Francis kissing the feet of South Sudan political leaders!
Who says there is no God seen in public square, in political or secular life? Who is seen above, kneeling in snow white dress? An angel from heaven?
You have to see to believe! Have you ever seen a Pope, any Pope ever for that matter, kneeling before politicians and kissing their feet begging prayerfully to bring peace on earth, more precisely in Africa? You must have seen shepherds on Christmas night kneeling in the manger to kiss the feet of Jesus, Emmanuel, God with us. This is happening even today among us.
You, a Lier?
At Jesus’ birth angels sang: “Glory to God in the heavens and peace to men of good will.” To make it happen you have to imitate Francis. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 1Jn.4.20 Which means you and I have to become his visible image, since God can never be seen.
So don’t blame everybody else saying God is not seen or made visible in public square, in secular world; blame yourself for not doing it. Just do what Pope Francis is doing, especially if you are a priest, bishop, Archbishop or Cardinal! Please stop indulging in your pass time called “blame game!” james kottoor, editor CCV

Juba (Agenzia Fides) – “South Sudanese were left positively stunned as they witnessed Papa Francesco plead on his knees and kiss the feet of politicians of South Sudan.
The video and images of the event are circulating television networks, social media and mobile devices of the general public” says Agenzia Fides Sister Elena Balatti, a Combonian missionary, who is in Juba, the capital of South Sudan. Yesterday, 11 April, at the conclusion of the South Sudan political leaders’ spiritual retreat, lead by Domus Sanctae Marthae in Vatican City (see Fides 9/4/2019), Papa Francesco kneeled before them imploring consideration for the future of the new State, to be established 12 May, while kissing the feet of President of the Republic, Salva Kiir Mayardi, and of the Vice Presidents elected, among whom Reik Machar and Rebecca Nyandeng De Mabior.
“The people recognize and immensely appreciate the efforts of the Holy Father, the Bishop and the local Church for everything that they are doing to promote peace in South Sudan” says Sister Elena Balatti.
“We were all moved by the Pope’s insistence in reminding the politicians of their duty to the people that are suffering dearly, that have experienced numerous losses, without mentioning those who have had to leave the country. This was the meaning behind the kneeling, he did it in the name of the people of South Sudan. It is a gesture much appreciated by the people here in South Sudan” concludes the missionary (LM) (Agenzia Fides 12/4/2019)
