Demonstrators this weekend protested the Vatican-ordered closure of Mary Mother of God Seminary in San Rafael, Argentina.
Protestors gathered Saturday and Sunday outside the diocesan offices, in San Martín Plaza and in front of the city’s cathedral. The protestors prayed the rosary and held signs calling for the diocesan seminary not to be closed.
Signs held by the demonstrators included messages such as “We’re not confused, we’re outraged,” "Enough of the threats, Bishop"; “For the sake of our seminarians, explain the real reason,” "We ask for an Apostolic Commissioner,” and "Holy Father, give us back the seminary and the seminarians."
Car caravans with similar messages also drove through the city, ending at the diocesan offices.
