On the box
And I liked that programme too
I happened to miss this episode. This outrage is along the lines of what another usually good show, ‘Lonely Planet/GlobeTrekker’, did with the actual Blessed Sacrament in the episode about Rome.

No-one secular cares about Protestant Communion, Jews are a protected class (unless, as in the vicious ‘Seinfeld’, it’s Jews making fun of themselves) and the Orthodox form of the faith is only useful for them as props in ethnic jokes so that leaves...

The last acceptable prejudice indeed.

O Lord, my God and Saviour, Who, as Thou didst endure for our salvation the outrages of those who crucified Thee, so now endurest the irreverences of those who "discern Thee not" rather than withhold Thy Sacred Presence from our Altars; grant us Thy grace to bewail, with true sorrow of heart, the indignities committed against Thee; and with devout love to repair, as far as lies in our power, the many dishonours Thou still continuest to receive in this Adorable Mystery; Who livest and reignest, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God, world without end. Amen.
