Meanwhile, the "relics" keep 0n harboring the poor and reconciling enemies in places like Kenya.
From the National Catholic Register:
The post-election, intertribal turmoil in Kenya had not reached the Dominican compound, set on a hillside near Kisumu, when a man approached in early January posing an ominous question.
What tribes did the people inside belong to, he wanted to know?
The man left before police arrived, and without learning that the priests were harboring about 30 refugees from three tribes -- Meru, Luo and Kikuyu. Dominican Fr. Martin Martiny, head of the compound, instructed guards on how to respond if the question came again. Tell anyone who asks that “we are all sons of St. Dominic,” he said.
Read the whole piece and pray for the religious and other peace-makers of Kenya.
