Uphold the human dignity agenda for poor people according to the Gospel and Catholic social teachings, Tanzania Episcopal Conference Secretary-General urges AMECEA Bishops.
Fr Charles Kitima says promoting human dignity for meaningful unity in AMECEA countries is among the key responsibilities of Church leaders.
“Sometimes the poor are facing violence due to ethnic differences and other causes simply because they are poor”, he stresses.
“AMECEA society should be organized in a way that people who are rich and people who are poor have equal dignity”, he adds.
Fr Kitima says Church leaders have moral duty to help the less fortunate attain their dignity as much as they can because they are also created in the image of God.
The Secretary-General urges the Bishops to continue playing their prophetic role against systems that undermine human dignity and the rights of the poor people and vulnerable in societies.
Economic, political, or social activities should not go against human dignity but should help human being to progress in dignity, he notes.
The Secretary-General was presenting a topic entitled “Promoting human dignity towards meaningful unity” to AMECEA 19th plenary Assembly on Wednesday, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
