ECCE EGO DOMINE
Cardinal Polycarp Pengo, Archbishop of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
H.E. CARD. POLYCARP PENGO
"He has shown a high level of humility for seeing the truth inside himself and has come out publicly to announce his decision to resign. He has shown us that the only thing to fear is God and that God will always be there to guide us so long as we live in this world knowing that we belong to Him. ... It is a lesson to leaders who have overstayed in power to the extent that their people are suffering because they have failed to serve them. ... We will soon converge in Vatican but while there we are not guided by the colour of our skins, not by the continents where we come from but we surrender ourselves to God and the whole process is determined by the Holy Spirit."
