By KNA | Dec 26th 2013 | 1 min read

NYERI, KENYA: Nyeri Catholic Diocese Archbishop, Peter Kairu has called upon all Christians across the country to pray for peace in our country and in the neighbouring states.

The archbishop stressed for need for special prayers for South Sudan where many innocent people have lost their lives and thousands others are sufferings as a result of the military disturbances being experienced in that country.

Presiding over the Christmas day mass service at Our Lady of Consolata Cathedral in Nyeri town, Bishop Kairu said the role of maintaining peace in the society should not be left to the government alone but noted that every individual has a responsibility of creating and maintaining peace wherever they were and with the people they lived with.

He asked Christians to shun greed and selfishness saying such habits were the main causes for conflict and war in the society. He said the Christmas period is a time for Christians to pray and extend love and good cheer to those who were suffering amongst them and the less fortunate members of the society.

The archbishop further expressed concern over the numerous road accidents that have been witnessed in our roads in the recent past. He said drivers have the key responsibility of ensuring that passengers arrive safely at their destination.

Bishop Kairu also appealed to Christians to extend their generosity by sharing the little they had with the poor, the sick and the inmates during the Christmas season.
