.- Several Mexican bishops have criticized efforts to keep faith out of the public arena and restrict it to private life.

Bishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago, president of the Bishops’ Conference of Mexico, praised the remarks of a top Mexican official, who said that a sense of religion needed to be recovered in order to give meaning to ethical values.

“This official said that ethics must be based on religion if they are to have a solid foundation, because values such as honesty and fidelity are anchored there,” he said.

Bishop Rabago said it was completely unacceptable to limit the mission and work of the Church to simply preaching in the abstract, without any link to historical realities. 

In Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera noted the need for the Church to evangelize all areas of life saying, “No matter how much they tell us we should stay in the sacristy, we will not cease from doing so.”
