The Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has decried a habit of telling lies and deceit as a serious problem eating up this country.
Dr. Lwanga says the whole society has failed to live to the national motto; For God and My Country that is why telling lies, abuse of theirs and disrespect of elders and leaders is eminent.
He said this in his address in the lighting of the Christmas tree evening at his residence Lubaga organized by Lubaga Cathedral Foundation.
Dr. Lwanga said for them as church leaders they must live to the virtue of secrecy but its abused by those they lead challenging them to God receive the new born Jesus with a repentant mind.
He singled out the press for its misleading publication that Pope Francis was in the move to change the lord’s prayer “Our father” explaining that he just noted a challenge within the prayer at the point “don’t lead us into temptation” saying it was an interpretation error since translations from Jesus’ language Aramaic was difficult but the Spanish and French have already changed it. He said the pope just called for revising of the original text on the prayer but not changing it.
He hailed Lubaga Cathedral Foundation started in 1989 by the late Cardinal Emmanuel Nsubuga for the work it’s doing to maintain the Cathedral, urging them to attract more members and think of investing in the Catholic Church projects like Centenary Bank, Pax insurance and Radio Sapientia among others. He received Christmas gifts and also awarded certificates of appreciation to the foundation members and institutions that support it.
