The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Lafia, Nasarawa State, Most Rev. Matthew Audu on Saturday, April 30, 2016, in Masaka, wedded over 109 couples in an history breaking ceremony.

Daily Post reports that Audu, who was on his third pastoral visit to St. Martin`s Catholic Church, Masaka, appealed to relatives of the new couples not to interfere in the marriages.

He said, “As newly wedded couples, you must love each other just as Christ Jesus loved the church and died to set souls free.

“You must respect each other’s feelings; care for each other, share views and reason together in peace and unity.

“You must not allow a third party to come into your matter; always invite God to intervene in your case.

“Ensure that you are coordinated in all your dealings and make the word of God your standard, your pillar, your faith and your hope.

“If you can keep these entire commandments, your marriage will be perfect and other couples will want to copy from you,’’ he said.

The Bishop, who also confirmed 1,390 faithful, blessed 56 Eucharistic ministers and 76 lectors, saying the blessing would strengthen their faith.
