Replica of famous statue of Sacred Heart destroyed in Madrid

.- Last week a group of unknown delinquents chopped the head off of a statue of the Sacred Heart located in the gardens of the hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida in Madrid.

According to the Spanish daily “La Razon,” the nearly five-foot statue is a replica of the famous statue that sits atop the Cerro de los Angeles in Madrid and was made with stones from that statue, which was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.

“When the faithful came to attend Mass on Tuesday morning they found the statue on the ground,” said parish secretary Alejandro Diaz.  “Therefore the attack must have happened on Monday night or early Tuesday morning,” he said, adding that the attackers smashed the pedestal upon which the statue was standing several times in order to break it.”
