Pope Francis and Africa: after Congo, high stakes visit to South Sudan

The Pope in Kinshasa called for mutual forgiveness as he met with survivors of the brutal three-decade old war in eastern Congo. It is just one of the highlights of a three-day visit that comes at a crucial juncture for the nation that is home to Africa’s largest Catholic population, one where the Church often fills the role of the state in providing basic social services, where the clergy’s mediation matters in this, an election year for Congo.
