.- The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, has called on the faithful to participate in the days of prayer for peace and reconciliation in the country, which the Mexican bishops have designated take place in every parish until August 6.

During a Mass marking the fourth anniversary of the canonization of St. Juan Diego, the cardinal prayed for his intercession and that of Our Lady of Guadalupe to enlighten and strengthen, “our leaders, all the builders of our pluralistic society, and all men and women of good will, that they might genuinely restore the ethical foundation upon which they wish to build the future of our economy and social and political life.”

Likewise, during his homily at the Basilica of Guadalupe, the cardinal emphasized that the mestizo nature of Mexico proves that it is possible to accept one another without giving in to confrontation.

In their call for days of prayer, the bishops implored, “the protection of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to whom we have consecrated our country, and the intercession of Holy Mary of Guadalupe, Queen of Mexico, that unity of Mexico may be maintained.”
