The Auxiliary Bishop of Onitsha, His Lordship Most Rev. Denis Isizoh urged faithful to reflect their Christianity in their daily lives.
The Prelate gave the advice while preaching a Homily during his pastoral visit to Holy Family Parish, Oraukwu.
According to him, Christianity and Holiness should not end at Sunday Holy Masses, but should be evident in all our human endeavours.
“As Christians we should be easily identified by the kind of love we exude every moment of our lives and how patient we can be, describing these virtues as kind of sacrifices we owe to the world.
“As people of God, we should not relent in showing the light of Christ by living an honest life, helping one another, being charitable even to the strangers, shunning all kinds of sins etc.
On the other hand, the Bishop eulogized the Parish Priest Fr. Francis Izuakor for his sincere commitment to his priestly assignment, disclosing that Fr. Izuakor performed excellently well at Igbedor where he worked last before coming to Oraukwu, urging him not to relent.
The Bishop commended the traditional ruler of Oraukwu, Igwe Barrister Dr. Emeka Onuora (Igwe Chinyere Eze 11) for his usual support and his full participation in church activities, describing him as a good king.
The Parish Priest Fr. Izuakor in his remarks shortly after the Mass, poured encomiums on the Bishop for visiting and encouraging them and also appreciated the parishioners for their usual magnanimity.
Igwe Onuora who spoke to our correspondent said he was elated over the visit of the Prelate, urging the people of his town to continue to support every effort to sustain peace and progress in Oraukwu Town.
Chief Ifeanyi Patrick Muojekwu, in his contribution, described the visit of the Prelate as huge blessing and favours.
