Are we witnessing to our faith in our everyday life? Today, out of respect for others, we say, we do not carry the cross, we do not have to show that we are Christians. We are Catholic Christians and we have Christian values to defend and pass on to the next generation. Let us not be ashamed to say “I am a Christian” – it is with these words that father BEWA called the faithful during the international Mass celebrated by a group of Oblates from 16 different nationalities.
