IS IT A SIN TO BUY SCALPED TICKETS TO SEE THE POPE?

 

What’s the hottest ticket in the U.S.?

It’s duckets to see the Pope on his upcoming trip to the United States.

Pope Benedict XVI is making his first American visit starting next Tuesday. The Pope will make a five-day visit to New York and Washington D.C. The trip is being hailed as a “once in a lifetime opportunity” and tickets for the Pope’s Mass at National’s Park in Washington on Thursday are being described as “impossible to buy.”

In fact, the official position put out by the Archdiocese of Washington is SCALPING PASSES FOR THE EVENT IS NOT ONLY ILLEGAL, BUT A SIN. 

The Catholic Church has also written sites like Craigslist ordering them to remove items for scalped Papal tickets.

The Church has even come up with a website for the Pope’s  upcoming visit:
