He is blaspheming. It is known that one of Our Lady's Titles is "Ark of the New Covenant"
As the Old Ark was considered too holy to be touched - so is Our Lady
The Old Ark contained the Manna, the Word of God on Stone (The 10 Commandments) and the Priestly Rod of Aaron. that came back to life [www.usccb.org/bible/scripture.cfm
Our Lady (The New Ark) contained the LIVING Manna, The Word of God made FLESH, and "the Branch" (Messianic title) who would die but come back to life [www.usccb.org/bible/scripture.cfm
Now, reading the Old Testament, you can clearly see that the Ark of the Covenant was carried around on a bier, in a similar way to the way Icons representing the Holy Virgin are transported on Her Feast Days outside the Churches.
It is found that so sacrosanct is the Holy Virgin - that it is known that she was perpetually a Virgin - due to her being the chosen vessel to bear the Son of the Most HIgh God.
Now Francis clearly does not venerate The Holy Mother of Our Lord sufficiently - He makes known his preference to believe & promote heretical (Blasphemous) teachings contrary to the Roman Catholic Traditional Faith. How can he be a validly elected Pope? Even BORGIA - reputed to be one of the most troublesome Popes had no quarrel with any of the Church's Teachings - and it is known that a valid Pope NO MATTER WHAT HE TAUGHT PREVIOUSLY, tends to become Orthodox in his teachings when made Pope. It is a clear case of proof being given that Francis is not legitimately elected. I don't know about you - but I'd rather not be cast into Hell by Our Lord for following a Pope who's own errors promote the wrath of God. His teachings are base and not-spiritual in tenour (it's clearly NOT the Holy Ghost he takes his inspiration from) God help those who do not SEE that - he is in danger of being struck by Lightning.
Regarding the Holiness of the Ark.
"We observe in Holy Scripture, for instance, Uzziah, who died when he touched the ark of the covenant, which was arguably the holiest object in the Old Testament, even though he was only trying to prevent it from falling:
2 Samuel 6:6-7(RSV) And when they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled.  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there because he put forth his hand to the ark; and he died there beside the ark of God.
Others died by merely looking
inside the ark:
1 Samuel 6:19 And he slew some of the men of Beth-she'mesh, because they looked into the ark of the LORD; he slew seventy men of them, and the people mourned because the LORD had made a great slaughter among the people. (cf. Ex 33:20). "
The Blessed Virgin Mary became, in effect, the New Holy of Holies, where God specially resides. But in the case of Mary, God is more present than He ever was in the tabernacle and temple, because now He is there physically
, as a man, as well. Mary is the ark of the new covenant (as the Church fathers called her) and Mother of God (the Son)"www.ncregister.com/…/perpetual-virgi…
