Speaking during the Ask the Archbishop live streamed on Facebook November 15, he said he has advised young priests to have a hobby so when they retire there is something they enjoy doing. He said as someone joining the ranks of retirees, or as some persons described them, “responsible people”, they are waiting for the Lord to call them. “Therefore the creative waiting is important,” he said.

Reiterating the significance of the feasts of All Saints’ and All Souls’, Archbishop Harris said the observances “are not meant to be Carnivals”. “They are meant to be moments when we recognise and meditate a little bit on what we call in Church, the Communion of Saints, that we recognise those who have gone before us, are still alive in another world, another dimension”, he said.
