@b3rants_ How is he carrying the blessed sacrament, I think everything is now a joke in this country
@aneterr_a_ Can you imagine touching the blessed sacrament with such filthy hands???? The church and things of the church are no longer regarded as sacred entities. It is finished!!😢 Our priests are bec.oming huge jokes!
@janeamaada_What is the world turning into exactly? Which day did Catholics begin to allow anyone touch the blessed sacrament. No values left anymore in anything sad asf

Just imagine the impudence 😩😩😩😩see who you gave this blessed sacrament 😢chukwu aj
@missomaeze_This is so wrong! looks like a movie though. That doesn’t look like what a typical alter in the catholic church would look like. Plus he’s in Plain clothes. No Reverend father would let him do that! If not, the POPE must hear this. lol
@bizzys3112_This is not Catholic Church a blessed sacrament can not be open and people will be standing with members standing at the alter it fake
