“We have lived through a crisis for a long time now and people may lose hope. The real appeal I have is for ministers of God, the Priests, to be messengers of hope,” Bishop George Nkuo said in his homily during the Eucharistic celebration.
“As agents of hope, we Priests, in the spirit of love must endeavor to widen our horizon of those to whom we minister. We must encourage them to be brave and courageous because our Risen Lord is with us even now,” the Bishop said during the May 28 celebration that took place at St. Theresa’s Cathedral, Kumbo.
According to him, Priests need to “assure the people that Christ has not abandoned them and that even this virus that is threatening the whole world, will come to pass.”
If Priests exhibit the kind of leadership that fosters hope among the people of God, the Bishop said, members of their respective congregations will gain “the ability to recover from the crisis and move on.”
