October 26, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: A French court has ordered that a cross must be removed from a statue in Ploermel, in Brittany, honoring St. John Paul II. A court in Rennes had earlier called for the removal of the entire statue, saying that it violates the country’s ban on religious monuments in public places. After a successful appeal, the new ruling calls for the removal of the cross that stands over the image of the Polish Pontiff.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
