Foreign missionaries in France

Posted by francophoneaffairs on July 16, 2011

Long ago, the nouvel obs carried a penetrating story of the work of foreign missionaries in France but the recent feature on the same subject in Direct Matin captioned “Missionnaires africains chez les indigènes limousins” was really something worth reading. Because it spotlighted the work of one of the 1 4572 foreign priests in the France and contrary to what we have been told about the decline of religious practices.

The future of the euro

Posted by francophoneaffairs on December 15, 2010

There is a big debate now on the disappearance of the single currency.

and on europe1 are vivid illustrations of
why the euro will not disappear.
