.- In an editorial this week in the Archdiocesan newspaper, the Archdiocese of Mexico issued a new call to Mexicans to increase their efforts to bring about national reconciliation.

According to the editorial, more than a truce, the country needs to enter into the dynamism of reconciliation in order to ward off threats of social unrest. It also argued there is still time to overcome discord, and it exhorted Mexicans to show they have the will and the capacity to handle democracy.

“It’s not enough to say ‘Long live Mexico,’ we must demonstrate our patriotism through responsibility, with personal and collective work that brings about better development,” said the article.

Likewise, the editorial issued a call to “overcome the authoritarianism and populism which have done us so much wrong, and to seek consensus and to respect agreements, but above all to bring dignity back to political life. ”
 
The editorial also underscored that disappointment and discouragement “regarding our young democracy should teach us that we cannot put all of our hope in any one system.”

It added that elections teach us that the responsibility of Mexicans does not end at the ballot box, that the great structural problems are not magically solved, but above all that the country is not only built by the politicians, but by the citizens as well.
