Reflections on Pope in Kangemi
Monday ,October 26th 2015
A month ago I was asked by Sister Mary Killeen (founder of Ruben Centre 1986) to find nine ‘good people who are the heart and soul of the Ruben Centre and invite them to come to Kangemi slum on November 28th to be with the pope there. Who could be welcomed at the table I asked myself and soon I was inviting among others: the head teacher who has given 16 years of service, Leah who has cleaned the toilets for 13 years, Charles a polio victim who voluntarily works tirelessly for disability people, the cheerful guard who welcomes all who seek to enter, Ester the mother of two disabled children now working in our Special Needs Unit. Surely these all had wedding garments for the feast!
