Latest Sacrilege in Conciliar Church: Pagan Terracotta Army usurps Naples Basilica
Another day, another heart-rending aberration in the supposed "Church of the New Pentecost."
Over 300 pieces (including 170 statues of warriors) of the famous "Terracotta Army" created in 210 B.C. to keep guard over Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huangdi's tomb, are currently on display in the nave of Naples' Basilica of the Holy Ghost (Basilica dello Spirito Santo). The exhibit began on October 24, 2017 and runs through January 28, 2018. It includes various audio-visual materials to accompany and explain the display.
While the beautiful Basilica has suffered virtual abandonment by the clergy and the faithful of the Naples Archdiocese in recent years, it has not been "deconsecrated." Without a canonical reduction "to profane use," this church remains a consecrated house of God. There is no justification whatsoever in the Basilica hosting a pagan exhibit. Learning of the 12€ admission fee to view the Chinese statues, we cannot help but recall the words of Our Lord seeing the profanation of the temple: "It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves." (John 21:12).
It is unimaginable that the Terracotta Army's "invasion" took place without the "surrender" or [at least tacit] approval of Naples' Archbishop, Crescenzio Cardinal Sepe. This sad development is demonstrative of a lack of cooperation with the graces of the Holy Ghost, Titular of the desecrated Basilica: a refusal of His Gifts of Wisdom, Piety and Fear of the Lord.
Let us join in making reparation for this crime: Jesus, mercy! Mary, help!
