Catholic Bishops in Chad are cautioning young people in the North-Central African nation against violence, urging them to “never use violence to solve problems”.
In their Christmas 2022 Message shared with ACI Africa Monday, December 12, members of the Episcopal Conference of Chad (CET) highlight the challenges the youth in the country face, and urge them to keep their hope alive.
“Dear youth, we know that you desire a just, united, and prosperous Chad. But your legitimate aspirations are continually repressed and stifled,” CET members say in their collective message dated December 9.
They further tell the you in Chad, “Do not be discouraged. Trust in God who does not disappoint and trust in yourselves.”
“Never use violence to solve your problems. Seek the path of non-violence. Cultivate the values of brotherhood, unity, truth, courage, hard work, and progress,” the Catholic Bishops say, and add, “As the Word of God teaches us, do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
