“They encouraged the Christians to grow in knowledge and love of the Scriptures and of Jesus, who continues to speak his word and to break bread in the community of believers,” the member of FSP adds in reference to the Priests who presided over Eucharistic celebration in the three Parishes of Nairobi Archdiocese.

Fredrick Ndirang’u, Sr. Massango says that the Consolata Missionary Cleric “found a way to involve the children in the Eucharistic Celebration by providing some Bibles and New Testaments as a way to underline how it is important to put the Word of God in the hands of young children.”

“Let us not simply place the Word of God on a bookshelf, as if it were just any other book. Let us give it the place of honor in our house, alongside the crucifix, where everyone can see it, read it and kiss it,” Sr. Massango further says making reference to Blessed James Alberione.
She continues, “How wonderful it is to see the Book of the Gospel on the altar.”
