Inside a Catholic cathedral, police removed a small group praying the rosary aloud for disrupting a service that was celebrating the Protestant Reformation.
The Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula in Brussels, Belgium was holding a service together with Steven Fuit, president of the United Protestant Church in Belgium.
However, a group of twelve young Catholics disrupted the service by interlocking arms and reciting the rosary aloud in French towards the rear of the cathedral, preventing Fuit from beginning. At first they stood but eventually knelt as they continued praying for over 40 minutes.
Eventually, police broke up the group. However, one of the members remained and had to be carried out of the cathedral.

The group also passed out a pamphlet in French which was translated to English:
“Our Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula is a Catholic building built by our fathers to be a House of God, for the celebration of the holy Mass, for the praise of God and the saints. The occupation of our cathedral by Protestants to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation is therefore a profanation. Indeed, the so-called Reformation was really a revolt: under the pretext of combating abuses, Luther rebelled against the divine authority of the Catholic Church, denied numerous Truths of the Faith, abolished the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Sacraments, rejected the necessity of good works and the practice of Christian virtues. Finally, he attacked the veneration of the Virgin Mary and the saints, the religious life and monastic vows. This terrible revolution was a great tragedy for Christian society and for the salvation of souls. And the Lutheran errors are still heresies today because the Truth is eternal.”
i was really happy to see those young Catholics are coming forward to protect their catholic faith and their church in Europ. that is what the church needs today.In Europ young people are going away from the church day by day, because of different reasons.Only old men and women are there for the holy masses and services. Even though some have interpreted those prayer services are for unity,those things will divide the Catholics more and more. Don,t let Devil to play havoc among you. Catholic church has lot of challenges today…..to over come
Blessed Mother please help the people return to praying the rosary, see that it gets put back on the radio so families can sit around and pray together like it used to be. Thank you for listening..
