May 2019. The Pope Video: The Church in Africa

“Let us pray this month that the Church in Africa, through the commitment of its members, may be the seed of unity among her peoples and a sign of hope for this continent.” 
– Pope Francis

The Pope Video, May 2019, is for the Church in Africa.

Pope Francis says:

“Africa is full of contrasts that are an essential part of its identity. On the rich African continent, the Church strives to work for unity in diversity, respecting ethnic and linguistic divisions.

“The ethnic, linguistic, and tribal divisions in Africa can be overcome promoting unity in diversity.”

Pope Francis thanks “the religious sisters, priests, laity, and missionaries for their work to create dialogue and reconciliation among the various sectors of African society.”

He concludes his message with the following prayer:

“Let us pray this month that the Church in Africa, through the commitment of its members, may be the seed of unity among her peoples and a sign of hope for this continent.”
