I would love to be able to blame Pope Francis for this, but the fact is that this kind of grotesque nonsense has been prolific for decades, so clearly the Pope himself has little to do with it. These kinds of decisions are made by mid-level bureaucrats who hold their jobs for decades and serve under several popes. In American politics, we call this 'the Deep State', but what do you call the same situation when it happens in the Vatican? The Deep Church?

Thank you good sir.

The buildings were styrofoam from different things:

So sweet!

Reading about the art used by the Vatican this year, I am bowled over thinking of the work to make ceramics of that scale!

Yes,
Just imagine how "bowled over" God and Moses were when the lowly, recently/ previously enslaved, Israelites made a golden calf, thousands of years ago, long before technology advanced to what the Vatican artisans have access to today.
