This week the spokesman for the Argentinean Bishops’ Conference, Father Jorge Oesterheld, noted that the bishops are concerned about the increase in the country's criminal activity.
According to the AICA news agency, Fr. Oesterheld added that the Argentinean bishops desire “to work for reconciliation in the country, so all can live together in peace.”
He also underscored that the climate of insecurity is “without a doubt one of the great sorrows of Argentineans and of the Church.”
Father Oesterheld’s comments came as the executive committee of the bishops’ conference met to listen to reports from the bishops’ committees on Faith and Culture, Social Ministries, the Family and the Laity.
