Wooden beams ripped from village church by tornado being turned into cross for Pope Francis

Wooden beams from the dome of a church damaged by a tornado in the Moravská Nová Ves village in southern Moravia are being made into a cross for the upcoming visit of Pope Francis to neighbouring Slovakia. The cross, which is almost finished, will grace the podium being prepared for the Pontiff in Šaštín, Slovakia, close to the Czech border.
