Reconciliation in Bolivia a challenge for Holy Week, says archbishop

.- Archbishop Tito Solari of Cochabamba in Bolivia has called on young people to change the country, reminding them that the challenge of Holy Week is to achieve reconciliation in Bolivia.
 
During Palm Sunday Mass, the archbishop pointed out that young people are not plagued by resentment and vengeance and therefore he exhorted them to eradicate hatred, division and indifference from Bolivia, and he called on leaders to bring peace to the country through sincere dialogue.

He also denounced the crime of lynching that has become more common in the country, calling them “crimes against life.  “It also pains us to see many children on the streets and to see them suffering because their parents are away,” he said.

Archbishop Solari also lamented “the great division that exists among us for political and ideological reasons, for personal interest and other evils such as moral decadence.”  He called on Bolivians to put all of this “before the altar in prayer to God.”
