.- During a Mass for members of the judicial system, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne of Lima encouraged judges to acknowledge Christ, as only in this way can they seek “truth and justice, without being dominated by vengeance and resentment.”

The cardinal made his comments during Mass at the Cathedral of Lima on May 12 attended by Peru’s Attorney General, Gladys Echaiz Ramos, as well as other justice officials.

Cardinal Cipriani said judges must be make honesty the hallmark of their work so that they will always seek out “the truth, the defense of the law and of the rights of citizens,” along with the right to life.

In order to accomplish this task, the cardinal called on attorneys to “ask God to strengthen them in the truth so that they may fulfill their duties, especially during the difficult times affecting our country.”

“Strengthen us in the truth, calm our spirits, purify our intentions, unite our families, enlighten those of us committed to making Peru a more unified, just and honest family,” the cardinal said.
