Layity Interprets Vatican document #1

From Sacrosanctum Concilium
§124 . . . Let bishops carefully remove from the house of God and from other sacred places those works of artists which are repugnant to faith, morals, and Christian piety, and which offend true religious sense either by depraved forms or by lack of artistic worth, mediocrity and pretense.

3. Get the bishop to remove that ugly uninspiring work of art. (Of course, have him do it in the most charitable of ways.)
