“Counter-Counter Reformation” represents the overlapping of the sacred and the profane, the triumph of the human urge over the will of God. The subtlety of the boy’s depiction is a reflection on the conspiracy of secrets maintained by the church in an attempt to keep the scandal from going public. The dispersal of the crosses is a comment on the presence of God in the priest being dirtied and, in the end, ejected through the priest’s actions.
