Vatican     PAPAL APPEAL FOR CONGOLESE ARCHBISHOP
Following his Wednesday audience, Pope John Paul II appealed to the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo to allow the Archbishop of Bukavu access to his people.
   He said: "In the last few days Bukavu's Archbishop Emmanuel Kataliko was prohibited by local authorities from returning to his Diocese. A serious violation which painfully affects all Catholics! In solidarity with the Clergy and faithful of Bukavu, I vow that the meritorious Prelate may soon return among his flock. At the same time, I appeal for the prompt implementation of the peace accords of Lusaka, asking the Lord for unity and reconciliation for that beloved Nation."
