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. I witnessed the power of these and other remarkable traits like sense of humour, a more relaxed attitude to time, the resourcefulness and stamina in the face of suffering, that sustain families and groups in the face of enormous challenges. So, my message is that Africans have abundant capacity to meet their challenges.
