Kisumu, 21 June, 2022 / 11:01 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Archbishop has called on Kenyans to find a place for the Word of God and the Eucharist in their families if they are to be on the “path of holiness”.
In his message when opening the Archdiocesan phase of the World Meeting of Families Sunday, June 19, Archbishop Maurice Muhatia Makumba called on Priests in his Metropolitan See to dedicate Sunday, June 26 to praying “for the intention of families, and at the end of the Eucharistic celebration, give mandate to families on behalf of the Local Ordinary."
“Towards a path of holiness, families must discover the place of the Word of God and the Eucharist in their daily lives first by reading and meditating on the Word of God for the Word of God remains a lamp to my feet and a light to my path for the families,” the Archbishop of Kenya’s Archdiocese of Kisumu said.
Archbishop Muhatia underscored the link between the Holy Eucharist and love, saying, “The Eucharist remains the Sacrament of love and the Sacrament of charity, a school where love can be learnt and charity practiced and the source of grace that sustains married love.”
“God’s calling to married love is responded to in the Sacrament of Matrimony and continually sustained by God’s grace,” the Kenyan Archbishop said.
