Bishop Macram Max Gassis, faithful shepherd of the Diocese of El Obeid in Sudan, is a near-legendary figure in Sudan since he first spoke out against human rights abuses in his country before a committee of the U.S. Congress in 1988.
Born in 1938 in Sudan, he did his seminary studies in Italy and England, returning to Sudan as a parish priest in 1964. By 1968, he was chancellor of the Khartoum archdiocese, and five years later, began a long tenure as secretary-general of the Sudanese Bishops’ Conference.
