Bishops for Gweru and Mutare Dioceses on Saturday the 16th of January opened the Doors of Mercy at St Theresa Cathedral in Gweru and at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Mutare respectively following the inauguration of Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy by Pope Francs on the 8th of December 2015.
Gweru Diocese rolled down the Year of Consecrated life banner and Bishop Xavier Munyongani opened the Door of Mercy in the presence of retired bishop, Martin Munyanyi.
In his remarks, bishop Munyongani said “To enter the door of mercy means discovering the depth of our father’s mercy that is so welcoming so as Christians let’s live a life which is simple that the Good Lord will have mercy on us.”
In Mutare, Rt Rev Bishop Alexio Muchabaiwa emphasised that, “for peace to prevail in the family, community and the world, mercy has to be everyone’s daily bread because mercy is the driver of all that is good, and that those who are not merciful do not forgive.”
“Those who do not forgive always have an intrapersonal fight and have no peace,” bishop Muchabaiwa added.
