Barani Eduardo Hiiboro the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Tambura Yambio echoed that this imminent Christmas ought to fill people’s hearts with joy and hope expressly when dioceses, nation and the world encountered devastating year of civil violence, pandemic, hate speeches, rough words, mistrust and natural disasters

‘’Let this coming Christmas fill our hearts with great joy and hope especially  when   our dioceses, nation and the world faced devastating year of civil violence,pandemic, hate speeches, rough words, mistrust and natural disasters’’ he reiterated

Furthermore Barani jagged out that Christians should be prompted that Mary and Joseph also faced many challenges and uncertainties as they suited the Holy family of Nazareth till they were gifted with the Child Lord Jesus Christ from God. They lived with the challenges and the uncertainties until they were blessed

‘’It would be good to remind  ourselves that Mary and Joseph  faced many challenges and uncertainties as they became the Holy family of Nazareth until they were blessed with Jesus Christ who was sent by God. Both lived with the uncertainties of receiving a child from God under circumstances they could not understand. In many ways, this Christmas, perhaps we have experienced and lived amid much uncertainties and confusion. For this reason we should follow the footsteps of the blessed family of Mary and Joseph’’ Barani pointed

However, in his directives, Barani urged Christians to care, forgive and build peace among one another in order to have a positive celebration of the Christmas feast

Barani also lamented that, humanitarian support and introduction of livelihood income generation programs as detergent for violence among the huge unemployed youth must continue
