#BreakingNews Catholic Priest Burned with Acid by Woman while hearing Confession in Cathedral

In Nicaragua  a woman gravely injured a priest by throwing sulfuric acid on him as he heard her confession in the Cathedral of Managua.  59-year-old Rev. Mario Guevara was in "delicate" condition following the attack, which caused burns on various parts of his body. There were burns on his arms, neck, and face, involving one cheek and one eye; his condition is stable. Police took her into custody. There are tensions between the church and Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega. Ortega has accused the church's bishops of involvement in what he called a coup
Please Pray for his healing, and for peace in Nicaragua.
 “Lamento profundamente y con gran tristeza la grave agresión cometida hoy contra el Padre Mario Guevara en la Catedral de Managua. Lo acompaño con mi cariño de hermano y ofrezco mis oraciones por su total recuperación. ¡Jesús y su Madre Santísima protejan a nuestros sacerdotes!”—Bishop Silvio José Baez
