A true child of God is always a herald of good news and a source of consolation, comfort and goodness says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He notes that since we await our Lord who is the hope and comfort of His people, we ought to be his true reflection. Thus, assuring us that in His presence is the obscurities of life illuminated and our wellbeing assured, he prays that Christ finds us prepared. May God's everlasting favors rest on you always – Amen.
