    Vandals Strike Again: Statue of St. Junipero Serra Decapitated and Splashed With Red Paint
    Written by  Warren Mass



    Under cover of darkness [and under cover of September 11th!], sometime between midnight and 6 a.m. on September 11, vandals decapitated and splashed red paint on a statue of St. Junipero Serra at the Old Santa Barbara Mission in California.
    The Los Angeles Times reported that the towering statue of Serra had stood at the foot of a staircase leading into the mission for years. The report noted that Santa Barbara statue is one of several of Serra that have been defaced since Pope Francis elevated the friar to sainthood two years ago. In most instances, the statutes were splashed with paint, toppled over, or decapitated.
    Serra founded a mission in San Diego in 1769 and would later personally found another eight of 21 Spanish missions in California from San Diego to San Francisco. The Santa Barbara mission was founded by Padre Fermín Lasuén on December 4, 1786, the feast day of Saint Barbara.
    Serra, who was canonized as a saint by Pope Francis on September 23, 2015, is known as the “Apostle of California.” At the canonization ceremony, Pope Francis said, “Junipero sought to defend the dignity of the native community, to protect it from those who had mistreated and abused it.”

  • Thanks for posting on this Neil.

    It is another manifestation of judeo-Talmudic "social media" rising.

    The jews are the communist, who seeded the errors of Russia, that Our Lady of Fatima warned us about.

    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi
