“Pope” Francis enjoys Lunch inside Bologna Cathedral
Countless Novus Ordo parents who have taught their children not to bring food into church, have egg on their face today, as “Pope” Francis enjoyed a “solidarity luncheon” with prisoners, poor people, and refugees inside San Petronio Basilica in Bologna, Italy. This event was featured explicitly as part of the “Holy Father’s” schedule for the day.
No doubt the usual Francis defenders will find ways to excuse this profanation of a house consecrated for the worship of God. They may point to Francis’ “magnanimity” for the outcast, seek to find precedent in King David’s eating of the show bread in the Temple (see Mt 12:3-4), or remind us that Christ first gave people to eat before He instructed them (see Jn 6). But none of these things even come close to being relevant since there was no genuine need to eat inside the sacred building. No one was on the verge of starving, and food could have very easily been served to everyone outside the basilica. And of course it goes without saying that Francis will never instruct anyone in the true Gospel of Christ.
What did Christ our Lord say about profaning His Father’s house?
And entering into the temple, he began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought. Saying to them: It is written: My house is the house of prayer. But you have made it a den of thieves.
St. Paul the Apostle had something very specific to say about eating and drinking as it relates to divine worship:
When you come therefore together into one place, it is not now to eat the Lord’s supper. For every one taketh before his own supper to eat. And one indeed is hungry and another is drunk. What, have you not houses to eat and to drink in? Or despise ye the church of God; and put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? Do I praise you? In this I praise you not.
(1 Cor 11:20-22)

Its a community meal. The only thing wrong with this event is that is being held in proximity to what was once the altar where the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was offered. At least they didnt (as far as I know), use the High Altar as the buffet line. We can be assured no Eucharist was profaned since I am sure no valid one has been consecrated there in years. Seriously, we should be outraged with this but never surprised. As long as the modernists occupy the once Catholic churches, we Catholics will should be outraged at every NO event that is performed in those once sacred spaces.
Ever since The Deuce had the World Day of Prayer for Peace in Assisi, in 1986, nothing surprises me.
(Oops, I am sorry, “Saint” Deuce.)
That cathedral would make an awesome meeting hall, party center and catering business. Maybe the Church can earn back some of the damage awards it has paid out on the sex abuse scandals. This is no more a sacrilege than Francis’ new and improved teachings on marriage and divorce and remarriage.
Why not, VII-Novus Ordo? Why not? You have poured the poison of the new rites, disciplines and beliefs into every beautiful consecrated formerly Catholic church and cathedral on the planet, mocking the sanctuary that once held the real presence of Our Lord. Bergoglio acts and speaks abomination as smoothly and as easily as his forefathers in apostasy. And the ludicrousness of the ‘correction’, and the R&R, and the SSPX pining for ‘full communion’, continues. Mr Matt, Mr Ferrera, Mr Verrecchio, every SSPXer, every complaining Novus Ordite conservative, there is your papa, and that is yours and his ‘church’. You are in communion with a man and an ideology that was and continues to be built on the mockery of the true God, which functions on obeisance to the devil. Bergoglio would never be seen chowing down in a synagogue, a mosque, a buddhist temple, or even a Protestant revival, how disrepectful. All the mockery, all the barbs and attacks are saved for one faith – the Catholic Faith.

Obviously, there was no room at the inn.
Was it halal? That’s the really really important issue. Wouldn’t want to offend our new neighbours and future masters from the desolate sands of the 7th century Arabian peninsula, now would we.
And is it not a prophetic action?
I mean, in light of Europe’s open doors policy, not to mention the open windows agenda of the pastorally inspired roly poly pope with the shady Masonic pals. Indeed: Aggioramento mk II.
I wonder what they did with the fresco depicting Mohammad in hell…
Sick hypocritical critics
It is a far better use of the building than the New Mass they have there on Saturday nights and Sundays.
The building has been desecrated and profanated since 1969, so what’s the big deal?
I would rather see these meals in all the basilicas, cathedrals, churches, chapels, and oratories they have usurped. These meals are far less offensive than the Novus Ordo Missae of the Cult of Man. The buildings may make excellent brewpubs, Taco Bell’s, Outback Steakhouses, or whatever. Anything is better than the heretical “worship” services of the new religion of the Antichrist.
Heretical schismatic anti BISHOPS -all since the Council claptrap. Sicko
More Communist propaganda by the Communist-in-Chief: Pope Francis.
It seems like the Catholic Church is today simply a puppet of International Communism and the globalist elites (i.e. George Soros, Rothschilds banking interests, EU etc.)
The Vatican II sect is quite skilled at hiding their true agenda with rose colored glasses and false charity . There is no doubt that the evil liar and skilled manipulator is the behind the scenes author of this false religion . At every turn they attack what the Church was using her once sacred places to show how her tradition means nothing and that they are the New Order that worships man not God..
If folks in the Novus Ordo (anyone communing with its heresiarchs) really seek Truth, they will see the Novus Ordo and its rites and hierarchy and their skin will crawl at a recognition of the evil.
He could have organized all this anywhere, but he wants to give a message to who he hates most: the crucified God himself. Hell is little to this damn heretic!
What I’m dying to know is…what did he have for lunch? Was it a ***bologna*** sandwhich? No pun intended. 😀
