A beloved Catholic priest is recovering in hospital after a man pulled out a knife and stabbed the 48‑year‑old in front of shocked worshippers in Melbourne, Australia.

Reverend Tomy Mathew was about to begin the 11am Italian mass at St Matthew's Catholic Church yesterday when the man approached with what was believed to be a kitchen knife.

Police are searching for the man who stabbed the parish priest.
