CWN Editor's Note: A young Austrian Catholic, Alexander Tschugguel, has come forward to identify himself as the man who removed the Pachamama images from a Roman church and threw them in the Tiber River. In a YouTube video explaining his action, Tschugguel said he simply wanted to “bring pagan things out of a Catholic church.”

    Wonderful! Alleluia and Amen! I would like to know where this young man received instructions when he converted as a teen. Obviously he didn't learn this brand of Catholicism from Cardinal Schonborn. The Holy Spirit still inspires!
