ISIS observed Good Friday by crucifying a priest. After attacking a nursing home in Yemen, shooting four nuns and killing seven others, ISIS kidnapped an Indian Catholic priest, Father Tom Uzhunnalil. ISIS promised to crucify him on the day that his Savior was crucified. After torturing him for several weeks, ISIS reportedly carried out their promise.
When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slainfor the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been. (Revelation 6:9-11)
