.- The Catholic weekly La Guida in the Italian town of Cuneo announced that the intention for the traditional “Prayer March” that will take place on Sunday, February 8, will be to pray for the nuns kidnapped three months ago in Kenya: Sister Caterina Giraudo and Sister Maria Teresa Olivero.

According to the Italian news agency SIR, La Guida reports that the liberation of the nuns is “increasingly more complicated.  Three months after the kidnapping, the apprehension is more and more intense, as is the prayer and hope for their release.”

The March will conclude with the recitation of the Rosary and a Mass.

The website of the sisters’ religious community, www.centromisionario.org, published a statement denying reports that there had been telephone contact with the two nuns.  “Up to now there have been no calls made by the sisters to their families or to the religious communities.”
