Mexican Archbishop says cultural crisis marginalizes God from all human activity

.- Archbishop Hector Gonzalez Martinez of Durango denounced this week the cultural, moral and spiritual crisis which is “bringing us down,” and which is marginalizing God from all human activities, whether they be political, social, economic, educational or communitarian.

The archbishop made his statements to hundreds of faithful gathered for the opening of the Archdiocesan Eucharistic Congress.

During his remarks, he also mentioned that today’s world is less humane plagued by violence, war, crime and other negative indicators.

God cannot remain marginalized from man’s labors. On the contrary, He should be included in order to strengthen the building of a more just, more united, more charitable and humane society in the face of current setbacks, he emphasized.

The archbishop assured that despite the fact that the meaning of love and peace has been broken, nevertheless it is possible to rebuild them “by seeking in the Eucharist the encouragement and the light to work in this modern world,” and therefore he called on the faithful to work to build up the Kingdom.

The also explained that the Eucharist is synonymous with peace and love, which are fundamental in building the Kingdom of Jesus.  He expressed his confidence, as well, that the Congress might foster a greater sense of charity.
