The Good Friday has been celebrated lowly in Uganda due to the Corona Virus. The newly consecrated archbishop of the Anglican church in Uganda, Dr. Kazimba Mugalu has urged Ugandans not be afraid!
Do not be afraid, even in the face of coronavirus, an imminent threat to the human race, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda the Most Rev. Samuel Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu has told Christians.
His message, delivered in commemoration of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion made reference to scriptures from the Biblical book of Mathew, where two accounts of Jesus’ resurrection used the same statement amid terrifying events of the day.
The first reference is based on an interaction between an Angel, Mary Magdalene and another Mary who went to see the tomb, where Jesus was buried. However, they were suddenly greeted by an earthquake as an Angel descended from heaven and, rolled away the stone.
The Archbishop noted that this year’s Easter is very unique since there is no gathering together to celebrate Jesus’ victory over death. But, he added, that the Church continues to seek God’s face to intervene in the current situation and heal the land from locusts, diseases, all forms of suffering and death, as a result of coronavirus disease.
He added that all Church of Uganda dioceses will hold a massive general Thanksgiving, on the first Sunday after all restrictions on Church, gatherings are lifted.
