Bishops Support Banning Christmas - While Swimming Pools Reopen

A second Covid-19 curfew prohibiting all worship is extended until January 15 by the Belgian government.

Christmas Masses are forbidden while non-essential shops, museums and swimming pools were allowed to open.

Nevertheless, the Belgian Bishops expressed in a December 1 statement their “solidarity with the government’s measures.” They expressed their wish to engage in "dialogue" on the resumption of public Masses.

The bishops encourage Catholics – no sarcasm intended - to “visit the crib” and to say a private prayer.

Ah, the EU at its finest. tobacco shops are open and the Euro-Bishops are still afraid of COVID. This whole farce has finally ripped their masks off and what's underneath is nothing Christian, much less Catholic.

They stopped Easter, now they are trying to stop Christmas.
They are taking away everything what we need...
