The Pope gave his latest encyclical, Caritas in Veritate to African students who were in Rome.

Before the rosary the teens reflected on reconciliation, justice and peace. Students from five African countries gave their testimonies about their lives as Christians.

One student at Cairo University in Egypt, said he is the only Catholic Christian and has been misunderstood by some of his colleagues because he accepts them all. Another student at the University of Maputo, Mozambique, who has experienced war, said the country will be at peace only when people after people start to focus on what the things they have in common instead of what separates them.
