Christ is the true light and those who follow him live in the light, says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. Precisely because God's love for His world is beyond measure, He gave His Son as the greatest gift for our salvation, in spite of our unfaithfulness. He remains ever faithful. Once more, in this season of grace we are invited to walk in the light of Christ, the face of the Father's mercy and be vanguards of His love as you experience the renewing mercy of God.
