Cardinal John Onaiyekan - Witness Interview

February 24, 2013 - To understand the need for interfaith dialogue, look no further than Nigeria, where Christian churches have been attacked by violent extremists from Boko Harem. The violence threatens to unsettle coexistence in the country, which is evenly divided between Christians and Muslims. Shepherding the faithful through this pastoral reality is Cardinal John Onaiyekan, the Archbishop of the Nigerian capital of Abuja and one of the Church's newest Cardinals. Cardinal Onaiyekan shares how the New Evangelization is possible, even in a divided nation like his own.
