In Mantua, Italy, there was another event to inspire more dialogue.
From the Gazzetta di Mantova:
SERRAVALLE: First the broke in to the rectory at Libiola and stole money of the fund for the children of Grest; then, not satisfied, they went to the nearby church which, after last year’s earthquake, is a simple temporary structure of plastic and, next to the altar defecated and urinated. It was a contemptuous, vandalic, and sacrilegious act. Those responsible would also be identified, because a woman saw them leaving the tent. Those concerned are four young men of Moroccan origin, one a resident of Serravalle, the others from Ostiglia and nearby towns.
The article goes into more details. It ends with the priest:
In the meantime, a disappointed Fr. Eugenio [Ferrari] vented:
“If they had come to steal money because they were hungry, I wouldn’t have even gone to make the official complaint; I would have forgiven them. But what they did in the church is a gesture you just can’t overlook, it is inexcusable. … I’m sorry also because, as it seems, the deed was done by four young Moroccans. The showed disdain for our religion. But if I had done the same thing in one of their mosques, they’d cut my head off, no?”
Sts. Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us.
