The Retired Rev. Humphrey Olumakaiye and Diocese Bishop of Lagos Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) says no Worshipper can contract Coronavirus.
The Anglican Bishop Maintained that no one can contract the Virus even when everyone partakes in the holy Communion from one cup.
In a detailed statement released on Wednesday, the Clerk said this principle (Communion) isn’t a tradition but divinely approved and should not be a source of disease but healing.
In his words he said “,However in obedience to all laid down protocols of wearing nose masks, regular washing of hands, physical distancing and so on, our churches have made adequate preparations. In all of these, let the joy of the Lord be our strength, because that is what we will be spreading and not any virus,” .
The Anglican Bishop sir Olumakaiye commended the efforts of the Lagos State government in curbing the spread of the Covid-19 virus and thanked health workers for their sacrifice in various isolation centers where victims were being treated.
He said the church was the hope of the common man, because “when every other thing or method fails, the church of God, where God’s holy altar is, cannot fail.”
According to him, it is high time the world came together in fervent prayers to God for intervention.
he said “As we congregate in our churches, let us humble ourselves with the assurances that it is only God that can help us. Pray, seek God’s face and turn from our wicked ways so that the Lord will heal our land of this pandemic and liberate our land.”
