The Archbishop of Kampala Paul Ssemogerere has led the Special Eucharist celebration for Easter Sunday at St. Mary’s Cathedral Lubaga where he has emphasized newness in humanity with the risen Lord.

Archbishop Ssemogerere says Easter the day on which Christians marks the end of Lenten Season that emphasizes; Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, they should be lived in the daily life of any person.

Jesus’ resurrection liberated man from the bondage of sin, restored life and freedom to mankind.

However it’s a pity that this gift is abused through the contrary actions like Corruption, Gun violence, Land grabbing, Domestic Violence.

He also made mention of the targeted use of the social media to tarnish the image of others, character assassination and sexual pervasion.

Archbishop Ssemogerere says such actions compromise the principles of Justice, Peace and Integrity. Let Ugandans acknowledge their mistakes and seek for repentance, Compassion, Reconciliation, Humility, Gentleness and Patience if the country is to be at peace.

The newly sworn in Head of Laity in the Archdiocese of Kampala Mrs Emily Kitto Mwaka in her speech pledged servant leadership in their tenure of office.

Mrs Mwaka said leaders come to serve and ensure fairness to all however this falls short amongst many and society at large.

She says vices like corruption, unfair judgment, indiscipline among others are neither Godly nor show the risen lord.

She prayed for commitment and good stewardship in their service.

The Minister for Higher Education J.C. Muyingo appealed to Politicians and also those aiming at entering the political arena to avoid mudslinging.

Muyingo says clerics have spoken even more during the Easter season for people to repent, love one another, reconcile and love the country.

The former Katikkiro of Buganda Joseph Mulwanyamuli Ssemogerere has applauded the Archbishop of Kampala Paul Ssemogerere for his pastoral visit to Kitalya Prisons because many are in prison because of simple reasons like their political inclination.

Using the same platform at Lugaba Cathedral the leader of National Unity Platform Robert Kyagulanyi called on Ugandans to use Easter to renew their faith in God and in their actions.
