Utrecht Cathedral Will Not Be Sold - Problems Unresolved

Utrecht Cardinal Willem Eijk has cancelled plans to close and sell his 15th century Cathedral, reports trouw.nl (March 2).

Eijk reacted to a storm of protests. The problems leading to the original decision - a lack of faithful and funds - remains unresolved.

The Netherlands were considered the example of how to implement Second Vatican Council. Today the country is a Catholic wasteland.

The beautiful Churches built by our ancestors being sold off by the filthy modernist sodomite infiltration to pay legal fees and hush money and to fund lavish flaming lifestyles.

If they don't sell the church, they might sell the uncomfortable wooden kneeling benches as they did in the same diocese in a catholic church Xaverius close by Utrecht in Amersfoort. Here is a picture before and after. I took the last picture last Friday (look at the comfortable chairs now). Better sitting comfort and an improvement respect to the way the catholic mass was performed in older times will definitively attract more churchgoers. According to the newspaper. So they are quickly loosing the spirit of Catholicism I would judge.
