Buenos Aires bishop says ad limina visit is ‘pastoral and religious’

.- The Secretary General of the Bishops’ Conference of Argentina, Auxiliary Bishop Enrique Eguia Segui of Buenos Aires denied news reports that claimed he criticized the Argentinean government and lamented attempts to “distort the pastoral and religious meaning” of the ad limina visit of the country’s bishops which will take place this week at the Vatican.

Speaking to the AICA news agency, Bishop Eguia explained that there seems to be “an interest that anything said appears to be a confrontation between the government and the Church.”  The bishop denied reports that he has been criticizing the country’s government.

In an interview with Vatican Radio, he pointed out that the bishops of Argentina are concerned about “how to sustain and increase the faith of our people.”  He said the country has been experiencing a profound crisis during the last seven years and that the bishops are seeking to discover the best way for the Church to respond.
