.- The Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, said this week the Catholic Church is not at war with religious sects or other religions and he recalled that the Church’s mission is to preach the Gospel.

In a meeting with priests of his archdiocese, the cardinal explained that “the Catholic Church must remain firm, evangelistic and testimonial.  We are not at war with anyone, neither with the sects nor with other confessions; our obligation is to preach the Gospel.”

Likewise, he lamented that on occasions people separate themselves from God because of they are materially well-off.  “It’s a cultural change of our times in which people see Christ and his Church with indifference,” the cardinal said.

He insisted that the Church’s priority is the formation of the laity and the promotion of priestly vocations, as the future of the Church in Mexico depends on it.  “Our mission is to educate the laity in diverse areas and fields, so that the Church’s permanent mission may be present everywhere,” he added.
