NAIROBI NOVEMBER 13, 2015 (CISA) – The Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB) has released a prayer to be recited by all Catholic faithful ahead of Pope Francis’ visit to Kenya.
Almighty and ever living father, you chose your servant Pope Francis as the successor of Apostle Peter and Shepherd of your flock. Look favourably, we pray, on his pastoral visit to our nation Kenya.
Inspire us to receive him well. May your Holy Spirit enlighten our minds and hearts to be generous and receptive to his message and encouragement.
Grant that he may be for us, your people, a visible bond of unity which brings healing and reconciliation, love and peace; So that in you, the Shepherd of Souls, all may know the truth and attain eternal life.
