I belong to a parish in So. Cal.
In the last few years we have had a statue of our Patron Saint ripped off of its stand and stolen, our school windows bashed in, a statue of the Blessed Mother defaced with a hammer and the crown atop the Tabernacle stolen.
NONE of these events ever made the news.
If it had been a Synagogue or a Mosque, you can bet that it would have made the top story on the 6:00 news.
When I start to feel frustrated and angry about this, I think of what our dear Lord said in** Matt. 5:11-12:**
***"Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me. *Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
