Help build lasting peace, Pope asks Sudanese bishops

Catholic World News - March 15, 2010

Meeting on March 13 with the Catholic bishops of Sudan, who were making their ad limina visit, Pope Benedict XVI emphasized the need for reconciliation in the war-torn African land.

"I know how much you and the faithful of your country long for peace, and how patiently you are working for its restoration," the Pope said. He applauded the bishops for their firm stand against any return to civil war, and encouraged them to continue working for justice through the elimination of "corruption, ethnic tensions, indifference, and selfishness."
