I urge Christians and particularly Catholic faithfuls to remain resolute in Christ’s love with one another and even strangers. They should be earthly representatives of Jesus Christ everywhere they live.
“And I want Christians, using this Sunday as a point of contact, to pray for peaceful elections in 2022 and 2023, pray for the direction of God in choosing their representatives and pray for general peace to be restored to the country that is being threatened by violence and unnecessary killings.
