The Bishop of Zambia’s Solwezi Diocese has emphasized the need for the implementation of programs that contribute to the realization of “integral human development” in his Episcopal See.
Bishop Charles Kasonde who was speaking during the Caritas Solwezi Annual General Meeting (AGM) organized under the theme, “Attaining Integral Human Development” emphasized the need “to listen to God” and to foster fraternal relationships devoid of discrimination.
"The theme that guides us, Attaining Integral Human Development through quality service delivery, is a desired goal that we would want to realize," Bishop Kasonde has been quoted as saying in a report that the Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) published Friday, October 14.
In the report, the Zambian Bishop says that attaining integral human development "is very important in the sense that it is centred on a human person."
Service should be given to all people equally regardless of their background or affiliations, Bishop Kasonde has been quoted as saying, adding, "Our agenda is to listen to God, what God is telling us. From there it is interacting with our brothers and sisters no matter who they are but made in the image and likeness of God."
