbishop’s reputation has gone before him and I do not expect anything from him. That he is unlikely to do his duty, however, does not mean that I am permitted to neglect mine, which is to speak out against attacks on the Faith and against such injustice as you are perpetrating on Mrs O’Regan.

    Perhaps the links I have included in this message will enable you to reassess your position.

    Signed… Ends.

      One slight error in your letter – you have addressed it to “Fr. Northbrook”. Easy mistake to make but Northbrook is the town and the priest is Fr. Gustafson. Doesn’t really matter, he’ll get the message.

      Here’s my response to this faithless priest:

      Dear Fr. Gustafson,

      I read on Lifesitenews of your abuse of priestly office in the matter of a certain Mrs. O’Regan and her refusal to be subjected to the new face mask tyranny.

      You may or may not be aware that a German neurologist has recently come out and begged governments to stop enforcing the wearing of these hellish implements, stating that in her expert opinion of more than 30 years in the field of neurology they are doing immense damage to the brain by restricting oxygen to brain cells. She warns that some years from now there will be a huge exponential increase in dementia and other brain-related illnesses as a result.

      Though very worrying for the population in general, this dire prediction is as nothing compared to what you and other so-called servants of God are doing to immortal souls. Like modern-day Pharisees you are men absent of supernatural faith who “strain on a gnat while swallowing a camel”.

      While subordinating the supernatural mission of the Church to the inferior authority of the State, unheard of in Church history and contrary to Church teaching, you show yourselves for the worldly men you are – more terrified by a disease of the body that is on a par with a bad seasonal flu than with the disease of sin that kills souls. How often we see this evidenced today in prelates and clerics who support the apostate Joe Biden for President thereby confirming that they are more Cultural Marxists than Catholics. It’s a shocking truth manifesting the world over and absolutely consistent with the prophecies of Our Lady, both Quito and Fatima, concerning a great loss of faith in the Church from the top down in this time of “diabolic disorientation”.

      Like Mrs. O’Regan I have also experienced first hand the scandal of a priest with no faith, one who has turned the House of God, a House of Faith, into a house of fear. Here is a link to the article I wrote in response on the “Catholic Truth Scotland” blog to alert other Catholics to avoid such priests as they would avoid a plague

      I hope you will seriously reflect on your words and actions relating to Mrs. O’Regan and that God will grant you the grace to realise that your moral reasoning in the matter is seriously skewed, not in the least consistent with the eternal law and your sole duty in this world to sanctify and save souls.

      Sincerely In Jesus & Mary
