“Sacrifice must come from us because those who brought to us faith have sacrificed souls after souls,” Archbishop Ameyu said, adding that “those who succeed are people who sacrifice a lot in their lives because when you sacrifice for something you will really be successful in whatever you sacrifice doing it.”
He went on to cite the teaching of Jesus Christ about the Good Shepherd, saying, “We must always proclaim the good news of Christ through sacrifice in our lives as Christians.”
"We must prophesy ourselves to be good shepherds, good shepherds as teachers, doctors not only as Priests; good shepherds as fathers of families, good shepherds as mothers in the home, good shepherds as leaders who lead people to goodness the way each and every one of us wants to be," Archbishop Ameyu said during the October 10 event.
The 58-year-old South Sudanese Archbishop who started his Episcopal Ministry in March 2019 as the Bishop of Torit Diocese further said, “God will give us the spirit for us to be together and to build ourselves more and more as a nation and Church.”
He added, “Remember all the miracles of Christ are possible with people who only have opened themselves with faith.”
“All the gifts we received are only possible through our openness and participation,” the South Sudanese Archbishop said, and added, “May God grant us this spirit because whenever we ask Him for something that we truly desire with all our hearts, we will receive it exactly as we desire.”
