Pope Francis is set to begin his tour of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and South Sudan tomorrow. This is one of his religious activities he has been doing since he took over. He will visit the nations with a message of peace and reconciliation, which many hope will bring a much-needed stop to the conflicts in the nation.
The Kinshasa Catholic Church says the purpose of this trip of Pope Francis is to invite men and women of Congo to pray more for peace. They also need to pray for the healing of the wounds of all kinds in order to face the real perils of the country together.
When the Pope lands in Kinshasa, the head of the Roman Catholic Church will be making his 40th trip abroad. The pope will meet with Congo’s authorities as well as the victims of the conflict in the eastern part of the country
However, the 59th country on his itinerary is just as unique as the 60th, South Sudan. He will stay his DR Congo visit in Kinshasa until February 3, when he will depart to Juba. He will be traveling to South Sudan along with the archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. While in South Sudan, they are scheduled to spend there two days before returning to the Vatican.
