The current issue of America magazine features an article by Chesterton Academy dad, Mr. Nick Zinos, on Fr. Jacques Hamel, Europe's first 21st-century martyr. Excerpt: The scene of the Rev. Jacques Hamel’s martyrdom is striking because the town is so ordinary and peaceful. It is hard to believe that such a brutal attack could take place here.
