On feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, faithful pray for justice and end to violence in Mexico

.- On the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12, the rector of the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City, Msgr. Diego Monroy Ponce, prayed to the Mother of God for her protection over Mexico and all Mexicans amidst the crisis of violence that the country is currently experiencing.

According to the Archdiocese of Mexico City’s news service, Msgr. Monroy told a packed Basilica, “We want, Mother, a Mexico that is more just, more unified and more democratic; a Mexico at peace and free of violence, where living together in peace and the seeking of these values are the motor that drives this country, this continent.”

“Today more than ever, Dear Lady, we set our eyes on you and invoke you. Look upon our country; it seems to be falling to pieces, it is breaking apart in our hands and we do almost nothing about it,” he prayed.

Msgr. Monroy went on to say, “Our streets are not secure, we live in fear, we are afraid to go out, to play with our children in the parks, so see our young people fall prey to drugs, violence, corruption, organized crime, kidnappings, and so many other evils that afflict us.”
