Please pray for Fr. Tom Uzhunnalil who has been captured by extremist. Fr. Tom is a member of the Salesian Order and was on assignment under the Latin Church in Yemen doing charity work for the elderly. He refused to leave Yemen, even with the threats on his life but instead stayed and continued his work. In an earlier attack, nuns that worked with Fr. Tom were murdered along with some elderly. At the moment among the community and on some news media, there has been strong rumor that the extremist plan to crucify Fr. Tom on Good Friday. Besides this grave rumor that has been circling, there are no other whereabouts of Fr. Tom. Please pray for the repose of the Sisters and elderly who have died and for Fr. Tom and all others who face threats in the Middle East and around the world.
Fr. Tom is the priest in the middle with the martyred Sisters.
Thanks for the information.
God be with Fr Tom and the sisters, and all those who face threats around the world. Folks like Fr Tom are heroes to the world, these are the types of people who refuse to give into terrorists, even at risk to their own life. The terrorists are trying there best to divide the good people of Yemen. The terrorists are not many, but they can cause alot of damage with just one attack. Still the resounding message from the Yemeni people is one that rejects terrorism and this is something Fr Tom, the sisters and most Arabs in Yemen will tell you. I pray for the good people of Yemen and I pray that the terrorists can see the error of their way and change for the better.
