Lord, have mercy!

From the article:  “We are grateful to God for keeping free from danger the faithful of Saint
Gregory of Nyssa. It is my hope and prayer that the church facilities and
furnishings may be restored in the very near future, allowing the congregation
to once again convene for worship in their church home,” stated His Eminence
Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco. “The firefighters are to be commended
for their swift action, and we are thankful for their safety.”

A man who set fire to a Greek Orthodox church in Rancho San Diego and attacked a cellmate four days after his arrest pleaded guilty Monday to arson and assault with intent to commit mayhem.

Pursuant to his plea and following a full evaluation by mental health professionals, attorneys on both sides agreed that Darin Wayne Williams was legally insane at the time of both offenses.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
