For the most part, in recent times I have tuned out from the papal mega-Masses. However, I saw a report that at the mega-Mass in Bolivia, Holy Communion was distributed from paper bags.
I was ready to believe that, since the Holy Father had vested for Mass in – I’m not making this up – a Burger King (ironic symbol of Americanist imperialism and consumerism which promotes the eradication of the rain forest for the sake of corporate beef).
However, when I reviewed the video of the Mass, I found that they weren’t paper bags after all. Watching the video, more carefully, the Blessed Sacrament was in some sort of bowl which was wrapped or covered with what looked like a cloth – perhaps paper – bag.
You can see clearly, if you are patient, that there is a container within the white material, with a rounded edge.
So, let’s not say that Holy Communion was distributed from paper bags, as if there were only paper bags, like pop corn.
Don’t get me wrong. Do I like what they did? No. You might not want to watch the video of the distribution of Communion. It was appalling. These mega-Masses with Communion for all have to stop.
Moderation queue is ON.
Meanwhile… for those who are willing to think badly of Pope Francis no matter what… I am shocked that people didn’t react to the sight of His Holiness tending his BBQ on the balcony of St. Peter’s. (source)
I mean… really. You’ve got the gardens, Your Holiness.
Why not slide back der’, by Ben’s crib, yo? Feel me?
