His Grace Lukudu says that they are three Archbishops which include the Juba Catholic archdiocese, His Grace Bishop Paolino Lukudu Loro, His Grace Bishop Daniel Deng Bul of Episcopal Church of South Sudan & Sudan and His Grace Rev. Peter Gai Lual of the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan and Sudan.
“Several religious leaders have been calling for peace and reconciliation among citizens as the country descends to difficult times,” His Grace said.
On Oct 25th, a catholic priest in Juba, Fr Erkolano Lodu Tombe, cautions youth over hatred in the country saying that youth should stop listening to the wrong advice from Council of Elders based on tribalism.
Fr Lodu said this during a preaching at the Feast of St Anthony, Mary Claryte at St Joseph’s Catholic Church Parish.
“The youth to continue walking in the light so that they will be heirs of heaven as signs of their Christianity will make South Sudan shine in the world,” Fr. Lodu said.
Rev. Father says since South Sudan has been leading youth population, it is supposed to grow faster in prevalence of peace because a country without youth is dead.
“Young people have a big role to play spiritually and politically, I am reminding Catholic Church seminarians in the whole country to be ready to use their energy for the good of others,” Father said.
On October 14, The Archbishop of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan has called on citizens to end targeted ethnic killings and hostilities which add to further bloodshed in the country.
