Bolivian cardinal says meaning of the family needs to be recovered

.- The Archbishop of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia, Cardinal Julio Terrazas Sandoval, called on Bolivians this week to recover the meaning of the family, “made up of extraordinary diversity,” but called to be “a sign of respectful unity” in the manner in which the Lord wants for his Church “and which we want to build up.”

Upon returning from the International Eucharistic Congress held in Quebec, the cardinal commented on the celebration of the Pauline Year and noted that St. Paul dedicated himself to the service of the Lord.

He served Christ in such a way, the cardinal noted, that at the end of his days he was able to say, “It is not I but Christ who lives in me.”  “That is simplicity and humility,” Cardinal Terrazas said.

He also referred to Blessed Nazaria Ignacia of Bolivia, whom he called “a simple woman who understood how to reach the simple and the humble; a woman who understood the reality of Bolivia in an extraordinarily evangelical way.”
