His eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan, Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, has advised Christians to see the birth of Jesus Christ as a source of hope.
The advice is contained in a statement by Rev. Father Mike Umoh, the National Director of Social Communications, Catholic Church, in Abuja on Saturday.
Onaiyekan said that Jesus Christ was the source of hope that the Almighty God would never abandon his creation, whose apex was humanity.
“The Christmas season has come around again with the annual message of hope, joy and peace for the Almighty God to all men and women of goodwill.
“Through his birth as the son of man and saviour of the world, the Word was made flesh, God became man and dwelt among us,” he said.
He appealed to Christians and all Nigerians to use the period for fervent prayers for a turnaround in all challenges which the nation was facing.
