Priest Reveals Why A Catholic Church That Has The Shape Of A Serpent Was Built In The Vatican

A Catholic priest has disclosed the true motivations for the construction of a Catholic church in the shape of a snake in the Vatican city of Rome, according to a report by the Associated Press.


The Reverend Father, who is a well-known personality on social media, wrote to dispel the rumors that were being spread regarding the religious organization's organizational structure.


Known as the Resurrection Sculpture, this church is located in Rome and was created specifically for the Pope to hold his weekly audience with the congregation on Wednesdays.


The Catholic priest said that the odd design of the building was created by the sculptor as a result of the challenges that the world was experiencing at the time of its construction.


Father Kelvin Ugwu explained that the church was constructed in the twentieth century with the intention of addressing the ills that plague the globe.


In the priest's estimation, the nuclear bomb was created about this period and was also utilized on the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima during World War II.


The outcome was that Pericle Fazzini, who designed the church, chose to construct a structure that would reflect the terror, dread, regret, and anguish of the period.


He went on to say that the statue of Jesus in the church represents the fact that even in the middle of all the difficulties and destruction, Jesus maintained his position as the highest authority.

HHis warnings continued, saying, "People should exercise caution so that innocent pictures do not take on an entirely new meaning in order to achieve their objectives."
