Lubumbashi, 05 June, 2023 / 9:20 pm (ACI Africa).
The “perfect love” that exists between the three persons of the Most Holy Trinity is a model of communion and relationship that the people of God can emulate, the President of the Conference of Catholic Bishops in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has said.
In his homily during Holy Mass to mark the start of the third National Eucharistic Congress in the Central African nation, Archbishop Marcel Utembi Tapa made reference to the Sunday, June 4 readings, on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity.
“Perfect love between God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,” Archbishop Utembi said, is the kind of love “that must flow through the people of God gathered in our families, our Nation, our Church.”
The President of the National Episcopal Conference of Congo (CENCO) added, “If we are gathered to celebrate the 3rd National Eucharistic Congress, it is to bear witness to this love of God.”
“It is imperative to consolidate love in our families, particularly by strengthening marriages, in the image of the Holy Trinity,” Archbishop Utembi said in reference to the theme of the June 4-11 national Congress, “Eucharist and Family”.
