    The doors of a Gothic revival church in the 15th Arrondissement of Paris were barricaded with pews this morning in an attempt to prevent the demolition of the building to make way for a car park and apartment building. Protestors including a Catholic priest and the local mayor were abused by riot police clearing the building ready for the bulldozers after the religious association which owns it decided to redevelop the site.

    Correction: an earlier version of this article described the priest as a Gallican priest. This was wrong: while the church was formerly used by the Gallican church, it has more recently been used by priests of the Institut du Bon-Pasteur which is in good standing with the Church. We apologise for the mistake.

    A Catholic priest has been dragged out of Mass by Paris police in an evacuation of a church marked for demolition, according to reports.

    Protesters barricaded themselves inside the church of St Rita last night. Dozens joined a sit-in protest this morning against the demolition of the church. It is to be replaced by a parking lot and housing, a decision which has angered many parishioners and other locals.

    Twelve cars of riot police were called to the site this morning to force protesters out. Pictures emerged of a priest being forcibly dragged out of Mass.

    Since 2015, the church has been used by priests of the Institut du Bon-Pasteur.

    Mining work has started in preparation to knock down the church.

    Dominique Philippe, a priest of the Gallican church, which has previously used St Rita’s although the Gallicans are not part of the Catholic Church, has said that if the demolition plans go ahead, priests will have to celebrate Mass on the street.

    St Rita is known as Paris’s “animal church”: pets are allowed in, and the church holds a Mass at which pets, including camels and parrots, are encouraged to come for a blessing.


    The dragging of a priest out of the church – according to some reports, while saying Mass – has caused uproar on Twitter after images emerged, with the hashtag #SainteRita being used thousands of times.

    Some Twitter users said the eviction was especially shocking after the murder of Fr Jacques Hamel last week.
    For a small gain they travel far; for eternal life many will scarcely lift a foot from the ground. - Thomas A Kempis

  • France has abandoned God, and they welcome those who dissolve the Lord Jesus Christ - those who are of Anti-Christ, and they have the gall to wonder why they've been getting attacked by terrorists so much...
    Blessed be the Lord my God, who teacheth my hands to fight, and my fingers to war. ~ Psalms 143:1 (Douay-Rheims)

  • Yes, he was a priest from the Institute of the Good Shephered that Benedict XVI created.

  • The French trad Catholics are particularly good at dramatizing such attacks.

    Their Catholic history is loaded with battles against different forms of judeo-masonry where "barricades" are employed.

    Pulling a priest out of the middle of Mass simply cries to Heaven for justice.
    Maybe this imagery will help convert some of the sleeping sheep?
    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi
