The Catholic Diocese of Zomba has celebrated the Pontifical Missionary Union, World Day of Consecrated Life and Presentation of the Lord, Child Jesus, at a ceremony held at Zomba Cathedral.
The Vicar General of the Diocese, Fr. Vincent Chilolo, who presided over the celebrations, said Jesus Christ is the light of the world and Christians, through their baptism, taped this light from Christ. He added that Christians also need to be the light of the world by showing love and bringing hope to those that are facing different problems.
He further asked the faithful to pray for each other and protect their faith and Christianity all the time from different situations that may shake them.
Towards the end of the Eucharistic celebration, the Vicar General officially welcomed a new religious congregation, called Carmelite Missionaries, who have just arrived in the Diocese to help in evangelization work.
At the function, different religious congregations were also given a platform to share some information with regards to the process to be followed by those who are being called by God to join them.
