Lubango — The retired bishop of Lubango Archdiocese, Zacarias Camuenho, last Saturday in Lubango City, southern Huila Province, called on the faithful and priests to refrain from acts of tribalism, racism and other ills within the church and the communities.
The prelate, who was speaking at a mass of presbytery and diaconal ordination, said it is necessary for the faithful and priests to adopt a behavior of unity and brotherhood, avoiding acts of racism and tribalism.
"Christians must reinforce their faith so we can live in peace and get the pardon of God, since so far many faithful are not able to forgive their fellow human-beings, as well as live with Jesus", said the retired bishop.
He added that the faithful should have faith in God and help others to walk with Jesus, who is the mentor of salvation.
The ceremony ordained as priests the deacons David Tatiano, 28 years old, António Malenga, 39, and Raul Nóbrega Fernando, 29, after concluding their seminary studies in Mexico.
The mass was attended by members of various Catholic communities and local government officials.
