Please keep in your prayers Father Sergio Baldini, Father Salvatore Magliano, Father Emanuele Battagliotti, and Father Martino Giurini, Franciscan monks from the San Colombano Belmonte monastery.  All 4 were siting down for their evening meal when they were attacked by 3 hooded thugs.  They were bound, gagged, punched, kicked and beaten with clubs.  Father Sergio Baldini is currently in a coma due to the severity of the attack, and the other three monks are recovering from their injuries in a Turin hospital.  The Monks put up no resistance and have but only meager possessions.  Father Sergio Baldini has already had to go through one operation on his skull and brain and they are unsure if another will be required.

Please keep everyone involved in your prayers.   Sad

Lord have mercy!

They were eating a dish of spinach when attacked. Fr. Sergio choked on his food while they crushed his skull. What a senseless act of evil! Cry Kyrie Eleison.

Let's also pray that the attackers don't turn out to be jihadists.
