Rather than rewrite this post, I'll insert an UPDATE up front.
Lifesitenews has an extensive article on this incident--described initially below on the basis of a very partial Twitter post by Jack Posobiec. We now have a 6 minute + video that shows:
As initially speculated below, this is a Polish church in London.
The police enter the sanctuary and traipse around with no visible display of respect--although, in fairness, that's SOP in many if not most New Order churches.
The priest cooperates, telling the reluctant congregation "Please leave now or you'll be fined, and they say they'll call more police."
Lifesite contacted the Metropolitan Police, who tried to deny that any threats of fines were made--but that's documentably untrue.
Some jerk called the police on these people--"grassed them out", as the English say.
Read it all here:
Police stop Good Friday Catholic service threatening worshippers with a fine if they did not immediately leave.
And here's the full video from Youtube:
This is the face of the Great Reset. Police taking over the sanctuary of a church to tell people worshipping God to go home or be fined 200 Euros (or pounds or whatever). Events like the one below have taken place in other countries, such as Canada, that worship the Great Satan or whatever the religion of the Great Reset worships. Clergy have been jailed and even kept in solitary confinement for violating the New Order of the Great Reset and its Covid regulations.
Jack Posobiec posted a portion of the video:
BREAKING: London police shut down Catholic mass on Good Friday— Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) April 3, 2021

This liturgy was not a "mass". Mass is not celebrated by Catholics between Holy Thursday evening and the Easter Vigil. So this was a Good Friday liturgy, but not a "mass".
My initial assumption, based on the accent of the priest, is that the priest--and possibly much of the congregation--is Polish. The UK has a sizeable Polish population.
I'm unaware--and this may only be me--of videos of police taking over mosques and sending the Muslim worshippers home. I'm open to correction on this point.
Re the Great Reset generally, last night I read a nice piece by Mark Steyn: The Reset Jet Set Revisited. Steyn is always quotable, and this fits in with the video of the official thugs crushing worshippers of God in London:
Nobody's cooing over the "borderless world" beloved of brain-dead big thinkers of the day before yesterday. Unless you're a Davos jetsetter, a "Syrian" "refugee", a Covid-positive Mexican or member of some other approved group, there are borders everywhere now - around your home in many jurisdictions, five kilometres from your home in the Irish Not-So-Free State, between Australian states...
Underneath the lofty generalities of the Davos set, this is what the Great Reset boils down to as a practical matter. "Each and every one of us has a vital role to play," says the Prince of Wales. His vital role is to think big thoughts, your vital role is to stay indoors on pain of a $5,000 fine unless given permission to leave for approved purposes during daylight hours.
That distinction between the rulers and the ruled has sharpened during the last year - and the very acceptance of that distinction by the overwhelming majority of western citizens does us no credit whatsoever.
On the assumption that this unlawful Catholic gathering in London was a substantially Polish gathering, I'll share an email that I sent that covers another recent event in the UK--one which has a certain ironic bearing on the UK state shutting down Polish gatherings.
This took place in the UK's Wembley Stadium, with the Polish National Soccer Team. Paul Mirengoff also ran a post on this event: POLAND’S NATIONAL SOCCER TEAM SAYS NO TO THE KNEE.
And just to show that the Poles never forget ...
The English team did take the knee, however, leading to many online jokes in Polish suggesting that the English players were apologizing to Poland for perceived historical slights and betrayals during the Second World War.
One popular internet meme showed a photograph of the English players kneeling amidst the standing Polish players and the caption: “March 2021, London, 11 English representatives apologize to the Polish delegation for September ‘39, Tehran, Yalta, and the Post-war Victory Parade.”
Prior to Germany’s Lighting-War against Poland, Polish athlete Maria Kwaśniewska refused to join in the universal Nazi salute at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, and a picture of her standing stone-faced on the winner’s podium has also been making the Twitter rounds.
The reference to the Post-War Victory Parade is to an event that sticks in the craw of all Poles. Churchill--on the insistence of Stalin--refused to allow the Polish Armed Forces to participate in the victory parade in London.
Most British allies took part in the parade, including Belgium, Brazil, China, Czechoslovakia, France, Greece, Luxembourg the Netherlands and the United States. The parade arrangements caused a controversy surrounding the lack of representation of Polish forces.
The parade caused political controversy in the UK and has continued to be criticised because of the lack of representation of Polish forces. During the war, more than 200,000 members of the Polish Armed Forces in the West had fought under British High Command.
The Polish forces fighting with the Western allies were the 4th largest army in Europe--larger than the Free French forces under DeGaulle.
I don't know how much you know about the contributions of the Polish military to victory over Nazi Germany. They were considerable and you can read about them here: Polish contribution to World War II. The Polish contributions via Enigma/Ultra were arguably the single most important factor in ultimate victory over Nazi Germany--bearing in mind that Ultra intelligence was also shared with the USSR. Without that intelligence contribution it's doubtful that England could have been victorious in the Battle of Britain or the Battle of the Atlantic, in both of which Enigma/Ultra was crucial.
The contributions of Polish pilots to the RAF in the Battle of Britain are fairly well known, as also the Polish role in the North African campaign and the capture of Monte Cassino. There were many other instances in which the Polish military played key roles. One tied to the Normandy Campaign was the heroic role the Polish 1st Armored Division played at the Falaise Gap. And of course there's much more.
Another 220K Poles fought in the Soviet armed forces, including at the final Battle of Berlin.
How many of the people laughing at "Polish jokes" when I was growing up knew this history?
UPDATE: Steyn makes another important point in his article, namely that "the people--or 'chaps'--who matter" in the world (just as gals can now by 'guys', I suppose they can be 'chaps', too) are mostly people you've never heard of. These people are not the people that the MSM blathers about--Zhou Baiden and the other 'omnipresent pygmies'. So I've embedded this video that Steyn also includes which features your real masters, well, blathering. They may not be omnipresent, but they're still pygmies. Let me know after you watch this Klaus Schwab guy blather whether you come away with the same impression I'm getting--that the National Socialists may have finally won, having rebranded to Global Socialists. Interestingly, these deeply creepy people apparently want you to see them blather:
... most of the chaps who matter in this world are people you've never heard of - by which I mean they are other than the omnipresent pygmies of the political scene: ...
A lot of those chaps you've never heard of turn up in this video from the "World Economic Forum" - ie, the Davos set. After five months of Covid lockdown, you'll be happy to hear that all the experts have decided that 2021 will be the year of "The Great Reset".
I see my chums at the Heartland Institute headline this the "World Leaders' 'Great Reset' Plan". But, if by "leader" you mean an elected head of government accountable to the people, there is a total dearth. Indeed, it's a melancholy reflection on the state of "world leadership" that the nearest to anyone accountable to the people in this video is HRH The Prince of Wales, in whom one day in the hopefully extremely far distant future the executive authority of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, etc will be nominally vested but which cannot be exercised without the consent of the people's representatives. Yet even that token accountability is, as noted, in the future. So right now he's just another guy who's a "world leader" because he gets invited to Davos and you don't - and, even if you were minded to show up anyway, you'd need a private jet because all the scheduled flights have been Covid-canceled and the world's airports are ghost towns.
Anyway, Happy Easter--or Wesołego Alleluja!
