2016-04-19


The Pope's visit to Central African Republic was a monumental moment for the country. Pope Francis had been adamant about his decision to visit, despite the risk of attacks.

It is no coincidence, therefore, that the first international trip of the new president was to the Vatican.

"The Pope showed great courage by accepting the trip to Central African Republic, amidst these difficult conditions. His visit affected the people and we have just come to thank him."

In the Hall of Peace of the Community of Sant'Egidio, Faustin-Archange Touadéra stressed that the visit allowed Francis to make important steps towards reconciliation.

"His message of peace and reconciliation has touched all my Muslim colleagues. His visit to the mosque also touched the entire Muslim community."

For years, the community has been facing Christians in a ruthless civil war that seems to be slowly coming to an end. However, there are still many wounds to heal.

In fact, the Pope and the Central African president talked about how to continue consolidating the country's institutions with the support of an increasingly united people and international community.

"Pray for me."
