Ugandan bishops: as papal visit approaches, reduce gap between faith and life

The Uganda Episcopal Conference has issued a pastoral letter on Pope Francis’s upcoming visit to Uganda.

“In a country like ours where unity and national consensus has eluded us for decades, the Pope comes as a bridge builder,” the bishops said in their October 8 statement. “This demands of us to imitate Christ, who came to serve rather than to be served; it invites us to be servants to one another.”

“We draw to your attention the alarming gap and contradictions between the faith we profess and the life we live, between the gospel and some traditional African practices such as polygamy, cohabitation, trial marriage, witchcraft and human sacrifice,” they added. “The family is also affected by infidelity, denial of mutual love, child abuse and domestic violence, among other things.”
