The bomb attack took place at 11:00 in the morning of this July 31. According to witnesses, the man who entered the temple was wearing a loose light blue shirt under which he hid the explosive.

He asked the exact location of the Blood of Christ chapel on the Cathedral grounds and then went to the indicated place. Minutes later they observed the flames coming out of the chapel.

“They threw a bomb at the image of the Blood of Christ and everything was destroyed,” said Sister Arely Guzmán. “The fire destroyed the tabernacle with the body of the Lord, the consecrated host and sacred chalice, the image of the Blood of Christ and the entire chapel is destroyed,” said the nun.

For its part, the Archdiocese of Managua said in a statement that the relevant investigations are currently underway and that they have no further information on the case.

The bomb attack in the Cathedral of Managua comes two days after unknown persons desecrated the chapel of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, in Nindiri, east of Managua.

On that occasion, the Archdiocese of Managua explained in a statement that the unidentified persons not only stole different sacred items, but also broke images, upended the tabernacle, trampled the consecrated hosts, broke benches, caused damage to furniture, doors and pipes and not being enough with these outrages, they also made their physiological needs over what they could.”
