Mexican bishops pledge to provide guidance during coming elections

.- The President of the Bishops’ Conference of Mexico, Bishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago, said this week the role of the bishops in the coming elections would be to provide guidance and prayer so that the results would allow the country to move forward.
“The Church wants to promote dialogue and civic participation by orienting, guiding and praying so that the next elections reinforce the country’s trust in its leaders, democracy be strengthened, the quality of political debate be elevated and that Mexicans move forward in building the country that we all wish for,” Bishop Rabago stated during a press conference.
He also warned that recent scandals in the country could lead to greater skepticism about politics among young people.  This creates “the sensation that we are living in a country in which there is little hope of bringing about change through democratic means,” the bishop maintained.
