7000 percent increase in Catholics

Zenit news reported that from 1900 to 2000 the amount of Catholics in Africa went from 2 million to 140 million.

Such enormous growth implies a tremendous richness for the Church, but it also means a host of pastoral challenges. Benedict XVI begins his second trip to Africa in one week from today, where he will deliver the apostolic exhortation that draws from the 2009 special synod on Africa.

The continent has around a 1001 million people. So we have a way to go. But by the grace of God, He will triumph.
