- Archbishop Makarios of Nairobi."...God is inviting us and is telling us, “Here I am, I’m coming, very soon.”

"...God is inviting us and is telling us, “Here I am, I’m coming, very soon.” The Kingdom of God is upon us. Be ready. Are we ready? Are we ready to forgive one another? Are we ready to love one another? Are we ready to embrace one another?

We were created according to the image and likeness of God, which means that we can really become like God. We are here to sanctify ourselves. That is why we are here on earth—not to wait until after our departure.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us not joke with our lives and let us not think that our lives are as simple as we think, because we have money, because we are educated, because we have different kinds of positions: I am the archbishop, I am the bishop, I am the governor, I am the president. I must tell you, in the eyes of God, we are all the same, and we will be judged in the same way...He is telling us not to postpone our preparation, but to do it now....

That is why I insist: Prepare yourselves. Be ready for this unknown journey. Whether we like it or not, it will come—today or tomorrow or the next day. Today, I am standing here in front of you. Believe it or not, tomorrow you will not see me again. That is how it is.

- Archbishop Makarios of Nairobi
