Mbaka have not been removed from Adoration Ministry — Catholic Church

Published

on

The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria on Monday clarified that Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka had not been removed from the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN) as erroneously reported in some quarters.

It stated that the recommendation for Mbaka to spend some time in solitude at a monastery was hinged on the need for him to hear what the Spirit of God had to tell him, but insisted that he was still the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry.

The CSN disclosed this in a press statement issued in Abuja by its National Director of Social Communications, Padre Michael Umoh.

It said the clarification was necessary due to a news report that erroneously suggested that Bishop Callistus Onaga had sacked Fr Ejike Mbaka as the leader of the ministry.

Reacting to this, the Umoh pointed out that Mbaka personally proposed Fr. Anthony Amadi as the interim administrator of the Adoration Ministry while he is away.

He said, “Going by an interview with the Director of Communications, Enugu Diocese, Rev. Fr. Ben Achi, Very Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka was not removed from the Adoration Ministry, as many reports are suggesting.

“Rather, according to Fr. Achi, since it was recommended that Fr. Mbaka takes time away in solitude, in order to listen to what the Spirit of God has to tell him, he was allowed to propose a priest to administer, in the interim, to the faithful at the Adoration Ministry.

“With the approval of his Bishop, on Sunday, 2 October 2022, Fr. Mbaka introduced Fr. Anthony Amadi to the worshippers.

“Unfortunately, some people were still not pleased and would prefer that Fr. Mbaka remains.

“What every true Christian, and especially every true Catholic, should do at this moment is to commit our dear brother and priest, Fr. Mbaka, to God in prayer so that he may, through this moment, encounter God specially, come out stronger and better in recognizing His will for him and gain more graces to channel those rare gifts for His glory and for the sanctification of the people of God and society at large.

“The Church loves Fr. Mbaka and cherishes him as an illustrious son.”

Gunmen, on Friday morning, attacked a mosque in Ughelli, Delta state, leaving 11 worshippers injured.

NAN quoted a resident as saying the attack took place at about 6:47am when some Muslim faithful were holding their morning prayers at the central mosque, located along Okoroda street in Ughelli.

The witness said many residents were jolted from their sleep by gunshots followed by loud cries from people inside the mosque.

“My name is Larry, I am commercial vehicle driver here in Ughelli. I live very close to the central mosque, so this morning at about 6.45 am we heard shooting at the mosque,” the resident reportedly said.

“Because of fear, many people in my compound were frightened and we remained inside only peeping through our windows.

“As the shooting lasted, we heard loud cries from some worshippers inside the mosque.”

He said after the invaders left, many residents thronged to the mosque to see what happened.

He said the residents helped to evacuate injured worshippers, adding that the survivors suffered severe injuries.

Larry was quoted as saying some of the worshippers told residents that three persons were taken away by the gunmen.

Bright Edafe, Delta police spokesperson, confirmed the incident, saying only 11 worshippers were injured in the attack.

He, however, did not confirm the abduction of three worshippers.

“I just called the DPO at Ughelli and he confirmed to me that 11 persons were injured in the attack at the mosque,” he said.

“However, the police have commenced investigation into the incident and we will update you as we work to unravel the culprits.

“For now, no arrest has been made but I can assure you that we will get those involved.”

Prayer by men who maltreat their wives can’t be answered, says Mike Bamiloye

Mike Bamiloye, the clergyman, says prayer by men who maltreat their wives can’t be answered.

The founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International spoke of men who subject their wives to maltreatment.

In a post via his Facebook page on Tuesday, he stated the prayers of men who hurt their wives can’t be answered.

“Men and bros, listen to me! Men and brethren, listen to me. When you are maltreating your wife, it is yourself you are doing!” the clergyman said.

“When you are hurting your wife, it is yourself you are hurting. When you are starving your wife to punish her, it is yourself you are starving.

“Listen to me, bros and men. Your prayers will not be able to turn the situation around when you are violent and inhumane and inconsiderate and unloving to the wife of our youth. She cries all night long, you don’t even care.”

Mike Bamiloye said any man who “insults, starves, punishes, or maltreats” his wife is ruining himself.

“She hurts terribly in her heart. You don’t even look in her direction. You abandon her at home with three or four children and go your way on a business trip and personal vacation, cruising from cost to cost,” the pastor added.

“You are only making a deposit to a bank of future calamity and you will make your withdrawals with full interest. You cannot miss your rewards, it is yourself you are doing. Well done.

“Clap for yourself for maltreating the wife you vowed in the presence of God and witness of the church to love and cherish in sickness, and in health, for better and for worse. You are doing yourself.”
