The Metropolitan Cathedral of Managua suffered a fire this Friday after a person who had not identified entered one of their chapels and launched a Molotov cocktail inside. This event did not result in any casualties.
The Archdiodecis of Managua stated in a statement that this person entered the Chapel of the Blood of Christ in the cathedral, where “the sacred and venerated image of the Blood of Christ is preserved and the Blessed Sacrament is on display in his tabernacle”.
“A completely condemnable act of sacrilege and desecration, so we have to remain in constant prayer to defeat the evil forces,” added the archdiocese in the text published about her report on the social network Facebook.
Witnesses quoted by the Nicaraguan newspaper ‘La Prensa’ stated that the hooded man entered and said, “I’m coming to the blood of Christ,” before launching the Molotov cocktail in the chapel.
