Stay at Home
Fr. PAT AMOBI CHUKWUMA

Righteousness of God
SAM AWEDA, Lagos, Nigeria
Many of us believe that no one is holy but there is a level of badness, which man must exceed before he is thrown to hell. Many believe God will consider some of our good works and our religious services and save us from Hell. This makes our forefathers to say 'Heaven knows who will be saved'. And they pray that God meets them doing good.
