DEATH IN GOD’S HOUSE: A tribute on the death of the faithful at St. Philip’s Ozubulu.


DEATH IN GOD’S HOUSE: A tribute on the death of the faithful at St. Philip’s Ozubulu.

Driving home after celebrating the Holy Mass, heard on radio midday news that blood has been shed at St. Philip’s. What has happened again? The question I asked myself.

Sequel of the numerous diverse reports concerning the incident, it has become really difficult to tell exactly the story of why and how the killings occurred.

However, I can tell now for certain that some among other children of God who went to worship God in the “Sacrifice of Thanksgiving” breathed their last as mortals in the presence of El Shaddai.

You went to worship God but met death in His presence. You died keeping the Sabbath day holy. The bullets from the gun(s) sent you out of this passing world into the eternity.

Martyrs go well across the bridge where there is no more sorrow no more pain.
Go martyrs to where the sun shines across the rivers and there you will never be unhappy again.
Rest in peace heroes of faith.
We love you.
