Vatican prefect salutes religious in Congo

Catholic World News - July 04, 2012

Speaking to a conference of religious in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the prefect of the Congregation for Evangelization paid tribute to the religious men and women who “played a historic role in the evangelization of this country.”

Cardinal Fernando Filoni took note of the large number of religious in the African nation, saying that their presence is “an eloquent sign of the fruitfulness of consecrated religious life.” The cardinal exhorted religious to continue their service to the Church, “to give reasons for hope to the sons and daughters of Congo who are going through painful and dramatic situations, due to successive wars, insecurity and poverty that plague the country.”
