  1. I love the joy & exuberance with which African Christians celebrate the Feasts of the Liturgical year! Thanks for sharing this! We once knew a wonderful & devout Nigerian priest who would come for dinner & bring his drum to play & dance with our children when they were young. They loved it! 🙂

      Reading this makes me smile. What a joy to have known that priest! We met some wonderful sisters from Africa and they blessed my children and then danced and sang with them, it was so beautiful and fun!
