Perfect for Easter: Francis Wraps Baldachin of St Peter's Basilica

Just before Easter, the famous baldachin in St Peter's Basilica was wrapped, supposedly for a restoration that has been going on since January.

The baldachin will be washed, repaired and restored for €700,000, not a lot of money for such a large object designed by the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

The baldachin, which has been over St Peter's since 1634, is being restored for the first time in more than 250 years and will be covered by scaffolding for most of 2024.

In its current state, the baldachin looks like a cardboard box from a delivery service to Western consumers, or, from an Islamic point of view, like a kind of Kaaba.

He's getting laughably petty.

A while back there were pictures showing in what shabby shape the baldachin was in. The priest Francis appointed in charge of St. Peter's basilica was notorious for his negligence & arrogant behavior. So negative press complaints got results - but you'd think they start this AFTER the holy solemnities.

Vatican Basilica: the result of the management of Fr. Mauro Gambetti - Silere Non Possum
The restoration was supposed to start 20 days ago, but still nothing, the money won't be enough and the costs will increase, and they will go to friends chosen by those who manage St. Peter's BasilicaMore

Wow, Looks diabolical... how appropriate for the false prophet Bergoglio and his anti Easter

It's Easter, the Resurrection of our Lord and we should all strive to be kind; but, being kind, towards the man dressed in white and 'wrapped' in totally disgusting/gnostic vestments, is an impossibility. Moreover, he and his pagan rainbow clan are ruining some major masterpieces of Italian Artists. The Italians in Rome and all over should revolt and send him to the end of the earth!
