Lockdown: Winter of Discontent Ahead…

Lockdown: Winter of Discontent Ahead…

We know Patrick Christys is right – we’re going to be locked down again. The only question is, how many people will obey this time around?

Will the bishops close down the churches again? And if so, will the priests obey?  I recently witnessed one “traditional leaning” priest in the archdiocese of Glasgow who is clearly terrified of becoming infected.  Despite the supposed lifting of restrictions, his parish continues to register attendees, and I  watched, horrified, as he thoroughly scrubbed his hands prior to distributing Holy Communion – after Mass.  As one person said to me later, “that priest is doing evil.”  That is, he is contributing to The Big Lie that Covid is a deadly virus and that the removal of our freedoms is both legitimate and essential. Nobody should be contributing to this evil phony pandemic at all. Which reminds me – I hope  they don’t try to contact me on the phone number I registered in order to attend that parish Mass.  Oh, and, for the record, all things considered, I did not join the procession of the presumed “unclean” to receive Communion, and I’ve now added that parish to my “don’t darken the doorstep ever again” list, until the priest reverses his support for the unlawful demands of the State over the rights of Christ the King. There are good souls who continue to attend but who are equally appalled at the faithlessness on display, so while I sympathise with their dilemma, I urge them not to support that parish in any way, during this transition into full-blown atheistic Communism.

I remain hopeful that the traditional churches (SSPX)  will not conform again, even minimally, to the unlawful intrusion of Government into our spiritual and religious lives.  A lot of people are losing Faith having watched the apostasy of priests and bishops on full display during the previous national lockdown, and, as I witnessed myself fairly recently, still (completely unnecessarily) on display, as mentioned above. Any more such scandals, and truly irreparable damage will be caused to the faithful – and to the world at large – who know hypocrisy and Godlessness when they see it.

What is your opinion – will the churches conform to the inevitable forthcoming winter lockdown?  Will you?

    That’s an excellent summary of the situation by Patrick Christys. I agree that we are in for another lockdown and I’m dreading it.

    During the last full lockdown I was appalled at the way people were spying on one another, and I was afraid to look sideways in case I was reported to the police. I cancelled a planned visit from a niece of mine who was going to stay over, because I was unsure of the neighbours. Now I’m sure. They’d definitely report anyone breaking the rules, that I now know.

    As for that parish – I’d be avoiding it as well. What a shame that priests are so easily fooled by the propaganda.

    I could be wrong, and I don’t know about Scotland, but I think (at least I hope) England won’t go into full lockdown again, but we’ll probably see the full return of all the other palaver (limited amount of guests in your home, masks, distancing, hand gels etc in public places).

        I agree. Sturgeon is like the New Zealand PM, she went into lockdown after one case! They’re stupidly trying to eliminate the virus altogether, did you ever hear of anything so ridiculous. The way Sturgeon keeps on about rising cases, she’s preparing us for another lockdown, even thought she says she doesn’t want one. I don’t believe a word she says.

      You do surprise me because I think Boris and his two stooges (Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance) are making all the right noises to prepare us for another winter lockdown. We’ve already got the hand gel and masks and social distancing in place in Scotland, so we’ve not got far to go to get into the swing of another lockdown.

    I did mention once on this blog before, when we were in lockdown in England, at least round where I live, neighbours weren’t spying on each other – my neighbours got married and had a celebration over two days in their home to keep the numbers down but they were still over the allowed figure each day and no-one snitched on them. Good luck to them, that’s what I say. And as for the police – you just don’t see them any more, except for the occasional patrol car. I can’t remember the last time I saw any patrolling the streets on foot. Too busy investigating alleged ‘hate crimes’ on the internet. I also pick my mother up every week and bring her to my home for the day. But I don’t know if this was ‘breaking the rules’ during lockdown as she has been officially diagnosed with dementia and I think acting as a carer meant I was exempted, I’m not sure – but we were never challenged about it. I carried her official diagnosis papers all the time in case we were ever pulled over by the police, but it never happened.

      Never mind the internet – up here they’re too busy investigating hate crimes reported by members of families on one another, to bother trawling the internet. A scandalous new low made possible thanks to our latest piece of ridiculous SNP legislation

    It will not surprise me on the likelihood of another lockdown. I am asking myself the question – When will it be? And for how long the next lockdown be? I would not be surprised of indefinite lockdowns over the winter months in the years to come.

    Where I live, I am actively looking to move house because of the coercion to accept the current Covid vaccine, from where I currently live now.

    As for the churches, well I don’t think they’ll close again. The priest described in the intro sounds like a “scaredy cat” but I don’t think the bishops will make the mistake of going down that route again. They were humiliated by the legal victory won by the Protestant ministers who took the matter to judicial review. Individual priests like the “scaredy cat” will go on being terrified, and their parishes will suffer as a result, because God will not reward them but I don’t think the churches will close again, I really hope not.

    Without a doubt we’ll be in lockdown this winter, north and south of the border. All the chatter is pointing in that direction.

    I don’t think that we will have a lockdown per se. They will impose some tyrannical measures but not lockdowns as the people would not tolerate them. There are global resistance groups which just might win the day. Please God. Also, so many public figures such as Nigel Farage and Neil Oliver have said that they will not comply. So many people are simply ignoring the government guidelines and I meet them every day. The ones I feel so sorry for are the terrified souls, often the elderly, who think they are at imminent risk of dying. Our governments should be put on trial for this as it’s inhumane.

        Josephine, I don’t even LISTEN to what Boris, the adulterer and alley cat, says. I just think that they will be careful to keep the population compliant and another full blown lockdown would be a step too far. Look at what’s happening in Melbourne for example. They’ll think up some shenanigans no doubt but, if they awaken the comatosed giant, all hell will break loose.

        Crofterlady,

        A friend told me about the chaos in Melbourne, mentioning that an elderly woman of 79 was thrown to the ground by police and pepper sprayed in her face. I can’t find it on YouTube but it was mentioned on the John Bachman Show on Newsmax TV (USA) and, interestingly, the point was made that if the Australians hadn’t given up their equivalent of the US 2nd Amendment (the right to bear arms) this wouldn’t be happening to them. The scenes on the streets of Melbourne are totally shocking – I found the report below of particular interest… Daniel Whatsisname is a snake. Yet, some months ago I remember another reporter pointing to the many boards/flags of support for him in the area. As I’ve said all along, it’s really not the Government(s) to blame for this removal of our freedoms and blatant tyranny, it’s the idiotic people who support the tyrants. To quote Aldous Huxley in Brave New World: Most men and women grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution.

      It’s the elderly that surprises me most of all. Don’t they realise they’re at risk of dying anyway? We’re all going to die, and the elderly should be more aware of that than the rest of us. None of this makes any sense.

    Here’s Neil Oliver saying that he will NOT be locked down again. And I’m 200% with him; I said way back that we need to live our lives as we’ve always done and not co-operate with the stupid restrictions. And definitely not with any more lockdowns. Thankfully, more and more people are saying the same thing.

    Does that Wee Horrible Wummin still talk B.S. everyday on the Rotten BBC . I don’t know where I seen the Caption of Masked up People Talking to The Amish and it said .
    The Masked People to the Amish–” How many Covid Patients in your Hospital ” the Amish Reply was ” None . We don’t Have Television “.
    O and I see Horror Bergoglio has Put The Vatican on Lockdown ,for those who haven’t taken His Promoted Injections. He needn’t have bothered making that Statement ,as I don’t think Any Catholic worth their Salt would want to meet Bergoglio Anyhow . And I wouldn’t want to be seen around the Vatican in case I got a Bad Name . Am sure you know what I mean.
    As for Our Bishops they were useless the last time and I can’t see them being any different again. ED where do these Bishops get their Money From. Because I know in my Parish that if they Have to get a % of the N.O. Collections their onto Rice .
    Before the Good Bishop Toal stopped our Mass of Ages on a Sunday their were Probably 45
    outside my Own Parish who attended it . All put into the Collection Box and I know that at Least
    95% were all Notes . That’s a tidy Sum every week for the Good Bishop to loose and I Emailed Him saying so . Do you know if Bergoglio tops up these Bishops from His Chinese Payments, to make double sure they stay in Line.

    I don’t think we’ll get another lockdown, just a repeat of restrictions, just to keep us mindful that we are only existing with permission from the government.

    I also think I can guess the parish mentioned in the intro but since it’s not named, I’ll not say so either. I would just say that I am personally shocked that any priest would hold off Communion until after Mass and then go through the performance of hand-washing. The priest washing his hands is part of the official liturgy of the Mass, so there’s no need for that at all.

      I’m beginning to think you’re right, maybe there won’t be another lockdown as there was last year, but more restrictions and the more I think about it, the churches won’t close IMHO, but they will continue with restrictions. No wonder people prefer the livestream Masses. No leaving the house, no queue to get into the church, no registering, and no stupid hand gel, and the rest.

      It’s terrible that priests go along with the restrictions but part of me wants to sympathise with them, they’re so afraid, if not of the virus itself, of getting into bother with the law. We should pray for them to get some courage.

    There won’t be another full lockdown, at least I hope not, but if there is, I won’t keep to it. Enough is enough.

    I don’t think the bishops will close the churches either, but if they do, they will find the churches even emptier when they open up again. The people have been left ignorant for generations now, since the 60’s and they don’t know the faith so don’t realise that livestream Masses don’t fulfil the obligation and that they are denying themselves the grace of the Real Presence in Holy Communion by not attending Mass in person.

    The whole thing is a mess, both in ordinary society and in the Church, a real mess.

    How many times have I wished over the last few years that I could live without ‘the meeja’ spewing forth its daily dose of rancid garbage! What an infantilised and craven people we’ve become in a few generations. I’m an ould gent, crotchety and unvaccinated, who’s woken to find himself corralled with you good folks in one gigantic Bedlam. I cannot believe that the Catholic and CofE bishops missed such an open goal in the last lockdown. What an opportunity for them to preach the Crucified and Risen Lord Jesus; to call us to repentance and true conversion of heart; to give meaning to the darkness of human suffering and to proclaim boldly the Eternal Verities. Instead they shut the churches and had nothing worthwhile to offer a spiritually-famished people. Fools! They flunked it and should be defenestrated.

      That is exactly my thoughts – that the pope and bishops have missed a golden opportunity to show the truths of the faith to the world, especially the bit about the treatment of lepers. Instead they’ve been no different from the godless society around us. They’ll have to answer for this in the next world, of that I’m in no doubt.

    I think the worst part of this chastisement is that our leaders have become our enemies – and that goes for entirely too many clergy in the Church, as well. Meanwhile, they play by a different set of rules, or should I say the same old rules as before the scam, their bank accounts being filled by taxpayer and parishioner money, as well as from the oligarchs behind the curtain. Their faces are mask-free, they suffer no lockdowns, their bodies are not filled with spike proteins attacking their own internal organs…

      Victor the usual Scottish ,Your are Spot on again. Billy Gates is ( or was ) filmed saying He nor His ( am sometimes a Catholic Ex Wife Belinda) nor His 3 Adult Children hadn’t taken His Own $30Billion Injections as they didn’t want to in Billy’s Words ” To Jump the queue ” what a kind hearted Multi Multi Multi Billionaire , and so Humble with it . President Trump was the only So Called Top Politician who said what He was taking for the Chinese Disease and the Media said that He said to Drink Bleach. I even had an argument with my Brother over that ,as they’ll believe anything that the Rotten BBC says . Of course Trump did make Mistakes concerning these so called Vaccines ,but I believe He didn’t do so for personal Profit. Whereas I believe that Bergoglios Advertising of the Injections is for Profit.

      Also Bergoglios more or less taunting of Cardinal Burke about these Injections ,was a total disgrace, even for a Backstreet Bully like Him . He most certainly showed that He’s the kind of Man who would put the Boot in when your Lying on the ground. Do I believe that the Likes of Top New World Order Politicians have taken these Injections. No I don’t. If we know that their are better and safer options out there ,then surely they do. ( Wasn’t it very significant that in India the Delta Variant died a quick Death as soon as other Meds started to be used.) As you say they suffer no Lockdowns , no Poisons to their systems and they Rip us off just as most of them always have done. I cannot talk about the English Bishops as I haven’t read enough about them.
