#BreakingNews Catholic Priest infected with Ebola is Cured as Diocese Rejoices! Video
Fr. Lucien Ambunga to Itipo, had been battling Ebola for weeks. But now he has been cured.
A photo of him in quarantine went viral on social media. In the photo he receives a blessing from the Archbishop Coadjutor of Kinshasa, Monsignor Fridolin Ambongo Besungu.
FR. LUCIEN AMBUNGA was quoted as saying:
“What can I say now? It’s not a lot, but it’s what is in my heart: it is joy, since they said that I was already dead, but the Lord showed me grace and I came back to life.”
Masses had been canceled for weeks but now the diocese of Mbandaka-Bikoro, has now come back to its pastor. Fr. Lucien has a message;
“Now, what I have to do first, is make my parish aware that this virus exists (Ebola), they have to accept that. They have to accept, in case they are sick, to go quickly to the hospital, like I did. Then they will have an 80 percent chance of being cured like me, and to return to the community like me.”
A member of the World Health Organization, Julienne Anoko said,
“We need to take care of their reintegration because many of them are being stigmatized by their communities, because the communities don’t know. They are afraid.”
The Congo has been trying to contain Ebola for about a month, almost 50 infections have been recorded that have cost the lives of about 30 people.
