Lillian Omari, from the Missionary Community of St Paul the Apostle (MCSPA) writes: During the feast of all Souls, at Ave Maria and St Thomas Parishes in Tombura County, South Sudan, all the Christians come together to join our brothers and sisters who lost someone during this ongoing war in our area.
There are many people who could not bury their families, some because they had to run away from the fighting, others were killed trying to protect their families. Many people we left on the same spot they died. For this, we asked all those who could not bury their families, to write down the names and come with a symbolic leaf wrap to bury their families. It was so emotional, as some families had eight to ten names of their loved ones.
