post-conciliar "signs"
#21
If there's one thing I've learned from my experiences with Catholicism, is that the Church uses many different ways to signify different aspects of a certain 'thing.'

In the East, certain aspects of Catholic doctrine may be more emphasized than they are in the West and vice versa. It's not a matter of 'this or that' but both.

The Gospels themselves are an example of this. The Synoptic Gospels focus more on Christ's humanity while John's focuse's on His Divinity. Well, which are right? Both are!

There is also no reason to pit the modern style of crucifix with the old. Both represent different, but equally true, aspects of the Crucifixition. It is the ultimate paradox: the greatest act of love as well as the greatest blasphemy.

If it personally doesn't fit your taste well than that's one thing. But there is no justification for accusing it of being 'bad', 'wrong' or even 'Satanic.'

It has it, it is just narrow to fit.

Take a look at some Spanish crucifix's. They're quite traditional - and quite gory. Scripture talks about how Christ didn't even look like a human being upon His crucifixion.

I'm very familiar with traditional crucifixes, spanish or otherwise, thank you. All of them represent Our Lord with dignity and realism (wounds, blood, etc.).

None of them is like the Christ in the bent crucifix, though.

We should pray for better days to come.

How does making something show it is not evil? or is it the maker?
