For the first time, we met Lilian, 39-years-old banker from Nairobi, about half an hour before her baptism. She could refuse and send us away while she was preparing herself for such an important event of her life. But instead she was very calm, open and confidently answered all our inquisitive questions.
"Right now, I am blooming and I am happy about it."
– Lily, 19th April 2014 immediately after the Easter Vigil at Buru Buru, Kenya.
We went to Kenya during the Holy Week in 2014 to capture a number of development projects run by the Pontifical Mission Societies (for more information visit missio.cz). We also planned to stay for the most important Christian celebration somewhere out of the urban area. Our wish was to document the baptisms of several catechumens. But due to an accident of our local companion, Father Celestino, we had to change our plans and target destinations. When we arrived in Buru Buru, a large Catholic parish in Nairobi district, we were very surprised. The big multifunctional hall used as nursery classes during the week wasn't in our imagination of a common African church. Now we know that God himself brought us here. Father Moses Kago the parish priest warmly welcomed us and took care of us graciously.
"This year we have 16 catechumens, but only one of them is adult," explained Father Moses, the leader of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Institutions. – "OK, then we have no dilemma to choose one of them," we accepted the bare reality.
This is a testimony of a living faith and joy of the community, in a country where it is not so obvious that you return back from the church alive.
