Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria Catholic Chaplaincy’s spiritual leader, has pleaded with his supporters to put an end to demonstrations as he passes leadership to his successor.
In a video message posted to the church’s official Facebook page on Wednesday, Mbaka made the appeal while bidding them “goodbye” and promised to be there for them.
The Adoration Ministry, which was closed three months ago, reportedly reopened a few days ago, according to ANAEDOONLINE.NG. Fr. Anthony Amadi, a priest from the Catholic Diocese of Enugu, has been appointed to take over the Adoration Ministry in lieu of Fr. Mbaka.
ANAEDOONLINE.NG also reported how members of AMEN recently reacted to the church’s decision in transferring Fr. Mbaka to the monastery.
In this light, Fr. Mbaka, in his farewell message, said in the video: “I wish to use this opportunity to bless and encourage you as I depart to the monastery in obedience to my bishop. I want you to remain calm as written in Psalm 46:10.
“This is a time we shall know the real Adorers. Please, back me with your prayers so that I will go and embark on deeper reflections and interior waiting on the Lord. I want to remind you of Jeremiah 29:13, God will reverse everything.
“God has good plans for us and not to destroy us. This is not a time to be sorrowful. Be calm and vigilant. Stop every form of protest and demonstration. I love you and I will be with you. God bless you.”
