Francis Dublin Mass: Less Than a Quarter of Those Expected Attended

500,000 were expected but less than 130,000 people showed up for Pope Francis' Dublin Mass, TheJournal.ie (August 26) reported.

The Mass was expected to be the main event of the pro-gay World Meeting of Families and one of the largest events ever to be organised in Ireland.

Francis' flop was foreseeable. Since the beginning of his pontificate, Francis has alienated simple and pious Catholics who used to be present at gatherings with the pope.

Now he is left with the liberal establishment which is happy about the damage he does to the Church but, obviously does not care about attending his Masses.

Heard 130k while there. At least he offered part of the con-celebrated New Mass (I think theconsecration) in Latin, and I was notable other priests were worse. PF is poor as he can barely read English judging by what I heard of someone who lived here to learn English.

I was there, heard 130,000. There were sections which were nearly empty.

Irish and Catholic--You ask,"What do want from the Church? Let me answer your question by starting with the following; My family and I spent 7 years in Ireland [-Westmeath. from 1993-2000.] - We witnessed the continuing decline of the church in Ireland in all major cities along with the silly attempts of trying to stem the tide of self destruction by way "novelty Mass's'. Add to this the shocking revelations of sexual abuse by a number of priests and Bishop enablers, then take into account, the dramatic decline of seminarians for the priesthood - the last year we were in Ireland there was 1 application to Maynooth.- plus Ireland's headlong rush to embrace the EU. and multiple referendum's to bring in divorce and the gravest sin of abortion, the answer to your question becomes self evident. Rafal Ovile succintly put it "....free of heresy and comprise with worldliness."

Enough is enough I was there today. This is fake news !!!!!!!! There were hundreds of thousands there, as health and safety had capped the nos to 500K unfairly in my opinion.I am so sad that you have stooped so low as to publish this. May God forgive you You are modern day protestants harming the Church from within not defenders off the Faith
