A Mass broadcast to Catholics across Belarus has disappeared from the airwaves amid political upheaval following a disputed presidential election.
The Sunday morning Mass was broadcast from the Cathedral of the Holy Name of Mary in the capital, Minsk, by the largest nationwide radio channel in Belarus.
Fr. Anthony Klimantovich, the cathedral rector, said that the Mass did not appear on the radio schedule for September, the website of the Catholic Church in Belarus reported Sept. 9.
“Why is there no Mass on the radio? This is definitely not our fault and not for technical reasons,” he said.
“Holy Mass is still celebrated in the cathedral at 8.15 a.m. every Sunday, the equipment is working properly and the signal goes, but there is no broadcast.”
