All I want for Christmas, Archbishop?

Is a hacksaw blade.


Archbishop visits Bexar Jail

Nearly a decade had passed since a San Antonio archbishop had visited Bexar County Jail, an imposing red-brick castle just west of downtown housing more than 3,400 inmates.

That changed Friday when San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller stopped to celebrate Christmas Mass.

The 65 male inmates in orange jumpsuits chosen for the event surrounded the archbishop in his white and purple vestments in a crowded chapel with watchful guards and narrow windows facing onto plain exterior walls.
