AFRICA: Congolese Bishops Speak with One Voice

There have been internal controversies among African Bishops regarding political crises: it happened in the Ivory Coast in 2010 and in Cameroon in October 2018, after the result of the presidential elections.

There is a virtuous example, according to Fr. Zagore of the Society for African Missions (SMA): “The Episcopal Conference of the Democratic Republic of Congo speaks with one voice. What testimony, in fact, does a divided Church offer a continent constantly subjected to violence and division? It is necessary that the Episcopal Conferences speak with one voice, otherwise the political crises in Africa will destroy not only the civil communities, but also the religious ones”.
