Rev. Fr. Mulungo Bernard, on Thursday, said death should be a strong reminder to the living about the certainty of their departure on a day and time that is only known by God.
The Priest made the call at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Cable Point, Asaba, Delta State while delivering a Homily at a Service of Songs in honour of Ezinne Mrs Grace Ego Onyia, mother of Hon. Dcn. Anthony Onyia, Special Assistant, Political to the Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
He said, “we are h<span;>ere to pray for Mrs Grace Ego Onyia; she was a woman of faith: she believed in Christ and so, her departure was a glorious one.
“Mrs Onyia lived for 85 good years and she lived as a true Christian.
“We should pray for her and pray for the family she left behind.
“Her departure is a reminder that one day we will go; are we ready to go and meet our Lord, Jesus Christ?
“If we go, how will people remember us?
“We have to be ready at all times because f you die in the Lord, you will resurrect with the Lord.”
