Came home from a lovely day with a smashing team
to shocking news of the 84 year old French priest,
who was murdered during this morning’s mass.
They slit his throat in front of his congregation
and took 4 others hostage.
What a mad mad mad world this is.
So I came away to my room, to think about that priest,
and the other poor souls involved in Rouen.
Words fail me.
I have to have a time of silence,
to speak with the old man.
I need to tell him that
I am so very very sorry that he suffered such a violent end.
