We recently moved to a new parish and were instated last week. I was walking around it today looking around and saw a statue of Mary hidden in a back corner…
I asked why it was shoved back there and was told that it had been a bone of contention for over 17 years!!!
basically some of the people in the church move her into a prominent position and then others come along at various times and move her out of sight lol…protestant church obviously!
I just thought it was such a literal example of the debates going on within the church…physically moving Mary around the building depending on who wanted her to focus on and who didn’t.
Have any other people come accross examples like this? That show the physical effects of debate within the church?
It just made me laugh that this saga has been going on for 17 years but nobody dares throw it away… they simple argue through their actions lol.
