Man Jose Kayima

The Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese Paul Ssemogerere has revealed that for one to go to heaven he or she must work hard and overcome poverty.

Ssemogerere, was addressing mass at the priestly golden jubilee and episcopal silver jubilee celebrations for the retired ambassador of Vatican (Apostolic Nuncio) Archbishop Augustine Kasujja.

The celebrations which attracted thousands of faithful were held on Sunday in Mitala Maria, Mpigi district.

“God will not entertain the poor in heaven. You will not go there. I will also stand at the entrance to stop you from going there. We have misunderstood the gospel. Being poor should not be misinterpreted to be without money,”

Ssemogerere said before adding,

“God will say I created you with eyes, the brain, and gave you life, and you die poor?!. You will perish in hell. We should work hard. Let’s not sleep and be idle.”
