During the past week which the Catholic Church set aside as Laudato Si’ Week, which ran from 16th to 24th May 2020, Catholics throughout the world have been walking in solidarity for a more just and sustainable future. The fifth anniversary of Laudato Si’ offers us an opportunity to act together in a strategic way of taking care of God’s creation, our Common Home.

Today marks exactly 5 years since the release of this popular Encyclical and as we end the cerebrations today, we are delighted to note that Laudato Si is not only a well-written letter by Pope Francis to the people of the world, but has over the years become a point of reference for the Christian Denominations, other religions, government policymakers, including the United Nations, as well as environmental groups and movements worldwide. It is a letter that touches on all sectors of life, reminding us that our socio-economic, political and environmental organisation and practices, must not lead to increasing the crisis that mother earth is currently going through.

Caritas Zambia would like to join the rest of Africa in expressing profound gratitude to the many brave African sons and daughters who lost their lives during the struggle to free the African people from the yoke of colonialism apartheid, humiliation and oppression. The founding fathers of our continent such as Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Modibo Keita of Mali, Gamal Nasser of Egypt, Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, Ahmed Sekou Toure of Guinea, Patrice Lumumba of Congo, Ahmed Ben Bella of Algeria, Julius Nyerere of Tanzania and our own Kenneth Kaunda of Zambia had this burning desire to see a peaceful, prosperous and democratic Africa in which her daughters and sons would live in peace and harmony despite their many divergent views which they hold.
