He took up the White Man's Burden

Father Michael Gajere, a Nigerian priest, died during the recent violent protests in northern Nigeria inside a burning parish compound after staying behind to save a group of altar boys from rioters. [See my blog entry TU ES PETRUS.]

My friend Romanreb, The Sage from Texas, sent me this by email. I think it merits its own blog entry:

Father Michael is a true Martyr and will receive his place of Glory in Heaven. Black Father Michael took up the White Man's Burden and died for Western Civilization and the Holy Catholic Faith! St. Michael Gajere, pray for us!
