We have been experiencing a lot of division in our country between friends, wives and husbands, brothers and sisters, extended families, social groups, companies, government institutions, and even churches. Almost overnight, the old boundaries which use to keep us comfortable and in our little silos have been blown up – whether they were social, political, moral, or religious – it’s all gone and so is the trust. And we think that the new division which now separates us is the Vaxx. When we approach friends and acquaintances who we have not heard from in some time, we are unsure on how to address them – are they a vaxx militant or not? It’s natural to think that the dividing line is the Vaxx itself, but that is not really the source of our division.
The dividing line here is whether our society believes in a person’s free exercise of their conscience which is the most basic and rudimentary freedom that mankind has. It’s what makes us human, and gives us a glimpse of the final dignity that awaits us in heaven.
If the answer to that question is the way our society is going, however, the answer to that question is **no**. Almost overnight, our society has abandoned what it used to guard zealously and instead has folded like a cheap tent. It no longer believes in protecting conscience rights, or even individual bodily autonomy which God gave us as individual stewards. Instead, conscience is out and a perverse form of the “common good” is in. Bodily autonomy is out and collective state control of it is in.
While the threat of COVID is real, the response has been nothing short of criminal – both in the draconian actions of governments and the wholescale ethical abandonment on how the virus should have been treated in infected patients. This abandonment has left a huge void which authorities have sought to fill up by denying the humanity of its own citizens and destroying their right to informed consent. They did this through fear and imposing the boot of a manufactured crisis on our necks.
But what is this new dividing line between people? From the unvaxxed side, it’s quite a revelation to have so much variety of people who would otherwise not associate with one another, and yet they are united in a common cause to protect the basic freedoms which are inalienable. Even many vaxxed Canadians – although perhaps only a minority of them – find it abhorrent that Canadian society has been separated like this. They reject government mandates and restrictions on people who cannot accept these vaxxines for very good reasons.
So what is going on here?
I think God is allowing this division to occur to sift out people who truly understand and appreciate what it means to be human, and those who don’t – a kind of “Tower of Babel” moment. There are those who claim they can “see” and yet are the ones who are truly blind (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIIH9hzHG3s).
A great sifting is happening here. There is a dividing line being drawn in the sand. The vaxxine is merely the sword which draws that line in the sand to separate and divide Canadians, but we must remember that it is the hand and the heart which moves the sword. The masks were a prelude to view each other with suspicion, and consider each other a threat. The vaxxine and its mandates merely codify this fearful fraud in law and bring to division which was already festering deep down in our souls. There are no misunderstandings or coincidences in this.
The vaxxine tyranny bearing down on us reveals what was already in our hearts: in some, hearts full of fear, possessing a profound naivete to man’s wickedness, and an idolatrous belief in unproven science; while in others, glowing hearts of stout faithfulness and an implacable confession in our human dignity and freedom with a firm resolve to accept any sacrifice which is demanded of us to witness to these truths.
When Judas gave up Our Blessed Lord, he did so for 30 pieces of silver. And the high priest gave him up for the Common Good. In 2000 years, nothing has changed as the lambs are still being sacrificed for the same reasons, but this time it's Big Pharma and Establishment High Priests.
Be at peace. Let the other side have their vaxxed-only football games whose food is catered by unvaxxed servers. The real “Hail Mary” pass is not found there, and neither is genuine freedom.

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn “‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law— a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ (Matthew 10:34-36)
