First Gay Blessing in Church in Italy (Quo vadis, Pope Francis? Part 182)

The Church cannot bless sin? Well, her pastors just did.

This is the first public blessing in church of a gay union, with a Mass though not within the Mass. Technically not a same-sex marriage, but for all intents and purposes it is. A Mass of thanksgiving? Thank God for sin? Yes, that is what these liberal pastors have done.

Once again, and more and more blatantly, LGBT advances. In particular, same-sex unions, and now, same-sex marriage. No, not just in the world, but in the Church! How utterly diabolical.

And in a church in the diocese of Cardinal Zuppi, the President of the Italian Bishops’ Conference.

What do you say, Pope Francis? You are clearly pro-LGBT. You have already given your approval to same-sex civil unions. You sacked Abp Morandi of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith after he issued a ban on blessing same-sex unions. I believe your intent with your Synod on Synodality is to have the Church approve of homosexuality. Do you approve of this travesty?


First gay blessing in Italy, diocese of Italian bishops’ president

First, the civil union at the registry office, then the blessing in church. It’s the first time a gay couple has been blessed in public in an Italian church. What’s more, it took place in Bologna which is the diocese of Cardinal Zuppi, the president of the Italian Bishops' Conference. An act which is in open violation of the Responsum of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which forbids such blessings. It’s a demonstration of the pharisaic hypocrisy of certain pastors who, instead of calling the sheep back, proudly lead them on the road to perdition.

The diocese of Archbishop Matteo Maria Zuppi, one of the most prominent Italian cardinals of the moment and newly appointed president of the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI), has staged the first public blessing of a homosexual union.

Pietro Morotti and Giacomo Spagnoli were united civilly on 11 June in the municipality of Budrio in the province of Bologna. After the classic souvenir photo and throwing of rice, the doors of the church of San Lorenzo, which is just across the square from the registry office, were opened wide for them.
