Called to lead during trying times

By Bishop José Luis IMC

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Livi laba yinyama!
The Word became flesh!

Our diocese celebrates once again having received the news that Dr Rosemary Khosi Mthethwa has been elected International President of CICIAMS (International Catholic Committee of Nurses and Medico-Social Assistants – Vatican City). This is a very important recognition of the faith, dedication and capabilities that Dr Mthethwa has shown all her life.

Her election reminds us of Micah’s words: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” (5:2). Our diocese and country has been able to offer the world the services and leadership of one of us.

I invite you to keep her in your prayers, aware of the significance of her service during a pandemic affecting the whole world.

Fraternally Yours in Christ, 

+ José Luis Ponce de León IMC
Bishop of Manzini
