3 Hail Marys for Fr. Tom


“Was informed that the Salesian priest, Fr.Tom who was kidnapped by ISIS from the Missionaries of Charity Home in Yemen is being tortured and is going to be crucified on Good Friday. This calls for serious concerted prayers from all of us.”

Let @Pontifex know.

    I am curious about the governments around the world if this comes to pass starting with Kerry and Obama.

    Behind every priest is the mother.The Great High Priest Jesus and the Blessed Mother.Each Priest has his mother.No one told the Blessed Mother to take A chill pill…it was to be .If ISIS does actually do thus then let’s pray for the mother to remain strong,as the Blessed Mother did as well.

    I agree with a lot of what you say except the close with the secular world.We must remember it was another day in the market place when Jesus carried his cross up to Calvary.I thought a lot about this priest yesterday,offered up Hail Marys on my way up to venerate the cross.This is. Grace Filled Moment for Fr Tom if it is to be as well for us.

    Gregory. Go to Fr. Tom’s mother, and tell her to chill because it’s all good. If you can cheerfully dismiss this poor man’s sufferings like this I don’t know what to say for you.

    Sir, you need to seek help…

    Wishing for a horrible death for this man who has given so much to help people is sick.

    What a straight up terrifying statement. Feel free to swap places with this poor fellow if its such an honour.

    It will be an amazing Grace to be Crucified for Christ. Some of the Apostles have been crucified. St. Peter was crucified upside down. Just think how many Muslims will be converted to the Catholic Church because of this crucifixion of such a Holy Priest. God picked this Priest to be crucified on the same Holy Friday that Christ Our Lord was Crucified. Also the sufferings indured by Fr. Tom if he offers them to Our Holy Mother the Blessed Virgin Mary will convert many sinners to the Catholic Church. How blessed is Fr. Tom is if he is killed for Christ. How his instant arrival in Heaven among the Martyrs will be so glorious to Almighty God and His Catholic Church. Martyrdom is not a bad thing. Its bad to the Secular World because they do not have the Catholic Faith.

    I can’t wait for the press release condemning this action… while at the same time explaining how the kidnapping, torture, and murder of Fr. Tom is an opportunity for dialog with those who “worship the same God we do”, furthering the ecumenical aims of the blessed Council Fathers, finally coming to fruition under Pope Francis who was chosen, and is led, by the Holy Spirit.

    This may be a rumour – let’s hope it is. The Salesians have not confirmed it.
