Bishops from Sudan and South Sudan invite Pope Francis to visit both countries

2016-01-20

Pope Francis met with bishops from Sudan and South Sudan. The latter is the youngest country in the world, proclaiming its independence in 2011.

One by one, the Pope greeted each bishop. They were accompanied by Cardinal Fernando Filoni, who thanked the Pope during the encounter.

They spoke about a wide variety of topics at the meeting: peace, poverty, and vocations in each country. South Sudan has been in civil war for the last two years, and the violence has created more than a million refugees and internally displaced people.

Afterward, Pope Francis gave them a written message and made sure that all the bishops had it.

"Who will take it to the sick?”

The apostolic nuncios in both countries joined the meeting, which finished with a traditional group photo. The bishops also invited the Pope to visit both countries.
