Thousands attend Mass of reparation in Argentina

.- Thousands of Catholics in Argentina gathered on the feast of the Immaculate Conception to take part in a Mass at the parish of Our Lady of the Pilar in reparation for an art exhibit which displayed blasphemous works against Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary.

The pastor, Father Romulo Puiggari, who presided at the Mass, told the faithful, “Let us commit ourselves to pray and work for a decrease in the offenses that our Lord Jesus receives.”

“The Church lives on a sorrowful, spectacular and magnificent earth, in a time which has all the features of a dark night.  The response of the Church to this dark night is ‘to be love’; only love is credible.”

He said the celebration of the Immaculate Conception was taking place in a “very particular” context because of the blasphemous exhibit, but the episode has resulted in a many Catholics deepening their love for Jesus Christ and the Church.

The parish of Our Lady of the Pilar is next to the old Franciscan convent where the controversial exhibit is being shown.
