Cardinal Rivera calls for dialogue in election disputes

.- The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera, is calling on Mexicans to embrace dialogue as the means to resolving the political and ideological differences that are dividing the country and not allow them to morph into resentment and hatred, “which could spark a destructive spiral of violence.”

“We must cease doing wrong and begin to do good,” the cardinal said.  “It is time to build bridges of dialogue and understanding; it is time to remove the blinder that keeps us from seeing evil and injustice.”

In a statement which he read at the conclusion of Sunday Mass, Cardinal Rivera emphasized, “It is essential to reconsider economic policies and models that only benefit the few and leave the vast majority of our people without hope.”  

“It is no longer possible to tolerate corruption and the idolatrous ambition of illicitly attained riches,” he stated.  “Mexico must change, but it should avoid the destructive temptation of violence, which creates more pain and suffering.”
