The Chief Shepherd of Onitsha Archdiocese, His Grace Most Rev Valerian M. Okeke recently called on people of God to avoid capital sins in order to climb mountain of glory.
The prelate gave the advise while preaching a Homily entitled climbing the mountain of glory during his pastoral visit to St Kizito Secondary, Umudioka.
According to him, in order to enter, you must leave a position so as to be able to climb the mountain of glory. The prelate outlined the seven capital sins which includes : pride, greed, lust, anger, glutton, envy and laziness noting that those are obstacles that can prevent one from achieving excellence in life and thus finding it difficult climbing the mountain of glory.
He further made it clear that committing of sins constitute serious barrier and impediments to progress, adding that those who want to be successful in life must strive to leave above sins.
“It pays to live a life free of sins since you will continue to enjoy God’s unmerited favours, protection, blessings while on earth and no temptation can swallow you because God will always be with you to assist you all the time”, the prelate added.
