Be conscious of responsibilities as Christians: Bishops’ Conference

Easter message

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference, in its Easter message, called on Christians to be conscious of their responsibilities as Christians, as they celebrate Easter today.

“…as we celebrate Easter, we need to be conscious of our responsibility as Christians, to help our nation, to pass from a state of instability and from difficulties caused by past conflicts, different natural disasters and the difficulties of the poor who are afflicted by the high cost of living, to passover to better conditions in life,” the message said.

“We need to be committed to ensure the cause of peace and harmony and true reconciliation as well as rehabilitation of everyone whether displaced or affected by the recent natural calamities,” said the message issued by the President- Bishop’s Conference, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith and the Secretary General, Rev. Dr. Norbert Andradi.

“.. we call upon our faithful to not only to pray and celebrate Easter, but also to be more committed to rebuilding this nation on the basis of justice and, inter-racial and religious harmony”, the message went on to say.
