Pope Francis receives Bishops from Kenya – OSS_ROM

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Thursday morning met with the Bishops from Kenya who are in Rome on their ad Limina visit. In his prepared remarks the Holy Father said “the Church in Kenya must always be true to her mission as an instrument of reconciliation, justice and peace.”

Below find the Pope’s address to the Kenyan Bishops.

Dear Brother Bishops,

I offer you my fraternal welcome on the occasion of your visit ad Limina Apostolorum as you make your pilgrimage to the tombs of Blessed Peter and Paul.  Your time in the Eternal City and your visits to the offices of the Roman Curia provide numerous opportunities to deepen communion between the Church in Kenya and the See of Peter.  I thank Cardinal Njue for his warm words on your behalf and in the name of the priests, men and women religious, and all the lay faithful of Kenya.  I ask you kindly to assure them of my prayers and spiritual closeness.
