"Today, for the first time ever, Anglican Choral Evensong was celebrated at the altar of the Chair of St. Peter in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican.
Anglican Archbishop David Moxon, director of the Anglican center in Rome, presided at the 3 pm service, with music sung by the Choir of Merton College, Oxford. Archbishop Arthur Roche, Vatican Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, preached a homily. Pope Francis did not attend.
Permission for this occasion was granted by Cardinal Angelo Comastri, Archpriest of St. Peter’s Basilica, during a recent meeting with Archbishop Moxon.
The event comes just five months after Pope Francis and Archbishop Justin Welby, Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, celebrated Vespers together at the Basilica of San Gregorio al Celio in Rome.
It also comes on the heels of Pope Francis’ historic visit to the Anglican Communion in the church of All Saints in Rome last month, to mark the 200th anniversary of its founding..." (http://aleteia.org/2017/03/13/first-time-ever-anglican-evensong-sung-in-st-peters-basilica/)
Evensong is defined as "a service of evening prayers, psalms, and canticles, conducted according to a set form." The service took place according to the 1662 Anglican Book of Common Prayer. This Anglican prayer service was allowed in St. Peter's Basilica for the first time ever (for a true Catholic pope would of course never allow such a thing). This is a sacrilege, an outrage, and a mockery of the English Catholic saints and martyrs. It's another example of how the Whore of Babylon, the Vatican II sect, is drunk with the blood of the saints and martyrs (Apocalypse 17:6). It is a notorious endorsement of the Anglican sect and mortally sinful false worship. It further proves that Antipope Francis and his apostate 'hierarchy' profess communion with non-Catholic sects, that he's a notoriously heretical non-Catholic antipope, and that the Vatican II sect is not the Catholic Church but the end-times Counter Church.
