No meal for the Pope

The following is an excerpt from an email just received from one of the co-ordinators of Sharing the Meal. Is it right that the Neocats close down the Meal for WYD so they can conduct their catechesis classes? And how about proclaiming love & compassion from the pulpit in one breath and denying the marginalised & disadvantaged a meal in the next?

The community received word today (not from the parish clergy, but from a newspaper journalist who had contacted the presbytery about the matter) that Mendes had stated that the Meal would probably be allowed to go on, but that he had to consult with the pilgrims to make sure that they would be happy sharing the church with the Meal!
