Zambia: Cardinal Mazombwe laid to rest



Zambia’s second cardinal Medardo Joseph Mazombwe was laid to rest on Tuesday (Sept. 3) at the Cathedral of the Child Jesus in Lusaka after a requiem mass held at the same cathedral. The archbishop emeritus of Lusaka passed away on Thursday after a long battle with cancer. He would have turned 82 later this month. In a telegram of condolences addressed to the current Archbishop of Lusaka, His Grace Telesphore George Mpundu, the Holy Father praised Cardinal Mazombwe's "unfailing commitment to the spread of the Gospel in Africa and his tireless efforts on behalf of the poor."
