2013 Easter Message by Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP

31 March 2013    


On behalf of the Inkatha Freedom Party, and my own family, I wish everyone who celebrates Easter a time of joyful celebration. For Christ is risen indeed.


May we take this time to remember the sacrifice of our Lord for our salvation, and renew our own perspective based on that glorious knowledge. This is the time to reconsider our heart attitude, and our relationships with our fellow man. This is the time to ponder our character and question whether our lives reveal the patience, kindness, gentleness and goodness of Christ.


It is also the time to consider those who are without hope, and without a foundation on which to stand, as they face the most difficult of circumstances. The widespread poverty, unemployment, crime, disease and hardship in our country become unbearable under the weight of despair. Let us, who know hope, extend a hand to those who are suffering and share the gift we have within us.


May our lives make a difference to the glory of our Lord.
