"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Local news: Person of interest in the Jacob Wetterling case.

Investigators are cautiously saying they may have a break in the case.

It's a creepy story and one that most Minnesotans will never forget - the abduction and disappearance of a young boy.  It is heartbreaking - and the details surrounding the suspect's 'proclivities' is even worse. The suspect is charged with child pornography.  He kept boy's clothes and shoes, several binders of child porn - mostly boys.  Evidence of bondage - duct tape and so on.  Seriously evil and perverted.

The latest on this story.
After 26 years of mystery surrounding the abduction of Jacob Wetterling, hope of resolution for his parents and the city of St. Joseph emerged on Thursday. 
The arrest of Annandale’s Daniel Heinrich on child pornography chargesbecame even more significant when a subsequent link to the case of another Stearns County boy who went missing around the same time as Wetterling was revealed. 
Though he has not been charged with Wetterling’s abduction and denies involvement, authorities led by U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger went public with the information, identifying him as a “person of interest” in the cold case. 
Wetterling’s parents Patty and Jerry, who opened a child protection centerbearing their son’s name after he went missing, issued a statement that was hopeful, but also asked “for time” as the investigation progresses. 
“The search for Jacob is an ongoing investigation and we will watch and learn with everybody else,” they said, adding: “For 26 years we have said that somebody knows something … we are so grateful for the prayers, the support and hope shared in our search for Jacob and the search for answers.” - Source

Following all the links in this story opens up an entire underworld of perversion and sexual exploitation of children and teen aged boys most of us never knew existed.  The guy arrested in the Wetterling case had photos of teen boys from local yearbooks, he cut out the faces and pasted them onto existing porn he down-loaded from the Internet.   He secretly video taped neighborhood boys delivering papers and doing ordinary things - focusing the camera on their crotch.

I'm too upset to write about this stuff.

Stop sexualizing children.

Stop using any kind of porn.

Stop engaging in sexual perversion of any kind.

Pray that the pervert in this case, Daniel Heinrich confesses to his involvement in the Wetterling case.  Pray that he will have a change of heart and confess his crimes.

Pray for Jacob's parents.

Pray for kids.  Protect your kids.


  1. I look at that little boy's face and I see purity and beauty and happiness until some creep came along and robbed this little one of all he had. I do not understand why.

    I remember when I was a kid my brothers and I would walk about half a mile to the school playground and be out there on the swings until 10 pm at night. My mom would scold us big time but we have good memories of those happy days. Halloween was always a blast too.

    I look back on all that now and now understand there was always danger lurking everywhere for kids but we just never thought about that.

    My prayers for that little boy, his mama and papa and all children everywhere.

    Did you read about the refugee kids who are using sex in order to survive out there in all the madness? I read those unfortunate souls either lost contact with family, were robbed, or the parents/siblings died while in the camps. Now, in order to survive they have to resort to sexual slavery/prostitution in order to pay back their smugglers.

    When will the Lord lift up his right hand in justice? When?

    1. I didn't see that about the refugee kids - doesn't surprise me - it's just depressing. It is evil.

  2. Such perversion in this world. It has been going on since almost the beginning. So much pain. I was reading yesterday about the Subway fellow. Omg. I am praying for all of his victims and for his family, especially for his children. They will have to keep him in solitary forever. It always troubles me when I hear someone say "Oh, he'll get his (or hers) in prison." They are wishing for others to put their souls in mortal danger. This is a sick sick world.

  3. My jaw dropped when I first saw the news. My wife and I both remember all the news about him when we were growing up. Ultimately I hope the perps are brought to justice, I can imagine it would be some small consolation for the family.
