Luanda, 06 December, 2023 / 8:56 pm (ACI Africa).
On the First Sunday of Advent marked on December 3, Catholic Bishops in Angola have called for vigilance, and called on the people of God in the Southern African nation to pray for and foster peace in their respective families.
In his homily at the Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral of Malanje Archdiocese, Archbishop Luzizila Kiala said peace and good relations within families are conditions that allow the Lord's mercy.
“Create good relationships within yourselves; live in peace in families and establish good relationships with everyone,” Archbishop Kiala said, and added, “To be vigilant is to be awake and in prayer.”
He continued, “Vigilance means living responsibly in relation to Christ, being responsible for knowing that he will come, knowing how to respond on the spot.”
“To be vigilant is to be able to detect everything that can affect us on the way to the Lord, that can spoil our journey with the Lord,” Archbishop Kiala further said.
