.- During the inauguration of the National Conference of Social Ministry in Mexico, Archbishop Sergio Obeso of Xalapa called on Mexicans to unite in building a different Mexico in which inequality does not exist. Noting that the bishops of the country also want to contribute to such an effort, Archbishop Obeso explained that the purpose of the Conference on Social Ministry is to develop a plan of action that will allow for the transformation of those situations and structures that lead almost 50 million Mexicans to experience “suffering, and in many cases, death.”

While he acknowledged that the Mexico is in a difficult period, he pointed out that the Church considers democratic development to be very important.  The Church has something to say, he noted, “from the perspective of the faith, about the serious inequalities and social and political deterioration in the country.”

“We desire to do our part to help build a different Mexico, where everyone is welcome, where there is an economy of service for all people, a policy centered on service and on the search for the common good, and not on the interests of certain individuals or groups; a society linked to respect and the promotion of human rights,” the archbishop said.
