Maybe God Doesn't Like Jesus Afterall

DENVER (AP) — A 22-foot-tall statue of Jesus at the Mother Cabrini Shrine in the foothills west of Denver was damaged by lightning over the weekend but can be repaired, nuns at the shrine said.

 

One arm and a hand were broken off the marble statue and a foot was damaged during a storm on Saturday.

 

A cost estimate for the repairs should be completed within a week, said Sister Bernadette Casciano, administrator of the shrine for the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In the meantime, a fund was being set up for donations for the repairs.

 

The statue, which stands on an 11-foot-tall pedestal, was sculpted by an Italian artist and brought from Italy in five sections in 1954.

 

The shrine is named Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first American citizen canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.

It's the graven images he doesn't like. See the Ten Commandments. Maybe this will get the message across....

 

Doesn't look too much like it though--not with all this talk going on about repairs and cost estimate. It seems this graven image must be fixed, maybe it somehow reflects god's glory.

 

Only bug in that soup is that god must first exist. One thing we know--that graven image exists. Whether or not the same applies to God, Jesus, and hell--those are the Big Three we don't know about for sure.

"Don't look for any religious symbolism here - it was only a freak act of Mother Nature, says Sister Ilaria."

 

If Jesus' face appears in a waffle, however, it's a pure sign from God!

Heh, it looks like Jesus and Mary aren't the only ones that magically impose their faces onto objects:

Actually, now that I think of it, didn't Jerry Garcia's face appear on a piece of food once? Catholics might want to start praying to him too, just in case their god decided to make him a saint. :lol:
