His Grace, Archbishop Omar Rojas, Metropolitan of South America for the Old Roman Catholic Church, Latin Rite has requested special prayers for his safety as well as that of his clergy. One of his priests has received a death threat and Archbishop Rojas has himself received death threats. Unfortunately, Columbia has experienced much violence due to drug related crimes and issues of corruption. This comes in the wake of frequent murders of priests--19 in the last five years. We request all clergy, laity, and people of goodwill to offer their prayers for the safety and success of the Old Roman Catholic Church in Columbia.
