Boko Haram Have Been Forgiven – Kaduna Catholic Diocese

The Bishop of Kaduna Catholic Diocese, Most Rev. Mathew Ndagoso, yesterday said that the Church (Catholic) in the state had forgiven dreaded Islamist fundamentalist, Boko Haram, over the series of attacks on catholic churches in the state.

The cleric said they decided to forgive the sect since Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day as a peacemaker, stressing that forgiveness is one of the reasons why Christmas is celebrated.

Ndagoso said, “As we celebrate Christmas, we remember the killing of our members and bombing of our churches, particularly Saint Rita Catholic Church, Ungwan Yero, Badarawa, Kaduna. We can only pray for the souls of the departed to rest in peace.

“We thank the state government, individuals and different organisations for standing behind us during these turbulent times.

“There is nothing we can do to our enemies but to forgive them. This Christmas time. We must show love and forgive one another for peace to reign in our society.

“We should remember that over 2,000 years, during Jesus time on earth. He faced a similar persecution, humiliation and death in the hands of those that were supposed to love Him, but even at that He forgave them. He is born for our sake, and He died for our sake.

“So violence, being it religious, political, economic and social, has been there long time ago in the history of humanity.”
