In the administrative language of the state Churches are referred to as sacred buildings the places of worship, precisely because it erected for this purpose and as such recognized and protected.

.

We are not aware however that the State recognized either by law or by international convention with the Holy See, these stable as "reception centers", as "dorms", as spaces for "canteen" and so on [see the photo report, WHO].

.

In the hope that someone put an early end to this artistic havoc, November, small but very followed Catholic voice of 'Patmos Island, as citizens of the Italian Republic who profess the Catholic faith, we appeal to you, Mr. Minister, so that your Ministry hasten to curb and possibly an end to this massacre.

Church Dormitory in Trastevere

Most of our churches They are works of art of extraordinary beauty, intended use of which may not be the dormitory service for homeless people nor the cafeteria service for the needy, which in both cases can cause serious or even irreparable damage to these cultural assets, that regardless of belief or non-belief, by faith or no faith of the citizens of the Italian Republic, are and remain the property belonging to the artistic heritage not only of Italy, but of all humanity. The Holy See can have as best wishes, and sovereignly, of the buildings within the national territory of Vatican City State and of the areas enjoying extraterritorial scheme under the agreements enshrined in the International Law, but it can not dispose at will of all the other numerous buildings of worship of great historical and artistic interest you instead on the territory of the Italian Republic and which are part of our national heritage, including many churches in these times of rampant and villain pauperism they are used around our country as dormitories and canteens.

The Holy See may also decide - as it did with the church of San Callisto which enjoys with its adjoining building of the regime of extraterritoriality - to set up inside the Sistine Chapel a dormitory for homeless or a soup kitchen, because that is stable in the sovereignty of its territory; but it can not use as a use such a monumental church of the fifteenth century which is located on the territory of the Italian Republic.

.

We make this, Mr. Minister, that only in Rome there are hundreds of proprietary structures of the Patrimony of the Apostolic Administration, owned by the Vicariate of Rome, owned by the Congregation of Propaganda Fide, owned by several hundreds of male and female religious congregations, already engaged for many years to hotels, although called more bland "shelters" or "Holiday homes", thus receiving the related benefits, while offering, some of them, hotel services also of superior quality [see list of these religious holiday sites, WHO].

Given that the Church in Rome benefits from all these facilities operating as "shelters" or "Holiday homes", not understand why, to house the homeless, We should put at risk our monumental churches.

.

Whereas the Roman Pontiff It is very sensitive to the homeless, it would be to remember that a few steps from Bernini's Colonnade, beneath which His Holiness has been good enough to prepare baths and showers bums, is a comfortable “Home reception” five-star hotel in the Palazzo Cardinal Cesi in Via della Conciliazione, General Curia of the properties of the Society of the Divine Savior. Why Is That, the homeless, They have not been accommodated in this “Home reception” owned Salvatorian Fathers, instead of in a changed church in dorm? [see website of comfortable “Home reception”, WHO]. A few meters from there is also the comfort of the Bernini colonnade “halfway house Paul VI”, which also benefiting, like the San Callisto, the regime of extraterritoriality, It should not even bother to pay hotel taxes [see WHO, WHO].

Why Is That, the homeless, They were not accommodated in any of several "houses of hospitality" of ownership of the various congregations and religious orders scattered around Rome? [see list of these "host" religious houses, WHO].

.

Throughout history, on the occasion of extraordinary events such as wars, epidemics and earthquakes, It has not even made it necessary to seize the buildings of worship, because it was the Church itself to offer them, and to set up inside them infirmaries, dormitories for homeless and canteens; and the first to provide charitable service in them, They have always been priests, religious.

Since this there are, however, emergencies of this kind, but especially, Whereas the Church and its religious structures have stable in large quantities, many of whom already used for “shelters”, it would not be appropriate to accommodate the poor homeless people shivering inside these structures “hospitality”, instead of within the historic churches ?

Beyond the walls of the State of Vatican City, someone really think we can make use and destruction of our heritage that art of which you, Mr. Minister, Is responsable, It is having been appointed by the Government of the Italian Republic to the protection of our historical assets, artistic and monumental? No bum and no Roma, indeed, Urine on the stones and on the stable marble found inside Vatican City, starting from those of the Domus Sanctae Martha, since their urine, along with their feces left on the streets close to the Papal Basilica of Saint Peter, the scatter all and only on the Italian territory rigor [see our previous article, WHO].

.

For this reason, a number far lower than citizens of the Italian Republic who profess the Catholic faith and who are now increasingly outraged by this contempt towards our historical assets, artistic and monumental, Begs her to intervene as soon as possible and to exercise the powers granted to you by the laws of our country, avoiding the continuation of this terrible destruction.

We would be grateful, therefore, if you would take at least consider this our legitimate request, so that the civil and political power of this our secular and democratic country, can intervene to curb the damage caused by many ecclesiastics to stable worship of great historical and artistic interest, because no one can be allowed to sully our enormous wealth of art and culture; even to those who can see an authentic expression of the Christian faith only in Villas miseries. We, the Christian faith expressed by the art of human ingenuity, we are more likely to see it in Pieta by Michelangelo, much less so in the leak made by a “brother bum” over a fine marble of the fifteenth century.

8 thoughts on "They will house the homeless in churches and then you earn with five-star hotels owned by the Church property. Letter to the Minister of Cultural Heritage

  1. Caro father Ariel,

    for much less than what you said and you wrote, I have been “dusted” from head to toe from my bishop.
    I was parochial vicar, young priest for a year. The pastor organizes (in a century church. XVIII) the “dinner” for the poor before the Christmas Mass.
    Central altar prepared foods, supported drinks … I tried to remove the SS. Sacrament from the tabernacle, but the priest told me … “leave it where it is, or maybe, for case, it bothers you” ?
    Even in a tavern of ill repute, maybe they saw what we saw in that church.
    After S. Stephen went to the bishop, who listened, besides replied in mocking so if by chance I wanted to go back to the church where the priests were closing behind the balustrades and held inches and combined indexes [Ed in the old rite, After the Eucharistic Prayer, the celebrant kept united thumb and index finger of the hands].
    I dismissed it and told me that I had to be a priest in the world and for the world, and I had to abandon certain stiffness, and he said also … and do not make me regret having ordered !
    Not having your courage, perhaps, They are destined to suffer in silence.
    Maybe I'm wrong, and if I'm wrong God forgive me!
    Thanks for your article.

    Don Flavio

    1. dear “confratellino” young … 'In Maronn t'accumpagn ! [Ed Our Lady of accompanying]
      In addition to the priests demented, as the pastor with whom you have had the misfortune of having to deal, there are also the faithful demented, and when demented priest accompanies faithful demented, Vesuvius threatens to less damage, because ‘o cchù bunariello tene ‘a guallera e ‘o scartiello [Ed. suppose that means: are one worse than the].
      One time, to me, They tried to propose to serve the pizzas into the church for the poor. And those that I have proposed it fled running, and since then, yet they continue to run, as far as I know.
      What is perhaps different, is that in our area, Poors, as well as having a sense of their great dignity, They have a sense of the sanctity of churches, and if we did similar things, it is the poor first, and scandalizzerebbero, e griderebbero “sacrilege” !
      I imagine a dinner for the poor in the Church of the Madonna del Carmine in Naples, It runs the risk of being left with an army, first women, that would be to churn out diners and taking blows to the priests who have had a similar idea.

    2. … It is it possible that no one perceives ( or rather who should perceive top ) the discomfort and suffering of our poor priests facing similar things ?

    3. Dear Father Flavio. It was touching to read what you wrote. but I tell: with all the caution and charity as you stay still.

      poor, poor bishop who told you those ugly words, as if he were the one who called you! how sad.

      I am a deacon candidate and I tell you that if I were being said those words so much cry…But sure Jesus himself consolerebbe and would dry the tears of those who cry because His things are mocked and despised.
      I guarantee my poor prayer…you give me your own and that of all the priests who responded to you. pray, fathers, because this poor candidate to become holy…and saint now why waste time in becoming holy is just a peccataccio!
      I count on you!

      and on my knees I implore your blessing: più siete e più me ne viene addosso 🙂

  2. Dear Brother.

    Obviously, beyond from your bishop of the amenities, you know well that I've become a priest for Christ, is proved by the fact that when you get up and present to the People of God the Holy Eucharistic Species, you like all of us say: "Through Christ with Christ and in Christ", none of us is said For the world, in the world and with the world.

    To be told by his bishop "does not make me regret having ordered", It is like hearing your parent say with disappointment tone, "do not make me regret having generated".

    Do not delay in answering that with this poverolatria prevailing, inside our churches are avenute real sacrilegious aberrations. I get emails from confreres from various parts of Italy and from abroad, They have narrated facts that exceed the same human imagination, in this regard by sending photographs and clips from filming baffling.

    This is not – believe me – to have courage or no courage, but to act on the basis of what has been given to, always keeping in mind the admonition of the Apostle Paul Blessed: "One believes he may eat all, the other, that is weak, eats only vegetables. He who eats not despise those who do not eat; those who do not eat, don't misjudge who eats, for God has welcomed him " [cf. Rom 14, 2-3].

    True repentance, therefore, everything should fall on those who followed undaunted to give us such as your bishops, everyone “poor”, “refugees” and unspecified “existential suburbs”, while a growing number of priests have gaps sometimes really rough on the foundations of the deposit of the Catholic faith.

    Unfortunately,, as bitterly as I wrote times: to succeed this kind of bishops without solid doctrinal and pastoral spirit without real training, But the worst soaked sociologisms politically correct, They will not be long before the bishops directly atheists.

    Mutual remembrance in prayer.

  3. Caro Don Flavio.

    The way of 60 years understand when it is difficult to deal with bishops who think and act in this way, and make them less irritating, the better, species for us. But it, a bishop, You can not ask a priest what is in contrast with the Christian common sense and his priestly conscience. There are my brothers who organize dinners in church, shows, dancing etc ... etc ... in the remit of my church are celebrated liturgies and prayer, enough.
    When the previous bishop in pastoral visit he told me that was taken off the balustrade from the presbytery "to make the place Piò consonant with the Council's guidelines", I asked him to tell me where the council had ordered to take down a marble balustrade of the '700.
    The current bishop celebrates the altar with altar girls, I altar altar girls I never wanted, and when some mothers tried to make her go to the altar when there was the bishop to administer Confirmations, I said no. And I must say that, Bishop, He replied to the ladies who would not benefit anyone to embarrass the pastor, because the bishop, at the end of the celebration, It would go away, the pastor, instead, would have remained.
    Maybe playing your odds has been the young age, if for what it can "console" , I tell you that all, Beginning Ministry, we took, often, sound thrashing. However, know that what you say I am sorry for the pastor, I am sorry for Bishop, I regret above all for you, you were right, in requiring compliance with the basic decorum required for a church.
    This stormy season pass, for sure. What we can not know, are the damages that will leave, and how many years, or decades, it will take, to repair some damage ...

  4. In fondo, on this issue, what unites the ultra-traditionalists and the ultra-liberals is a materialist conception of the sacred buildings. The first transform churches into fetishes untouchable, forgetting that in the face of unavoidable necessity the Church knows to put aside one exterior decoration: as Jesus said,, even David and his companions “They entered the house of God and ate the bread” as “the Son of man is Lord of the Sabbath”. The latter have no qualms in turning a house of God which is a pledge of the heavenly in a House of the People, as if God had not made man to bring us back into His House, but quartered among us. The Community's initiative of S. Egidio has no logistical sense, It is purely propaganda nature, and it is motivated by one opportunistic zeal that manages to please both those who have a concept misunderstanding of evangelical poverty and those who bored vivacchia the beautiful world.

  5. Just submit to the Minister of Cultural Heritage the artistic mess, but more just to point out that where it says this or that building (especially the church that) of priests properties, It is never true; churches and other buildings were constructed and maintained by the Christian people to express and nourish the Christian piety, it is above all the soul and dedication of the whole person to God the Creator and Redeemer, and only after derivatamente and has compassion for the poor. The priests have no right to do whatever he pleases. For the rest, ok Article and comments.
