The city of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is bustling with life as pilgrims continue to stream in ahead of Pope Francis’ pastoral visit to the Central African nation next week.
Some of those arriving have come from neighboring countries including the Central African Republic (CAR) and Angola, a Catholic Priest ministering in DRC has told ACI Africa in an interview.
“So many people are coming from near and far to see and listen to the Holy Father. There are those who are crossing the border from Angola, Central African Republic and from our neighboring countries,” Fr. Patrick Lonkoy Bolengu MHM said in the Friday, January 27 interview.
