This year’s Easter celebrations presented an opportunity for the Anglican Bishop of Owerri, Rt. Rev. Cyril Okorocha Ph.D. to admonish politicians on forgiveness and tolerance.
In his sermon at the Easter Sunday Eucharist service held at theCathedralChurchof the Transfiguration of Our Lord (CATOL) Owerri, Bishop Okorocha urged the politicians to cultivate the spirit of forgiveness and tolerance, especially when they lose elections genuinely or through rigging.
He said that rather than rig back, they should hand over everything to God.
The prelate described the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death has been described as a sure hope for Christians and the deepest regret for the enemy of mankind,
Anglican Bishop of Owerri, Rt Rev Cyril C. Okorocha Ph.D, who stated this in his sermon at the Easter Sunday Eucharist service held at the Cathedral Church of the Transfiguration of our ‘Lord (CATOL) Owerri, emphasized that if Christians believe and die Christ, they would stand the chance of being raised from their sleep during the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Bishop Okorocha asked Christians, to consider whether they are doing right what God has given them, or created them to do in this world, and whether they are doing such things in a way that would bring honour and glory to God and, according to him, that is what the resurrection message is all about.
He expressed worry that many a time, people would pretend to be helping you when, in fact, they mean to worsen your situation, thus referring to the sour wine which the Jews gave to Jesus when he said that He was thirsty and asked for a drink.
