Framed poster - Pope Francis in Kenya, Africa
Bring blessings and holiness to your home, office or room with these inspiring poster.
We note here, compared to most other world leaders, the lack of protection in the Popes vehicles! He is right there with the people!
Catholics in Kenya make up roughly 30 percent of the country’s overwhelming Christian majority. 80 percent of Kenyans are Christian, while Muslims constitute 15-20 percent of the country’s religious make up. Other traditional religions, as well as some Hindus and Buddhists, are also present.
Kenya is the first country Pope Francis will visit during his Nov. 25-30 2015 voyage to the African continent before making his way to Uganda and the war-torn Central African Republic. One of the most characteristically “Franciscan” stops the Pope will make after landing in Kenya is to Nairobi’s Kangemi neighborhood – a slum located, like most shanty areas in the city, on the outskirts of town.

Pope Francis is the head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State. Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere.
At his first audience on 16 March 2013, Francis told journalists that he had chosen the name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi, and had done so because he was especially concerned for the well-being of the poor.
Pope Francis said that the most powerful message of Jesus Christ is mercy.
Francis told La Civilta Cattolica that the church does not need to speak constantly of the issues of abortion, artificial contraception, and homosexuality. He thought that other issues, notably the duty to help those who are poor and marginalized, have been neglected. He added that the church had focused in trivial issues, and as such should not be so prone to condemn, and that priests should be more welcoming. He said the confessional should be used to motivate people to better themselves.
While he has said that the greatest poverty is "the lack of Christ," and the "only one real kind of poverty" is "not living as children of God and brothers and sisters in Christ", Francis has also been very outspoken against material poverty.
Pope Francis has courageously confronted many difficult issues in his life, such as the abuses, corruption and disappeared students in Argentina, sexual scandals in the church etc. He also has a great admiration for the family as a manifestation of God in its fullness.
So in summary, Pope Francis has all the hallmarks of a revolutionary, he has seen the light of God!
