Bishop Anselm Umoren, MSP and Consecrated Men and Women!
Today is the feast day of the presentation of the Lord in the Temple (Luke 2:22-40) and the Episcopal Ordination Anniversary of His Lordship, Most Rev. Anselm Umoren, MSP – the Auxiliary Bishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Abuja, Nigeria. God bless him with good health of mind and body, wisdom, strength and the graces to continue shepherding the flock of God under his care, Amen. More so, today is a day set aside by the Church to celebrate the lives of thousands of our Religious Men and Women, members of the Societies for Apostolic life and other Consecrated Persons. So, we collectively thank God for the gifts of the consecrated persons in the Church, their charisms, ministries and apostolates. May the Lord’s presentation lead to their presentation too before God and for them to be empowered with new zeal to love and serve God and humanity and at the end be honoured with the crown of glory won by Christ’s death and resurrection, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
