Here is a news item about the pope's recent touring activities!

Pope celebrates stadium Mass as Africa tour ends - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-15811677

The pontiff called for reconciliation as he addressed the Friendship Stadium in Cotonou, Benin's main city in the heartland of the Voodoo religion.

There's an interesting combination or mixed up thinking!

The 84-year-old handed over a document showing how doctrine in the Roman Catholic church could heal rifts.

On Saturday, the second day of his visit to Benin, the Pope travelled to the city of Ouidah where he called for respect for traditional beliefs but also issued a warning against witchcraft.

We can't have these witches abusing children can we ! ??

The rise of Catholicism in Africa is in sharp contrast to Europe, which has seen a steep fall in the number of active faithful.
