CWN Editor's Note: Formerly known as Swaziland, the Southern African nation of 1.1 million (map) is 90% Christian (84% Protestant), with 8% adhering to ethnic religions.

“News is arriving from the dear nation of Eswatini, in southern Africa, news of tension and violence,” Pope Francis said at the conclusion of his July 4 Angelus address. “I invite those who hold responsibility, and those who are manifesting their aspirations for the future of the country, to a common effort toward dialogue, reconciliation and the peaceful settlement of different positions.”
