Bishop speaks out for Colombians impacted by violence

.- The secretary general of the Bishops’ Conference of Colombia, Bishop Juan Vicente Cordoba, praised the government’s openness to dialogue and spoke of the importance of assisting the millions of Colombians displaced by violence.

The prelate noted that “openness to participation” by the government is “very positive.”  “So too,” he continued, “is upfront, sincere and direct dialogue.”

Bishop Cordoba also spoke of the drama of the millions impacted by violence inside the country, saying it is important people see that those displaced are allowed to have their land back and are given assistance to re-establish their homes.

The restitution of land must be part of a government program led by knowledgeable and honest officials who can act with authority, the bishop said.
