Be the shepherd of the flock of God that is entrusted to you; watch over it, not as a duty but gladly, because God wants it, not for sordid money, but because you are eager to do it. Never be a dictator over any group that is put in your charge, but be an example that the whole flock can follow. When the Chief shepherd appears, you will be given the crown of unfaiding glory." (1 Pet. 5: 1 - 11).

"In order to fulfill his office diligently, the Pastor should strive to come to know the faithful who have been entrusted to his care; therefore, he is to visit families, sharing the cares, worries, and especially the griefs of the faithful, strengthening them in the Lord, and correcting them prudently if they are wanting in certain arears; with a generous love he is to help the sick particularly those close to death, refreshing them solicitously with the sacraments and commending their souls to God; he is to make a special effort to seek out the poor, the afflicted, the lonely, those exiled from their own land, and similarly those weighed down with special difficulties; he is also to labour diligently so that spouses and parents are supported in fulfilling their proper duties, and he is to foster growth in the Christian life within the family. " Canon 529, #1.

Most Rev. Dr. Augustine Ukwuoma

Bishop of Orlu.
