Kamiti Prison Eucharistic Retreat: Day 3

Final Benediction before the closing Mass.
 The Eucharistic retreat ended on an extremely positive note. It was evident that there had been a significant breakthrough for many of the men attending. Talks on the last day touched on the Blessed Virgin Mary as our Mother and Advocate, as well as the "weapons" we need to persevere in the "spiritual combat" of our Christian lives.

Fr. Ray and I with the leaders of the Catholic community in maximum security.
 Fr. Ray celebrated and preached the final Mass in Kiswahili, which was followed by a time of testimonies, thanks and - of course - photo ops.
