A martyr for our times

I just received a newsletter from the Servites that had an item I missed last year. On July 24, 2004, Fr. Faustino Gazziero De Stefani, a Servite priest, was celebrating Mass at the cathedral in Santiago, Chile. A Satanist approached the altar and murdered the priest--in the name of Satan.

Originally from Italy, Fr. De Stafani served as a missionary in Chile for over 40 years. His martyrdom is truly a sign of our times, when the forces of evil and Satan have been attacking the Church in unprecedented ways.

Fr. De Stafani, pray for us!
