CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Antonio Napolioni of Cremona criticized his priest for “failure to comply with current emergency regulations prohibiting the celebration of Mass in the presence of the faithful,” while Cardinal Angelo Becciu, the prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, criticized the police for interrupting Mass (Italian-language link). Similar police actions throughout Italy took place a week before.
