#RELIGION: Pope Francis Appoints Denis Isizoh Into The Pontifical Council
Pope Francis has selected the assistant religious administrator of Onitsha Archdiocese, Anambra State, Denis Isizoh, into the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialog.
The Catholic diocesan of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor unveiled this in salutary message to Isizoh on Tuesday got by our reporter.
He portrayed Isizoh’s arrangement as a cheering one, expressing that his height would achieve a ton of constructive turns of events and altruism to the individuals of God, particularly to the Nigerian Catholics.
He stated, “Minister Isizoh’s arrangement is a square peg in a square gap. He is more than qualified and grounded around there. It is a recognizable landscape for him. He worked intimately with Cardinal Arinze. He knows his onions. I am content with his most recent arrangement. It is a move the correct way. I realize he’ll succeed.
‘I need to say thanks to Pope Francis for the arrangement. The Supreme Pontiff took a shrewd choice. We as a whole will profit by Bishop Isizoh’s rise. We are here to help him. We owe him our supplications”.
The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialog is an extraordinary division of the Roman Curia for relations with the individuals of different religions.
It was set up by Pope Paul VI on the Pentecost Sunday, 19 May 1964, during the Second Vatican Council, as the Secretariat for Non-Christians. It was renamed the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialog by St. Pope John Paul II on 28 June 1988.
