The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins, has called on Nigerians to show more empathy for their fellow citizens and make sacrifice for the common good.
Archbishop Adewale Martins who made this call in his Easter message released Lagos urged them to show concern for the welfare of fellow citizens in emulation of Jesus Christ who made the invaluable sacrifice of His life out of love for humanity.
“In this Easter season, we are once again reminded of the love that made our Lord Jesus Christ to take upon himself the sins of all mankind and was crucified so that we might have eternal life.
“Like Jesus, we too must be willing to make sacrifices for the common good and the growth of our nation.
“We must show more tolerance towards others and accommodate those with points of view that are different from ours so that we can all live together in peace and unity,” he said.
Love, according to him, is the virtue we all need to practice as Nigerians so that we can together fight against the numerous ills plaguing the land and move towards the path of lasting peace and prosperity.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
