“When a coin in the coffer rings, a soul from purgatory springs.”
That little diddy is what Johan Tetzel sang which so vexed Martin Luther that he went nailed thoughts on the door at Wittenburg and sparked the Protestant Reformation. The Romanist Church has always been a prostitute to the highest bidder. But Pope Francis is taking the whole ‘Whore of Babylon’ thing to the next level.
For the low-low price of only $155k USD, someone can purchase a luxury private Mass with the Pope himself through the Rolls-Royce Corporation.
As Religion News Service reports, the private luxury Mass is being advertised on the Whispers App that is only available to owners of Rolls-Royce automobiles.
Apparently it takes owning a Rolls just to get invited to such as shindig. If only there was a Scripture about showing preferential religious treatment to the rich.
Oh, right. There is.
For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? (James 2:2-4)
The advertisement says, “The Pontiff himself will personally provide over and celebrate a private Holy Mass with you. He will administer the Holy Sacrament by his very own hands, leaving you and your guest(s) with personal blessing that will be unique to each of you.”
