Radical feminists vandalised a church in Paris

On the 12th of March, the destruction of the Gothic Saint-Leu-Saint-Gilles church in Paris was discovered. These acts of vandalism are harrowing for Catholics during the important season of Lent.


One of the “autographs” speaks directly of “anti-capitalist feminists.” There were also anarchist symbols on the church. The church has been listed as a historical monument since 1915. Its origins date back to the 13th century.

The young Catholic association FIDE responded to the destruction of the church walls. Its members pledged to help the parish “clean up”. On Twitter, they wrote: “We will never be silent in the face of profanation. The churches of France have suffered enough already.

This church was also devastated during the revolution; it was restored in 1849. The parish is now in the hands of the Order of Trinitarians. They look after, among others, homeless people from the nearby district of Les Halles.
