Bonn, Germany: Violence Against the Mother of God

Gewalt gegen die Muttergottes
Germany: Unknown persons have damaged a Marian Statue in the Rüngsdorfer Chapel. This was reported in Bonn's 'General-Anzeiger' on January 20th. Rüngsdorf is a municipality with 7.000 population in the city zone of Bad Godesberg in Bonn. Dean Wolfgang Picken is convinced of "intentional and religiously motivated vandalism". Nothing as stolen "The perpetrators had clearly intended to defile the place and damage the Madonna.", Explained the Dean. It is the fifth such attack against the Mother of God in five years.
