.- Bishop Ruben Frassia of Avellaneda-Lanus, Argentina, called on politicians and businessmen this week to remember that "in all tourist activity, the ultimate end must always be respect for human dignity."

"Everyone who works in the tourism industry is called to build structures that make it healthy, popular and economically sustainable, always keeping in mind that the context of all tourism activity should always be the search for the common good," he added.

Noting the upcoming celebration of World Tourism Day, the bishop called on those who work in that industry in Argentina to take concrete steps to guarantee the security of tourists and their peaceful visits to local areas.

Tourism workers should remember that their industry should be marked by "responsibility, honesty and culture," he added.

Bishop Frassia will mark World Tourism Day on Friday with a special Mass at the Parish of San Ildefonso.
