A foot for thought

Happy Easter to you all

Anna Nimiriano Editor in Chief Juba Monitor

Dear readers of  Juba Monitor, happy  Easter to you all, as Christians this is a high time to all of us to celebrate the resurrection of our  Lord Jesus Christ who died in the cross and rose up from the dead as it was written in the bible.

Yesterday was a HolyFriday; Catholic Church had a procession from St. Daniel Church up to St. Teresa Cathedral remembering the suffering Jesus Christ went through during those years. Catholic Church has started the Holy week on Thursday as its tradition in the morning was the blessing of the oils and in the evening was the washing of the feet of the Apostles.

What is your suffering now, what do you want Jesus to help you from daily suffering? Today is Saturday and is the time Christians are waiting for the resurrection of Jesus. What are you learning from this Holy week to help you grow in faith and commit to eternal life.

Each and everyone has his or her cross, carry it with faith and say Lord Jesus Christ this is my cross help me to overcome it. If you say it with your whole heart, God will answer your prayers. Any positive request is answerable to God, because He is seeing your heart not your appearance. If He died for your sins what are you going to offer Him as sinners?

Some people had given charity to the needy as part of Easter requirements. However, we need to understand the importance of this week in our life as Christians, if you don’t understand; you will see Easter like any event in a year. People fasted for 40 days, it had started last month and is ending on Sunday with the celebration of Easter. All what people were doing, it was because they believed in this and actaccording to the bibleguidance to us in our daily work. Soon we can haveRamadan celebrations, at the moment they are fasting and praying.

May God bless us all.
