Catholic idolatry amidst the sea of poverty : Catholic church in Uganda unvelis 2000kg Jesus crucifix: The Statue cost about 500 million Uganda shiilings

 

The word of God says :
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. (Exodus 20:4)



 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God(Exodus 20:5)

And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.(Numbers 21:9)


Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. He trusted in the Lord God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.  For he clave to the Lord, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses. And the Lord was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not.(2 Kings 18: 1, 4-7)

In Summary
The crucifix is considered the biggest in Africa. 

Kampala- The Catholic Church has erected a Shs500m crucifix at Our Lady of Africa, Mbuya Parish in Nakawa Division.
Father Paulino Mondo, the assistant parish priest, told this newspaper that the cross as a symbol of faith is necessary as protection against HIV/Aids, wars, unemployment and rampant accidents, among others, that have continued to affect Ugandans.
“We hope with this crucifix, things will change. We have a lot of hypocrisy among politicians,” Fr Mondo said yesterday.
“Even Daily Monitor needs this cross because you have been closed and later opened for talking the truth,” he added.
The crucifix in religious denominations represents Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Father Mondo said the crucifix measures 50 feet, while the image of Jesus Christ is 15 feet. The whole crucifix weighs 2000kg and is considered the biggest in Africa.
He said the mahogany out of which the crucifix was curved was 500 years old and was originally used as a shrine for fallen Buganda Kingdom kings. It was cut from Wakiso District.

 

Father Mondo said the crucifix is estimated to have cost Shs500m but the figure would have been higher had it not been the services of volunteers.
Father Mondo explained that with the new crucifix, people who have been trekking long distances to Mt Zion Prayer Centre, Bukalango and other worship centres will now pray from Mbuya.
Mr Patrick Loti, the designer of the crucifix, said since he offered a free service to build the Cross, he has received blessings which has enabled him start a business.
An idol of Pope John Paul II in Rome receives "holy water".
