Priest does good, news at 11:00

Usually priests only make news when they do something we don't expect them to do (think sex or stealing).

Here's a great story of a priest who epitomizes Christian charity, as so many priests do.

A mentally-imbalanced woman, thinking him to be the anti-Christ, stabbed him in the ribs--missing vital organs by a couple of centimeters.

His response:

"The priest feels compassion for the woman who attacked him, and he is turning the other cheek. "We have to continue to pray to do the church's work. To love, and most of all to forgive.""

Hm-m-m-m, I'm thinking it would take me awhile to offer grace like if I were in his shoes.
