Hearts of Darkness

It takes a special kind of savagery to burn people alive.  If you want to preserve your tranquility, do not watch this linked video.  It arrived via a Spanish friend; hence, the Spanish URL.  Translated, the headline and text read:

Video: Thus Muslims Burn Christians Alive In The Ivory Coast
(Disturbing Video)
More than 1,000 Christians were murdered this week in the Salesian Mission of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus in Duékoué by muslim troops loyal to Alassane Ouattara
The population in the Ivory Coast is majority Catholic and animistic, a religion that views objects and the natural world as possessing a soul.  And this, per se, is a challenge in daily life.
Noman is left without words to describe the thoughts and feelings this video provokes.  What can one call this behavior?   Barbarism?  Atrocity?  Cruelty?  Perhaps the only word that captures it all is "diabolical."  This is satanic behavior.  It perfectly reflects the devil's plan for mankind, and testifies to the name Jesus Christ gave him: the prince of this world.

St. Theresa, little flower, pray for us.
