I am coming as a minister of the Gospel to proclaim the love of Jesus Christ and his message of reconciliation, forgiveness and peace.
My visit is meant to confirm the Catholic community in its worship of God and its witness to the gospel which teaches the dignity of every man and woman and commands to open our hearts to poor and those in need.

Pope Francis will be in Africa, visiting Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic. This will be the first time Pope Francis has ever been to the continent, and it may well be a game-changer – not for Africa, but for him.

His Holiness would do well to listen and learn from the African Church, whose religious experience is arguably more authentic than that of the West.

The altar to be used for the open air Papal mass next Thursday, November 26 has been moved to Nairobi from the Central Kenyan town of Nyeri, where it was having been used during the beatification of Blessed Irene Stefani. The hand-crated altar, which dates back to almost one hundred years, was chosen by Church leaders in Kenya for its rich history and for its religious symbolism.
