It's a new year and the need for intense prayer continues

Story 1 - In New Jersey, four teenagers are arrested for stealing 27 statues of the Child Jesus and planning to set them on fire.

"They were looking for things to do," Detective Ken Kelly said. "They told us, 'We were going to have a baby Jesus burning party.' "The reason they picked (the Jesus figures) was because they looked real."

Kelly said one of the suspects told detectives, "We just wanted to see their heads burning."

Story 2 - In Chicago, vandals sprayed "KKK", "666", and "Leave" on statues of the Blessed Mother and Jesus at the Fraternite Notre Dame Monastery.

"We was crying, believe me. When you see that, you cannot ... we love so much the blessed mother. We cannot leave her like this," said Sister Mary of the Cross, one of the nuns at the monastery.

May God have mercy on us and on the whole world.

For some background on the KKK in McHenry County, see my recent post on

I think they were imitators. I've been in Crystal Lake since 1958 and never seen anything local.
