Rumbek, 04 October, 2020 / 10:21 pm (ACI Africa).
The Archbishop of South Sudan’s Juba Archdiocese has, while presiding over the diaconate ordination of two Rumbek Diocese candidates, urged both religious and political leaders in the nine-year-old country to work together for lasting peace through a complete implementation of the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS).
“We must walk together to bring peace; all of us religious leaders and government leaders, if we put our hands together, we will bring a lasting peace in this nation,” Archbishop Stephen Ameyu said during the Thursday, October 1 ordination.
Addressing himself to the hundreds of Catholics at the ceremony at Holy Family Cathedral Parish of South Sudan’s Rumbek Diocese, the South Sudanese Prelate said, “We have to walk with our Priests, our missionaries in order to bring peace to our people and make it a reality.”
“If we feel that we have no borders, no clan, no tribe, no nation, then that is the presence of the Kingdom of God and that is why God told the people upon sending them that the Kingdom of God is at hand,” Archbishop Ameyu said.
