.- The Archbishop of Santa Cruz, Cardinal Julio Terrazas, called on Bolivians this week to proclaim the value of human life and to reject what he believes to be society's increasing "attacks" on it.

During the Mass for Corpus Christi, Cardinal Terrazas said that the Eucharist must be lived each day in our hearts, “because every day there are more excuses invented to justify the taking of human lives, each day there are more attacks against life and the factors that prevent a life from reaching its fullness are multiplied.”

“Our task, as the people of God nourished and strengthened by the body and blood of the Lord, is to continue proclaiming this life, even though many people don’t like it,” the cardinal stated. “Let us become accustomed to life, let us be capable of experimenting and feeling what the widow surely felt when the Lord gave her back her son and said, 'Look, he is alive, he lives.'”

The cardinal also prayed that “our joys, our works, our sorrows and sufferings, our limitations always bring us to recognize the Lord as the God who journeys with his people.”
