Death of Bishop Cesare Mazzolari shocks South Sudan

Msgr. Cesare MazzolariArchbishop Rumbek (South Sudan)“Reconciliation and forgiveness should play a major role in the country?s future. This must contribute both to the Church and the State which must be more transparent and abandon the exclusivity in representing only one or two tribes.”Mazzolari first arrived in Sudan in 1981. He helped to release 150 child soldiers and reopened several missions. He was also kidnapped for 24 hours by the Sudan People?s Liberation Army. On July 9 he took part in the ceremony declaring the independence of South Sudan. CBFFJM-BN
