Scouting is key in building an all-round individual and a better society, the Bishop of Angola’s Cabinda Diocese has said, noting that those in the scouting movement contribute to the building of a strong Christian and social life.
Addressing members of the Angolan National Scouting Movement in his Episccopal See on November 5,Bishop Belmiro Cuica Chissengueti said that anyone who starts off in the scouting movement shows a high sense of commitment in various aspects of their life.
“Scouting is the best youth movement in the world and anyone who begins a life of committed scouting feels the results in every aspect of their life, both organizationally and in terms of faith, sharing, friendship and solidarity,” Bishop Chissengueti said.
He added, “Scouting is one of the most important ways of building a new world. Our founder made this idea very clear, establishing in his principles love of God, love of country and love of neighbor as the foundations for understanding scout life.”
“It is an excellent way of building Christian and social life,” the Angolan member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit under the protection of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (CSSp.), also known as the Spiritans or Holy Ghost Fathers said.
