Nairobi, 18 January, 2022 / 8:32 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Priest at the helm of the International Ecumenical Movement-Kenya Chapter (IEM-K) has, in his message for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU), called on all followers of Christ to unite in the defense of human dignity and the freedom of worship.
Fr. Innocent Maganya who was reflecting on the theme of this year’s celebration, “We saw the star in the East, and we came to worship Him”, calls on Christians to be in communion with believers in the Eastern part of the world who face persecution.
“The meditation for this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity invites all of us, in unison, to rise up and stand for the dignity of each and every person and respect for human rights and freedom of worship all over the world,” says IEM-K Chairman in a statement obtained by ACI Africa Tuesday, January 18.
The member of the Society of Missionaries of Africa (MAfr.) says there have been many instances where people lack solidarity in addressing pertinent issues that promote human dignity.
"There is a lack of solidarity in effectively addressing some of the critical issues that are affecting our world today, in particular the issue of peace in the Middle East," says Fr. Maganya.
