Unconfirmed Reports - Fr. Thomas Uzhunnalil was crucified by ISIS on Good Friday

Conflicting reports are circulating online as to whether ISIS have gone ahead with their threat to crucify the Salesian priest Fr Thomas Uzhunnalil who was kidnapped during the assault which left four sisters of the Missionaries of Charity killed in Yemen.

Austrian media are reporting that Cardinal Schonborn confirmed it during the Easter Vigil in Vienna on Saturday night.

Until such time as it is confirmed let us continue to pray for him and all the victims of the bombing in Lahore in Pakistan; and if the report proves true, let us sing a Te Deum for him and pray for the conversion of the perpetrators:
