Fr Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria, AMEN, has commenced his journey to the monastery.
Recalls that Mbaka was a few days ago removed from the Adoration Ministry and sent to the monastery to seek God over his calling.
The Adoration Ministry, which was shut down three months ago, was re-opened on Sunday with a fresh directive from the church authority.
In a video on his official Facebook page on Wednesday, the controversial priest urged his followers to remain calm while he proceeds to the monastery.
He appealed to members of the ministry known as adorers to suspend planned protests over his removal, asking them to pray for him.
He said, “Please as I have said, I heard some people are planning to protest. I have not asked anybody to protest for me. And I don’t want to hear that there is any protest done to express anger towards my journey to the monastery.
“Help me fellow adorers to stop any kind of protest that anybody will carry on my behalf to please me. Instead of the protest, or demonstration geared towards helping me, it may jeopardize my priestly call.
“This is a time we shall know real adorers. Please back me with your prayers so that I will go and embark on deeper reflection, sober contemplations and interior waiting on the Lord”.
