Christians have been asked to embrace fasting as a sacrifice since it is not a death sentence
The call was yesterday made by Rev. Bob Mbabazi Ntegyereize during an Ash Wednesday service at St Peter’s Cathedral Nyakatare.
The service was attended by hundreds of Christians from Bishop’s office Staff, Nyakatare Technical Institute, Nyakatare Primary school and Nyakatare Health Center.
Rev. Mbabazi who is the Diocesan Youth and Children Coordinator as well as the Diocesan Information Officer encouraged Christians to abstain from their earthly desires, repent from their sins, pray often and read the Bible during these 40 days of Lent.
In the same service, Diocese of Kinkizi Bishop Rt. Rev Dan Zoreka called upon the Christians to follow the example of Jesus Christ, who sacrificed His glory to save mankind.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lent season among Christians and it is a great season of reflection onto their lives.
