Posted on 06/12/2014 1:24:18 PM PDT by BlatherNaut
The message below was posted nine hours ago on the Facebook page of Province of St. Joseph, Dominican Friars. Please pray. It appears that Fr. Najeeb may have been martyred. Fr. Legge wrote this morning: Heres my quick translation of the email message sent early this morning by Fr. Najeeb. Bad news. I write you in a situation of violence in Mosul that is very critical and even apocalyptic. Most of the inhabitants of the city have already abandoned their houses and fled into the villages and are sleeping in the open without anything to eat or drink. Many thousands of armed men from the Islamic Groups of Daash have attacked the city of Mosul for the last two days. They have assassinated adults and children. The bodies have been left in the streets and in the houses by the hundreds, without pity. The regular forces and the army have also fled the city, along with the governor. In the mosques, they cry Allah Akbar, long live the Islamic State. Qaraqosh is overflowing with refugees of all kinds, without food or lodging. The check points and the Kurdish forces are blocking innumerable refugees from entering Kurdistan. What we are living and what we have seen over the last two days is horrible and catastrophic. The priory of Mar Behnam and other churches fell into the hands of the rebels this morning. . . . and now they have come here and entered Qaraqosh five minutes ago, and we are now surrounded and threatened with death . . . . pray for us. Im sorry that I cant continue . . . They are not far from our convent . . . .

More evidence of Obama’s failed policies. I am beginning to believe even the idiot Slow Joe Bite-me would be a better president that Barak HUSSEIN Obama. Obama and every one of his security advisors should resign and go home. They are not just worthless, they are dangerous.
Oh, Dear God, dear God, remember your own and protect them!
If this is true, he is safe in God’s arms.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
I am beginning to believe even the idiot Slow Joe Bite-me would be a better president that Barak HUSSEIN Obama.
At least we know “Slow Joe” isn’t a Muslim.
As an American Christian, I’m suddenly very ashamed of what I bring to the throne of God as problems. God bless the Iraqi Christians and protect them!
Amen to that!
Amen! Many Christian martyrs there and elsewhere in the Middle East and Africa. Shows the faith of these people.
PLEASE God care, protect, and watch your believing children. Amen.
So sad. Prayers sent.
May the holy spirit be with them.
(It hurts to see what's happening-After all the blood that was spilled in Iraq-we throw it away, and it ends up like this. I can't find words to express my sorrow and disgust with those who plotted and schemed for failure-May God have mercy on your souls. )
God help us.
Lord Jesus, bless the soul of Thy martyr Father Najeeb and all who suffered for their faith these terrible days, and rest them with the saints and glorify them, for they are the salt of our Church.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.
Prayers for my Christian Brothers and Sisters in Iraq and, indeed, all the “muslim” countries.
"Fr. Najeeb is an Iraqi Dominican who lived with me in Fribourg last year. He works on some unique manuscripts that the Dominicans have in their priories in Iraq. He is a very kind, generous, exemplary Dominican.
Here is video of Fr. Najeeb praying the Our Father and Hail Mary in Aramaic.
Prayers for God’s blessings.
How wonderful to hear the Our Father spoken in the tongue in which our Lord gave it to us!!! Please Dear God keep your faithful people safe.
