17 Dec Day 15: Women
#Then: This is the late Doro Litumbe who was the mother of Fr Paulo Litumbe, the first Bishop of Niassa. So often, we don’t see the individuals, often women, behind Bishops and church leaders who have been instrumental in growing these foundational qualities of love, faith, humility and compassion.
#Now: Today we pray for the women and men behind the leaders in the Niassa, Lebombo & Angola, the mothers and fathers and spouses.
Lord Jesus, we thank you for Doro Litumbe and for others today who are supporting these leaders. Amen.
With thanks to the Bodleian Libraries, The University of Oxford and USPG Archives.
