For many religious faithfuls, Monsignor Aloysius Ngobya was more than an exemplary priest; he was not just a shepherd of his flock, but a miracle worker.
For the people of Kitovu, Masaka, where he spent most of his years of service to the catholic church, Ngobya should have been named a saint years ago.
While he lived, it is said, one day he walked in a rainstorm and not a drop wet his clothes.
The late priest is described as someone that lived a very simple life, but changed many of his church flock’s spiritual lives. In fact, some say the priest is not really dead.
The priest died in 1986, but the Vatican and the catholic church worldwide has for years been trying to build a case for the priest’s canonization. In March, his body was exhumed and it is said that decades since he’s been dead, most of his vital organs are still intact, thus strengthening investigation efforts into whether Ngobya should really be named a saint.
This edition brings you the debate surrounding the investigation into the possibility that the priest should indeed be declared a saint.
