Very bad surprise for the parishioners of the center of Toulouse, this Saturday morning. Antireligious inscriptions have been found on the doors
of Our Lady of the Dalbade, one of the most emblematic churches of the city, rebuilt in the late fifteenth century after a fire. The message, written in white paint on the doors: "No God", or "no God", in VF.
On Twitter, Father Simon d'Artigue lamented that the building was "vandalized" in the night from Friday to Saturday.
