Africa Day

May 25 is Africa Day, commemorating the establishment of the Organization for African Unity. One of the General Councilors who was with us this week spent over 20 years in East Africa (mostly Kenya, but also some time in Uganda and Nigeria), and she was updating us on this travailed "Continent of Hope" (as Pope John Paul called it). Evidently, things are still quite unsettled in Kenya, not so much in Nairobi as in the villages.
All in all, a good day to pray for the people of Africa and for all those who work for them and with them.
