This week Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata encouraged Argentineans to seek out truth, because only truth will bring about justice, the basis for peace in society.
“It is necessary to be converted to the truth in order to live in justice, in order to have a correct understanding of what is just and to do what is just. Only then we will be able to enjoy peace,” the archbishop said during his program, Keys to a Better World.
“Man is made for the truth, for justice,” he continued, “but justice alone is not enough. We need a little bit more, we need love, solidarity, charity and friendship. Then we will be able to enjoy peace,” he explained.
Archbishop Aguer warned that if a person cannot be himself and his rights are not respected, “he will demand what he deserves. When these unjust relationships multiply, a climate in which there is a lack of peace is created,” the archbishop said.
Ensuring justice in society “is a very complex task,” he continued, “which belongs first of all to those in political leadership, but in a certain sense it also belongs to all citizens, to all the inhabitants of a given nation,” he stated.
