Tombura-Yambio, 23 May, 2022 / 9:46 pm (ACI Africa).
The Catholic Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio (CDTY) in South Sudan has said that the planned ecumenical trip, which Pope Francis is expected to undertake alongside the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Jim Wallace will help the people of God in the East-African nation to live their “faith with conviction”.
The Holy Father is scheduled to visit South Sudan in his two-African-nation pastoral trip that is to begin in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on July 2.
In a May 20 report by Ruru Gene newsletter of CDTY, Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala calls on the people of God in South Sudan to pray for the success of the ecumenical visit.
“Let us pray to the Holy Spirit that this visit will help us to live our faith with conviction and to be authentic witnesses by leading a life of integrity, honesty, truth, justice, peace, and social commitment, while passing on our faith to peaceful future generations” Bishop Hiiboro has been quoted as saying.
The South Sudanese Catholic Bishop adds, “The visit of Pope Francis is a great blessing and a pilgrimage of peace.”
