Regarding “A Question of Faith” on the front page Aug. 10. Now that we have attention on the St. Clare statue, I’m sure the public will not only want to view the statue but find out her story of sainthood.
I believe the Sisters of Mercy should donate the statue to The Rooms along with her history. She really belongs in a museum.
As for crosses and crucifixes, I’m glad the cross was left off the statue. I guess St. Clare must have found it to be too much of a reminder of how violent many in society can be.
I’d like to see
the cross on the side of St. Clare’s be replaced with the Madonna, babe in arms, instead of the violent symbolism of the cross. There’s no getting around the violence and yet we seem to do just that, go figure.
It’s called brain-washing.
