Bishop: Slain US journalist Foley opened our eyes
Bishop Peter Libasci (lih-BAH'-shee) spoke Sunday at a Mass of Remembrance in Foley's hometown of Rochester. The bishop says even after Foley was captured for the first time in Libya in 2011, "he went back again that we might open our eyes."
The Mass was attended by Foley's parents and hundreds of others.
Foley was kidnapped on Thanksgiving Day 2012 while covering the Syrian uprising. The Islamic State posted a Web video Tuesday showing his killing and said it was in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq.
