The Bishop of Abuja Catholic Diocese, Ignatius Kaigama has said that the novel coronavirus, ravaging the world, has shown that technology cannot do much.
According to the cleric, the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced all nations, big or small to same level, shown that God remained on the throne and that all must return to Him.
He stated this on Sunday, after he marked Palm Sunday Mass in an empty Church due government ban on public gatherings.
He said, “The disease has reduced us to one level. The mighty and small nations have all been reduced to the same level with all feeling the hit and unable to do much about it.
“The pandemic has taught us that we must come together to conquer the ills of the society.
“All nations, big or small, developed and undeveloped, poor and rich, have seen that technology cannot do much. Everyone is running from pillar to post in search of safety.
“Clearly, it is a new beginning for humanity. It means we must return to the golden rule of love and respect for one another. Above all, it has shown that God is on the throne and all must return to Him.
“It should never be about what we can gain from the situation. It should be about what we can contribute to the system.”
