Nuncio highlights “points of convergence” between Holy See and Venezuelan government

.- After a meeting with Venezuelan Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel, the new Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela, Archbishop Giacinto Berloco, said there were “many points of convergence and many prospects for collaboration” between the government and the Holy See. During the meeting, Archbishop Berloco communicated the greetings of Pope Benedict XVI to the Venezuelan government.  Later, he told reporters his mission was “to strengthen the relations between the Church in Venezuela and the Holy See,” as well as with the country’s leaders.

Moreover, he said he hoped “to be a facilitator” when issues need to be addressed or situations improved.  “It is very good that this understanding and mutual collaboration exist,” he added.  Archbishop Berloco also noted the improvement in relations between the Holy See and Venezuela in recent months due to the naming of a new Venezuelan ambassador to the Vatican, Ivan Rincon.

On the other hand, the archbishop recalled that differences between the two parties should be resolved through dialogue. “The parties involved should enter into discussions so that a just solution can be found and understanding be maintained. Collaboration is important for the people of a country,” he stated.
