A New Low


Someone in Iowa evidently decided to sell a Eucharist that he claims was consecrated by Pope John Paul II. His explanation:"I am not a Catholic and do not believe I'm going to [H]ell for selling this collectible..." Source

The diocese of Sioux City, Iowa contacted e-Bay and had the transaction terminated. One man, a Knight of Columbus from California who wanted to remain anonymous, put in a $2000 bid to keep it out of the hands of people who would use it for blasphemous purposes. The bid never finished, so the man never had to pay, but sir, you have my finest compliments, and a hearty Aggie WHOOP!
