Holy Week Blasphemy in Innsbruck Church

LifeSiteNews, Martin M. Barillas: Bishop Hermann Glettler of Austria gave permission for an artist to install a salvaged corpus from a crucifix that serves as a clock within the sanctuary of the historic Spitalskirche in downtown Innsbruck.

From the hands of artist Manfred Erjautz, 53, and dubbed “Your Jesus,” the upside-down wooden corpus projects from a mechanism on a shaft that is embedded in the torso. The severed arms of the sculpted icon of the Crucified mark the minutes and seconds on the timepiece. There is no clock face in the installation on the wall of the historic baroque Spitalskirche that continues throughout Lent. Report is here.
