Marco Gusmini was killed instantly and one other man taken to hospital, Italian media reported.

Part of the 30m-high (100ft) sculpture collapsed at a ceremony ahead of the Pope's canonisation. John Paul II and his predecessor, Pope John XXIII, are due to be declared saints on Sunday.

  • And, this is a sign from God that JP2 is not a Saint. His so called
    invalid canonization is a travesty and a sacrilege.

  • Disgusting crucifix anyway.  Curved so Jesus faces the ground.



    Don't approach profane works of religious "art" and you won't be crushed by them.

    Yes, let's not forget that a man died. :pray:
    "This principle is most certain: The non-Christian cannot in any way be Pope. The reason for this is that he cannot be head of what he is not a member. Now, he who is not a Christian is not a member of the Church, and a manifest heretic is not a Christian, as is clearly taught by St. Cyprian, St. Athanasius, St. Augustine, St. Jerome, and others. Therefore, the manifest heretic cannot be Pope." -- St. Robert Bellarmine

    I'm sure the day will come when that hideous monstrosity in Paul VI Hall comes tumbling down.

    Agreed.

    But God died too.  And images of His death on the cross should be dignified.

  • "The 600kg (1,320lb) statue of Jesus Christ snapped off the crucifix and crushed the man"

    Obviously, putting Jesus face down was a bad idea.

    Chinese bolts made from recycled soda pop cans are clearly not as good as German steel ones.

  • Thank you so very much for calling this to our attention, Truth is Eternal.  And thanks to Greg for the photo.  Otherwise I might have thought it was a Catholic Crucifix instead of a sacrilege. And Thurifer, for reminding us about Lourdes.  

    Might as well add the destructive earthquake which struck Assisi...Christ have mercy on us sinners.

  • Where did the idea of bent downward facing crucifix come from? Some high schooler's remedial art class project?  There's nothing in scripture, history, or tradition to support this rendition, is there?

  • On EWTN this morning, some woman was relating a story of how she had been praying to have a son who would be a priest.

    She apparently asked John Paul II to pray for her during an audience she had with him.  She was already around 40 years old at this time.

    He did so.  Several years later, she suddenly became pregnant, apparently on the very day that John Paul II died (April 1 or 2, depending on who you ask, 2005).

    She said that she knew immediately that John Paul II had gone straight to heaven and had interceded for this miracle.

    She kept going on and on about how this was due to the miraculous intercession of John Paul II.

    She later mentioned that she had a miscarriage about 4 months into the pregnancy.

    But she's convinced that when she dies she'll find her miscarried son in heaven waiting for her as a priest (both Baptism of Desire and Holy Orders of Desire I suppose).

    To me this sounds like an anti-miracle from John Paul II.

  • Did you ever see the inside of the church at Nowa Huta that Bishop Wojtyla was famous for building (well before Vatican II)?  I find it grotesque and absolutely disturbing.

    She asks for a son who will be a priest. Her prayer is not answered. Then she concludes that there was a miracle from John Paul II.
