Jesus: “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer’; but you make it a den of robbers.”
Origen: Bishops who commit Churches to those they ought not, are they that sell the doves, that is, the grace of the Holy Spirit, whose seats Christ overturns.
Can. 1210 Only those things which serve the exercise or promotion of worship, piety, or religion are permitted in a sacred place; anything not consonant with the holiness of the place is forbidden.
"Churches will be closed or desecrated"

en.news A sculpture of a blue gorilla with male human genitals is being displayed in the church Saint Pierre d'Arène in Nice, France, until September 15.
The abomination is part of an exhibition of 56 pieces. The exhibition has been a wish of the local parish-priest, Father Gil Florini.
The gorilla was produced by Patrick Schumacher. It cannot be shown, for instance, on Facebook because it is x-rated, but children in the church seemingly can be exposed to it. Update: The naked gorilla was covered after the protests but the sacrilege was not suspended.
“ . . . The ‘abomination of desolation’ has been wrought in many Catholic churches by heretics and apostates who have broken altars, scattered relics of martyrs and desecrated the Blessed Sacrament. At the time of the French Revolution a lewd woman was seated upon the altar of the cathedral in Paris and worshipped as the goddess of reason. Such things but faintly foreshadow the abominations that will desecrate churches in those sorrowful days when Antichrist will seat himself at the altar to be adored as God. Father E. Sylvester Berry
