.- The committee, Pastors United for Mexico recently sent a letter to the Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, calling the attacks on Pope Benedict XVI an attempt to “harm the worldwide image and influence of the clergy.”
The letter said that over time, “the battles against everything that is deemed as faith” will continue against not only the Catholic Church, but Christianity in general.
However, it said, these attacks will not harm Christianity because “the strength of the churches is real, as they are not based on the strength of the leadership of a man but on the Rock of faith who is Jesus Christ.”
The evangelical pastors said that despite these attacks, the followers of Christ will continue to grow in number.
Signed by Pastor Eduardo Rangel Hernandez, the letter also reiterated the importance of the defense of life and the family. It called on the faithful to pray that “'all Christians,’ might be clothed in God’s presence together with our families, in order to remain faithful in the life He gives us.”
