“The little one who had vandalized and taken it away came back to ask Our Lady of Sorrows for forgiveness.” Fr. Benedict added in reference to monstrance and the lunette having been returned on the memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows marked September 15.
The member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (Spiritans) further said that the man involved in the desecration “is not normal and he needs deliverance” and that he (Fr. Benedict) had “blessed the child and his parents.”
