Catholic Priest & Nigeria Islamic Cleric Embrace To Promote Peace and Love

The Catholic Church is known for working towards world peace and harmonious relationship. This is a good step in the right direction. Read below as shared by Halima:
"The kind of embrace that is much needed especially in these days of insistent hate & dislike. Father O'Connell, a Catholic Priest, in a tearful farewell embrace with Shaykh Ahmad Lemu, an Islamic Cleric, in Minna. 
Father O'Connell has served in a Government Secondary School, Minna as a Principal for 50 years. He turned 80 earlier last week or so. He returns to Ireland on retirement. 
These 2 men have between themselves, educated, positively influenced and molded many Nigerlites, including my father & mother, among other close family & friends.


May our lives be that of service and usefulness to others. Amin."
