We publish here the extraordinarily courageous and insightful pastoral letter of His Excellency, Bishop Matthew Kuckah , who is ordinary of the Diocese of Sokoto, Nigeria. Sokoto has been severely attacked by the ISIS allied terrorist organization, Boko Harem. This pastoral entitled  Eclesia in Sokoto, valiantly calls the Catholic faithful of his diocese to the fullness of our holy Catholic faith with a strong “courage in action,” and displays a powerful witness to all bishops for the need to fight with and for the faithful in the great contemporary spiritual and material battle for souls. -Editor
