.- Pope Benedict XVI has called on Bolivian officials to shed light on the attack against the president of the Bolivian Bishops’ Conference, Cardinal Julio Terrazas Sandoval.

According to Vatican Radio, the Pope made his request through the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone.

“Any act of violence, committed with the sole intention of harming, damaging or intimidating others is always reproachable and unworthy of the human person and profoundly contrary to the Christian values of love, communion and mutual respect,” the message to Bolivian officials said, referring to the April 15 attack on the Cardinal’s residence.

Vatican Radio reported that the Holy Father, through Cardinal Bertone, called on Bolivian officials to “shed light on the attack that Cardinal Terrazas suffered.”

Benedict XVI also expressed his closeness to Cardinal Terrazas and asked the Lord that “paths of reconciliation and sincere harmony be sought” in Bolivia.
