Most Reverend Charles Palmer-Buckle, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra, has called on all eligible voters to register enthusiastically in the ongoing biometric registration exercise and ensure that peace continues to prevail in the society.
He said we should all sacrifice some time to ensure that our names are on the electoral roll and thereby fulfill our civic responsibilities, adding that Christians should see themselves as the salt, light and yeast of the world and ensure that they help bring peace to our environment and country for true development to take place.
Archbishop Palmer-Buckle said this on Wednesday during the Mass of Chrism where oils are blessed prior to the Easter celebration and are used in the administration of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Orders and in the consecration of churches amongst others.
He said as the salt, light and yeast of the world, Christians ought to ensure that they participate regularly in the activities of the church and see their oneness with the body of Christ, adding “we have been baptized to sing the praise of God our Father and spread his message to the whole world; we are priests on to the world”.
Archbishop Palmer-Buckle said, “We are expected to show care and solidarity to our neighbours; we should show trust and warmth in human relations and more importantly work diligently in all our endeavors”.
He said as the chosen people we are the sign and instrument or the sacrament of Christ in the world and that our responsibility is to ensure reconciliation, justice and help bring humanity closer to God and also ensure the success of the registration process in our current political dispensation.
