  • Are they Catholics?
    "For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears:" [2 Tim. 4:3]

    "Be not therefore solicitous for tomorrow; for the morrow will be solicitous for itself. Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof." [Matt. 6:34]

    "For the letter killeth, but the spirit quickeneth." [2 Cor. 3:6]

  • The situation in Nigeria is indeed a very terrible one and painful. The media are not reporting a lot of things to the world . Only few of the attacks and persecutions of the  Christians are reported. There is ongoing subtle elimination of Christians and many innocent souls in many places in the country . The Islamic Jihadists have their foot soldiers that are not relenting as they move through the bushes and forests as herdsmen in disguise . They often camp there with sophisticated weapons and  ammunitions. Many a times they move about freely with their weapons as herdsmen  ready to strike at anyone or Community they target. Kidnapping, raping and killings are on the increase daily which the media don't report. It is obvious that their targets are the Christian Churches and anyone who profess Christianity. The Muslims are fully in  control of the government and seat of power. All the service Chiefs are Muslims and all the key government positions and parastatals are under their command and control. That offers the so called terrorists, bandits and herdersmen  uncontrollable audacity to carry out their mayhem and Islamic agenda without limit and restrictions . Dear brethren, please unite with us in prayers in imploring the  merciful intervention of the heavenly Father to save His pilgrim Church in Nigeria or else Islamic religion will take over the entire Country.

    Workers cleared the pools of blood and pieces of broken pews at the Saint Francis Catholic church in south-west Nigeria on Monday, as the local community mourned more than 50 parishioners shot dead in the final moments of mass a day earlier.

    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer
