This was a wreck in slow motion as it unfolded, AND IT WAS LATE IN THE GAME OF WRECKOVATIONS, and you see what they got. I think Pope Benedict tried to intervene to stop it. Will there ever be an after after for this poor cathedral?????
Compare the corona over the traditional altar to the "corona" over the new altar. Is this a joke????? Can you imagine destroying the original altar and corona??????? But Weakland did and with glee. Sick and masochistic to say the least.
The huge nail from the crown of thorns through the crucifix and pointing to the bishop celebrating Mass below reminds me of this scene from the movie "The Omen" where an Anglican priests gets speared!
