Pope Francis Visit

Pope Francis has urged Catholics to increase their zeal for evangelization, and to invite the young to be an active part of the Church as he wrapped up his Africa visit. The three- nation trip took him to Mozambique, Madagascar as well as Mauritius. Addressing the mass in the small island of Mauritius , Francis said despite the country's economic growth in the last few decades, many young people are still suffering from unemployment, which makes them uncertain about the future.

Channel Africa spoke to Reverend Father Patrick Rakeketsi, Southern African Catholic Bishops Conference associate Secretary General, about Pope Francis’ Africa visit and its significance.
