In a letter dated March 25, 1998 from the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, Vatican City, to the Presidents of the Episcopal Conferences of Africa and of Madagascar, the pastoral began by saying that, “[t]he secretariat for Non-Christians has become more and more convinced of the importance of giving greater pastoral attention to the traditional religion (incorrectly called animism) in Africa and Madagascar. This conviction is reinforced by the expressed wishes of many Bishops of Africa and Madagascar which our Secretariat receives, together with the experience gained by other heralds of Gospel in this continent” (Arinze 1998:1).
