In Cameroon’s Kumbo diocese, the epicenter of separatist violence that pits Francophones and Anglophones against one another, Bishop George Nkuo said if Cameroon’s problems are to be resolved, then the people must get more involved in shaping the outcomes of various actions.
Nkuo said it’s the kind of engagement for which Mary is known and honored.
“Mary engaged the people and pleaded with Jesus on their behalf. She accompanied people in crisis and channeled the energy, love and hope of God to them,” Nkuo said in his homily for the Feast of the Assumption.
He challenged Christians not to “remain neutral bystanders in the tragedies that unfold before us.”
