Pere Jacques Hamel, 84.
Fr. Hamel was murdered by terrorists during Mass in the parish church in the French town of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray.
Two knife-wielding attackers who had pledged allegiance to ISIS, shouting "Allahu Akbar," slit the throat of an 84-year-old priest and critically wounded at least one other person during a Tuesday morning terror attack on a Catholic church near the Normandy city of Rouen, officials said.
The priest, Jacques Hamel, was dead at the scene, and another person, possibly a nun, was clinging to life, Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said. - Source
Prayers for the victims and survivors. Prayers for the repose of Pere Jacques soul. Prayers in thanksgiving for his priesthood, his fidelity, and being conformed to Our Lord Jesus Christ Crucified. May he experience the power flowing from His Resurrection and obtain for us peace and an end to terrorism.
