The homeliest of Rev. Fr. Cosmas spoke intensely on how we all love God in our own different ways, but this Rev. Srs. Have practically shown the love they have for God, by giving up the pleasure of the world to serve him. He also encourage the lay faithful to continue to pray for their religious. His Lordship Most Rev. Dr. Matthew Hassan Kukah, Bishop of Sokoto Diocese makes his remarks, emphasizing on the need to continue to pray for the church from distractions and our country Nigeria also. He encouraged the lay faithful to continue their good works, saying he is not expecting perfection from them but their sacrifice and dedications matters a lot.
Finally, He said many are physically working but mentally and spiritually going back in their Christian life, we need to strike balance. He welcomed the two Dominican Srs. That came all the way from United State of America (U.S.A) to celebrate with the colleagues. Sr. Francin Swarzenbeger O.P & Sr. Rita Swarzenbeger O.P
