A friend here in Baton Rouge sends me these images of a Jesus statue outside of St. Joseph Catholic Cathedral in Baton Rouge, the mother church of the diocese. The desecration was discovered on Thursday morning. I have blotted out the f-word [Images omitted from The Catacombs but can be found on link above.]
I do not for one second believe that a black person desecrated this statue of Jesus Christ. Not here in Louisiana, at least. This has not made the local news. My source is a local Catholic friend who confirmed that the photos are real.
That anybody, of any race, would do such a thing is execrable. The times are evil. We can expect a lot more of this kind of thing.
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Archbp. Lefebvre 1980
