The world, Africa, Cameroon, our communities and families; in a nutshell- the individual, have never been more in need of justice, peace and reconciliation than they are today. It is against this backdrop that Pope Benedict XVI, while on a recent visit to Benin, signed and entrusted the post synodal apostolic exhortation, Africae Munus, to the contemporary African Church. The document, which seeks to reinforce the ecclesial dynamism of a continent overwhelmed by immense socio-economic, political and religious conflicts, challenges Africans, from a purely biblical and therefore spiritual springboard, to stand up and walk. So Africa, stand up and walk!
