Seven months have gone since conflict broke out in South Sudan on 15th December 2013 following a political crisis and power struggle that led to a civil war in the world’s youngest nation. The two main actors of this sad event are President Salva Kiir and his former vice-President Dr. Riek Machar.

Joy has distinguished practice in the Christian spiritual tradition. I say this because in my last few years of ministry as a Catholic priest, I found out that it isn’t easy for most of us Catholics to imagine someone like Saint Francis of Assisi smiling and happy. Not only that. When we see the photos of Pope John Paul II and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta captured by photographers, they were often smiling and even laughing, and I believe in their serenity, laughter and smiling faces, they reflect the presence of God in their daily life.

It was on Sunday afternoon July 20, 2014, when I went to Comboni Comprehensive College, in Lomin, to meet our Nuer youths from Old Fangak, in Jonglei state, South Sudan. Entering the compound of the College, I found a group of boys and girls seated under a mango tree chatting and waiting to go to watch the inter-class football competition. After a friendly exchange of greetings, one of the boys asked me “How long will you stay with us here father?” I answered “Up to October, if the situation improves and I will go back to where I have been working in Old Fangak in Jonglei state among the Nuer people”.

Environmental awareness has become an important issue on the agenda of environmentalists and of many head of states. It is increasingly becoming also an important activity in the church’s reflection and action. The so called “green Christianity”, or perhaps better say, faith seeking action based on a new relationship with mother earth, is trying to make the integrity of creation more concrete and practical.
