A Catholic priest is lucky to be alive after surviving a stabbing attack during morning mass at a church in Canada that was being broadcast live online and on television.
According to Mail Online, at around 8.40am, Father Claude Grou was conducting the service at Saint Joseph's Oratory in Montreal when the attacker, who has not been named, suddenly rushed at him from one of the pews.

He ran towards the priest, slashing him twice in the chest before his knife broke.  His wounds were only superficial as a result, the publication reported.
Moment after falling to the ground, Father Grou immediately got up as congregants rushed to interfere by standing in between him and the attacker who they held until police arrived and took him into custody.

 It remains unclear what his motive was, but the priest was lightly injured and has been taken to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.
The assailant who is yet to be charged will be interviewed by the police.
