Lagos – As Christians in Nigeria join others worldwide to celebrate the Palm Sunday, Rev. Fr Leo Ukwani, has urged them to use God’s creation and man’s invention for positive purposes.
Ukwani said this in his sermon at Jesus The Saviour Catholic Church, Bucknor Estate, Ejigbo, Lagos.
The parishioners had ealier held a procession with palm fronds to proclaim Christ as King of the universe.
Palm Sunday is celebrated annually by Christians worldwide to recall the day Jesus Christ made his triumphant entry on a donkey to Jerusalem, prior to his crucifixion on Good Friday and resurrection on Easter Sunday.
The cleric reminded the parishioners that the Christ they proclaimed through the procession was an opportunity for them to make a self examination of their consciences.
“This is an opportunity for us all to ask ourselves if we have been faithful in our relation with our creator or fallen apart from him and are ready to make amends for our sins,” he added.
