Dear Father Pius,
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Resurrection and the Life!
On behalf of the Church of Uganda, please accept our sincerest condolences to you and all Ugandan Roman Catholics who are grieving the sudden death of Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.
Yet, we know that he has moved into the nearer presence of our Lord and is advancing from glory to glory. He fought the good fight; he finished the race; he kept the faith. Now he, who longed for our Lord’s appearing, receives the crown of righteousness.
We are praying for you, your people, and all Ugandans that we will know the comfort of the Holy Spirit at this time of great loss, and at the same time rejoice that Archbishop Cyprian’s name was written in the Book of Life.
Yours, in Christ,
The Most. Rev. Dr. Stephen Samuel Kaziimba
ARCHBISHOP CHURCH OF UGANDA
