Pope Francis Meets With The Bishops Of Guinea And One Month Later Massive Landslide Guinea Goldmine Kills Five Women & Two Girls
“At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all Nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)24 March 2014 Pope meets with the Bishops of Guinea:
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis received the bishops of Guinea on Monday, who are here in Rome for their ad limina visits. The small west African nation, with its capital in the coastal city of Conakry, has recently experienced a period of intense political upheaval, with several coups and attempted coups covering the period from 2008-2010, when the first presidential elections judged to be “free and fair” were held since the country achieved independence in 1958.
Guinea’s population is predominantly Muslim, with a significant minority – about 10% of people – professing Catholic faith.
In remarks prepared for the three visiting Guinean bishops (H.E. Vincent Coulibaly of Conakry, H.E. Emmanuel Félémou of Kankan and H.E. Raphaël Balla Guilavogui of N’Zérékoré), and delivered to them in writing during the course of their audience, the Holy Father expressed, “Joy and gratitude for the great work of evangelization which is accomplished in Guinea.”
Pope Francis went on to say, “The Church needs [the bishops of Guinea] and [their] communion,” with the bishop of Rome, who is the Church’s universal pastor. “Discord among Christians,” said Pope Francis, “is the greatest obstacle to evangelization.”
In Guinea less than a month later:
22 April 2014 Conakry (AFP) - Five women and two girls have been killed in a landslide at a goldmine in northeastern Guinea, police said on Wednesday. The collapse happened on Tuesday in Kintinian, a settlement by Siguiri, a city on the Niger river near the border with Mali. "The collapse of the mine, which also wounded at least eight people, including two seriously, occurred... at dawn in a goldmine frequented by illegal miners who don't think twice about going into deep shafts that only they know and which can be up to 100 metres (330 feet) long," a policeman said on condition of anonymity. He said authorities had shut the mine several times after discovering non-licensed miners working in its shafts. Guinea sits atop huge deposits of gold, bauxite and diamond but the majority of its people live in poverty and unregulated and dangerous artisanal mining by individuals is commonplace. Around 20 miners were killed in a landslide at a goldmine in Siguiri in November last year, and another eight were killed in the eastern town of Mandiana in March. "Over the past five years there have been at least seven accidents like this which have left at least 46 people dead," said Siguiri resident Mamadou Diawara, who saw the collapse. Police said artisanal mining had been banned in the area since 2012 and they were investigating a Guinean mining company over the incident.
