Juba, 25 September, 2023 / 4:45 pm (ACI Africa).
There is need for Christians to foster supportive relationships, taking deliberate efforts to guard themselves from envy, a Catholic Priest ministering in South Sudan’s Catholic Archdiocese of Juba has said.
In his Sunday, September 24 homily at St. Theresa Kator Cathedral of Juba Archdiocese, Fr. Gabriel Asida Andrew reflected on the Gospel Reading of the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time about the householder who hired laborers for his vineyard at different times of the day and gave them the same pay.

“You need to welcome your brother or sister into the Church because we are not supposed to be begrudging our brothers and sisters, being envious for nothing. Heaven is meant for all of us,” Fr. Asida said, and emphasized, “Don’t begrudge a brother or sister.”
The Rector of the Catholic Cathedral in South Sudan’s capital city continued, “If we want to experience this new kingdom of God, we the baptized, we who are welcome into this new kingdom called the Church of Christ, should begin to live in love because our God is love Himself.”
