CWN Editor's Note: In 2021, prior to his episcopal ordination, Bishop-elect Christian Carlassare of Rumbek, South Sudan, was shot in both legs.

“Though sad for what has happened and the resulting suffering, we pray that truth may bring conversion and healing,” Bishop Carlassare said following the verdict. “As a Church, we look forward with hope during this Easter time and remember Jesus’ call for forgiveness.”
