Kohima, April 24 (EMN): A three-day 12th triennial convention of the Angami Catholic Union (ACU) culminated on Sunday with the celebration of the Holy Mass led by the Bishop of Kohima, Rev. Dr. James Thoppil, at Christ the King Church in Kohima.

Delivering his homily to a gathering of three thousand people on the second Sunday of Easter, the Bishop said that the day is celebrated as the ‘Divine Mercy Sunday.’

Making a reference to the three readings from the Bible which was read ahead of the sermon, the Bishop stated that it is a reminder of God’s infinite love and mercy. He stated that the disciples of Christ, with the spirit of truth, were sent to continue the mission and to further reveal the works of God to the world.

In this regard, he challenged the believers to live by the truth saying that there should be no compromise to live the faith—which is a gift of God.

Like the Christ who showed the wounds when his disciples doubted his resurrection from the dead, the Bishop advised the faithful not to be ashamed of the wounds they carry but allow the touch of Christ in their lives to heal the brokenness within.

He further urged the believers to be disciples of Christ.

The three-day triennial convention was hosted by Christ the King Church (CKC), Kohima village.
