Love of God and of neighbour sums up the entire laws of God, says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He notes that true religion hinges on sincere love of God which ultimately has social consequences. There cannot be any true worship that does not involve agape love that moves one to act for the good of humanity. He invites us to continue to grow in the love of God and humanity while praying for the blessings of the most beneficent God on you. Amen!
