During the First Communion mass at St. Mary Magdalen Church in Abbeville, Louisiana, the occasion was interrupted when an armed teenager entered the building. As the priest, Nicholas Duper, learned of the threat, he began to lead the congregation in a prayer to Mary, asking them to say a “Hail Mary.”

This response, turning to Mary, highlights a significant issue—Mary is powerless to intervene. In a moment of real danger, their prayers should have been directed to God, the only one who holds true power and authority.

Amid the ensuing chaos, quick-thinking parishioners managed to subdue the armed intruder, ensuring no one was harmed. The teenager, dressed in black and armed with a rifle, was pinned down and later arrested by police. The suspect claimed there was another accomplice, prompting a thorough search of the church.

Despite their misplaced prayers, God, in His mercy, safeguarded the congregation from potential tragedy giving them an opportunity to repent.

The church has since announced police protection for future masses, recognizing the need for tangible security measures. But it was the grace of God that protected those in the building, not the powerless invocation of Mary. In moments of fear and danger, acknowledging God’s sovereignty is crucial, as He alone has the power to save and deliver us from harm.
