The Chargé d'affaires of the Vatican Nunciature in South Sudan has cautioned Catholic University of South Sudan (CUoSS) students against discouragement, and instead make every effort to focus on their studies with commitment.
In his homily Tuesday, September 19 during the Convocation Mass of CUoSS, Mons. Ionut Paul Strejac urged the students to become aware of their “important role” in the South Sudanese society, identify their respective dreams and aspirations in life, and pursue them.
“Dear students, you have an important role to play; work hard and be committed, and don’t be discouraged,” Mons. Strejac said, and added, “When you find it hard through this academic year, just remember we started with the Mass of the Holy Spirit. He will give us new strength, a new heart, and a new spirit.”
