.- The Director of the Holy Seeâs Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, has condemned the attack on the home of the president of the Bishopsâ Conference of Bolivia, Cardinal Julio Terrazas Sandoval, and said it was a âgrave actâ that reveals âunacceptable violence.â
âThis episode manifests an attitude that is prone to violence that harms respect for freedom and therefore, we unite ourselves with the bishops of Bolivia in the most firm condemnation,â the priest said.
Speaking to the Notimex news agency, Father Lombardi said the attack was a grave act. âOf course we manifest all of our solidarity with Cardinal Terrazas for this act of unacceptable violence,â he stated.
On Wednesday morning a bomb exploded at the entrance to the cardinalâs residence in Santa Cruz, damaging the premises and neighboring buildings. The cardinal was recovering from surgery at the time at another location.
