A statue of Christ was beheaded and vandalised in southern Spain

Last Thursday, unidentified individuals attacked the statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus erected in the Sevillian municipality of La Roda de Andalucía.


In October of 1952, the statue was unveiled in the town square which bears the name of the Consecration of Spain to the Sacred Heart, by King Alfonso XIII in 1919.

The vandals used cobblestones from the square to smash the figure. Hoisting themselves onto the base, the individuals broke off the head and feet of the sculpure.

This cowardly act was denounced with indignation by the local people and the municipality who have promised to restore the statue. Local police have launched an investigation.
