Angola: Catholic Faithful Urged to Deepen Spirit of Prayer

Luanda — The Catholic church priest, Basílio Tchicale, last Sunday here urged faithful to be in the spirit of prayer, in this time of the year, thus enhancing love.

The prelate was speaking at last Sunday's mass, having explained that this was the first Sunday of the Advent, a time that Christians should draw closer to God and follow His commandments, considering

love as the basis.

According to the preacher, Advent means coming or preparation for the feast of Christmas, which for Christians, before worrying about what to eat or drink, they must prepare the hearts for the coming of

Jesus Christ.
