Woman murdered after Mass at Ohio parish

Catholic World News - January 27, 2010

An 80-year-old woman was shot in the head in an Ohio parish parking lot following morning Mass on January 23. Each day, Angeline Fimognari attended Mass and spent three hours praying at St. Dominic’s Church in Youngstown. The murderer has not been apprehended.

“The homicide at St. Dominic Parish on Saturday, January 23, is a horrific and shocking event in and of itself, but especially because it occurred at a holy place,” said Bishop George Murry of Youngstown. “I will celebrate the 8:00 a.m. Mass this Wednesday, January 27, the Mass that Miss Fimognari usually attended, to be with the parishioners who were her friends and family so that as a community we may all pray for her.”

    The Enemy has silenced her prayers on earth -- only to send her to God, where she will be heard all the more. Thus does Evil defeat itself.
