From CBS Local:
Bishop Michael Barber of the Oakland Diocese was robbed over the weekend at gunpoint as he was on his afternoon walk, saying his rosary, near the Paramount Theater, church officials confirmed on Tuesday.
At Pentecost Sunday mass, Bishop Barber told parishioners at the Cathedral of Christ the Light of the frightening Saturday afternoon encounter. “I’ll mention this today and then I’ll shut up about it,” Barber said. “Yesterday, at 3 o’clock in the afternoon I was taking a walk on our neighborhood, I go out and walk in the afternoon and say the rosary, a man pulled a gun on me, pointed it at me and said ‘Give me your wallet.”
