Goma, Dem. Rep. of Congo - Floribert and a memory that grows

On the grave of Floribert Bwana Chui, in Goma, a vase of flowers was placed, the one that the detainees of Secondigliano (Naples), touched by his story, had shaped to honor his memory. 

His witness of resistance against evil and corruption, of redemption in a wounded country, keeps striking, even very far from Kivu and Congo. 

Because, as Pope Francis said in Santa Marta preaching on April 7th, speaking of today's martyrs, "it is the testimony of Christians who live their life seriously and say, 'I can not do this, I can not do harm to another; I can not live a life in half, I have to give my testimony'".
