Fr. Rutler's former parish -- Iconoclasm in New York City. "Too much art"? "This is too foreign to the Roman rite"?
I had visited the temple several times, whenever I could during my visits to NYC. This is sad and infuriating. Getting rid of the icons of St. Augustine Zhao Rong and St. Andrew Kim as well? How un-PC! Once the icon of Christ Pantocrator is removed I will have no reason to visit the temple at all.
