.- Bishop Claudio Gimenez of Caacupe said the Church in Paraguay would officially respond to the attacks on the Church last week by Paraguayan President Nicanor Duarte.

Bishop Gimenez said the executive committee of the bishops’ conference “promised to study the case and issue a response. I don’t want to interfere with that and I think it is the right thing to do at this time.”  “It’s important the executive committee takes the action it feels is necessary,” he added.

Asked about the remaining portion of the president’s term in office, Bishop Gimenez said, “We hope that at least in this last part of his term he will take advantage of the time and fulfill his promises.”

“There are many things he promised and have not yet been carried out. He should keep his word, that is very important for our people to keep believing; otherwise, promises are made, they are not kept, and that leads to much frustration and discouragement, and it unleashes a lack of belief and trust in authorities,” Bishop Gimenez said.
