New Icon of Bl. Fr. Jacques Hamel

This is going around online and is worthy of sharing:

Blessed Fr. Jacques Hamel, now considered a martyr by the pope, was the French priest who was murdered during Mass by two men who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State. Before having his throat cut by a large knife, Fr. Hamel is reported saying “Go away Satan!” which is written in French on the beautiful icon above, “SATAN VA!”

Bl. Jacques Hamel, ora pro nobis! ☩
