One of our readers found this photo on the Internet and sent it to us, asking who is the Bishop seated in the first row as a Mass seems to be preparing to start. We do not know the name of the Bishop or the parish. We pass the question on to our readers to see if anyone has the answer.
We only know that on the steps of the presbytery one of the girls is checking to be sure that her hosiery is well fastened to her garter. The naturalness she shows in publicly making such an intimate inspection gives that church an air of a cabaret. The girl seems to be preparing to perform during the Mass along with her three other companions. Undoubtedly the group has the full support of the priest and the Bishop. The latter observes the preparations and chats as if nothing inappropriate were happening.
Under the pretext of adaptation to the modern world, the house of God is being transformed into a house of perdition, below.
