“THE SAINT WE SAW” – A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF LATE FR. AARON EJIKEMEUWA EKWU
Compiled by Innocent Nwafor
One of those who saw Jesus Christ of Nazareth spoke of him in terms of “what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands….This life was made visible, and we have seen it and bear testimony to it” (1 John 1:1-2).
People often never get tired of telling about things they saw; things they are convinced of; things they touched and became themselves touched deeply.
For some people, and they are not few in this regard, late Fr Aaron Ejikemeuwa Ekwu has become one of those people they encountered and became deeply touched. Hence they never get tired of talking about this simple man with an extra ordinary aura of love and holiness.
Who is this Fr Aaron whom one has described as “The Saint we saw”. Read through this little booklet and some others about him and you will be able to make form your opinion about him or augment what you know already about him.
On my own part, I can only assure you that this little introduction to the life of Fr Aaron Ejikemeuwa Ekwu is not only worth reading but also meditated upon.
