I agree with you my friend. However, Saint Rita used to contemplate on Jesus's passion and the statue of Jesus on the cross was a very good means for her contemplation.
Some people argue that we catholics adore statues when we truly ought to adore God. This is not true. We make use of holy statues and religious images since these items help us in our meditation with God. I, for one, when I see such beautiful creations makes me ponder on how great is Our Lord when He gave this creative ability to the artists in making these works of art.
