Costa Rican bishops ask government to teach children to be builders of peace

.- Bishop José Francisco Ulloa of Limón and President of the Costa Rica Bishops Conference asked the government this week to expand the country’s education curriculum to include material that will instruct students on how to help build world peace. During the Mass for World Peace which was celebrated in the Cathedral of San José, Bishop Ulloa said that only a people conscious of human rights and responsibilities can help consolidate systems of peace, since “rights are an indispensable tool for peace and without them peace cannot exist.”

Bishop Ulloa explained that Costa Ricans who are educated in peace will be able to help in the just distribution of resources so that everyone can enjoy a higher quality of life and not give in to corrupt behavior, which erodes democratic institutions.

The bishop made his comments in the presence of various government officials and accompanied by other Costa Rican bishops who gathered together in the Cathedral to pray for world peace.
