Forgiveness, Reconciliation, and Justice

Thanks to Cristina Vargas for sending this letter from the Zambia Episcopal Conference.


A letter to all Catholics in Zambia on constant attacks directed at Catholics in the public media

"But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matt. 5:44)

1. To All Catholics in Zambia!
2. On behalf of my brother Catholic Bishops in Zambia, I greet you all in the name of
our Lord Jesus!
3. In recent months, we have all witnessed a growing barrage of attacks in the public
media against the Catholic Church in Zambia, its leadership, priests and even its
doctrine. Many of you have made representation to us, your Bishops and spoken of
your pain at these unwarranted attacks. At a recent Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) Executive Board meeting held in Lusaka on May 3, 2011, at Kapingila Guest House, this issue was one of the items on our agenda. It is for this reason that I write you this letter, on behalf of my brother Catholic Bishops, in Zambia.
