Algerian archbishop says evangelisation 'possible' in Muslim countries


Archbishop Henri Teissier of Algiers has said it is possible to proclaim the Gospel in a Muslim country, if it is a witness of love.

The leader of the Catholic Church in Algeria was speaking on Tuesday when he met with diocesan directors of the Migrants Foundation, from Italy.

Representing a minority Church in a Muslim land, the archbishop said that in Algeria "the proclamation is possible, although it is not a catechumenal proclamation but one of the God of love, of gratuity, of freedom of conscience."

In a largely Muslim nation, "the proclamation might resonate if it is based on common commitments in favour of human dignity," he said.
