Yet again, trouble from the Holy See! Pope Francis falls again for leftist politics, rather than the pressing problems facing the Church.
According to Catholic News Agency, Pope Francis is in Canada to apologize for the church disrespecting the culture of Canada’s Indigenous population by separating children from their parents and putting them in residential schools.
The Supreme Pontiff arrived in Alberta, Canada, on July 24 to meet with numerous leaders from Canada’s indigenous tribes. This trip is a part of his “penitential pilgrimage,” which seeks to make amends for the churches’ supposed role in the abuse and suffering of many of Canada’s native population.
In 2021, a massive grave of 215 native children led to civil unrest, including the destruction of numerous local Catholic churches. Later it became clear that this mass grave was actually an unmarked site for natives who had died mostly from tuberculosis. These people were given Catholic burials with wooden markers, which eventually decayed and vanished. Most cases, Catholics helped the indigenous people. It was too late and already the damage was done. What was the Canadian government’s response to this anti-Catholic terrorism? Justin Trudeau stated: “I understand the anger that’s out there.”
Pope Francis greeted Canada’s indigenous representatives and Prime Minister Trudeau inside Edmonton International Airport. Photo shows the Pope greeting and kissing one of the representatives. Yikes!
Although no public comments were made at the airport, the Pope sent a tweet with a message.
My dear brothers and sisters #CanadaTo meet with the native peoples, I am coming among you. My penitential pilgrimage may, by God’s grace and your spiritual support, contribute to the reconciliation journey already begun. You are invited to accompany me. #prayer.

“Dear brothers and sisters of #Canada,” the pope tweeted before his departure, “I come among you to meet the indigenous peoples. By God’s grace, I pray my penitential journey might help to complete the reconciliation process. Please accompany me with #prayer.” Unfortunately, instead of asking essential questions about what happened, the media’s role in conflating the story, and the Canadian government not punishing the arsonists, Pope Francis took all responsibility for the violence.
Pope Francis is the victim of the power of the leftist and atheistic mob, when the Church must be strong. Prayers for the Pope, the Holy Church and everyone!
