Of your charity , I ask of you all to please keep in your prayers three Salesian priests and an as of yet unknown number of students who were violently attacked yesterday evening at St. John Bosco retreat house in Daleside, south of Johannesburg. Fr's. Coleman, Ivo and Bruno were stabbed and beaten , Fr. J.Coleman's condition still remains serious.
Unfortunately such an event is not a uncommon occurrence here South Africa, and clearly shows the extent of the depravity which pervades throughout South African culture, indeed we are living in a Godless society. I beg you to please keep in your prayers, not only these three priests but also their attackers, who as of yet remain at large. We pray that our Lady , Help of Christians, may bring the light of Christ into their hearts.
