Take the time this weekend to check out these recent stories

NYC cathedral gunman’s note says he planned to take hostages

Scary stuff. Thank God the police were nearby and were willing to stop this man as soon as they did. As someone who has studied criminal behavior, I’m convinced that this man changed his mind at the last minute and committed suicide by cop when he was met with immediate force. Otherwise he would have probably gone through with his plan. I brought up two weeks ago that churches really need to start taking security seriously. If the police were not on scene right away, the outcome could have been a lot worse.

We are continually disappointed at the lack of action on this subject.


Don’t put off doing good, urges Cardinal Tagle, reflecting on his COVID experience

We should not wait for the perfect time or the end of the pandemic in order to preach and live out the gospel. Now is the time.
