A Kenyan Catholic journalist who, earlier this week, was officially notified about his appointment as member of the Vatican’s Communication Commission of the Synod of Bishops has said he is “honored and privileged” to serve the Universal Church.
In an interview with ACI Africa Wednesday, April 27, George Sunguh who officially received his appointment letter Tuesday, April 26 said he does not “take for granted” the opportunity to in a Vatican Commission.
“I feel extremely honored and privileged to be appointed to serve the Mother Church at the Universal level,” Mr. Sunguh said, and added, “It's indeed a humbling experience. I feel literally tossed into the deep end.”
“I will be brushing shoulders with top Clergy, theologians, spiritualists, scholars and communication experts as we help the Holy Father shape the destiny of the Church in the new journey of faith, through the Synod on Synodality,” he said.
The immediate former President of the Union of the African Catholic Press (UCAP) further said his appointment is something “I will never take for granted and I ask the Holy Spirit to guide my steps on this journey.”
