Cardinal Medina denounces growing moral crisis in Chile

.- Cardinal Jorge Medina, ex-prefect of the Congregation for the Discipline of the Sacraments, lamented this week that his country is going through a serious crisis of values.

Celebrating Mass in Valparaiso, Cardinal Medina underscored that “there is certainly a moral crisis now, to what degree, I have no way of measuring.  But we have a morals crisis in some parts of Chile and I would say it is on the increase.”

The Mass was presided by the local bishop, Gonzalo Duarte, in honor of Cardinal Medina’s 50th anniversary of his priestly ordination.

Among the attendees were the head of the Navy, Miguel Angel Vergara, representatives of different dioceses in Chile, and delegations from Catholic schools in the region.

After the Mass, Cardinal Medina reflected on his priesthood and said he was happy, although he felt he had many things yet to accomplish.
