The priest who loved Timothy McVeigh to the end

Interesting article from CNS about the Catholic priest who ministered to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh to his last moments. Other clergymen had tried and failed, and McVeigh reacted violently to Father Smith when first approached, but this dear priest, who had suffered ethnic discrimination as a child, simply loved and kept loving.

One must hope that Timothy McVeigh, guilty as he was, was reconciled to God before his execution.



  • That's a great story, and one I don't remember hearing before. It's great that one of God's shepherds was able to gather one of the lost sheep before it was too late.
