More Distress in Nigeria – Student slaughtered
Our dear Fr. Solomon has been in contact with his family and friends in Nigeria. Once again an outrage against a Christian woman has wounded their country. Accused of ‘blasphemy’ against the Prophet in a Twitter post, this young Deborah Samuel was beaten to death and then burned by fellow classmates. When there was an attempt to apprehend those responsible, mobs formed, attacking and burning down the local Catholic Parish and also attacking the Diocesan Offices. Let us pray for the repose of her soul, the consolation of her family, the confounding and conversion of those who persecute the Christians of Nigeria.
