Pope Francis’ First Ever African Tour Begins Today



Pope Francis Visits South Korea - Day Five

Pope Francis is beginning his first official tour of Africa today.

He will visit Kenya, Uganda, and the Central African Republic, Voice of America reports.

Shedding more light on his visit, CNN states:

When Pope Francis begins his inaugural papal trip to Africa, he’ll bring a message of hope and peace to a rapidly growing Catholic population facing its own challenges…

His visit, which takes place despite the instability, highlights the Catholic Church’s explosive growth in Africa and how crucial the region is to the church’s future, experts say.

      Why don’t these people never visit nigeria. When president Obama , bush did their African tour, Nigeria wasn’t on his list.

    I would love the pope to visit Nigeria but honestly, if he does, I might not go to see him. Not with the security issues in the country. I was asking myself the other day ‘what if the Pope has to visit naija, what state is the safest?’ I couldn’t come up with an appropriate answer. If he comes to Lagos, mehn, the robbery of that day would find its way into the Guinness book of records, what of Abuja, Kano, Kaduna and the fear of bombs? Maybe if he visits places like Ogun, Ondo, Ibadan, Enugu, Anambra or Imo, I would go but still, it’s not safe.
    May God bless the Pope as he visits Africa!

      The CAR, Kenya and Uganda are also high risk counries, struggling with insurity. Many analysis shows that the Pope is taking risk. But, when you are lead by the Holy Spirit, boundaries is a state of mind.

      Even if he was going to France he would still be taking a risk. The whole world is risky.
