I come to share with them the Good news

Fr Martin ALI KEKE NDEMSOU is my name. I was born in Chad in a Christian family. Being born in a Christian family opened for me the way to become a catholic priest.

This quotation from the letter of St. Paul the Colossians invites me and all of us to see Jesus Christ in our brothers and sisters, and to love them as we love him. In the Papal Bull of my nomination, Pope Francis asks God to help me to “to carry also the episcopal Order, through burning charity, which is the root of all virtues”.
