As the preparation for the celebration of Episcopal Golden Jubilee of His Eminence France Cardinal Arinze billed to hold on Saturday, November 28, 2015 is in top gear, the Archbishop of Onitsha and Metropolitan of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Province His Grace Most Rev. Valerian M. Okeke recently heaped praise on the jubilarian describing him as a precious gift to humanity.

            Archbishop Val made the description while fielding questions from the press during his pastoral visit to St. Augustine of Hippo Parish Nkpor last Sunday.

            According to him, Cardinal Arinze’s Episcopal Golden jubilee is a thing of joy, disclosing that Cardinal is the first person to celebrate his Episcopal Golden Jubilee in Nigeria.

            His words: “At the age of 32 Cardinal Arinze has been given a mantle of leadership (consecrated a bishop) in Church which he did not abuse. He carried the responsibility vested on him with dedication, commitment, diligence, living out a legacy to be celebrated. At the time he was consecrated a Bishop in August 29, 1965 he was the youngest bishop  in the World and also the time he was created Cardinal of the Holy Roman Catholic Church precisely in May 1985, he was the youngest Cardinal in the whole World.

            God has blessed His people through Cardinal Arinze. He is a genius, principled. He is a good preacher who would first do what he would preach you to do. He is a prolific writer and a veracious reader. At his 80s he still authors book. He is a motivator who has an all round gift to be celebrated.
