“God has a special place for the souls of the righteous, even though departed, whether young or still needed. He tells us not to mourn like people with no hope but to mourn like people with the hope that if Christ died and resurrected, then we that trust in Christ, will be with him in the end,” said Archbishop Kivuva of the Archdiocese of Mombasa in his homily.

Archbishop Njenga died on Sunday, November 4.
