Kenyans have been urged to love one another, as Christians worldwide observed Palm Sunday, a moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter.
In Kenya, worshipers held the traditional procession carrying twigs to symbolize the historic triumphant entry into Jerusalem of Jesus Christ.
The clergy used the day to preach the gospel of love for one another as the basis for sustainable peace and tolerance.
At the Holy Family Basilica in Nairobi, worshipers held the traditional procession carrying twigs and culminating in mass to symbolize the historic triumphant entry into Jerusalem of Jesus Christ.
And here Christians were urged to dedicate their needs to God in prayer and exercise love for one another which is the genesis for a just and prosperous society.
The gospel was the same at the St Mark catholic church in Kiambu County as well as in Samburu, where Bishop Virgilio Pante of Maralal Diocese called on residents to abandon their perennial animosity and embrace peace and tolerance.
And from the Roman Catholic Church headquarters – the Vatican, Pope Francis delivered a message specifically for the young urging them to speak out on the issues affecting modern society without fear of intimidation.
Palm Sunday initiates Holy Week, the last week of Lent.
