CATHOLIC recent confusion instigated from outside
By Kidega Livingstone
The Retired Archbishop of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Juba, Paulino Lokudu Loro denied that the confusion within the church came from within the church.
He was not clear exactly where the confusion came from saying “The confusion did not originate from us, it came from outside. There is no any problem between Bari and Lotuko. What I understand this confusion needs reconciliation and forgiveness among us,” said Rt. Archbishop during the installation ceremony of new Archbishop of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Juba Stephen Ameyu yesterday.
He described the confusion as “unbelievable” because it does not exist in the Catholic faith.
“I want to tell you today that we have to reconcile and heal among ourselves. If I did some wrong for you in this diocese forgive me. If you want me to go to hell because I did bad to you, I am ready no problem. Let us renew our lives,” he said.
Retired Archbishop Lokudu served for 36 years as the Archbishop of the Metropolitan Dioceses of Juba since he was installed in 1983. He said he is free at last after 36 years in service.
He welcomed the new Archbishop, Stephen Ameyu and directed him to take care of Torit and Juba dioceses.
Vice President Dr. James Wani Igga said that resigning and retirement of Bishops is a normal thing that happens across the World.
He said Churches should avoid violence because it sends wrong message across the World.
“We have to forgive on peace and war. Even in churches and in the government they should try to avoid the act of violence because nobody needs chaos in this World,” he said.
