Abba Angelo: A Life for Ethiopia. An Italian Bishop in the Service of the Needy By Eva-Maria Kolmann
“Abba Angelo, Abba Angelo,” cry the children when they see the old white jeep with the cracked windscreen. “Abba Angelo,” the grownups also shout after the vehicle. Bishop Angelo Moreschi from Gambella himself sits behind the wheel. Everyone here recognises him from afar. Even the many soldiers who stop cars on the country road wave at him and let him pass. You get the feeling the bishop from Brescia in Italy is truly at home here. “In Ethiopia I really understood the Gospel,” he says with radiant eyes.
