Rainbow instead of Cross

The once-beautiful Church of Schenkenfelden in Austria gutted in the years after the Council. Something has gone very wrong when the baptismal font instead of being at the entrance to the Church has been placed where the tabernacle should be. The Cross has been replaced by a rainbow (presumably signifying the Covenant). Christian baptism is no longer a regeneration from the debacle of original sin, but an entry into an elite. Cross and Tabernacle are now removed from the sanctuary and placed to one side.  Posted by Picasa

Hail the Cross, our only Hope!
