At this point in the new year 2021, we are moving quickly into this new year. What I am noticing is that, among many things, there are anti-Asian feelings of expression developing that are pure racism. In Ontario recently over 500 crimes have recently been committed! These Asian Canadian crimes are on the rise. Non-Asians are spitting on Asian Canadians. There is a strong showing of this in Ontario and this is really surprising.
At the present time, Asian Canadians live in fear. This may be a stereotype but it is very real. And hurtful!
Any Catholic Canadian must speak out against this! We need to stamp this out right now! The really big question here is how can we worship properly in the Holy Spirit with any kind of attitude that reflects this?? Speak out! And do something about it!
God help all those who are inflicted with these sins of others (and our sins)! God grant us all peace!
Come, Holy Spirit, and fill our hearts. Amen!!
