MONTREAL — A priest in Montreal was stabbed in the chest Friday morning during a morning service that was also televised live, CBC reported.
Father Claude Grou was celebrating Mass at Saint Joseph's Oratory when a man walked to the front of the church and attacked him, CTV reported. The attack was captured on television and during a live stream of the service.
“There are so many people who helped me to pass through this moment, and now, my health is fine,” Grou told the network.
The 26-year-old suspect was quickly wrestled to the ground by security guards after the attack, CBC reported.
