Odama added that showing love to each other can bring peace in the country
The Archbishop of Gulu Archdiocese who also doubles as the chairman of Uganda Episcopal Conference (UEC), John Baptist Odama has asked christians in Acholi sub-region to pray for peace in South Sudan.
Odama was speaking at a joint way of cross which attracted thousands of believers who turned up for the event.
The way of cross started at Christ Church parish of diocese of Northern Uganda and ended at Saint Basil, the great orthodox Parish in Layibi division, Gulu municipality.
The journey which brought all the three denominations of Catholic, Anglican and the Orthodox Church together is held every year to emulate the suffering of Jesus Christ.
Odama on his message emphasised that the way of the cross should help the believers to pray for the citizens of South Sudan who are suffering due to the war in their country.
“There is no peace in South Sudan, and the way of cross should help us to pray for them so that God gives peace to the people of South Sudan” Odama said.
Odama added that showing love to each other can bring peace in the country, adding that people should adopt that act of charity for peace to prevail in their life time.
