Kenya: Addressing the Pastoral Dichotomy between Faith and Life

At a conference organized to deliberate on the challenges and opportunities of the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of Pope John Paul II “Ecclesia in Africa” after 25 years of its publication, a Kenyan Bishop acknowledged the “revolutionary” nature of the document but noted the exhortation’s threefold limitations.

“25 years later after the issuance of the Apostolic Exhortation ‘Ecclesia in Africa’ by Pope John Paul II in 1995,” Bishop John Oballa said in his keynote address, “many church leaders, agents of evangelization and theologians can prudently say that its vision, message and mission was an ecclesial ‘revolution’ intended to bring deeper evangelization, holistic transformation and relevant renewal to the life of the people on African continent.”
