Bishop pleads for peace in Algeria

Catholic World News - March 21, 2014

A French-born bishop who ministers in Algeria, a nation that is 99% Muslim, has written a letter to the residents of the historic M’zab Valley pleading for an end to strife between Arabs and Berbers.

“We, the small Christian community of M’zab, suffer with all of you,” said Bishop Claude Rault of Laghouat. “We are there … to be artisans of peace and of reconciliation.”

“Peace is a gift from God,” he added. “With all our heart, every day we pray to the Only and Merciful God, that he sow peace in hearts and in communities.”
