Even in Mali, which has just come out of a serious separatist conflict, "the Bishops, "refers Fr. Edmond Dembele, Secretary of the local Episcopal Conference, "have called on Christians and all Malians of good will to respond to Pope Francis’ appeal to pray and fast in order to avoid the world, and especially the innocent civilians, a conflict which no one knows the outcomes and the damage they could face."
