Photos of WYD Liturgical Abuse in Milan Erased from Internet: All Good?

(Milan) The photo that documents the liturgical abuse in Milan has now been deleted from the website of the Archdiocese. It was the Holy Mass celebrated by the Auxiliary Bishop and Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Milan for adolescents of the Diocese prior to their departure for World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro. Some teens had been called by the celebrant to be concelebrants at the altar. In the doxology of the Eucharistic Prayer the boys and girls were faced at the same direction as the priests with chalices and ciboria containing the Body and Blood of Christ, elevating them to the faithful. (see separate report).

Since the art historian and expert on sacred art and architecture of the modern era, Pablo Pomar, wrote about the incident, a lot of photos about the liturgical abuses vanished within 24 hours from the Internet. Be it known that some do not see the abuse as such, the gestures they have planned, but actually mean it, yet just do not want to admit it too openly. "They are exploring how far they can go. If there is resistance, the pictures are just hastily deleted. This is not an attitude worthy of a bishop or priest. You better just leave such crap, because they don't need to run for cover after and delete them. They are just too old for such games," said Pomar. It also raises the question of whether you actually believe that a deed is undone just because you delete the associated images from the Internet.
