Angola Prelate Assaulted in Sacristy. Bishop Dal Corso Undeterred by Attack
CABINDA, Angola, JULY 22, 2005 (Zenit.org).- The bishops' conference of Angola and S?o Tom? expressed indignation at the news that the apostolic administrator of Cabinda was assaulted in a sacristy.

Bishop Eugenio Dal Corso, 66, was accosted while he was preparing to celebrate Mass on Monday at Immaculate Conception Parish, reported Vatican agency Fides.

That same day the bishops' conference held a Mass of reparation and solidarity in Luanda, and published a statement deploring the act of aggression.

Church sources told that the young men who attacked the bishop had entered the sacristy and declared: "Where there is no peace there can be no Mass."

They beat and kicked the bishop, who fell to the floor. Later, he was taken to a hospital and treated for bruises and a sprained hand.

"The doctors wanted to keep me in the hospital," said Bishop Dal Corso. "But I said that after medication I would prefer to return to the bishop's house to give a sign of encouragement to the people."
