Archbishop preaches courage among the youths

Archbishop Thomas Luke Msusa of Archdiocese of Blantyre has urged the youths in the country to be courageous in serving God.

In his homily during Eucharist celebration at Gambula Parish in Mulanje on Vocations Sunday, Archbishop Msusa expressed a need for the youths to be courageous when answering God’s call to serve Him.

The Archbishop Msusa explained that the youths must take courage to ask God what to do and following Jesus Christ.


“First we were called to be alive, secondly we were called to be Christians and many of us we were baptized. Our baptism signifies a call that we must follow Jesus Christ.” said Msusa.

He further said that the youths must be united among themselves to ensure courage of serving God in various vocations.

“Thomas did not see Jesus Christ because he was alone while the other disciples were in the house, so you must belong to the Church for you to see the Saviour and will be saved within the Church” He added.

Msusa while commending the youths in the country for their support towards people who were affected by floods, He pleaded for prayers from the youths as the country is scheduled to hold tripartite elections on May 21 this year.

Chairperson for the Youth Council Madalitso Kankwamba thanked the Church for the pastoral of the Youths through the Youths Chaplaincy.

Kankwamba further encouraged fellow youths to take church gatherings seriously.
