    The NCCB should send out an email to all Catholics through their Bishops, to offer a prayer for this present day martyr. In fact our Holy Father should send out a communication to the Catholics of the World that this man, this Priest is a modern day Saint. We should be praying for him to intercede for us with God, because he certainly could be in Heaven already.
