Juba, April 15, 2012 (SSNA) — Today Sunday 16th April 2012, I went to pray in St. Theresa Cathedral at Kator in Juba as usual. It was a celebration for Silver as well as Golden Jubilee for Four Sacred Heart of Jesus’ Sisters and for profession of a final vow for one Sister.
The mass took four hours at the end of which Arch Bishop of Juba Diocese, Rt. Rev. Paulino Lokudu Loro read out a statement of the Roman Catholic Church Bishops of Republic of South Sudan on the current borders war.
The statement called the on-going war as shameful and condemned what Juba and Khartoum are doing to take the two nations back to suffering.
Also the statement regretted the attitude of Juba that has shown disrespect and loggerhead with the international community who have stood with people of the new country through out their struggle against injustice.
The statement emphasized that the choice of peace is difficult but a sure way to prosperity than the choice of war, which is the easiest and surest way to hell. It urged the two countries to choose peace with justice and avoid war.
The Bishops called for dialogue and peaceful means of resolving the pending problems and issues between the Sudan and South Sudan. They encouraged the international community not to give up in helping the two countries achieve a lasting peace and good neighborhood.
