The Church of the Poor?

This month a
 photo was circulated on Facebook, in which a large amount of older people are seen eating and drinking in the Church.

Mġarr Parish Priest Monsignor Kalcidon Vassallo, defends this abuse by saying that each year a Mass for the sick and the elderly takes place and the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is also administered.

After Mass, this abomination takes place. Quoting Pope Francis, the parish priest said:


"Our C
hurch of the poor and the priests have the smell of the sheep."

Church of the Poor? Nope, alas, Poor Church is more emblematic in this case.
