UNC Calls On Nation To Be Used As Instrusments Of Peace In Corpus Christi Message

Corpus Christi reinforces our embrace of God enables Him to use us as His instruments of peace, compassion, love, wisdom, justice, and mercy, thereby changing the world for the better, this is one of the sentiments of Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar in her reflections of the 240th anniversary of commemorating the Feast of Corpus Christi marked by the Roman Catholic Community of Trinidad and Tobago.

The Opposition Leader expressed best wishes for successful, safe celebrations at the various parishes and other venues across the country.

She said Corpus Christi serves as a timely reminder the faith-based values that we have long held dear must be passed on to our younger generations.

Notably, over the years, the tradition of planting crops on Corpus Christi has been embraced by all citizens, and the ritual of the blessing of seeds has national involvement.

It also underscores our unique embrace of diversity and unity, and our inspiring commitment as a people to our National Anthem’s decree that “every creed and race find an equal place”.

May the spiritual seeds we sow today bear abundant and lasting fruits of progress, peace, harmony, and prosperity for ourselves and our beloved Trinidad and Tobago.
