Pilgrimage for peace and reconciliation in Mexico

.- Auxiliary Bishop Jose Trinidad Gonzalez Rodriguez of Guadalajara, Mexico, made a special plea to Our Lady of Zapopan this week to “work a miracle again and bring reconciliation, justice, and peace to the nation.”  The country is still attempting to recover from a highly disputed presidential elections, which were held in July.

Bishop Rodriguez noted that in the past, “Our Lady of Zapopan brought about the non-violent pacification of the peoples of Jalisco and the inhabitants of what is today Nochistlan, Zacatecas. She brought about reconciliation and peace.”
 
“That is what we want to ask that she grants all Mexico, a time of peace.  But peace has conditions.  There will be no peace without justice.  The new name of peace, John Paul II said, is justice.  And justice is prepared when we embark upon the path of reconciliation. Reconciliation demands forgiveness. Reconciliation means and demands humility,” the bishop noted.

The bishop also noted that Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniquez of Guadalajara has offered a special intention for the celebrations of Our Lady of Zapopan: “Praying for reconciliation, justice and peace in Mexico.”
