- Fr Peter Githinji said faithfulness in marriages will see the world become free from HIV/Aids in a few years to come.
The purple colour is also used to seek repentance and hope from God.
According to the Roman Catholic, all condoms are fake since they have been scientifically proven that they have micro-pores.
The Catholic Church vowed to start a purple colour revolution Wednesday to counter the red that is normally associated with Valentine’s Day.
The Church said Tuesday it would also oppose efforts to celebrate World Condoms Day, saying condoms are not a real and moral solution.
The Church said it will continue to campaign against use of condoms, and asked faithful who are not married to abstain from sex as one solution to stop the spread of HIV/Aids.
It also asked married couples to stick to one partner.
Fr Peter Githinji, the head of Health Nyeri Archdiocese, said faithfulness in marriages will see the world become free from HIV/Aids in a few years to come.
“Today, many couples and lovers will paint their towns red to mark and celebrate Valentine’s Day but for us as Catholic faithful, we will colour our towns and villages with purple,” said Fr Githinji.
“This will symbolise two things, one, the start of Lent season — a 40-day period of fasting and penitence observed by many Christians in preparation for Easter,” added Fr Githinji.
