Fr Mbaka is unnecessarily becoming notorious.
His Bishop invited and advised him to consider going on retreat to avoid more heating up the polity. Nobody held or kidnapped him. Only him can say where he went after the meeting.
If Mbaka is sick or dead, Enugu Diocese has enough priests, holier than Mbaka, to cover up for him. Adoration ground belongs to Enugu Diocese.
But Fr Mbaka lied to his members that the Bishop was planning to close the adoration.
He left the meeting with Bishop after they suggested to him to go on retreat and away from public domain until political dusts he raised settle.
He didn’t want to obey the bishop which ordinarily is a capital punishment in Catholic Church.
The bishop is the fullness of priesthood. All priests under him are bound by Canon law to obey and respect him at all times.
Some good advise and suggestions to Mbaka are what he decided not to follow, especially going on retreat. He rather lied to the people that the bishop want to close the adoration ground.
You know here is a lawless society. Mbaka is capitalizing on ignorance of his followers to use them fight the Church.
If he is tired of being Catholic priest, he can as well leave the church.
We are not going to change Canon law to suit Mbaka and his followers.
My only blame to the Bishop of Enugu is that he has being too lenient to Mbaka, and now he’s taking it as weakness.
That’s why he has impetus to even discuss publicly what bishop told him privately, even when it is for his own good.
Joining IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu into this is both joke and mildly speaking, stupid. That’s only to whip up sentiments and escape the truth of the matter.
Enugu Diocese is the owner of Adoration ground not Mbaka, and the bishop as the sole administrator of the diocese has every right to close the adoration ground any day.
That’s how Catholic church works. It has been like that even before Mbaka was born and would continue to be like that even after we all die.
