Series of Chapels, Shrines Desecrated in Austria; Vandals Behead Statues,Burn Bibles and Murals

Police are hunting for vandals after a series of chapels and shrines were desecrated within a few days in northern Austria, the Breitbart website reports today (January 6, 2017).

Statues have been beheaded, Bibles burned, and sacred images destroyed since the New Year in the Innviertel region on the Bavarian border.

Among the chapels vandalized was one in the town of Auerbach, with vandals smashing the glass guarding two Virgin Mary statues and stealing at least 22 murals, which they burned.

That chapel is visited by about 20 people per day due to the belief of healing qualities of a nearby well.
