Congress on laity calls for building up of common good in Argentina

.- Participants in the Congress on Laity 2005-2010, which took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, announced their commitment to launch a new cultural impulse in the country, based on mutual respect and the common good. In a statement issued by the Department on the Laity of the Bishops’ Conference of Argentina, the participants exhorted their fellow Argentineans to be part of the transformation of the country into a new nation centered on the recovery of the sense of the common good, so that the scandals of exclusion, hunger and corruption could be ended.

“We are aware that in the past we have not met our responsibilities; therefore, we renew the call for forgiveness issued by the Church in Cordoba in 2000. Experience commits us to reaching out and opening the ears of so many who did not feel called, they added.

Lastly, the participants of the Congress invited their fellow Argentineans to see the country’s upcoming bicentennial as a starting point down a more inclusive and participative path illuminated by the Social Teachings of the Church.
