Kidnapped on March 4th, ISIS reportedly stated that they planned to crucify him on Good Friday. Such a horrible death, but does ISIS not realize they have made a martyr of Fr. Uzhunnali?
Not only has this crucifixion not been confirmed - there is at least one report of officials attempting to secure the release of Fr. Uzhunnalil - so it is hopeful he is still alive. Continued prayers!
Easter Sunday Bombing:
In a related story, the Taliban has claimed responsibility for a bombing in Pakistan of Christian celebrating Easter at a park. The suicide bomber killed mostly women and children. At least 65 killed, 67 by another report, and the count could go higher.
Let us pray for the conversion of Islam. I know that not all Muslims are terrorists, but so many of these atrocities are stemming from radical forms of Islam. The bottom line here is they are following a false religion created by one who claimed to be a prophet. The reality is, their religion was made up 600 years after Jesus Christ and from a combination of Judaism and Christianity - but without the reliance upon the Holy Word of God OR the Church He founded while He was here and have a system which has drifted from the Truth.
