“This festival of triumph follows the holy season of Lent, during which the Christian community engaged in fasting, prayers and works of charity. As people of faith, let us continue to practise in our daily lives the lessons of sacrifice, care for the poor, deep spiritual reflection and love for all humankind, irrespective of tribe or religion, observed during the fasting.
“For over 2,000 years, Easter has symbolised the triumph of hope over despair and an affirmation that darkness cannot triumph the plans and wishes of Almighty God". Jesus Christ set an example of sacrifice that has moved men and women through the ages.
“As we celebrate the triumph of Christ, let us embrace all the lessons of Easter, never losing faith in the will of Almighty God, and the triumph of good over evil. Let us uphold each other in our common humanity and pray for peace in our land. Let us do our best to promote harmony in our communities and reject strife in our land. Let hope never depart from our hearts,” he noted.

He mentioned further that Easter calls for dedication to duty, and putting the interest of the others before our personal gains, as Jesus taught us by sacrificing his life for all. We pray to God Almighty that the blessings and lessons of Easter will spread throughout this Municipality and move us all to be better people”. He added.
