Cardinal Maurice Czerny SJ : ‘Africans Have Abundant Capacities to Meet their Challenges’
During my 8 years in Africa, I learned about Ubuntu, which comprises many virtues that are entirely consistent with the ideals that Jesus expressed in the Beatitudes and that have become the tradition of works of mercy. I also learned about the living links between ourselves, our ancestors and those who are still waiting to be born.
