WDEL's Allan Loudell speaks with Cardinal Tumi in-depth.

The first Cardinal from Cameroon is paying a visit to Delaware, and he visited WDEL.

Christian Cardinal Tumi tells WDEL's Allan Loudell there are a number of reasons church attendance at Catholic churches in the U.S. has declined in the wake of the priest sexual scandals, and he says the church will overcome these problems because it is not a human institution.

"So despite the weaknesses of the church, she will continue to persevere in this world as a sign of salvation of the whole world," says Cardinal Tumi.

The African Archbishop Emeritus is in Delaware for a few days, and he said on the Delaware News at Noon with Alan Loudell, he still sees good things happening among young people in the church, even in America.

"I have participated in quite a number of huge rallies here in America.
I've always gone back to Africa astonished at the face of the youth, for quite a number of them there's still hope everywhere in the world and in every church," says Cardinal Tumi.
