Nicaraguan police broke into Divine Mercy parish the night of Aug. 1 in the town of Sébaco in the Diocese of Matagalpa to shut down one of the five Catholic radio stations closed on Monday by the Daniel Ortega regime.
On Facebook, the parish broadcast live the arrival of the police at the parish doors as well as their entry by force.
The Catholic Channel in Sébaco also broadcast live the police raid on the Infant Jesus of Prague chapel. The station reported that the officers fired shots into the air and launched tear gas canisters to drive away the people that came out to support Father Uriel Vallejos, the director of the media outlet.
“We ask, brothers, please join us in prayer. All those who are at their homes, at this time, please, we ask you to kneel down, light a candle in front of the image of the Virgin Mary. May she protect us with her heavenly mantle,” the announcer said.
