An indelible character of a different kind?
Bergoglio’s Field Hospital has arrived: COVID Shots administered in Irish Hospital Chapel closed for Sacraments
Francis has long dreamed of his Modernist sect being a “field hospital” that treats the “wounds” of its people — he talks about it every so often (for example, in 2013 | 2015 | 2019). In the town of Waterford, Ireland, that has now come true in a more literal sense that he probably anticipated.
The University Hospital Waterford comes with a “Roman Catholic” chapel on its grounds, under the care of the Novus Ordo diocese of Waterford and Lismore. The chapel is currently closed, hence no sacraments — valid or invalid — are administered there for the time being. Meanwhile, the nave (“gathering space”) has been cleared out and converted into a field hospital to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
To see how that looked on Jan. 5, 2021, please view the photograph published by Waterford News & Star here (the accompanying story is accessible here).
What makes the whole situation even more disturbing is that while these shots are being given in the church, the Novus Ordo version of the Blessed Sacrament is being reserved in the tabernacle. Here is a detail taken from the above-linked photo, annotated with arrows pointing to the tabernacle and the sanctuary candle, which is clearly lit:
A lit sanctuary candle signifies that the Real Presence of Christ is present in the tabernacle. Granted, the Novus Ordo version of the Blessed Sacrament is most likely invalid, but that is beside the point here. The least they could have done is remove their “Blessed Sacrament” to prevent sacrilege. But then, in the Vatican II Church, man always takes precedence over God.
We’ll just leave it at that.
