Yei, 29 June, 2022 / 12:54 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Priest ministering in South Sudan’s Yei Diocese is calling on the people of God in the East-Central African country to stop revenge and hatred among themselves and instead free themselves and live together as children of God.
In his June 26 homily at Christ the King Parish of Yei Diocese, Fr. Joseph Arike Eugenio said South Sudanese have neither complimented the freedom Christ gave them nor the one they fought for during their decades of liberation struggle.
“Let us get rid of revenge and hatred from our hearts,” Fr. Arike said, and added, “If we look at our country and the situation we are in today, we have never complimented the freedom Christ gave and the freedom we fought for.”
“When we think about what has happened before independence, we say no we have been oppressed and we become the oppressors and sometimes we go to the extreme,” the South Sudanese Priest said.
The Parish Priest of Christ the King Parish continued, “If God had created us free and we have responded to his call, let us live this freedom to the best.”
