Anti-Catholicism in Austria: Blasphemous attack on Mary

The lower Austrian main building of government (No-Landhaus) is hosting an exhibition which displays Mary, the Mother of Jesus, covered in a condom and sperm.  See here.  Please offer the following prayer of reparation:



Most glorious Virgin Mary,
Mother of God and our Mother,
turn thine eyes in pity upon us,
miserable sinners;
we are sore afflicted by the many evils that surround us in this life,
but especially do we feel our hearts break within us
upon hearing the dreadful insults and blasphemies uttered against thee,
O Virgin Immaculate.
O how these impious sayings offend the infinite Majesty of God
and of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ!
How they provoke His indignation
and give us cause to fear the terrible effects of His vengeance!
Would that the sacrifice of our lives
might avail to put an end to such outrages and blasphemies;
were it so, how gladly we should make it,
for we desire, O most holy Mother,
to love thee and to honor thee with all our hearts,
since this is the will of God.
And just because we love thee,
we will do all that is in our power to make thee honored and loved by all men.
In the meantime do thou,
our merciful Mother,
the supreme comforter of the afflicted,
accept this our act of reparation
which we offer thee for ourselves
and for all our families,
as well as for all who impiously blaspheme thee,
not knowing what they say.
Do thou obtain for them from Almighty God the grace of conversion,
and thus render more manifest and more glorious thy kindness,
thy power and thy great mercy.
May they join with us in proclaiming thee blessed among women,
the Immaculate Virgin and most compassionate Mother of God.

3 Hail Mary...

Is that supposed to be a demon next to Our Lady? It sure looks like one to me. Immaculate Heart of Mary, we love you. Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on the misguided soul who created this blasphemous attack.

Thanks for the notice Paul. This stuff just doesn't let up. We'll keep praying down here. God bless.

It is not a demon. It is the mummy (or more likely a model of)Ramesses, one of the Pharoes of Egypt.

Paul Anthony Melanson said...

Ramses mummy? Photos of Ramses remains would suggest otherwise:


And why would the "artist" place Ramses mummy near the Blessed Virgin Mary? What is the context?

I have no idea Paul. Ramses is a brand name of Condoms available in Austria though. Is that a conincidence? I don't know.

The "artist" tries to explain the context at which I confess leaves we even more confused.

Thanks anonymous. I didn't know that Ramses is a brand of condom in Austria. There are some very troubled souls out there. Thanks for the info.
