“Let us live lovely as God wills and designs. Righteousness is the key to Heaven, not number of prayers offered. Let us pray and ask God to help us repent. For, there is no repentance in hell. May the soul of the deceased, Mr. Stephen Chukwuemeka Nwoye, rest in God’s bosom”, the Catechist admonished.
He consoled the bereaved family, as he enjoined them to take solace in God, as well as enliven the good legacy of their husband, father and brother who he described as a man of peace and benevolence.
