(LifeSiteNews) — A webinar with clerical plagiarist Father Thomas Rosica has been cancelled.
A spokesman for the Jesuits of Canada has confirmed that Rosica’s lecture will not take place as advertised.
“We confirm that the webinar in which Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, was scheduled to participate in January has been cancelled; Fr Rosica was no longer available,” said José Sánchez by email.
“We will have no further comment.”

America’s best loved pro-life priest, Fr. Frank Pavone, the National Director of Priests for Life as well as the President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, has been laicized (dismissed from the priesthood) by order of Pope Francis.
SIGN: This outrageous attack on the pro-life movement by the so-called “listening Church” is a mockery of justice. Stand by Fr. Pavone ASAP!
A December 13 letter to all bishops in America, sent from the Pope’s representative in America – the Papal Nuncio Fr. Christophe Pierre – said that Fr. Pavone was laicized for “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop.”
In a separate statement, the papal nuncio wrote that the Prefect of the Dicastery for the Clergy – the head of the Vatican’s department dealing with priests – said that there was “no possibility of appeal” of the decision.
DEMAND JUSTICE: Pope Francis' totalitarian regime cannot strike down faithful pro-life priests like Fr. Frank Pavone without international outrage!
The statement calls Fr. Pavone, “Mr. Pavone.”
“Since Priests for Life, Inc. is not a Catholic organization, Mr. Pavone's continuing role in it as a lay person would be entirely up to the leadership of that organization,” the statement says.
The statement notes that the decision on the matter by the Dicastery for Clergy was issued on November 9, but Fr. Pavone had not heard of the decision from the Vatican until CNA called him for comment.
SIGN AND STAND UP NOW: DEMAND THAT POPE FRANCIS IMMEDIATELY STOP HIS ATTACKS AGAINST FAITHFUL PRIESTS!
If Pope Francis and this Vatican regime can get away with expelling faithful priests like Fr. Frank Pavone, then the Catholic Church may truly be entering the darkest period of her existence!

The talk, entitled “Discerning and Re-imagining the Church Through the Lenses of Matthew’s Gospel” and sponsored by the Jesuits of Canada, was originally scheduled to take place on January 17. On Friday, December 16, the day LifeSiteNews reported on Rosica’s speaking engagement, a person enrolled in the online event received an email saying that the Basilian priest was “unable to present his webinar” for “reasons beyond his control.”
“We are forced to cancel the session,” a spokesman for the Jesuits of Canada wrote. “Please accept our apologies.”
This email was sent after LifeSiteNews began making inquiries.
Rosica, whose soaring career as a Catholic communicator was shot down by 2019 discoveries that he had engaged in plagiarism for decades, has been enjoying a renaissance of late as Canadian priests invited their fellow cleric to present lectures and missions to the laity. However, this October, a professor who has continued to monitor Rosica’s published work disclosed to the Catholic News Agency evidence that he had found in three recent articles that the priest had plagiarized again.
