Pope Francis in conversation with Jesuits in Congo and in South Sudan
On February 2, 2023, during his apostolic journey to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Pope Francis met with 82 Jesuits working in the country. Provincial Fr. Rigobert Kyungu and Bishop Donat Bafuidinsoni of Inongo, SJ, were among them. The meeting took place in Kinshasa at the Nunciature at 6:30 p.m. after the pope returned from the Cathedral of Our Lady of Congo, where a prayer meeting had been held with priests, deacons, consecrated men and women, and seminarians. After Fr. Kyungu presented the province, space was left for questions from those present.

Holy Father, the Society of Jesus receives its mission from the pope. What is the mission that you give to the Society today?

I agree with the universal apostolic preferences that the Society has developed, which consist first of all in pointing the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment.

The second is that of the mission of reconciliation and justice, which must be done by walking together with the poor, the excluded, those whose dignity is wounded. And then young people: we need to accompany them in creating the future. So collaboration in caring for the common home in the spirit of Laudato Si’.
