Emeritus Bishop of Mansa diocese Aaron Chisha
Emeritus Bishop of Mansa diocese Aaron Chisha has asked the lay faithful to support and encourage the bishops as they carry out their tasks.
His Lordship Chisha said that the bishops though divinely appointed, they face difficult tasks and make sacrifices.
Speaking in his homily when Zambia Catholic bishops held mass with the Catholic secretariat staff in Lusaka, 19th January, 2016, Bishop Chisha added that bishops also take difficulty decisions out of love but they get blamed.
“Support the bishops and God will give you abundant blessings” He noted.
And in welcoming Bishop elect for Mpika diocese, Monsignor Justin Mulenga, Bishop Chisha said the Catholic church is pleased to have a new bishop for Mpika diocese.
“We should be happy in the church that we have a new bishop. It has taken long to have one because the church makes consultations. The church could have found one from Mozambique, Sudan or India but it has appointed one from Kasama Archdiocese” He said.
Meanwhile Bishop Chisha has said that Holy mass is a beautiful place for brothers and sisters to come together to ask for blessings from God.
And making reference to scriptural reading where King David could not harm King Saul, Bishop Chisha said that is how society should be.
“Do not harm even those have who have wronged you. Forgive wholeheartedly those that have wronged you” He said.
