Please pray for the repose of Fr Lionel Sham, a much loved priest of the diocese of Johannesburg, South Africa, who was kidnapped and murdered the other day. An 18 year old has been arrested and charged. See article in Sowetan.
Fr Sham is the second priest in South Africa to be murdered in less than two weeks. On February 27, a 34-year-old priest from the Jouberton Catholic Church gave a lift to four men aged between 17 and 21 and was stabbed to death.
