Catholic priest in Holland suspended for playing football inside the Church

On Sunday 11 July, Pastor Paul Vlaar of Obdam celebrated the Holy Eucharist in the spirit of the Football World Cup.

Bishop Joseph Punt of Haarlem-Amsterdam has suspended the parish priest. Father Vlaar acted as a goalkeeper during Mass, standing in front of a goal as a parishioner kicked a soccer ball down the aisle.

My comment:

Revelation 22:11

Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong; let him who is vile continue to be vile; let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy.”
