Faithful mark Easter in Kisii with calls for prayers for the country

A significantly small crowd of Catholic congregants pulled through Kisii town streets as Christendom marked Easter Friday.

A faithful carrying a lighter cross trudged along the dozens of faithful across the County capital streets to signify Jesus’ final path to Gethsemane where Jews crucified him.

Kisii’s St Charles Lwanga Mwembe Parish Priest, Charles Motari led the congregants.

In a short homily, he urged all Christian faithful to pray for the country in the face of the ongoing political divisions.

“We have no bigger role to pray than praying and fasting and lifting up our prayers for our nation,” said Motari.

Prayer, he said remains the best weapon in dealing with the harsh realities life is confronting humanity with.

“Let’s also capitalize on this important holiday to bring others to him that bore the cross and worn the thorns on his head for us,” stated Motari.

The cleric called out on Christians to reach out to less fortunate in society with the heart of compassion and true love.

“Easter gives us break from all that entangles us in our various work places , it is not a time to sit and make merry but to reflect the long journey and painful sacrifices Jesus made for us to achieve the costly gift of Salvation,” he told the Star.
