A “Sick Society In The Nets of Evil” Allows Church Vandalism – Cardinal Sarah

From Gloria TV yesterday 

Church vandalism reflects a “sick civilization that gets carried away in the nets of evil” – Cardinal Robert Sarah wrote on Twitter (February 10).

Only last week several French Catholic churches were ransacked. Although this has been going on for a long time the French government and the oligarch media keep mum.

Among the most recent cases is Notre-Dame-des-Enfants in Nîmes where on February 6 the tabernacle was broken open. The hosts were mixed with excrements and smeared on the wall.

On February 9 the hosts were taken out of the tabernacle in the church Notre-Dame in Dijon and thrown around.

Vatican Cardinal Condemns Spate of Church Vandalism in France

The head of the Vatican’s liturgical department has denounced last week’s wave of church vandalism in France, while others decry the “shameful” government silence surrounding the affair.

“The acts of desecration and vandalism in the churches are highly reprehensible,” tweeted Cardinal Robert Sarah, the prefect of the Vatican Congregation of Divine Worship. “They are the sad reflection of a sick civilization that lets itself be swept away in the nets of evil. The bishops, priests, and the faithful must keep up their strength and courage.”

Meanwhile, a priest from the diocese of Albi in southwest France expressed his astonishment at the silence of the French government as well as the mainstream media over the desecration of five Catholic churches over the course of five days.

“Can we know why the Minister of the Interior and Worship is so silent after the wave of church degradation all this week??” wrote Father Gaël Raucoules in a Tweet. “Not a word in the national media and radio silence from the government! Shameful!!!”

The priest added that all the bishops responsible for the vandalized churches have issued statements and have celebrated Masses in reparation for the profanation of sacred spaces, but nonetheless, the government has kept silent.

The five profaned Catholic churches spanned across the country, occurring in the cities of Dijon, Nîmes, Houilles, Maisons-Laffitte, and Lavaur. Several commentators were quick to notice that several of the acts of desecration took place where the Muslim population is particularly concentrated.

The vandalism included smashing statues, crucifixes, and tabernacles, burning altar cloths, smearing walls and floors with excrement, and throwing consecrated hosts on the floor. At the church of Notre-Dame des Enfants in Nîmes, the vandals drew a large cross on the wall with human feces.

Church vandalism in France

“Among so much violence that is agitating our society right now, we also have this: the desecration of a number of our churches in these days. This violence is serious: it reaches places of worship, places of peace for all; it deeply wounds many believers in their faith,” said another priest, Father Grosjean, from the diocese of Versailles, on Twitter.


Some omments and questions asked on BREIBART’s post:

Who are culprits? Could they be the same people who burn down churches and murder Christians in the countries they have come from? And who the Pope defends and welcomes into Europe?”

“When the Government is quiet it speaks volumes.”

Horrifying, but if the church had not been so welcoming to the Mohammedans, this might have been avoided. If a mosque were vandalized every voice in the media and every politician would be screaming. The hypocrisy is disgusting.”

    I do not agree it deeply wounds many believers in their faith though. It might be a poor translation? It wounds our hearts and sensibilities but not our Faith.
