Faith not exists, not even in sacred artwork

“An unprecedented ugliness has violated the sanctity of the place”: Sgarbi rejects the statue erected within the sanctuary of Oropa. However all over the place, architectural chaos and liturgical “creativity” disfigure historic basilicas and cathedrals. The tabernacle in Don Ciotti’s drawer

One of many rising figures – within the sense that he seems often within the media – is undoubtedly Don Luca Peyronborn 1973, ordained 2007, parish administrator of the Madonna di Pompei, head of the college pastoral care, church assistant of the Fuciclearly theologian and lots of different issues that may be deduced from the entry on Wikipedia – after some malicious ones he wrote himself – the place it seems that Don Luca, scion of the well-known Turin household, who gave the town the mayor Amedeo Peyron“Since 2019 he based and coordinates the Service for the Digital Apostolate of the Diocese, one of many first providers at a world stage devoted to the connection between digital and religion, performs a central function in Turin’s candidacy as Italian Heart for Synthetic Intelligence, the then assigned by the federal government of the subalpine metropolis, he continues to write down repeatedly Sole 24 orel’HuffPost and performed a small function within the movie Have candy desires by Marco Bellocchio within the function of a priest ».

Intensive essays and numerous examples of the devastation wrought on church buildings throughout the post-conciliar interval and extra lately flow into on the net.

Horrible examples of “changes” in our area are the cathedral Alba strongly desired by the bishop Sebastiano Dho with the clear indication that the altar shouldn’t be paying homage to a sacrificial altar, however of a easy desk. At this time it seems as an inverted triangle, planted within the floor like a meteorite and which well-liked knowledge – within the homeland of Nutella – has christened “the chocolate”, on which disco lights shine, whereas the traditional magnificent altar in entrance of which the blessed Giacomo Alberione He spent the evening from December 31, 1899 till the start of the brand new century in prayer and carried out the features of the proscenium for the choir.

As is understood from progressive theology, the Holy Mass has no sacrificial worth, by which Christ sacramentally anticipates his personal struggling and demise, however is simply the reminiscence of a “farewell meal”, a banquet that was the final meal.
