  1. Very sad and pathetic, it is a pity. I wonder what people must have seen where priest are this days. Every day we continue hearing kidnapping and killing stories. What is this.

  2. The kidinapping must be the reason for his death. Who knows how he was traumatized there, whether he was totured to bring money and even the environment and other psycological trauma he went tgrough there. What a great loss. May his soul rest in peace. Amen
