Nampula, 21 October, 2020 / 8:15 pm (ACI Africa).
The Archbishop of Mozambique’s Nampula Archdiocese has, on the occasion of the Priestly ordination in his See, encouraged Priests to always seek to be authentic and closer to the people of God under their pastoral care.
Speaking at the Sunday, October 18 ordination ceremony of Fr. Ramiro Xavier da Rosa, Archbishop Inácio Saure said that the world is in need of Priests who are truly men of God.
“Priesthood must be lived in a coherent, intelligent and humble way, seeking to be authentic, integral and closer to the people of God,” Archbishop Inácio said in his address at Our Lady of Fatima Cathedral of Nampula Archdiocese.
He added, “The Church today needs priests who are truly men of God, intelligent and wise. Priests must also seek to be witnesses of the life of poverty, respecting their celibate life.”
