such beautiful humility.
I just this second got done reading that article. It was a very welcome change to see a front page article on a major news organization showing a truly heroic side of a priest. The man is an inspiration for all of us, and he most certainly deserves our prayers as he deals with any anxiety that may accompany such a horrific event. And the woman too is in great need of our prayers, as well. Most likely she is severely mentally ill, and hopefully she gets the help she needs.
Like a true shepherd, this priest!
Beautiful. It’s things like these that make me wish I was called to the priesthood.
“Doctors used 14 staples to close the “T”-shaped wounds. …Police say she told them that the knife was in three different places, but it was never located.”
A “T” shaped wound? Wonder what he was really stabbed with, given her belief he was the “antichrist”.
The mind boggles….
Pray for the mentally ill and for funding to help them.
I hope this lady gets the medical care she needs and that it helps her. How sad for her.
The media is all over this priest positively because he has done what they approve of but can you imagine the meltdown if he had expressed even the tiniest bit of human anger at this woman who injured him so badly. He had no choice but to say publicly that he forgave his attacker.
if the wounds were “t” shaped, it was more likely an atheme not simply a knife and who knows what this woman was into.
We should all offer prayers for the intercession of Saint Dymphna for this poor woman. The pain of mental illness is no less real than the pain of a broken leg. Fr. Benedict Groeschel is right in comparing it to the Crown of Thorns.
Oh, dear. Apparently, she also has an Internet life, or at least someone under her name posted at Ignatius Insight in the comment box. And in a tone which sounds about right.
May God help her.
Running the search engine on her name produces a fairly consistent couple of groups of posts, some of which are very angry and paranoid in tone and others which are fairly sweet albeit old-fashioned or florid in tone.
So yeah, I’d say she’s a real member of St. Blog’s, albeit on the periphery, poor lady.
