Church becomes tent city


In the Church of St Boniface, Brussels there is a growing tent city. It is occupied by the "without-papers" demanding their rights. There are hundreds of places to choose to occupy in Belgium but they have chosen to desecrate a Church. We found in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, four people including possibly the priest (difficult to say from the way he was dressed) about to start the "Rosary of the Holy Spirit". The Church is run by the Spiritan Fathers who are reviving this devotion originally approved by Pope Leo XIII.

However, the rest of the Church has been utterly tranformed, starting with the posters outside.

They even have a computer installed on which they were playing card games.

And an open fire. Sorry for the poor quality of the photo. The man was quite aggressive.

The tents run the entire length of the aisle.

Not the first time that this has happened in Brussels. How can you evangelise when most people would be too frightened to enter this Church? The Church authorities don't care.

Those were the days when the infidels had to use fire and sword to occupy sacred ground.
