.- The bishops of the Spanish region of Catalonia, who gathered July 10-12, called on school officials to respect and enter into dialogue with “the just demands” of those who conscientiously object to the controversial Education for Citizenship class.

In a statement published on its website, the bishops also said they were in full agreement with the statements about the class issued by the Executive Committee of the Bishops’ Conference of Spain.

During their meeting the bishops also discussed the upcoming beatification of 498 Spanish martyrs, “most of them diocesan and religious priests, who gave their lives in testimony to the faith during the 1930s, in Spain, among whom were a number of Catalonian martyrs.”

“The bishops thank God for the magnificent testimony of holiness that these Christians gave in times of persecution, as they gave their lives for love of Christ, they offered their forgiveness to those who took their lives, and they were bearers of reconciliation and peace,” they said.
