Bishops of Argentina call for laws respecting human dignity

.- In a statement released following the 155th meeting of the executive committee of the Argentinian bishops' conference, prelates called for the creation of laws respecting human dignity, the family and society.

In their message, the bishops encouraged government leaders to respect their autonomy and emphasized that those who struggle the most when the nation suffers are the poor.  “For this reason it is time to prioritize the creation of laws that meet the real needs of our people,” instead of pushing “interests that do not taken into account the nature of the human person, family and society,” they said.

The bishops went on to recall that, “our homeland is a gift we have been given.  Our nation is a task that brings us together and demands the commitments of our efforts.  To assume this mission with a spirit of fraternity and solidarity is the best way to celebrate our country’s bicentennial.”

“We Christians invite all men and women of good will to be united with us in prayer to invoke the Lord, who is the strength of his people, and to pray to him for our beloved Argentinian country,” the bishops concluded.
