The Orthodox Archbishop of the Holy Metropolis of Kampala and All Uganda, His Eminence Jonah Lwanga has asked Christians to deepen their Christian knowledge and commitment.
Delivering his Christmas homily at St. Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral, Namungoona in Kampala on Christmas, Lwanga said that many Christians in Uganda and elsewhere in the world, had not fully grasped the Christian message of peace, love and justice, which evils like corruption, child-sacrifice and prostitution were still rampant in the country.
“In the name of absolute peace, morals have intentionally degenerates among the people. The economists, politicians, capitalists and academicians have also continued to monopolize the environment. All strategic planning, coordination, education and faith are all being monopolized by some powerful business people and dictators.”
Lwanga also delivered the Christmas message of the Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, Theodorous II, who asked Ugandan Orthodox Christians to shun “unreasonable ideological principles” like jihadism. The Pope also criticized some politicians and businessmen, who sought to dominate the needy and vulnerable people, instead of helping them to come out of their poverty.
Lwanga finally prayed for President Museveni and his family, Kabaka Mutebi, all the cultural leaders and their family, religious leaders and all Ugandans.
