Why do people do this?

We are a bit sadden here at St. James in Red Bank. Twice this week someone has come into our lovely little church and vandalized it. They have sliced several of the kneelers. We are hosting the ordination of the transitional deacons in a few weeks, so we really wanted the church looking nice. Normally we keep the church open from 6am to 6pm, but until we install some security cameras we have to keep it locked. This morning, in addition to telling the people why I had to chase them out after the Rosary, I had everyone pray for the person who has been doing this vandalism, that whatever hurt (real or imagine) which is causing them to lash out at the Church in this fashion might be healed by Christ Jesus.
