CWN Editor's Note: The bishops of Africa pledged first to “invest more deeply in the biblical, theological, moral and spiritual formation of all the baptized; to nourish them with the word of God and the sacraments, so that they may make the Gospel penetrate all aspects of life. Encouraged by the example of the African saints, may they resist the diverse attractions of the new religious movements and ideologies that are contrary to the Catholic faith.” The bishops also elected Cardinal Philippe Ou├ędraogo of Burkina Faso as the new president of SECAM, the continental symposium of bishops’ conferences.
