We now live near a Korean Catholic Church. Over the past week or so I’ve been watching the construction of this shrine. I was surprised to see a mummified Mary when I drove past yesterday.
This is one of those areas that is hard for me to understand about Catholics. What is it about iconography that is so appealing? I hate to say it, but this picture pretty much sums up the whole thing for me. Veneration of the dead through icons is not life giving but deadly.
