Africa Semper Fidelis

Does the future of the Church and of humanity travel by way of African fidelity to the Gospels? It may well be so. Watch and pray.... 

"Today, you are the hope of this two-thousand-year-old Church of ours: being young in faith, you must be like the first Christians and radiate enthusiasm and courage. In a word, you must set yourselves on the path of holiness. Only thus can you be a sign of God in the world and re-live in your own countries the missionary epic of the early Church. You will also be a leaven of missionary spirit for the older Churches"

Ecclesia in Africa, Pope John Paul II
