It's a sad reflection on modern times in Majorca when the Church has to plan greater security measures in an effort to avert further breakages and robberies of important artifacts. Just last week a centuries old statue of Christ was smashed by a vagrant in an act of vandalism which has shocked the island. Unfortunately, churches will now have to be locked or private security guards employed to make sure that they are secure. What next a toll system for worshippers? This sad state of affairs will mean that churches will be locked out of the community at a time when they are probably needed more than ever. There is no real solution to this problem. The vandals will win the day and as usual it will be the majority that suffer. The Church in Majorca remains strong but it will have to be stronger than ever to overcome the breakage of the statue of La Sang which is the focal point of the Easter day parades.
