Memorial lecture: Fr Dumisani Vilakati’s address
On Saturday 22 May 2021
our diocese held the third “Bishop Zwane Memorial Lecture”
under the topic
We dare to dream of a peaceful Southern Africa:
Reflections on Pope Francis’ Fratelli Tutti
Below is Fr D. Vilakati’s address
Memory does not mean a matter that has come and gone. On the contrary, memory, following the best of the Jewish and our liturgical traditions, means presence. Therefore, the memory of Bishop Mandlenkhosi Zwane is an act of making him present and participating in the life of the Church in the here and now. He is inviting us to continue engaging in a culture of encounter so as to foster peace and harmony in the Southern African Region.
