Mzuzu, 07 August, 2023 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
The Catholic Bishop of Karonga Diocese in Malawi has invited the Auxiliary Bishop of Mzuzu Diocese not to get tired of “reminding people that Christ is alive.”
“Don't only care for Christians who gather at Church, think also of the lapsed ones and don’t forget children, youth, women and those marginalized, never tire of reminding people that Christ is alive,” Bishop Martin Anwel Mtumbuka told Mons. Yohane Suzgo Nyirenda ahead of his episcopal ordination August 5.
In his homily during Holy Mass at Mzuzu stadium where thousands of Catholic Christians gathered, Bishop Mtumbuka added, “Today you have no time and will of your own but that of Christ.”
“The cross must remind you that Christ was wounded because of our sins. Likewise pour out your spirit for the sake of Jesus and his Church,” the Malawian Catholic Bishop who presided over the Eucharistic celebration and Episcopal Ordination said.
He continued, “The cross must be a sign of your compassion for the afflicted, the voiceless and the suffering.”
