January 27, 2015

Niamey (Agenzia Fides) - "We want to renew our friendship and brotherhood to the entire Muslim community in our Country", write the Bishops of Niger in a message to the Muslim community, sent to Agenzia Fides, after the anti-Christian violence that have heavily affected the Church in recent days (see Fides 21 and 22 January 2015). The Bishops thank the Muslims who showed “gestures and acts of solidarity" during the attacks against the Christian community.
                "We are united in the pain that you share with us. Our places of worship, and most of our infrastructure have been destroyed but our faith is intact", write the Bishops. "We will build again what our common enemies have deliberately aimed to destroy". state the Bishops. (Source: Agenzia Fides 27/01/2015)
