This is the saddest news. We had hoped this Catholic priest would be released but the horrible act of crucifixion was what ISIS had in mind for Rev. Uzhunnalil…Pray!

His execution by the Islamist sect, using the same method used by the Romans on Jesus and marked on Good Friday every year, was confirmed at the Easter Vigil Mass by Cardinal Christoph Schonborn of Vienna.

Father Uzhunnalil was a native of India and had been the object of both prayers and diplomatic efforts since the March 4 raid where 16 Christian nuns and nurses were killed.

Bishop Paul Hinder, who heads the Catholic Church in Yemen, said the Missionaries home had been the object of numerous threats but they refused to leave.

Pope Francis already had honored the slain nuns as martyrs.
