Kenya - Anti-Christian attacks: Christian leaders urge the faithful to forgivenessNairobi (Agenzia Fides) - "What would Christ have said if there were terror attacks during his time?" ask Christian leaders of Kenya in a joint message on the occasion of Christmas to the faithful still shaken by the attacks that have targeted faithful other than Muslim in northern Kenya (see Fides 24/11/2014 and 02/12/2014).
"He would have said: do not revenge…vengeance does not belong to you. This is our Christmas message to you", the message continues. "Whenever you face violence, counter it with peace, whenever you face hatred, counter it with love, be your brothers’ and sisters’ keepers – no matter what faith they profess".
"May God’s love touch our hearts this Christmas season. May it help us to appreciate the value of every human person, irrespective of their religion, age, race or tribe", the message concludes. (Agenzia Fides 03/01/2015)
