Church burns down on Christmas Eve

Last evening we received the sad news that St. Mary's church in Brussels burned down; the church was built in 1863.  Fortunately, no one was injured.

Toward the end of his homily at the midnight Mass, Bishop Paprocki acknowledged that the fire "will be devastating for the people of the parish" and invited those gathered in the Cathedral to pray for them, "knowing that Christ's birth is especially menaingful for those who suffer and who long for His coming."
