When Fr. Chrystian Shankar, a priest serving at the diocesan shrine dedicated to Friar Galvão in Divinopolis, learned from a mother in the community that her child had been given classes in school on polyamory, he denounced the practice in his June 18 sermon.
The video of his sermon went viral and drew heavy criticism from professionals in education and psychology, who said they were offended by his remarks.
The faithful decided to rally around their priest, and a few days later as he was about to begin Eucharistic Adoration they displayed signs saying “I support Fr. Chrystian.”
Fr. Shankar began the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and thanked him for the show of support that he said “was a response from God.”
