John, come see me!

Preot

An American had gone to St. Anthony’s monastery in Arizona with his company. At some point, Elder Ephraim comes out of the cell where he confesses the world and asks the young American:

“Do you have my child a good modern working phone?”

“Why do you ask Elder,” the young man asked.

“I want you to call a monastery on Mt. Athos so I can talk to them,” the elder replied.

Elder gave the number of the monastery and said to the young man:

“My child, call in about an hour and when you get a connection, give me the phone to talk.”

Indeed the young man after an hour called the monastery on Mt. Athos and told the monk who answered the phone that Elder Ephraim of Arizona wanted to talk with them. As he said this, the young American was heading towards Elder Ephraim’s cell to give him the phone.

The monk from Mt. Athos was surprised by the phone called and told the young man that Elder Ephraim was there and wanted to talk with him! The young American was shocked! And he hears Elder Ephraim tell him:

“Come on, my child John, so I told you to call so we could talk! I from Mt. Athos and you from Arizona to see what Orthodoxy is and what the grace of the Holy Spirit is. See you soon John!”

That’s what the elder told him and hung up the phone.
Young John was shocked! Frozen like a rock! He went to open the door of Elder Ephraim’s cell but he was not there.

Then he went to his company and began to tell them what happened. And when he finished narrating his story, Elder Ephraim came out of his cell and said to him:

“John, come see me!”

This event became the reason why the young man gave up the world and became a monk at St. Anthony’s monastery.

Ce nuit
J’ai regardé
Longtemps
Comme les flocons
De neige
Viennent
D’embrasser l’air.
J’espère aussi
Comme toi
Que ton
Amour viendra
M’habiller comme
La neige et les
Hivers
Dansantes
De L’Est.

ICYMI: 120 Christians Slaughtered By Muslim Herders In Nigeria – Media Silent

Musllim

(Gateway Pundit) – As media outlets across the world bring you the minute-by-minute updates of the Christchurch mosque shooting in New Zealand, those same outlets have been mostly silent on the recent mass slaughter of Christians in Nigeria by muslim herdsmen. Those attacks have resulted in 120 dead and 140 homes burned to the ground.

The Christian Post reports:

At least 120 people have been killed by alleged Fulani militant attacks since February in the Kaduna state of Nigeria with the latest attacks on Monday resulting in the deaths of over 50 and the destruction of more than 140 homes.

On Monday, 52 people were killed, dozens injured and around 143 homes were destroyed in attacks on the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma and Ungwan Gora in the Maro district of the Kajuru Local Government Area, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide.

The Monday attack followed an attack on Sunday in the Ungwan Barde village in Kajuru in which 17 people were killed and dozens of homes were burned.

In late February, there was another attack in Maro that resulted in the deaths of about 38 Christians and saw homes and a church burned. On Feb. 10, 10 people were killed in an attack in Ungwan Barde as six others were killed in isolated attacks the day before.

CSW, a United Nations-recognized NGO that advocates for persecuted Christians worldwide, reports that victims in the attacks on Monday included women and children. Survivors told the nonprofit that the attackers were separated into three groups. One group shot and killed people, the second set fire to buildings, and a third ran after people fleeing the scene.

Nigeria ranks as the 12th worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution, according to Open Doors USA’s 2019 World Watch List.

In 2018 alone, thousands of Christians were killed by militant Fulani herdsmen, leaving some to say that genocide is occurring in the Middle Belt of Nigeria.

Kaduna state is not alone in suffering from Fulani violence as other states in the Middle Belt have faced it too.

On March 4, Fulani militants in the Benue state reportedly attacked three villages, killing 23 people with bullets and machetes, according to International Christian Concern.

CSW is calling on the Nigerian federal government to address the spike in violence in a “decisive and unbiased manner.”

“The relentless death and destruction is a sad indictment of the continuing failure by both levels of government to fulfill the primary mandate of protecting all its citizens impartially,” Thomas argued.

These claims are backed up by similar reports on Christian Broadcasting Network and The Guardian Nigeria.

CBN reported on the February attack:

Radical Muslims murdered more than 30 Christians in Nigeria last week. This is just the latest account of systematic Islamic violence towards Christ-followers in that country.

The Guardian reports that Fulani herdsmen assaulted the Christians around 4 a.m. in Karamar village in the Maro district of Kajuru.

The herdsman reportedly set fire to several houses and a church. The terrorists then sporadically shot at families trying to escape the blaze, killing 32 people.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) also condemned the deadly assault and urged young Nigerians not to retaliate against the terrorists.

“We have appealed to the youths in the area that there must never be any reprisal. We want to give the security operatives in the state the benefit of the doubt to go after the killers. We don’t want any reprisal attack because the circle of violence and killings will continue,” Rev. Joseph Hayap added.

CBN News reported last year that hundreds of Christians were killed in clashes with the Muslim herdsman.

Last June, Fulani herdsmen, who are mostly Muslim attacked six predominantly Christian villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state. Many of those killed were Christians, and they were reportedly hacked to death.

According to the Global Terrorism Index, Fulani herdsmen have killed more than 60,000 people since 2001.

Are you going to hold your breath waiting for Huffington Post, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Nancy Pelosi, and the Southern Poverty Law Center to condemn these attacks
