Nairobi, 25 September, 2023 / 3:13 pm (ACI Africa).
The newly professed members of the Missionary Sisters of Evangelization (MSE) in Kenya have been cautioned against lamenting about the lack of love in Religious communities, and instead challenged to “pump that love” into their respective communities.
In his September 22 homily during the Temporary and Perpetual Profession of 10 MSE members at the Apostles of Jesus Sacred Heart Shrine, Karen, in the Archdiocese of Nairobi, Bishop John Oballa Owaa also cautioned the women Religious against worldly pleasures.
“My dear daughters, be a community builder; be the one to make it more of a family. It is very easy to complain that this community does not have enough love; pump that love into it,” Bishop Oballa said.
The Local Ordinary of Kenya’s Catholic Diocese of Ngong added, “Give that genuine love that will build your Religious community. Make the community holier, more generous; make it more hospitable, more kind to the needy by your presence by putting your heart, mind, and body into whatever you do.”
He went on to thank the 10 MSE members, who included seven for the first vows and three for the final vows, for taking time to measure and balance themselves in order to confirm God’s call and fully dedicate themselves to Him.
