Praying for a murdered priest


On a rather sad note, one of our Ugandan priests was found on saturday morning; murdered in cold blood. We pray for the repose of his soul.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetuel light shine upon him, may he rest in peace. Amen.


For his soul and for the repentance of his murderers. - Joe K.




Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.



O Loving Father and Savior, send your angels to carry the soul of your servant from this earth to the heavenly place of eternal and everlasting life. Let family and friends who have passed before in faith be reunited in joy with the departed. Forgive any wrongs that have been committed and welcome this beloved spirit into the warm embrace of your unending peace. Amen.

Sincerest condolences for your loss.

Prayers and thanksgiving for his sacrifice.:sad_bye:


Praying for the repose of his soul. Very sorry to hear this news. I pray the guilty person repents and turns himself in.


I will pray for his soul. :frowning:


Eternal rest give to him and let everlasting light enlighten him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

My dear patron Fathers, please pray for the soul of your brother-priest.


May God have mercy on his soul. To kill a priest to me is so horrendous. May God find the person who did this crime and may he be brought to his knees in conversion. Will pray for you and us because every time a priests is killed it just wounds the heart of our church.
My sincere sorrow for your country, parish and community and for us as a people of God.
Will keep you all in my prayers.
