Catholic Bishops of Canada, The Virgin Mother Pleads: "First Honour My Son"

The effrontery of Canada's Catholic Bishops is truly stunning! For decades they dismantled the substance of the Moral Law of Christ's Catholic Church and dumbed down everyday Catholics to the point of being unaware of sin. Now, when they realize our nation might face serious challenges, instead of repentance and reform, their magic cure is a re-consecration of Canada to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

I was outside Notre Dame Cathedral-Basilica in Ottawa with my signs when the Catholic Bishops re-consecrated Canada to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on September 26, 2017. If it had been possible, this is the message I would have liked to shout out yesterday, in addition to holding signs.

Fellow Catholics,

Canada was first consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1947 by the Catholic Bishops of Canada. Less than twenty years later the same Catholic Bishops took a hatchet to their Master’s teaching when they declared contraception was not a matter of Canada’s common good but simply one of many moral teachings of the Catholic Church. Canada has never recovered from that devastating act of betrayal. Our nation has since been plunged into the quicksand of moral relativity, dying a slow death from the many evils which soon overtook us through the privatization of contraception, divorce and abortion and the subsequent rise of homosexuality, same sex “marriage” and euthanasia.

So did the Virgin fail us? Was the first consecration of Canada to the Immaculate Heart of Mary a failure which now needs a refreshing, a recharging of the batteries, so that Canada might at last be noticed by the Mother of God and saved from its bleak future? Or do the Bishops feel driven, through desperation or maybe a guilty conscience, to invent the latest greatest cure-all for Canada’s sick society?

No, the Blessed Virgin Mary did not fail Canada since the first consecration of 1947. Nor will she ever fail us. In fact, there can be no doubt that thanks to her intercession for the last seventy years God`s hand of judgment against this wicked nation has largely been stayed. Canada might otherwise have collapsed under the weight and guilt of four million aborted children’s corpses, or balkanized politically due to disunity caused by the grave state of immorality, faithlessness and apostasy.

No, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will always prevail. But calling upon her for help and intercession is not a substitute for the obedience of Bishops. It is always appropriate to honour our Lady and acknowledge her miraculous role in our salvation but I say again: Calling upon the Virgin Mother of God is not a substitute for the obedience of Bishops, regardless of how many times they might consecrate Canada to her Immaculate Heart. Always the Blessed Virgin has made clear her message down through the ages to all servants of the Lord Jesus Christ:

“FIRST honour my Son. Do whatever He tells you.”

But, even God’s patience is known to wane over time and, when provoked, mothers can also speak with stinging criticism, especially in defense of son or daughter.

“FIRST honour my Son. Christ my Son instituted laws in His Church to prevent unworthy sinners from desecrating His Body and Blood. Yet for more than 50 years Canada has been plunged into a confused, moral abyss because my Son is regularly handed over to His enemies in an unholy communion. Why do the Bishops, the Successors of my Son’s Apostles, pick and choose which laws and doctrines of the Church they will obey? Why do they fail to discipline wayward, influential Catholics? As I have warned in many other places and times: the work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church, attacking first consecrated souls and luring them to accept compromises and errors. Such errors eventually force bishops to oppose bishops. Now I beg Canadian Catholics to pray especially for bishops and priests and for reparation before the Blessed Sacrament. These same Bishops now wish to consecrate Canada once again to my Immaculate Heart and I say to them again: Catholic Bishops, first learn to obey my Son and the laws of the Church for which He gave His life!”

Such a scolding from Our Heavenly Mother would, sadly, be puzzling to a great many Catholics. But just weeks ago we witnessed in Montreal the greatest scandal to take place in Canada’s recent history—made all the worse because it was televised live on national TV. Yet Church leaders and media alike have been completely silent. At a high Mass at Notre Dame Basilica in the midst of gala celebrations for the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montreal, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a renegade Catholic, shared in Eucharistic Holy Communion. Trudeau defies the law of Christ pertaining to practically every social evil currently plaguing Canada, including abortion, contraception, divorce, euthanasia, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and gender theory. Nevertheless, he stepped forward to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ and was enabled in his act of sacrilege by none other than an Archbishop, His Excellency Christian Lépine, a Bishop who later justified his scandalous behaviour by characterizing it as a “gesture of hope.”

Impossible! The warning from Holy Scripture is clear:
Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord… For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. 1 Corinthians 11:27, 29
Since that blasphemous moment in Montreal not one of the more than 30 influential Bishops and 400 priests present, including Archbishop Prendergast, has spoken up to condemn the evil perpetrated at that event or to defend the teaching of Christ. By all appearances these consecrated men fear the wrath of men more than the wrath of God. The Catholic Church prescribes for public sinners such as Justin Trudeau the application of Canon Law No. 915, which mandates the denial of Holy Communion as a measure to help save the sinner’s soul and also as a measure to prevent the affected community being scandalized. Note that the adherence to Canon Law is not an option for Bishops; in fact they are sworn to uphold both Church law and doctrine. Neither is it a matter of prudential judgment as some Bishops claim. Once the conditions of the law are met, the Bishop is required to act. Failure to act is disobedience to Christ Himself.

Archbishop Prendergast, do your duty to God: Discipline Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in accord with the law of Christ that his soul might be saved and the tide of evil stemmed in this great land of Canada.

Ottawa’s Archbishop is considered by many to be one of Canada’s finest Bishops. Perhaps he is, but he may also be considered a reckless Bishop as well. Christ Himself said that to whom much is given much is required. The Archbishop has been given a station of tremendous influence in our nation’s capital. Why then has he first equivocated, then ignored, the remedy proposed by Christ and His Church to deal with the dangerous behaviour of Canada’s #1 public sinner, Justin Trudeau?

Since arriving in Ottawa in 2007 the Archbishop could practically see from his front yard the rise to political prominence of Justin Trudeau and all the scandal surrounding this renegade Catholic’s denial of Church teaching. As Trudeau’s Bishop, he refused to confront Trudeau’s demon actions and to properly address the scandal in a timely fashion in accordance with Church law. Had he done so in the earliest stages, the Archbishop might have helped to save Trudeau’s soul. At the very least early action would have publicly signaled to Canada the true nature of Trudeau’s immoral character and devilish mindset. Such exposure might well have inhibited his rise to power and very possibly prevented his election to the most powerful office in the nation.

Tragically then it must be acknowledged that Archbishop Prendergast is complicit in the rise of great evil in our land because he refused to employ the Church's remedy for public sinners. There is no getting around it, the Archbishop defied Church law and spurned Christ. And, indirectly, he has endangered all of Canada and subjected even other nations to the demonic influence of Trudeau’s evils. Yes, Prime Minister Trudeau even sponsors contraception and abortion overseas using millions of dollars of Canadian taxpayer’s money.

Archbishop Prendergast was aware that PM Trudeau would be attending—and speaking—at the commemorative Mass in Montreal several weeks ago. If Trudeau had been contacted and informed it would have been a simple matter to ensure the Prime Minister did not present for Holy Communion. Had the PM ignored such a warning, those who were Ministers of Holy Communion, including Archbishop Lépine, could have readied themselves to deny Holy Communion should Trudeau step forward. Bottom line: Had the Bishops been joined heart and mind to Christ the scandal could have been averted.

The Bishops commemorate 150 years of Canadian Confederation but what exactly are we celebrating in this once great nation of ours? What does God see when His gaze fixes on Canada? 50 years of unrestricted legal killing of unborn children, as many as 4 million lives destroyed by therapeutic abortions due to a criminal code that is blind to abortion; A nation addicted to the unnatural sexual appetite of sodomy, with perhaps 90-95% of the population practicing or supporting contraception and another huge percentage cheering on the drive to fully normalize homosexual relationships; A Supreme Court which has somehow determined from our Charter of Rights that Canadians possess a right also to euthanasia, or the more polite phrase, M-A-I-D (medical aid in dying).

What else does God see? One of the first Western nations to legally assault God’s divine plan of marriage and legitimize so called “same sex” marriage; And now these days we see unfolding in Canada Satan’s latest attack on God’s truth, that of gender ideology. Already it has started in our schools to twist the minds of our youngest children and only days ago, it was given protections under law by PM Trudeau; now the state has free reign to silence its critics and corrupt our society. On Canada Day 2017, rather than a celebration, shouldn’t we be preparing a national day of mourning and humiliation before the Lord?

The hour is late. There can be no further delay. Archbishop Prendergast, do your duty to God: Discipline Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in accord with the law of Christ that his soul might be saved and the scandal redressed.

But the evil extends far beyond Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In fact, since the first consecration in 1947, Canada’s Bishops have fostered an altogether different religion in Canada and the gambit has been swallowed hook, line and sinker. Few will acknowledge this devastating reality. Why was it that no Catholic in Canada traveled to Montreal to attend and to safeguard, if warranted, the Holy Eucharist from desecration by the Prime Minister? Why did no Catholic prepare himself, at just the correct moment, to suddenly stand from the balcony and shout out loudly, "Sacrilege! Sacrilege! Sacrilege! Justin Trudeau is a public sinner! He must be denied Holy Communion in accordance with Canon 915! A pox upon any clergyman in this building who would dare to commit sacrilege by handing over the Body and Blood of Jesus to one of His enemies!"

After you've meditated upon that mystery, then consider that the Montreal Basilica, which holds thousands of persons, had a large crowd in attendance, many of whom were the most influential clergy and laypeople of Canada. Not one of the thousands were distressed sufficiently to rise from their seats when Trudeau stepped forward for Holy Communion or to make a public comment afterwards to protest the desecration that took place that day. Yes, indeed, the counterfeit, pseudo-catholic Church sponsored by Canada’s Catholic Bishops for decades, has corrupted the great majority of observant Catholics.

Fellow Canadians, a watershed moment recently occurred in the history of Catholic Canada. The leaders of Christ's Catholic Church chose sacrilege over duty and calling. A few faithful Catholics in Canada might have held to a slim hope that the future of Catholicism in our nation had taken a turn for the better over the last ten or twenty years thanks to what some claimed to be a revived clergy and hierarchy. But any such hopes have been altogether dashed. The future for Canada can only be bleaker.


I will explain again why I say the Pastors and Bishops of Canada have blood upon their hands.

The prophet Ezekiel declared:
If... you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked man from his way, he (the wicked man) shall die for his guilt, but I will hold you responsible for his death.
Along with many other Catholics, I am greatly distressed by the ongoing and virtual silence of too many Bishops on the subject of legalized child-killing in Canada. I have plead with the Bishops to take every necessary step to confront the demon of abortion in Canada which has claimed over four million unborn victims. In addition I am very troubled by the near total neglect by Bishops and their priests to teach and reinforce to those under their spiritual care the Moral Law of God, as defined by the Catholic Church in her official teachings. These two striking failures have taken a dramatic toll on Canadian society, paving the way for a multitude of present day evils.

Lament, ye Catholics for the Wholesale Desecration of the Eucharist.

In evaluating the factors contributing to the tragedy of legalized child-killing in our nation, special notice must be taken of the desecration of the Eucharist by obstinate, dissenting Catholics living in grave sin. This widespread and large-scale practice counts as the single greatest contributing factor to Canada’s moral descent and disrespect for human life. It would be impossible indeed to account for such desecration without acknowledging the neglect and/or indifference of too many Bishops because, in fact, the oversight of the Eucharist is entrusted entirely to the Successors of the Apostles. How is it possible to foster respect for human life when disrespect for God Himself, through the Body and Blood of Christ, is not only tolerated but modeled at every Mass?

This sacrilege of handing over Jesus to His enemies, through Holy Communion, is no less a crime today than when it was first perpetrated by Pilate two thousand years ago. The Scriptures warn, “For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.” Furthermore, the Christian “cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.” Communion with Christ and communion with devils cannot be had at once. Christians, who by association, sympathies, and actions participate in devilish strategies that destroy life, family and the common good, cannot participate in Holy Communion. Unless the Holy Scriptures are lying, the implications of this truth are clear and astounding: No such wholesale sacrilegious Holy Communion could take place unless great numbers of Bishops sympathize, knowingly or unknowingly, with the work of demons!

Shockingly then, just as “pro-choice” Pontius Pilate, who was “personally opposed,” nevertheless delivered Jesus over to His enemies, the Bishops of Canada have dispensed the Body and Blood of Jesus to any and all Catholics in the Communion line, even though it is a well-known fact that as many as 90% of Catholics reject the authority and certain crucial teachings of His Church in Canada. The truly faithful Catholics have been scandalized and demoralized for decades by this officially sanctioned sacrilege.

Yes, mourn and weep, fellow Catholics: A Pseudo-Catholic Culture Flourishes in Canada.

The result of this abomination is a flourishing pseudo-catholic culture—one based not upon the mystery of the Eucharist but upon the “magic” of the Eucharist. Yes, be shocked, but not because I described it as magic. I do not defame the Eucharist. It is the Bishops who defame the Holy Eucharist. Thanks to the negligence, or perhaps simply the spiritual darkness, of Canada’s Bishops, regardless of the moral conduct or spiritual disposition of vast numbers of renegade Catholics, attendance at Mass and mere reception of Holy Communion is assumed to magically confer absolution for even grave sins and to satisfy all of God’s significant imperatives for the Catholic.

This is the horrific, practical outcome of the Bishops’ negligence and it bears repeating: Regardless of the moral conduct or spiritual disposition of vast numbers of renegade Catholics, attendance at Mass and mere reception of Holy Communion is assumed to magically confer absolution for even grave sins and to satisfy all of God’s significant imperatives for the Catholic.

Does not the recent public and sacrilegious Holy Communion offered to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prove this very claim?

This grave misrepresentation of the Catholic faith not only dishonors faithful Catholics but scandalizes the entire Christian community in Canada, many of whom are forced to conclude that Catholicism is but another cultish enemy of the true Christian faith.

The Bishops are well aware that, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, those Catholics who deny Church teaching on the intrinsic evils of contraception, abortion and sodomitic relations as well as the mortal sins of masturbation, co-habitation, fornication, pornography, adultery and divorce disqualify themselves from partaking in the Holy Eucharist. Without first giving evidence in Confession of genuine repentance followed by absolution, they may not receive the Body and Blood of Christ. Despite such explicit teaching, not only inordinate numbers of average Catholics condemn themselves through sacrilegious Communion but significant numbers of openly dissenting priests, religious, theologians, and professors do so as well. These leaders have been permitted to further corrupt the faithful by disparaging the Church’s doctrine on priestly celibacy, women’s ordination, same sex “marriage,” and other non-negotiables of the faith, all without public rebuke by the Bishops.

The dissent—if not outright heresy—from Rome’s teaching by so many Bishops themselves in regard to Catholic sexual ethics, particularly contraception, with its consequent immoral living by millions of Catholics, is bringing Canada to the brink of demographic and cultural collapse. The most egregious example of such rebellion surfaced in the Church’s last encyclical on contraception, "Humanae Vitae" in July 1968, wherein the Church reinforced its prohibition of contraception as a moral absolute. However, the Canadian bishops in their “Winnipeg Statement” of September 1968 subtly denied the truth of that encyclical. In effect their statement affirmed that there are circumstances in which fornication and adultery and sodomy are legitimate. Through sophistry, the Winnipeg Statement planted the seeds of destruction of the Canadian Catholic Church. The Bishops have dismantled chastity, a virtue that has been all but wiped off the Canadian landscape.

Shouldn’t the Bishops be warning all obstinate unrepentant Catholics that neither baptism nor the Eucharist will save them? Again, according to the Catholic Catechism, to die in mortal sin without repenting and accepting God’s merciful love is to be separated forever from Him in Hell. The Bishops know these things but their neglect or unbelief betrays them since they refuse to teach and to warn Catholics. Therefore they corrupt the faith and prove themselves not shepherds but wolves, risking the eternal salvation of millions of Canadian Catholics. The result of their distorted, devilish thinking is a collapse in the integrity of the Canadian Catholic community as a whole. An entire generation of Catholics is confused about the true means of obtaining God’s grace. Thus have the Bishops created a parallel Church composed of millions of professing Catholics whose lives day in and day out are characterized by intrinsically evil behaviours yet whose shepherds purposely shield them from the truth.

How was it that Pope Emeritus Benedict tried to set Canadian Bishops on a new path?

Which habits have the Bishops determined to change in light of Pope Benedict’s warning in October 2006? None, it would seem. In no uncertain terms, the Pope tackled the failure of Bishops to address the moral problems of Canada, specifically pointing to homosexual “marriage” and abortion and to the extreme split between the Gospel and culture, strongly evidenced by the exclusion of God in the political realm. The Pope was warning that Canadian society would continue to go amuck “in the most disturbing of ways,” through neglect of the truth and of discipline.

By continuing the unscriptural and heretical practice of granting Holy Communion to those who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, the Bishops have refused to heed Pope Benedict’s admonition. They have failed to take due diligence in defending the Holy Eucharist from sacrilege by the ordinary renegade Catholic.

The Pope’s comments politely and subtly pointed to a pervasive counterfeit culture which is supported by these sacrilegious communions and the immoral lifestyles of Catholics living in grave sin. Multitudes of such corrupted Catholics said to be “in good standing with their Church” impact every strata of Canadian society, including politics and the courts, and further degrade it with their anti-God and anti-life attitudes. Politicians, particularly pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Catholic Prime Ministers, draw special attention and indeed are capable of shocking degrees of scandal but it is the average uncatechized Catholic voter, in step with the spiritual blindness and befuddlement of Canada’s Bishops, who empowers these “pro-choice” legislators and killers of the Unborn.

Why is it that Bishops Have Failed to Mobilize the Catholic Voting Bloc?

There is perhaps no greater example of the dereliction of duty by Bishops to halt the killing of preborn children in Canada than the failure to mobilize the Catholic voting bloc by means of a strong spiritual formation which generates an authentic Catholic conscience. Legal protection for unborn children necessitates a political, legislative solution, a fact evident to even the least politically savvy of Canadians. Roman Catholic Bishops in Canada exercise moral authority over a formidable voting bloc of nearly 10 million Catholics and yet after more than forty years of legalized child killing in Canada there is no indication whatever that Catholics have been guided by the Bishops to effect this political change. It could be accomplished through the simplest of voting strategies, one solidly founded not on partisan politics but on basic moral principles.

Why must it fall to other groups to mobilize the Christians of Canada to vote effectively on behalf of preborn children? Surely if the Bishops had a will to stop the child killing in Canada a focused and comprehensive nation-wide, diocesan wide, strategy to engage every Catholic of voting age to cast a vote for legal protection of the Unborn would have yielded long ago a complete halt to the killing. God have mercy on the Bishops for their failure in this most practical of all ways to end the holocaust of the Unborn. Their inaction for decades makes them culpable in the deaths of millions of unborn children.

What then are the Political Consequences of the Counterfeit Catholic Culture?

Out of Canada’s counterfeit Catholic culture has emerged political devils such as Catholic Prime Ministers Trudeau, Chretien, and Paul Martin. Catholic Bishops were clearly in a compromised, weakened state when, in 1969, they permitted Catholic Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and Catholic Justice Minister John Turner to foist the triad of legal contraception, abortion and homosexuality upon Canada, along with the liberalization of divorce laws.

Up until PM Stephen Harper’s election in 2006, Catholic Prime Ministers had managed the affairs of Canada for 38 years (except for a five month break). Every one of them without exception has flouted Catholic teaching on sexuality through their pro-contraception, pro-abortion, pro-sodomy agendas. And every one of them considered themselves good Catholics and regularly presented themselves for Holy Communion. During that 38 year reign of social devastation and spiritual ruin the Catholic Bishops failed to take steps to deal with this epic scandal. Despite the fierce defiance of Catholic teaching exhibited by the Prime Ministers there is no record of even one single occasion when a Catholic PM was denied Holy Communion. And now we have a new Catholic PM, Justin Trudeau, who likewise claims to be a serious Catholic but is probably the most strident pro-abortion PM ever.

Canada’s Bishops failed to deal with the grave scandal caused by Paul Martin, one of Canada’s recent pro-abortion, pro-sodomy Catholic PM’s, defeated in the 2006 election, who spearheaded same sex marriage in Canada and vehemently proclaimed his government’s commitment to “a woman’s right to choose” without restrictions. His Bishop, the Bishop of Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, dismissed any possibility of discipline for Martin, claiming that the PM was a “faithful member of my cathedral parish.” Ottawa’s current Archbishop Prendergast has repeatedly refused to employ Canon 915, the Church’s prescription for discipline of renegade Justin Trudeau’s scandalous statements and actions.

Profound failures such as this by the Bishops of Canada blur the line between that which is evil and that which is good and sustain the “extreme split between the Gospel and culture, strongly evidenced by the exclusion of God in the political realm” lamented by Pope Emeritus Benedict. How can such a caricature of apostolic leadership be described as anything other than the “blind leading the blind?”

Bishops Urgently Need to Implement Guidelines Provided to them by Rome.

Two sets of guidelines authored by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, later Benedict XVI, if diligently and universally honoured by the Bishops of Canada, would decidedly impact the moral climate of Canada and immediately set Canada on a path to rescuing the Unborn and reviving respect for the moral law of God.

In a 2004 letter to the American Bishops entitled appropriately “Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion” then-Cardinal Ratzinger said that those Catholics who continue to obstinately reject Church teachings must be denied Communion. He cited Canon 915 and other church documents to support this position.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in 2003, published “The Participation of Catholics in Political Life” which was directed to Catholic Bishops, Catholic politicians and all lay members of the faithful called to participate in the political life of democratic societies. Principles contained in this guide urgently need application in Canada but are constantly ignored by the Bishops.

Bishops Need to Call for a National Fast and Penance.

Much is made these days in Catholic circles of initiatives such as the “New Evangelization” and “Social Justice.” However, truly worthwhile Catholic endeavours such as these can never see the blessing of God until the fundamental errors and injustices of the Bishops are resolved. Celebrations like the 2008 International Congress in Quebec City by the Bishops with the theme “The Eucharist, gift of God for the life of the world” ought to instead be a call for a national fast whose primary purpose is repentance and conversion of Canada’s Catholic population and their leaders. God desires first of all obedience from His Bishops, certainly not festivals, celebration and song at such a time of crisis as we face. Ironically, God’s gift of life is also the Unborn…who will pay with their life for the ongoing desecration of the Eucharist.

It is past time for a Congress that enjoins Catholics throughout Canada to instead put on sack cloth and ashes, seeking repentance and forgiveness for the disobedience of the Bishops and the profanation of the Holy Eucharist.

Every day the Bishops delay, the souls of Catholics entrapped in the darkness of a false religious culture remain in great danger of eternal damnation and every day the Bishops delay, a further 300 preborn Canadians perish. Their silent scream continues to daily torment those whose Christian conscience remains unfettered by the deceptions of demons.

The prophet Amos declared:
I hate, I despise your festivals -- and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. Even though you offer me your burnt offerings, and grain offerings, I will not accept them; and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look upon. Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps. But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
