Nicaragua The Priest asks the whole world to see him. Let us DISSEMINATE.

A Nicaraguan priest has denounced intimidation by the police, who surrounded his parish in the city of Masaya, cut power and water to the building and prevented family members of political prisoners from attending a Mass in their honor.

Mass was celebrated Nov. 14, in Masaya, but only a small number of families could enter the parish. Videos shared on social media show Father Edwing Roman attempting to bring the families through police lines in front of St. Michael Parish.

“We only want to celebrate the Eucharist,” he can be heard saying as police blocked his path.

He later told the press from the doors of his parish, “Let the world see and know that there is not freedom of worship in Nicaragua.”

Father Roman then added in a message directed at President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo, “(They) are showing their weakness, that they’re in an unstable position and that one of these day Nicaragua will toss them into the trash bin of history.”

Protesters rose up against Ortega in April 2018, but were violently repressed as he clung to power and accused them of “coup mongering” and “terrorism.”

Human rights groups and international organizations put the death toll from the protests at nearly 300. Amnesty International accused the police and paramilitaries loyal to Ortega of employing a policy against protesters of “shoot to kill.”

Nicaragua’s bishops have called for peace and promoted a national dialogue, which broke down because of “a lack of consensus among the parties.” Priests also opened parishes to provide shelter and assistance to wounded protesters and have accompanied families of the victims.

The bishops themselves have come under attack and attempts at intimidation; Auxiliary Bishop Silvio Jose Baez of Managua, an outspoken critic of the Ortega regime, was called to Rome for his own safety in April.

Bishop Baez tweeted Nov. 15 that he had spoken to Father Roman and the situation had calmed down, but not after the police cut power and water to the parish. The victims’ families who had remained inside the church after the Mass were carrying out a hunger strike, he said.

At least 13 individuals trying to bring supplies to the hunger strikers were rebuffed by police and later arrested, according to media reports.

Father Roman has come to prominence as priest attending to the victims of government repression, but also being intimidated for his work. catholicphilly.com/…/nicaraguan-auth…

RED DRAGON Strengthening of police and army controls on the activities of the Catholic Church

"The world sees and knows that there is no freedom of worship in Nicaragua!" says Father Edwin Roman, parish priest of San Miguel parish of Masaya, who cannot enter the church because is blocked by police and army members. Videos circulating on Social Media denounce the ultimately even stronger repression against the Catholic Church in Nicaragua by law enforcement. "We just want to celebrate a Eucharist", says Father Edwin Roman in a video, addressing the more than 30 agents who surrounded the church yesterday afternoon.
The mass, planned in particular to give comfort to mothers and relatives of political prisoners, was then celebrated without most of the family members, who were denied access and who remained outside. Only a small group, who had arrived early, managed to enter the church.
It is not the first time that the police follow or prevent the normal activities of the Catholic Church in the city of Masaya. The monthly meeting of the priests took place on November 12, but the venue of the meeting since the early hours of the morning was surrounded by policemen who prevented some of them from entering.
Father Edwin recently, speaking on television (see Fides, 17/10/2019), recalled a reality: "The attacks that the Church is experiencing today exceed the attacks of those who were victims in the 1980s during the civil war in our country. In the 1980s there was the dictatorship of Somoza, this instead is a dictatorship against unarmed people".
Through Twitter, Father Roman showed the messages with the death threats he received in recent days, including one recalling the assassination of Archbishop Romero: "What happened to Mgr. Oscar Arnulfo Romero in El Salvador, must happen to you, a bullet is waiting you ...". (CE) (Agenzia Fides, 15/11/2019) www.fides.org/…/66959-AMERICA_N…

If that were a Muslim or Jew attempting to worship you would hear a global out cry, but because it is Catholic-Christian total silence. It is in fashion for bigots to attack the Catholic-Christian faith but no other religion!!
