Africa is full of contrasts that are an essential part of its identity. On the rich African continent, the Church strives to work for unity in diversity, respecting ethnic and linguistic divisions.
"The ethnic, linguistic, and tribal divisions in Africa can be overcome promoting unity in diversity.
I want to thank the religious sisters, priests, laity, and missionaries for their work to create dialogue and reconciliation among the various sectors of African society. Let us pray this month that the Church in Africa, through the commitment of its members, may be the seed of unity among her peoples and a sign of hope for this continent."
Each month, The Pope Video disseminates the Holy Father's prayer intentions regarding the challenges of humanity and the mission of the Church, through the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer)
