Bishop calls on Argentineans to bear witness to hope amidst relativism

.- Bishop Baldomero Carlos Martin of San Justo is calling on Catholics to bear witness to hope in an age marked by relativism that blocks “the splendor of Truth.”

In his Advent message, Bishop Martin urged the faithful “not to be afraid” of being men and women of hope in this time of “profound challenges and trials,” especially as “the meaning of life is obscured by a relativism that does not let us see the splendor of Truth and the crisis of civilization and pretensions cultural change remind us ‘that we are not only in an era of change but also a change of eras that is seriously compromising the identity of our nation.’”

Catholics must recall in this season that “Christ has triumphed over sin and death and that in Him we find the source and strength to encourage one another and not be discouraged by the realities around us,” the bishop said.

“Hope helps us discern and recognize the seeds of the Kingdom of God that are always present in the midst of the darkness. A Light has already shown in the darkness and the darkness cannot overcome it,” Bishop Martini underscored.

“May the challenges of today lead us to mature in an authentic spirit of hope and make us strong and generous, firm and creative in finding paths of solidarity and brotherhood, thus putting a human face on communion,” he added.
