Sacred Article Yard Sales by the Catholic Church

"Faithful Catholics who struggled to provide the financial resources necessary to build a new Church a hundred years ago would be rolling over in their graves today, if they could see what has happened. Even more egregious are those situations where a person donated money to buy a specific item in memory of a loved one- - only to have that item, be it a stained glass window, statue, chalice, baptistery or anything else sold. To state that such donors would be unhappy, if they saw the item they donated adorning a local bar, is an understatement of gigantic proportions."

The sin that has occurred in this behavior is overwhelming to say the least....I've experienced this situation first hand and it was quite painful and very difficult. So very sad.
