“The step taken by our Pope Francis warms the hearts of the victims of war, trampled in these nations, and symbolizes the friendly bond between South Sudan and the Holy See”: says the Bishop of the diocese of Tombura-Yambio, Msg. Barani Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala to Agenzia Fides, welcoming the decision to provide for the presence of a diplomat of the Holy See in Juba.
