I was going to post a different article today, but after hearing Tuesday’s news, I just didn’t have the heart for it. Last week, I was feeling a little down over the state of the country and the world. The stripping of our religious freedoms at home, the increasing terrorists attack abroad, and an electoral race that shows no concern for the sanctity of life – all of these were beginning to weigh down on me.
And then came Tuesday’s news: the story of Fr. Jacque Hamel’s atrocious assassination by the cruel hands of an 18-year-old ISIS terrorist during Holy Mass.
