authorized by Pope Francis and the Vatican to conclude —
as the finale — the celebration for the Year of Mercy
(combined with Pope Francis's Environmental Encyclical
Archbishop Rino Fisichella, the president
of the Pontifical Council for the “New”
Evangelization (rather than the “old”
that emphasized Christ ... ) described the event as:
“unique for its genre and
for the fact that it is being displayed for the first time on
such a significant backdrop.
These illuminations will present images inspired of Mercy, of
humanity, of the natural world, and of climate changes.”
and tell us where you find any images of “inspired of Mercy”.
Most likely they will offend you as verging
on sacrilege; they will challenge your imagination in any attempt to
accommodate these images with God and Holy Mother Church.
Note that there is not one single
sacred image: not of Christ, of His Holy Mother Mary, or of
anything remotely tangential to Christianity

From all appearances, we will soon be worshipping at the zoo.
It was, in a single word, demonic.
Francis is either mad or evil. Perhaps ... indeed, in all likelihood
