He said visiting the CAR was the most important because their people are suffering from war. The Pope explained that he wanted to show his support by opening the Holy Door in that country.

Reflecting especially on the role of missionaries and their examples, he recommended that all young people must ask what they want to do with their lives. 

SUMMARY OF THE POPE'S CATECHISM IN ENGLISH: 

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

My recent Apostolic Journey to Africa brought me to Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic with a message of hope in the Risen Jesus.

In Kenya, a country blessed with great human and natural resources, I spoke of the worldwide challenge of protecting the environment and creating equitable, inclusive and sustainable models of development, and the need to form our young in the ways of peace and fraternity. 

In Uganda, the land of the Martyrs, I encouraged the Christian community to persevere in its witness of faith and charity, and thus to be a leaven of hope for society as a whole.

In the Central African Republic, a country experiencing internal conflicts and great suffering, I opened the first Holy Door of the Jubilee of Mercy as a sign of hope and strength for its people and for all our brothers and sisters in Africa.

I ask you to join me in commending them and all their aspirations to Jesus, our peace, who is himself the door which opens wide to the merciful love of our heavenly Father.
