It is the first Catholic Cathedral Basilica East of the Country, where hundreds of faithfuls gather regularly to worship, learn, love and share God's grace and mercy with one another. We look forward to having you at one of our masses soon.


 

         MOST REV. VALERIAN M. OKEKE

       “IF GOD IS FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US” (Rom 8: 31)

 

 

St. Paul made this statement to assure us that we are in God’s hands. The season of Easter is a season of hope. The event of the resurrection of Jesus assures us that God keeps his promises. Therefore, we have reasons to believe and we have reasons to hope. To live without hope is to cease to live, it is to exist without meaning.

In the face of the many challenges facing our society today, especially the increasing insecurity, killings, destruction of properties, economic difficulties, and many more, the virtue of hope seems to be fading gradually. Hope seems to be eluding us. However, nothing brings hopes back to life like the Easter event, Christ has risen from the dead. It was from the darkest depth of the tomb that the joy of Easter arose. The message of the resurrection of Jesus Christ silences the hopelessness of the tomb. St. Paul assures us that if God is for us, no one can be against us. (cf. Rom 8; 31). Our experiences prove to us that God is for us because he has given us his only begotten son. He sent his Son into the world to be our saviour and redeemer. This is sufficient for us to know that God loves us so much that he can never abandon us to the power of evil men and women. No matter who they are. God is on the throne. He is on our side and can never fail us. Nothing is impossible with Him (Lk 1:37).

Therefore, My Brothers and Sisters, let us fix our eyes on him who is the author and finisher of our faith. Let us intensify our prayers and be closer to God. As we pray, we work, we do the needful but not to join the men and women of violence. Always remember that this difficult time will pass, the difficult people too will pass but God has the final word. God who raised Jesus from the dead can handle our problems.

 

 

Happy Easter beloved brothers and sisters, Let's always allow hope to be strong in our lives.

Peace be with you.!!!

Given in Onitsha, at the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity, on the 17th day of April 2022.
