Your eminence, a lot of things do not make sense

EnglishItalianPortugueseSpanishGermanDutchFilipinoPolishChinese (Simplified)ArabicBengaliGreekTurkishKoreanJapanesePersianRomanian
Transcript of Video – Summary of Joe Volpe’s Article – Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>
“Your eminence, a lot of things do not make sense”, by the Honourable Joe Volpe, brings to light the disparity between the rights afforded religious institutions and commercial enterprises in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.  The Church has protested feebly to the severe restrictions, while big box stores, supported by the Provincial Cabinet, have been vociferous and unrelenting.  The result is that, while large chain stores and outlet malls are now permitted to be open, even crowded, churches and mausoleums remain virtually shuttered.  Volpe laments the Cardinal’s inaction, as seen also in recent events surrounding Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Toronto.
