The Bishop of Soroti Catholic Diocese His Lordship Most Rev. Dr. Joseph Eciru Oliach has called on the Christians to stop being stumbling blocks in Priests Holiness.
“If a Priest calls you and asks you of anything that doesn’t make you or him Holy run away. If you even suspect unholy looks, unholy conversation, run away, do only what makes you and him (Priest) Holy,” he asked Christians.
Bishop Eciru made the remarks while celebrating the Chrism Mass on Tuesday held at St. Patrick’s Parish Madera and animated by Soroti Catholic Diocese Laity Association (SCALA) under the theme: “we are anointed to anoint God’s people”
He noted that Priests have the responsibility of sanctifying God’s people and to connect them to meet with the Lord.
“The Priest’s work is to make saints. Without Priests there will be no Saint in the world,” he said.
Bishop Eciru further called on Christians to support the work of the Priests noting that the Holiness of the Priest helps the Christians to be Holy.
Meanwhile the Vice President of the Republic of Uganda Her Excellency Jessica Alupo has donated two bottles of wine and hosts to each Priest of Soroti Catholic Diocese.
The support was announced by Bishop Eciru noting that VP Alupo informed him that the gifts to the Priests is her Easter offer to her Spiritual Father’s.
