Worshippers here prayed Sunday for Mr. Mandela, the hospitalized 94-year-old former president who remains almost a secular saint and a father figure to many in South Africa, a nation of 50 million people that has Africa's top economy.
Inside a Catholic church that once served as a major rallying point for anti-apartheid activists, the image of a gray-suited Nelson Mandela appears in a stained-glass window that also features angels and the cross.
"When you have someone that's willing to lead by example like he did, it makes things easier for people to follow," said Thabile Manana, who worshipped Sunday at Soweto's Regina Mundi Catholic church. "Lately, the examples are not so nice. It's hard. I'm scared for the country."
