Stabbing at the Christmas procession in Jaffa; victim dies
« on: January 07, 2012, 08:30:43 PM »
The Orthodox Christian celebration of Christmas in Jaffa, Israel, was tainted by horror, as a man in the procession was stabbed to death.

From the article:
Quote
Gabriel Cadis, the head of Jaffa’s Orthodox Church Association, was stabbed Friday night and died hours later at a hospital. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said six members of an Arab Christian family were in custody Saturday as police investigate.

Witnesses told police the attacker was wearing a red-and-white Santa suit.

May his memory be eternal.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
