Apostolic Nuncio urges the country to permanently focus on peace building
The Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela, Monsignor Pietro Parolin, underscored that the Church is in favor of reconciliation, which must be encouraged by all society sectors
The Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela, Monsignor Pietro Parolin, has wished on behalf of the Catholic Church permanent peace for the country. He extolled the importance of not making this something occasional, rather "a daily commitment."
"Peace is a gift that comes from God; we receive it from God. It is also a commitment that we all must make, individually and collectively," he remarked.
Monsignor also pointed out forgiveness, as a fundamental aspect so that the Venezuelan society could internally coexist.
"I believe that every person has a duty. The fields are different, but obviously, the Church welcomes everything that may bring about reconciliation and this pacific coexistence," he concluded.
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
