Was Francis’ Basilica Lunch the “Highest Exaltation of Charity”?

Radio Vatican interviewed Father Antonio Spadaro in an effort to justify Francis’ Basilica lunch. According to Spadaro, “The fact that Pope Francis had lunch in this sacred building is the highest exaltation of charity and, therefore, the fundamental principle of Christianity.”

If this were true, then every church needs to be transformed into a restaurant, hospital or hostel. One would even have to ask whether it is legitimate to have churches which are only churches.

Spadaro should read what Acts 6,2 says about this:  Then the twelve calling together the multitude of the disciples, said: It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

[Also, Matthew 21,13: And he says to them: It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves.]
