In his address to the bishops from Chad, the Pontiff focused on the challenge of establishing the Christian faith among the people of a traditional African culture. He said that “the good aspects of their traditions must be considered and accorded their due value– because Christ did not come to destroy cultures, but rather to lead them to fulfilment– while that which is not Christian must be clearly denounced.”
