The Oratory of St. Joseph today is also a money-machine temple for the idolatry of St. Joseph who is impotent -- he said nothing and did nothing to save and protect hundreds of students raped by Holy Corss Congregaiton priests and cleric brothers for more than 50 years, read more below.

First Nations have no running water and no toilets at home -- what a SHAME for a G-8 country of Canada!

Saint Brother André -- like the giant statues of St. Joseph -- he said nothing and did nothing to stop his CSC pedophile priests and brothers. His miracles were "questionable" and he is the golden cash cow of the arrogant CSC priests aristocrats at the Oratory who sit idly in wealth, especially those poor Haitians like Claudel Petit-Homme!

Updated August 9, 2013 Feast of "Saint" Brother Andre the Golden Cash Cow of the Oratory of St. Joseph
There is already a beautiful, free spacious park of Mount-Royal where thousands of visitors can go anytime without paying any entrance fee and they can picnic, slide during winter, play, etc. And they can see the entire city of Montreal from that highest peak of the city. Therefore, there is no need for another outlook view in Montreal and for the federal government or the provincial government (who has committed 26.4 million dollars) to renovate the Oratory of St. Joseph where only a few limited people can enter and go up to its roof to see the city, and it is not much of a view to see from there anyway. Canadians must protest the Federal Government and the provincial government to STOP them from donating to the renovation of the Oratory of St. Joseph and to give these taxpayers millions of dollars for the clean water of First Nations (or Aboriginal People, see list of news below) It is a shame for Canada, a G8 Nation to treat its aboriginal inhabitants to live without running water and in shameful low poverty level worse than Haiti.
The Oratory of St. Joseph is owned and run by the Holy Cross Congregation, the wealthiest religious order in Canada and in Montreal, and those arrogant CSC priests, especially those from Haiti priests, do not deserve government funding. Besides, they only sit in their out-of-touch with reality thrones at the Oratory. There are no more young vocations in Quebec priesthood, therefore they "import" them from Haiti and India. But those Haitians are the most arrogant crop of priestly deceivers of the sorcery of the Eucharist, see more below.
It cost $5 for parking and $3 for each person to enter the Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal, plus all the candles at $1 each that sounds like casino slot machines, and $5 for the big candles. For 50 years, shortly after the death of Brother Andre, his College Notre Dame where he worked for 40 years and other Holy Cross schools in Quebec became crime scenes and a fiesta for the sodomy lust of Holy Cross Brothers and pedophile priests. Finally, a $13 million settlement was reached - instead of 18 million dollars the more than 200 victims were asking, read news updates below.
Saint Brother Andre must have known about his pedophile priests and brothers, and his Holy Cross Congregation also knew about them, but during those 50 years, they concentrated on building the Oratory of St. Joseph and his giant statues who said nothing and did nothing to save those hundreds of students being sodomized right under his holy eyes, just like John Paul II, read more here,
Argo &“saint” John Paul II are make-believe legends of Hollywood and the Vatican, the twin cities that “lie for a living” http://popecrimes.blogspot.ca/2013/07/argo-john-paul-ii-are-make-believe_11.htmlFirst Nations people or Aboriginal People of Canada deserve clean running water and it is time that those impotent statues of St. Joseph and Brother Andre do not STEAL taxpayers money which should go to improve the lives of the first inhabitants of Canada.
BTW, beware of thieves taht are all over the Oratory of St. Joseph, in the parking lots, in the toilets, even inside the churces! There are many woeful stories of victims whose cars and wallets ahve been stolen, and of course, those giagantic statues of St. Joseph and Brother Andre CANNOT really do anything for these victims.
BOYCOTT the ORATORY OF ST. JOSEPH AND TITHE YOUR MOENY TO THE POOR, THE RED CROSS. STOP GIVING TO THOSE SORCERY MAGICIANS PRIESTS WHO ARE HYPOCRITES AND ARROGANT MAGICIANS OF CHRIST,S FLESH.

“PAY VICTIMS FIRST - DO NOT LIGHT CANDLES to impotent St. Joseph”.
"DO NOT WASTE your money on idle WEALTHY CSC PRIESTS who do NOTHING for the POOR and SICK!"
The people of Montreal and Canada must protest - - the funding by the federal and provincial government -- for the 80 million dollars renovations of the Oratory for the next 3 years until 2017. Those Congregation de Sainte-Croix are billionaires and they should pay for the renovation of the Oratory to their FALSE GOD SAINT JOSEPH who said and did nothing to stop CSC pedophile priests sodomizing students at Notre Dame.
The 50 million dollars should be used for the native Indians and Inuit in Quebec and Canada -- who do not running water and have sub-standard of living - which is a shame for the G-8 nation of Canada. Read in news updates below where a doctor who has worked fopr decades in an Indian reserve testify that "25 people living in a three-bedroom house with one washroom.” -- this is Canada a G-8 country, the "best country to live in the world" four times chosen by the United Nations.
HOLD PLACARDS - in front or near the Oratory - with victims of pedophiles - even if there are only 2 or 3 persons.
See below the updated articles about the sub-standard of liivng of native Indians in Canada.

The Quebec government $26.4 million and federal government $26.4 million should spend $42.8 million dollars to help natives to provide them with running water and housing - instead of beautifying the ORATORY of FALSE GOD Saint JOSEPH of FALSE SAINT BROTHER ANDRE.
It is rumoured that the
PSAC ads attacking Conservatives serve as “wake-up call”
Great video. The message is to the point: Imagine someone getting into your house, putting shit into your water, taking plants, fishes, and other resources, and leaving everything ransacked. Well, well... This what companies are doing with our natural resources, and it will get worse with the Harper's cuts to. Thanks PSAC
It’s shocking and aggressive, but the ad attacking the Conservatives over cuts to the environment is supposed to serve as a wake-up call to Canadians, says the regional executive vice president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada behind the ad.
“There’s a shock effect to it,” Larry Rousseau said in an interview on the Global News program The West block with Tom Clark.
“When you hear an alarm go off in the building, it’s aggressive isn’t it? And you want it to go off.”
The ad found on the website notothecuts.ca shows masked men in jackboots kicking down a woman’s door to the sounds of thumping music. The men go on to pour a bitumen-like substance into her fish tank, break her potted plants and even throw a lit cigar into her glass of water.
Rousseau said the ads are supposed to sound the alarm about environmental deregulation found in Conservative budgets.
“When you’ve taken 99.5 and 99. 7 per cent of our lakes and rivers no longer subject to environmental regulation at the federal level, this is serious. Very serious stuff,” he said.
Rousseau said there is perhaps an “artistic value” to the ads which serve as an analogy of innocence.
“What can be more innocent than the environment that we wish to leave to our children and future generations?” he said.
“We’re looking out for the public interest, not the corporate interest.”
When asked about the implication of violence against women, Rousseau said no one was harmed in making the ads.
“This is why we’re talking about a wake-up call. We are on the front lines. Our inspectors, environmental inspectors on the front lines, are seeing what’s happening. We’re being removed from the equation, so we are out there saying if this continues, we will no longer be able to fill our mandate to protect the health and the safety of Canadians.”
PSAC has released three videos so far - one about food inspection, another aviation inspection and this one, on environmental regulations.
Rousseau said ultimately the ads are about provoking debate.
“Canadians are going to have to make decisions in the coming months and years regarding where our country is going. That’s what we want. We want debate.”
In responding to the ads last week, NDP environment critic Megan Leslie said the videos are caricatures and a way to demonstrate frustrations with the government on environment.
“I think it’s a good reflection of how frustrated people are,” she said. “Whether it’s repealing the Environmental Assessment Act, whether it’s gutting the Fisheries Act and the Navigable Waters Protection Act, I understand why Canadians are concerned. I understand why they’re frustrated because all of this is happening without any consultation.”
But Conservative Michelle Rempel, who is parliamentary secretary to the environment minister, called the videos “embarrassing fear-mongering.”
“There are many members of the public service that I work with and have a great deal of respect for, that work closely with our government on carrying out its mandate on a daily basis. And I think that those members would both be very concerned and disappointed,” said Rempel.
She said the government has invested hundreds of millions of dollars into clean water initiatives, protected nearly 50 per cent more parkland than when they came into office, and has reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
“These are all very positive things that Canada can be proud of not just at home, but also internationally. So it’s very disappointing to see this type of video.”
The Harper government's budget cuts target essential public services that ensure the health, safety and well-being of citizens. Impacted sectors include food inspection, aviation safety and security, environmental protection and employment insurance. We are all affected by these cuts.

The city of Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed by God and they were sleeping around with adult males, but in the Vatican Catholic Church and in the Oratory of St. Joseph CSC priests, the pedophile priests were sodomizing little boys, therefore their sins are worse and they will also be demolished by God as predicted by the Third Secret of Fatima.
(KJV) described what followed, which confirmed its end: See more text below
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, [even] the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where [are] the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. (NRSV: know them, NIV: can have sex with them, NJB: can have intercourse with them).

People, please STOP DONATING to the ORATORY of St. Joseph and instead donate your money to Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, your local charities, and the homeless shelters of Montreal.
God will listen more to your prayers - through your acts of charity - because they are better than material candles and money you give to the wealthy billionaire CSC religious Holy Cross family of Saint Brother Andre.
God said in the Bible: It isn’t material sacrifice that I want, but acts of mercy.
If you were to face Christ on Judgement Day today, He will not ask you how many candles you have lit at the Oratory of St. Joseph, but how many poor people you have helped, as He has said, “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren, that you have also done to Me.”
Christ also said, when you pray, go to your room, close the door and pray to your Father in secret, and he will hear your prayers

Arrêtez allumant des bougies! Dieu n'a pas besoin de bougies.
Les pauvres ont besoin de manger. Les sans-abri ont besoin d'un abri. Les sans-abri PAS autorisés dans l'Oratoire!
Il est des actes de miséricorde que je veux, dit le Seigneur, et non pas des sacrifices matériels et des bougies!
Dieu n'a pas besoin de vos bougies!
Saint-Joseph n'a pas besoin de vos bougies.
Les gens, s'il vous plaît cesser de donner à l'Oratoire Saint-Joseph et à la place donner votre argent à la Croix-Rouge, Médecins sans frontières, vos organismes de bienfaisance locaux, ainsi que les refuges pour itinérants de Montréal.
Dieu écoutera plus à vos prières - à travers vos actes de charité - parce qu'ils sont meilleurs que les bougies de matériels et de l'argent que vous donnez à la famille CSC milliardaire riche religieux de Sainte-Croix de Saint Frère André.
Dieu dit dans la Bible: Il n'est pas sacrifice matériel que je veux, mais des actes de miséricorde.
Si vous deviez faire face à Jésus-Christ au jour du jugement d'aujourd'hui, il ne vous demandera pas combien de bougies que vous avez allumé à l'Oratoire Saint-Joseph, mais combien de personnes pauvres que vous avez aidé, comme il l'a dit: «Ce que vous faites à l'au moins de mes frères, que vous avez également fait pour moi. "
Christ a dit, quand tu pries, entre dans ta chambre, ferme la porte et prie ton Père dans le secret, et il entendra vos prières

Catholic order knew of alleged abuse: document
Last Updated: Wednesday, September 29, 2010A Roman Catholic order in Quebec was aware of allegations of sexual abuse by brothers in the religious group, according to evidence discovered by Radio-Canada.
A nine-page document, written by a long-term member of the Order of Holy Cross, chronicles specific allegations of abuse over the years at Montreal's College Notre Dame. The document lists a dozen Holy Cross brothers from various institutions.
It also outlines how alleged abusers at the order's flagship private school were not reported to the police and instead were allowed to stay on as teachers or support staff.
The document said in at least one case, the college paid $250,000 to buy the silence of a family that complained.
Wilson Kennedy, a former member of the order, says there was a culture of silence that protected alleged abusers. (CBC)
Wilson Kennedy, a former member of the religious order, told Radio-Canada in an exclusive interview that while he was with the order he spoke to a Vatican official about the problem.
"Rome was informed and the Superior General asked me for clarification on several cases," Kennedy said.
He said there was a culture of silence that protected alleged abusers.
"You protect a group. Was it wrong? Yeah, it was wrong," Kennedy said.
The Order of Holy Cross was responsible for the care and education of thousands of Quebecers over the years. It ran institutions for people with handicaps, halfway houses and private colleges in Montreal and other areas of the province.
Allegations of abuse at College Notre Dame began to surface a couple of years ago. The college is right across the street from the iconic St. Joseph's Oratory, which was also built by the Order of Holy Cross.
A family has launched a lawsuit against the order and formed a support group.
The order said it won't comment while the case is still before the courts, but it did issue a statement saying it vigorously condemns all forms of misconduct.
News update for March 12, 2013
Oratoire Saint-Joseph: 80 millions de travaux d'ici 2017
(Montreal) The Catholic Church may be ailing in Quebec, it does not seem at all to the Saint Joseph's Oratory, which continues to go errs on her since the canonization of Brother André in 2010. Claude Grou its rector is to assemble the necessary funds to begin work on the $ 80 million that will be completed in time for the 375th anniversary of Montreal in 2017.
At $ 13 million in 2012, the annual income of the basilica are up 18% since 2010. Approximately 4 million from donations. By comparison, the annual campaign of the Archdiocese of Montreal harvest around 1.6 million annually.
The Basilica of the Côte-des-Neiges has seen its popularity grow with visitors from outside of Montreal, due to the popularity of religious tourism, believes its rector.
To meet its 2 million visitors it receives annually, management has prepared an investment program of 80 million dedollars, whose highlight is the construction of an observatory in the skylight at the top of the Oratory only building in Montreal than the summit of Mont-Royal.
The work will take three years and Mr. Grou hope to finish in 2017, the 375th of Montreal, the 50th anniversary of Expo 67 and the 150th of Canada.
Quebec has already agreed to pay 26.4 million of the 80 million required. The federal government considers the request. The Oratory third of the advance invoice. In recent years, the Oratory sold parcels of land located behind the monument, private developers and the Sisters of Sainte-Marcelline.
Jonathan Kay: What’s wrong with remote native reserves? Let’s ask a veteran doctor who worked thereExcerpt:
His name is Murray Trusler, a former doctor who began his career in Norway House, Manitoba in 1967-68. He retired in 2010, after serving as Chief of the Medical Staff at Moose Factory, where he worked serving the four First Nations communities on the west coast of James Bay, Moosonee and the two First Nations in Moose Factory.
Over his career, Dr. Trusler has watched many native communities fall into poverty. When he began at Norway House in 1967, many aboriginal Canadians still worked as true subsistence hunters, trappers and fishermen. But as modernization set in, the old ways were largely abandoned, and Natives increasingly became sedentary, like the rest of us. Men lost their traditional jobs as their economy lost its relevance in the modern world. Furs went out of style. Hunting and fishing could no longer support the growing population; and, out of necessity, social welfare became the new normal. Resource development passed them by, as most lacked the skills to participate.
In 1967-68, Dr. Trusler witnessed just one myocardial infarction at Norway House. Now, coronary artery disease is common on reserves. So is Hepatitis A, due to contaminated water supplies. Overcrowded, unhygienic living conditions also contribute to poor health. Dr. Trusler has very specific memories, from his Moose Factory days, of “25 people living in a three-bedroom house with one washroom.”
Forty-six years ago, Dr. Trusler remembers, the reserve at Norway House was dry: There was just one alcohol-related death that year (a poor fellow who’d gotten drunk on “moose milk” — fermented potatoes, raisins and yeast — in -40C weather). Now, alcoholism is epidemic, and a fifth to a quarter of kids on some reserves are born with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (a serious problem that no one wants to talk about, Dr. Trusler reports).
Like a lot of First Nations reform advocates, Dr. Trusler believes a major root of the problem on reserves is the communal land ownership model: Because most band members do not own their own home, they are denied pride in ownership, and cannot accumulate home equity over their lifetimes. As for the bands, they are dependent on the federal government for construction and repair funds. Many houses become mold traps with unventilated plywood basements, leaky roofs, and no weeping tiles (a particular problem for James Bay reserves, which are built on lands that are flood-prone or swampy). Some of these houses, he can attest, end up getting torn down within just a few years of their construction.
Doctors and other needed non-aboriginal professionals, meanwhile, get homes built to code with ventilated basements. These homes stay up in good shape for decades. This is a form of ongoing “housing apartheid” that no one ever talks about. That includes band leaders themselves, some of whom collaborate with shady contractors to throw up a high number of rickety non-code homes that everyone knows are shoddy. When the mold-infested buildings quickly become uninhabitable, the leaders can cynically just throw up their arms and claim they have a “housing crisis” — and demand help from Ottawa.
In a normal, capitalist-based Canadian housing market, no one would move into these homes — even putting aside the code issue — because no one would buy them. But residents of reserves typically must accept whatever housing their band leadership gives them, just as citizens of Soviet Russia had little choice about what crumbling apartment edifice they had to inhabit.
