Having spent quite a bit of time working and living in Central Africa, amid conflicts and their consequences, I am really pleased to see America Magazine's commitment toward keeping the situation in CAR alive in the thoughts and conversations of American Catholics. Too often such complexities are passed over.... Praying for all of the children of CAR and the whole of the continent: that they may come to manifest the "fraternal unity of all" envisioned by John XXIII at the commencement of the Second Vatican Council.
