This year’s Easter Triduum has been marked by seminarians and church members of St Peter’s Regional Seminary in Pedu, Cape Coast. Delivering the homily on Holy Thursday, Rev Fr Emmanuel Abbey-Quaye reminded the faithful that our participation in the Holy Eucharist, just like the Passover of the Israelites, must move us away from the bondage of sin (Egypt) to our promised land of heaven. To him, we cannot partake of the Holy Eucharist and still dwell in the land of sin and slavery. He further urged that our participation in the Eucharist must also make us love and care for one another; to have communion with one another.
In the Homily of Good Friday, Fr John Kennedy reminded the congregation about the love of God which made him send his only begotten Son to die for our salvation. He therefore admonished Christians to be people who carry about the crucified Christ and share him with the people they encounter.
At the Easter Vigil, Rev Fr Peter Abel reminded the faithful about the goodness of God. Indeed, God is Good, and out of his goodness he created the world and all therein hence we must appreciate and care for the world. He reminded the faithful also of the power of God in rescuing the Israelites from Egypt and his constant love for them even when Israel was unfaithful. He urged Christians to accept and embrace the love of God and radiate this same love wherever they go.
To climax the whole celebration on Easter Sunday, Rev Fr Robert Charles Snyper in his homily admonished Christians to reflect more on the practical implications of Easter. In our world where corruption and all sorts of vices are gradually becoming the norm, he charged Christians to rise above such vices and allow the effect of Easter to be seen and felt in the newness of life that they live.
The celebration which was broadcast live on Cafdil Tv, saw in attendance some religious sisters as well as their postulants, and some parishioners who always join the seminary for Holy Mass.
