my brothers in faith..i am a catholic i don't believe that this is a idolatry..if we find the verses in the bible there are two Holy images that god instruct Moses to make 1st was the Cherubim and the ark of covenant (Ex. 25:17-20) and the 2nd the Bronze serpent (Num.21:8)"and the lord said to moses, "make a saraph and mount it on a pole and if anyone who has been bitten looks at it he will recover."..there's nothing wrong of the holy image. so now let see what is the teaching of our church regarding this issue. i would like to quote from Catechism of Catholic Church about the holy image (CCC1159) The sacred image, the liturgical icon, principally represents Christ. It cannot represent the invisible and incomprehensible God, but the incarnation of the Son of God has ushered in a new "economy" of images...and the (CCC 2113) Idolatry not only refers to false pagan worship. It remains a constant temptation to faith. Idolatry consist in divinizing what is not God. Man commits idolatry whenever he honors and reveres a creature in place of God, whether this be gods or demons (for example satanism), power, pleasure, race, ancestors, the state, money etc. Jesus says,"you cannot serve God and mammon.". which the bible also said in (Ex. 20:3) you shall have no other gods before me..but the black nazaren is god jesus christ..the problem of this fiesta is only the crowd control and teach the proper catholic doctrine about the holy images...i hope this can help other that try to against the catholic church god bless and we love you brothers in christ..
