This is a monstrance commissioned for the Pope's visit to Austria. The monstrance will stay in the Am Hof church after Pope Benedict's visit. One can't help thinking that the object and design would have been better employed as a suncatcher instead of a monstrance. And it would need to be smaller and lighter...most people wouldn't want a 40 lb suncatcher in their window.

Holy Schlamoley! Something tells me that our Beloved German Shepherd will have a word or two to say to the idiots who dreamed this thing up.

Indeed he may, sir. The maker of this "monstrance" may catch it all right---and I don't mean the sun either.
