View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Local Church's Statues Desecrated

Saint Ann's Church in Hornell (in the Southern part of the Diocese of Rochester) was the target of vandalism, with the heads knocked off the statues of The Blessed Mother and St. Francis in the rose garden next to the church.

According to the Canisteo Valley, the pastor, Father Peter Anglaare, said the vandalism was noticed by a parishioner on Saturday.

The heads were still lying on the ground.

Stupid drunken of teenage "pranks?" Done out of hatred? Who knows.

I pray for those who did it.
