Peruvian cardinal calls on Catholics to make Christ present through word and example

.- In his radio program, Dialogue of Faith, the Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne, invited the faithful of Peru to make Christ present with their lives, in order to live out “the great message of the Ascension: here and now Jesus is with you.”

“Through us Christ wishes to offer himself to others,” the cardinal said. “If by my word and example I bring you into contact with Christ, he becomes present again in your soul,” he added in this week's program.

In referring to the charges of sexual abuse filed against a missionary Belgian priest living in Peru, “who will have to answer to his bishop and to the law,” Cardinal Cipriani underscored that there are “thousands of priests, nuns and laypeople who dedicate their entire lives to caring for children and working wonders for them, for the infirm and for the poor.”

“However, we must speak clearly about these things, with total transparency, total truth, and at the same time, with respect for our mother who is the Church,” he concluded.
