The Auxiliary Bishop of South Sudan’s Juba Archdiocese has challenged the people of God in the East-Central African nation to work toward ending suffering in the lives of “others” in the country.
In his Sunday, September 18 homily at St. Theresa’s Cathedral of Juba Archdiocese, Bishop Santo Loku Pio Doggale said, “As we pray today, let’s work on actions that free others from suffering because it’s our actions that make others suffer in this country.”
“Someone should feel that someone is suffering because of his or her action. In this case we will be able to feel what others are going through,” Bishop Loku further said, adding that people experience suffering “because of someone’s actions or someone else who doesn’t care about someone having food on the table or house.”
“Some people should ask themselves why this is happening across the country,” the 52-year-old the Auxiliary Bishop of Juba Archdiocese said in reference to the challenges the citizens of South Sudan have been exposed to even after they gained independence from Sudan in July 2011.
He went on to pose, “As a Christian how do you feel? Can you come back to yourself and say I am not supposed to do this to my fellow country men and women who are the sons and daughters of God?”
