I feel so sad when this happens and, I have to say, sad..a lot..at the fact churches can rarely leave their doors open these days. When I was a child you could walk into a church and just sit quietly, or pray, or seek solace or comfort or inspiration. Now most of the time the doors are locked unless there is a service of some sort. Many many church building are glorious simply in terms of design and architecture and it is such a shame so many children are losing the gift of appreciating these things.

A priest..monastic..was badly knifed in Sydney a week ago and he appears to come though surgery very well..thank God..and all he can express is his concern for his attacker. What wonderful, forgiving spirits some people have.
