At the conclusion of Sunday Mass, Cardinal Norberto Rivera of Mexico City said that despite the problems and the scandals, “in Mexico things are moving ahead.”
In the wake of corruption scandals and high-level disagreements between government officials, the Cardinal said, “This has been going on now for several weeks, but fortunately in Mexico things keep moving forward despite these political controversies. I think these experiences have made the Mexican people more mature.”
“A few years ago, when something like this would happen, the stock market would crash, the peso would be devalued, investors would pull out, but fortunately thinks keep going forward despite the scandals,” added the Cardinal.
Cardinal Rivera exhorted Mexicans serve others and to seek holiness. “The most important thing is to have examples of holiness. We have been called to this vocation, no matter what we do in life; no matter what we do the most important thing is that we become saints,” he said.
