They caught the man who torched Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church in Wyandanch, the parish with the largest outreach program on Long Island. Every parish has an outreach program, one of the good things to come along in the Church since the 1970's, and OLMM's program was devastated by this act of arson. Bishop Murphy authorized a collection to be taken up in all parishes to help rebuild. One of the men who received assistance from the parish was behind the arson. The pastor of OLMM was quoted in Newsday:

"I don't know what would ever have driven him to do a thing like that," Brisotti said yesterday at the church, where black scars are visible outside the rectory."

It is called evil Fr. Brisotti, and you do a good job fighting it, but it is always going to be there.
