In a statement posted on his website, CORD leader Raila Odinga reminded the country that the beautification of the Catholic nun, currently going on in Nyeri, is ‘proof that good deeds never run out of fashion or season’.
The beatification of Sister Irene Stefani set for tomorrow is a significant event in the history of our country and particularly that of Christianity and our journey in faith.
The beatification has rallied the nation on the path of the much needed unity, quest for tranquility and peace to our families and the country.Â The event is proof that good deeds never run out of fashion or season. That the human race will always search for and honour those who do good is a critical lesson I hope our country carries from this event.
I congratulate the Catholic Church in Kenya and the entire world for this once in a life time event, which is also a miracle for our nation in several ways.
May God bless those who undertook the research for the Vatican that led to the beatification. I join the rest of the nation in praying that all goes well and that Sister Irene is beatified in a secure atmosphere full of love, peace and dignity and that these ideals live to serve our country and the people for whom Irene gave her own life.
