Then, a day or two later, the news came out that the killer had echoed the devil in writing, in an e-mail, "we'll be our own God's." [sic]
Now, today, an Associated Press news story (click on this post's title) about the killer reports this about him:
"After Murray rejected religion, he became fixated on people and groups that explore the dark side of spirituality, obsessing over the satanic lyrics of Swedish metal bands, for instance.
"Murray attended events held by [a] Denver-based occult group [...] during the last two years, but was turned down when he sought to become a member of the group. His involvement with them apparently ended in October."
Murray also heard voices -- a sign of a type of schizophrenia, as we know. So he had many problems.
We should always pray for the safety of our Cardinal, bishops, clergy, religious and laity, and of the Blessed Sacrament and all our churches.
Let us pray: St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. Restrain him, O God, we humbly beseech Thee, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who roam through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
