We wish to appreciate the contributions of Very Rev Monsignor Professor Dr Obiora Ike to a central mission of the Catholic Church, the pastoral ministry of justice and peace. Today, Justice and Peace 'Departments have been positioned among the central organs of the pastoral ministry in every Catholic Diocese in Nigeria. The Justice and Peace Department of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu, popularly known as CIDJAP (Catholic Institute of Development, Justice and Peace) stands out as a shining example that exposes the importance of the ministry of Justice and Peace in the Catholic Church. We would be stating the obvious if we maintain that CIDJAP IS synonymous with Rev Father, or rather Very Rev Monsignor Obiora Ike. As a point of departure, we wish to reiterate that every faithful follower of Christ, who deserves this characterization, must make an option for the practice of justice that breeds, nurtures and sustains peace. We shall cite examples of people who, even in the heat of war and hatred, opted and worked for the reconciliation that would restore justice. and peace. We shall then proceed to survey the origin .. '. of what we today call Justice and Peace Departments. as official organs of the pastoral ministry in the Catholic Dioceses all over the world.
