Bishop Munzihirwa’s Centre
Kinshasa (DRC) - 24 April 2019

My dear friends, good afternoon!

My dear children, MBOTE NA BINO!

First of all, I thank God for allowing us to meet today. I thank you sincerely for your presence and your very warm welcome, in this home located in the center of Matonge, a popular and lively district of Kinshasa.

I heard about the Monseigneur Munzihirwa or Bishop Munzihirwa’s Center. I now know all the good that is done here, to welcome children who delink from their families and in a difficult situation on the streets of Kinshasa. I know that you work in very difficult conditions and in an environment deteriorated by the crisis. That is why I congratulate you on your courage and on your dedication. Be assured of my prayerful support.

To you children, my dear friends. Know that the Jesuits love you. They welcomed you to study, to train you to reintegrate in your families. Take seriously your education and training; pray intensely for your family. Pray for me as I pray for you.

NZAMBE ABENISA BINO. BOTIKALA NA BOBOTO (May God bless you, stay in peace.)
