1,000 attend Mass of Reparation at Madrid university chapel
March 21, 2011
Nearly 1,000 people attended a special Mass of Reparation in a chapel at a university in Madrid on March 18, a week after a group of students had invaded the chapel to shout blasphemies.
Bishop Cesar Franco, a Madrid auxiliary, presided at the Mass, explaining that it was “in reparation for the evil committed, through the redemptive action of Christ, who gives Himself for the forgiveness of sins.” He said that the invasion had been an “incomprehensible” assault on religious freedom and civility.
