Bishop urges prayer for Sudan

Catholic World News - January 26, 2011

Amid unofficial reports that 99% of the residents of southen Sudan voted for independence, Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of Tombura-Yambio is urging prayers for a peaceful transition.

“As so many of you know, this is a historical time for us with noble and delicate decisions before us,” he told Aid to the Church in Need. “I want to ask your prayers for permanent peace in the Sudan.”

Prayers and external pressure “have made a real impact on the government and made it clear to the authorities that war is not an option,” he added. “Nobody wants to be accused of starting a war.”
