The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos Archdiocese, Most Reverend  Alfred Adewale Martins   has urged Catholic priests to ensure that the values and virtues of the church are preserved.

He gave the address during the Chrism Mass at Saints Michael, Rapheal and Gabriel Catholic Church (Archangels’), Satellite town.

Archbishop Martins said  Chrism Mass is an opportunity for every priest to renew their priestly vow and commitment to God while rededicating themselves to the service of God and humanity.

“What they have renewed today should be kept afresh, and the light should shine incessantly in them, so that they shepherd the people of God in the right direction,” the Cleric stated.

The Archbishop advised the priests never to be distracted but remain faithful to their calling.

Commenting on the Easter celebration and the state of the nation, the  Archbishop said  Easter is an expression of hope and that by the grace of God, whatever is dead in mankind, will resurrect and come back alive.
