የአሜሪካ ውድቀት | የድንግል ማርያም ጠላቶች በካሊፎርኒያ ሐውልቷን አፈረሱ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 6, 2019

ፖሞና ቫሊ በሚባለው አካባቢ ነው ይህ ጽንፈኛ ድርጊት የተፈጸመው። ከወር በፊት በዚሁ የካሊፎርንያ አካባቢ ሌላ ቤተክርስቲያን ላይ ተመሳሳይ ድርጊት ተፈጽሞ ነበር።

ሊበራል ዲሞክራሲ (ለዘብተኝነት) የተባለው ርዕዮተ ዓለም የምዕራባውያኑን ማሕበረሰብ ብልሹ እንዲሆን እና እንዲዘቅጥ አድርጎታል (The Degenerate Society)። እነ ዶ/ር አመድና ደካማ ቲፎዞዎቻቸውም በኢትዮጵያ ተመሳሳይ ሥርዓት እንዲፈጥሩ ነው በሉሲፈራውያኑ የታዘዘዙት። ወዮላቸው!

ለዘብተኛዋ ካሊፎርኒያ ልክ እንደ ሰዶም እና ጎሞራ ናት፤ አንድ ቀን በመሬት መንቀጥቀጥ ክፉኛ መናወጧ አይቀርም።

A vandal appears to be targeting Catholic churches in Pomona Valley, with the most recent attack on a beloved statue at a Chino church.

This is a place we come to feel safe, to feel God’s presence, to worship with our community,” said Marianne Hacker, pastoral administrator at Saint Margaret Mary’s Church.

She’s guarded the chapel for more than 50 years, the entire time the church has been in existence on Central Avenue in Chino.

It brings people comfort,” Hacker said.

But on March 30, a vandal trespassed onto the property and delivered a blow that severed the statue in two.

It’s like a clean cut,” Hacker said.

The damage made the church recall a strikingly similar crime at another local Catholic church.

That’s why I’m thinking it was a sledgehammer like they used at Our Lady Lourdes,” Hacker said.

Just a month ago and three miles away in Montclair, a person was caught on camera hopping onto a planter at Our Lady Lourdes Catholic Church and using what appeared to be a sledgehammer to hack the heads off two of their statues.

Definitely trying to make a statement,” Hacker said.

Saint Margaret Mary’s Church thinks the same person is responsible for both crimes, and now they wonder if the same person destroyed their double pane stained glass window last month.

It’s a picture also of Mary that was just shattered by a huge, huge stone,” Hacker said.

Both churches say they don’t know why they were targeted, but they’re praying for the person who’s trying to hurt them.

We’re always willing to forgive, and we’re always willing to help if there’s anger,” Hacker said.

The church says it will be using part of its renovation budget to purchase a new security camera.

የአሜሪካ ውድቀት | የድንግል ማርያም እና ሕፃን ኢየሱስ ሐውልት ቤተ ክርስቲያን ፊት ለፊት ተሰበረ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 3, 2019

በስታምፎርድ ኮነክቲከት ከመቶ ሃምሳ ዓመታት በፊት በተመሠረተው የቅዱስ ዮሐንስ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ነበር ይህ ጽንፈኛ ተግባር የተፈጸመው። ሐውሉቱ የአርባ አመት እድሜ አለው። ሐውልቱ ክፉኛ ስለተጎዳ ማደስ አይቻልም፤ ስለዚህ በምትኩ ሌላ አዲስ ሐውልት ይቆማል ተብሏል። በሰንበት ዕለትና በፋሲካ ዋዜም ይህ ዓይነት ብልግና በጣም ያሳዝናል፤ በምዕራብ ሃገራት እየመጣ ያለው ትውልድ ከንቱና በጣም አስቀያሚ የሆነ ነው። ኢትዮጵያውያን አደራ፡ የራሳችሁን ያዙ፤ ይህን የጠፋ የምዕራባውያን ትውልድ አትኮርጁ፤ ሊያበረክቱት የሚችሉት መልካም አስተዋጽኦ የለምና።

Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus Statue Smashed at Stamford Church

Police in Connecticut are searching for a vandal or vandals who damaged a statue of Mary and baby Jesus outside a church just weeks before Easter.

Priests at the Basilica of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Stamford are vowing to rebuild better than before.

The statue was literally defaced, the act of vandalism so extreme that Mary’s mouth, chin and cheek are gone, along with Jesus’ entire face.

“That’s a religious symbol, and it should be really respected,” parishioner Ann Marie Brown said. “It’s awful and terrible that someone really tries to destroy it, especially when it’s something that doesn’t move and will never harm you in this world.”

The vandalism was discovered Sunday morning before Masses, and it is believed a rock was used to batter the statue.

One of the parish’s resident priests says he thinks the vandalism is the work of a teenager or young person.

“And they react to things that might make them look a little bit more popular in front of their friends,” Fr. Al Audette said. “Or do something in a way that’s more mischievous than anything else.”

Some parishioners were devastated.

“My heart is broken because this has happened once before, and now it’s happened again,” Mike Piacenza said. ” And I can’t understand why whoever did something like this, in this day and age, just unbelievable.”

The church dates back to the 1850s, and the statue has stood in front of the rectory next door for 40 years.

Because the building is the initial stages of a renovation, surveillance cameras were turned off.

Fr. Audette says he doubts the incident is linked to anger over the ongoing child sex abuse scandal that has rocked the Catholic Church, because he says that might have resulted in more serious damage beyond just the statue.

“We pray for people who do things like this, and being a Roman Catholic, we expect these kinds of actions to happen,” he said. “But we know that it isn’t because people hate the church.”

The statue is damaged beyond repair and will have to be replaced.
