Caught on Video: Vandals Deface Catholic Cathedral in San Diego with Blasphemous Graffiti

This is tragic! Please pray for this parish!

Fr. Daniel Shaba of St. Peter Chaldean Catholic Cathedral in San Diego, Calif. posted disturbing images and video footage of vandals defacing the church with spray paint on Sun., Sept. 27.

The vandals painted pentagrams, upside-down crosses, “white power,” swastikas, “BLM,” and more on the front of the Chaldean cathedral.

Fr. Shaba asked social media users to “pray for the criminals who did this” and that “it reminded me to pray for my brethren in Iraq that are facing persecution.”

This is one of many attacks on Catholic churches throughout the United States within the last year.

Here’s Fr. Shaba’s videos below:

Fr. Shaba then asked users to “please share” the security footage.

The later diocese thanked “volunteers and benefactors” on their Facebook page “for assisting in the clean-up.”

The post reads, “Nice, clean, and all ready for Sunday masses. Thank you to all the volunteers and benefactors for assisting in the clean up. And thank you to all of you parishioners who have been reaching out to the church and priests for a helping-hand.

“It is truly a beautiful thing to see not only the Chaldean community come together in solidarity, but also the entire El Cajon community.”

Please pray for the protection of our churches! 🙏🙏🙏
