Abp. of Canterbury Now in Africa to Discuss Issues; Focus Is on Persecution, Harassment of Christians

The Ecumenical News International website reports that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, today (October 6, 2011) began a three-nation, eight-day visit to Africa during which he hopes to discuss the persecution and harassment of Christians with Robert Mugabe, president of Zimbabwe.

"My visit to Africa is not political, it is a pastoral visit," said Williams.

"What difference that will make, I cannot tell now," he added upon arriving in Blantyre -- Malawi's commercial capital.

The Archbishop of Canterbury is the spiritual head of more than 80 million members of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
