Perth Cathedral: “vaccine” – yes; Rosary – no.

Archbishop Timothy Costelloe of Perth has gone one step further than promoting the abortion-tainted gene serum: he has taken to supplying it through his Cathedral. So far, St Mary’s Cathedral has hosted two COVID-jab weekends; the last took place on January 8th and 9th.

Costelloe also said he has no objections to opening God’s house to the COVID cult any old time its high priests deem that necessary. The high priests – doctors from Royal Perth Hospital, the Western Australian Police Commissioner and the Vaccine Commander, Commissioner Christopher Dawson – encouraged His Grace to open his doors so that Perth’s Catholics can “stay safe” while they are fulfilling their Sunday obligation.

“It’s an act of love”, the Freemason-friendly Archbishop Costelloe told media last year. “It’s for the common good.” Sure, if “common” means “everyone is doing it” and “good” means keeping the abortion industry in business.

“Abortion?” I hear you say. “But Archbishop Costelloe has assured us that these innoculations have nothing to do with abortion!” He has? Then His Grace is being somewhat untruthful.

There is some part of the community that is concerned that because the very early days of the development of the early discoveries which later led to the vaccines, there was some involvement of cells derived from aborted children. And of course, the Catholic Church’s position on abortion is very clear. …… [but it is licit] because of the remote nature of the origins of it and of the need to have it for the common good.

Archbishop Timothy Costelloe, PERTH CATHOLIC, Dec ’21.

Wow. Look at that attempt to distance the vex from abortion: “the early days of the development of the early discoveries which later led to the vaccines.” That certainly is something of a stretch.

Despite that obfuscation from His Grace, we know that Pfizer and Moderna used HEK cells at each stage of development. We also know that these Big Pharma companies lie – so they will only under-report the use of fetal cells, not over-report.

So, it hardly needs to be restated here that these experimental “vaccines” constitute proximate complicity with the grave evil of abortion, and not remote complicity, as the Archbishop would have us believe. The use of cells harvested from innocent children (sometimes while still alive) is not, as Costelloe suggests, confined to only one step in the drug’s development process way back in the dim, dark past.

As Children of God for Life remind us, “our obligation is to effectively oppose the use of aborted children in biomedical research” – not to go about jabbing initiates of the COVID cult.

Does this……
… remind you of this?
….. or even of this??

Now, all of this is bad enough. But our Archbishop went above and beyond his usual pattern of ignoring Catholicism and embracing the world: he banned a group of faithful Catholics from praying outside the Cathedral while the jab clinic was open. (See the Facebook live video here – commentary begins around the 18 mins mark.)

According to the reporter, Cathedral security told the Rosary group, who had gathered to pray for the Church, that their prayers were considered a “protest.” The group were told that unless they stopped praying outside the building, the police would be called to move them on.

Imagine that: a Catholic Archdiocese would call police to move on Catholics who were praying. Unbelievable.

Strangely – and this really is odd: the Catholic group were given the alternative of praying inside the Cathedral grounds. So prayer inside the building is edifying while prayer outside the building is “protest”?

Apparently “conscience” is all well and good when it lines up with the right narrative. Should one’s conscience somehow not be invoked if it makes one oppose a prelate’s error? Then again, it wasn’t that long ago that Costelloe was throwing a Catholic school principal under the bus for refusing to get jabbed, so that tells us all we need to know about the post-conciliar canard of “conscience.”

Perhaps the only consolation in all of this is that the jabs weren’t given in the body of the church – so now the Cathedral parish centre can add “depopulation campaign” to the myriad occupations hosted there.

All smiles. But who foots the bill when a parishioner ends up with myocarditis? Or worse?

In an earlier article, I drew attention to the incongruence of many Catholics being only too willing to accept an invasive medical treatment at the behest of the Church, yet dismissing Church teaching on issues as important as birth control, because “celibate-men-have-no-right-to-tell-me-what-to-do” and, well, because babies are simply too much work. It’s that elastic “conscience” at work again.

Speaking of babies, we’ve all heard about “Safeguarding Children” and “Protecting The Most Vulnerable”. In fact, that’s about all we’ve heard from the Church for the past ten years – apart from the plethora of cultural Marxist talking points.

So now that the Western Australian government is pushing COVID-jabs on the 5-11-year-olds, will the clinic at St. Mary’s Cathedral soon be injecting children? If so, the Archbishop might want to get that Rosary group back to pray for him, pronto: when the children’s bodies start piling up, their parents are going to be far more vocal than those of the tiny little donor of HEK-293.

Why did the bishop buy the Lodge?

It sounds like a joke, does it not? But this is deadly serious. A Catholic Archbishop, in need of new premises for his admin offices, concluded that a Freemason’s Lodge would be the best location from which to preach, teach and sanctify his unwary flock.

This story might be a few years old now, but it’s still worth taking a closer look.

Timothy Costelloe was installed as Archbishop of Perth in 2012, and in August 2015 purchased a $7 million property in Perth’s CBD from which to run the Archdiocese. The property, 249 Adelaide Terrace was owned by the Grand Lodge WA and had been used as their headquarters. Who knows what kind of deal was struck, but the bishop got quite a bargain as he paid half a million less than the amount paid by the Masons when they bought the property six years earlier.

Now it is somewhat strange for a Catholic institution to take over a Masonic temple – especially in these days when our bishops seem only too willing to “dialogue and accompany” the Masons. In fact, there could be one of only three reasons why a bishop would make this decision:

1. Extreme piety: despite exorcists claiming that it is sometimes impossible to cleanse a geographical site from demonic influence, the bishop is confident that he can enlist all the powers of the Church (exorcism, prayers of liberation, sacramentals, Masses) to free the site and use it to further the mission of the Church.

2. Ignorance: the bishop’s formation was so dumbed-down that he sees Masonry as no threat to Catholicism; he thinks it’s nothing more than a social club for men intent on growing their virtues.

3. He is a Mason and wants to access the power that comes from the dual processes of mocking God (by moving Church offices into a former temple) and of tapping into the rituals that have been performed there.

Hopefully it’s number 2, although that doesn’t minimise the risk to the Archdiocese. (Number One is out of the question – this is Australia, remember?) So what is known about Archbishop Costelloe? Does he have any form as a Mason or Masonic sympathiser?

Well, he says he is against child abuse (don’t they all?) but followed his predecessors’ footsteps by covering it up (ditto) – even though he has “seen the anguish” first hand. He says enforced celibacy causes priests to abuse children but then sacked a priest for breaking his vow of celibacy. (Obviously, the action taken by His Grace was appropriate, however, it does seem a tad inconsistent with his stance on celibacy….) The Archbishop is also involved with a few legal battles with his priests, not to mention whispers of his utter contempt for the more orthodox ones.

But at least he honours the ancestors, right?

He has even opted not to stick up for a Catholic school principal who is against the state government’s vaccine mandates. Instead of lauding that man, Archbishop Costelloe distanced himself from the principal, saying that he was “deeply disappointed.”

Yes, your Grace, it is always disappointing when a layman shows up the clergy’s lack of conviction by demonstrating his own.

So now, having looked briefly at some poignant items from the bishop’s CV, let us return to the title of this piece: why DID the bishop buy the Lodge?

All things considered, could the answer possibly be: to get to the Other Side?
