In his homily the Archbishop pointed out that God the Loving Father want all mankind to know Him, love Him and work for Him and one another so that at the end, all go back to Him. That is why he sent his only Son Jesus Christ on Earth to show us the way, the truth and the life. By choosing the twelve apostles, Christ wanted to make sure that the work of showing the way, the truth and life to humanity continuous. Since then, this has been done through the laying on of hands and anointing with holy oils. He called upon the ordained to commit themselves with total dedication in this task assigned to them.
