An Indian priest is recovering after being stabbed moments before the start of a Catholic church service in Australia. The attack against Rev. Tomy Kalathoor Mathew reportedly took place in front of parishioners on Sunday at St. Matthew’s Parish in Fawkner, a suburb of Melbourne. Local media reports suggest the suspect was displeased that a priest of Indian heritage was conducting the Italian-language Mass.
