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.

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.

Often these changes may go unnoticed, but it may become obvious soon. These changes are in the colors of the days, as well as some of the way we decorate our churches and chapels.
