Tabernacle desecration: French bishop orders Blessed Sacrament’s removal

Desecration occurred in ten parishes since October

Parish: In response to the desecration of ten parishes since October, including five on February 6-7, the bishop of Bellay-Ars has ordered the Blessed Sacrament removed from the tabernacles of all parish churches and chapels.

The Blessed Sacrament, Bishop Pascal Roland decreed, must be kept in a more secure location, and tabernacle doors must be kept open to indicate that the Eucharist is not present, reported

The Blessed Sacrament, he added, may be returned to tabernacles temporarily for adoration if a sufficient number of faithful are present.

The “only exception” to the decree is in the case of a “well-secured” metallic tabernacle with a resistant lock.
