Catholic Church Replies Mbaka: You’re Lucky We Didn’t Close Down Adoration Ministry

catholic close down adoration ministry

Feb 1st, 2016 – Catholic Church Replies Mbaka: You Are Lucky We Didn’t Close Down Adoration Ministry,You Have Broken Our Rules

Here is an official statement from Rev. Father  Ralph Madu on behalf of the Catholic church on Rev Father Ejike Mbaka’s transfer.

“His posting should have been a privilege, not a punishment – which the Bishop can do because he has the power. If he (Mbaka) says it’s a punishment, then it’s open for further investigation. Posting is a regular thing, a priest can be transferred after two, three, four, or more years, it depends on the discretion of the Bishop.

“That ministry (Adoration Ministry) is his private ministry, it does not belong to the church. Overseeing a parish is a full time job. Overseeing a ministry is a bigger task. If the church decides to take him somewhere where he’ll have more time to carry out his ministry, how is it punitive? That should not be the language.”

Mr. Madu said Mr. Mbaka had done things that were unacceptable to the church in the past but received no punishments for them.

“He is supposed to be a missionary. What if the Bishop had closed down the ministry‎, which is within his power to do? Sometimes, transfers can be for the good of the priest as something can be going wrong which he might not be aware of. The Bishop is free to move any priest at any time, it is his prerogative.”

Politics in the church…. End time signs.

    Politics in the house of God. God have mercy on them because they don’t know what they are doing. The Holy book said ‘touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm’ this does not only mean physical harm but also spiritual, emotional, mental, etc. harm to the anointed man of God. My able reverend father, do not take anything they do or say to heart, just pray for them. God bless you.

    It is the oath he took on his ordination day to be obedient to the catholic church, it is not new to him or punishment in any way. Long live catholic church

    man is a political ****** and as such everybody irrespective of your profession remains a political being after all everyone above 18years has the right to vote in an election.
    the fact remains undisputed that most priests are jealous of him but he gave them the ground to tackle him.
    Priests are supposed to speak less of politics in any country,
    My comments are pruned to further investigation…

    They should have sent him direct to the heart of his ‘beloved one nigeria’ at Sambisa forest where his fellow ‘one nigerians’ need his gospel of ‘one nigeria’!
    When people abuse God they think they are smart. Mbaka has lost the respect of many Biafrans who thought he was a real ‘prophet of God’. No prophet praises a killer of God’s children not to talk of winning and dining with the same hand with blood of millions of innocent defenseless Biafrans!
    Imagine Elijah praising King Ahab after his evil?
    If Catholic, Anglican (Evil British church), and other Christian denominations fails to quickly stand up boldly in support of Biafrans to be free from oppression and bondage, they will loss Biafrans respect and may be kicked out of Biafra land when the people are liberated! If Christ came to free people then the church Must be champion of freedom!

      Hello Biafran,
      It is you who need deliverance from the spirit of hatred, lies, false accusation, dominance,and war like spirit. What will you call Col. Chukemaka Ojukwu who cajole the Igbos to a failed war in the 60s, and when the war really ugly and intensified, he ran out of the war zone to a neighboring nation. In the end over a million innocent and poor Ndigbo lost their precious lives in the war that Ojukwu created. In case you don’tknow Mr. dumb Biafran, no member of Ojukwu families lost his or her life during the war; why because he was smart enough to move all members of his family out of the war zone. Rev. Father Mbaka is warning those fellow jobless Igbo youths that are been used by criminal politicians to stop your evil and unnecessary agitation or tribalism, you guys dislike the truth but worship crooks who looted money that was budgeted for our wellbeing. Time will tell who is telling you guys the truth and those playing and toying with your ignorance to achieve their wicked agenda. Rev. Father Mbaka will soon be celebrated for standing against economic injustice, embezzlement, and corruption of our leader that have caused ordinary Nigerian citizens hardship, joblessness, setbacks, poverty, shattered education, insecurity, and dignity. The Igbo youths must stand up for their right to demand accountability, good governance, and corruption free government from their various states governor and other elected officials. Creating public nuisance in form of stupid Biafran agitation will further isolate the good Igbo people from other Nigerian tribes. There can never be a regional president in Nigeria forever , meaning, for a Yoruba, Hausa/Fulani, Ijaws, and Igbo to be elected a president, that person must win the trust and support of all regions of Nigeria. As you can see, Biafran agitation and hatred for Yoruba and Hausa/Fulani is a counter productive idea for Ndigbo political advancement in the 21st century. Please my people wise up and stop playing and acting dumb.

        God bless you my dear Omekehinde, you have spoken well. I am from Igbo, and I am not intersted in this biafran wahala and would not allow any of my love one to involve in it. the Igbos should learn from the past. he who have ear let him hear.

        Rev. Mbaka is a real man of God and nobody can stop him. God has been using him. It is because he tell people what they don’t want to hear, the truth, that is why they are witch-hunting him.But my bible tells me, ‘IF GOD BE FOR YOU WHO WILL BE AGAINST YOU’, God is with Rev. Mbaka and no body will take that away from him.

      Biafran, u must have been under the influence of some wierd grass for you to call the Anglican Church the Evil British Church. The contention here is never Christian denominations, and as such I will have to leave you with your distorted and benighted outlook. Pray I don’t get to reply u dis someday.

    I agreed that posting is a regular thing just like u said but Fr. Mbaka ve been in that parish for 20years without transfer so why the sudden change? What exactly caused his transfer and demotion? Fr. Mbaka u are being persecuted for ur prophecy before the presidential election. Its obvious that Catholic bishops which are dominated mostly by igbos never expected Buhari to emerge as the president of this nation not that u were involved in politics. Most of them have been dinning with corrupt politicians, they are hypocrite, wolf in sheep clothing. God almighty will surely vindicate u in Jesus name. The bible made it clear that judgement will start frm the church. Pls accept ur posting in good faith and let the good lord fight for u.

    Mbaka is a Rev Father who suddenly turns into a politician using words that he is not suppose to be using just like he said he is going to suffer in the place they transferred him to he is a man who calls himself a follower of Jesus using such word the day you decide 2 become a priest that day you also decided to bear what ever comes ur way he Mbaka saying he is going to suffer was a wrong statement anyway that is his way always talking out of point just want to let his religion down for some ni**as

    1) Adoration permanent site is at Emene. Mbaka is transferd to Emene. I think this gives him a closer monitoring over his ministry.

    2) Whether or not this tranfer is punitive is of little significance. The bishop merely excercised his authority and that is fair.

    3) The Bishop appears not to be familiar with where his episcopal authority terminates. He could demote Mbaka to a man-servant and no hell would be raised. But to say he could close down Adoration Ministry is a mouthful. He CANNOT do that. The ministry is Mbaka’s private endeavour; the Catholic Church cannot lay half a claim on it

    His posting was not a punishment Catholic Church has norms nd values and Fr Mbaka took a vow of obedience and he must obey the authority

    One thing I know is; ONE WITH GOD IS WITH MAJORITY”………whatever the case may be that prompted his transfer like a wife with ill-atititudes; the end will surely justify the means.
    God’s own will superceed every other will””””””it might surprise those witchhunting him that God only used them to fulfil his promises concerning this Rev.F life
