The rector of the Basilica of Guadalupe exhorted Mexican politicians this week to create laws that defend life and said the Catholic Church would always be committed to defending human life.
During the Mass inaugurating the 5th Marian Congress, Msgr. Monroy prayed for the intercession of the Virgin of Guadalupe, asking that Mexican society would defend life from the moment of conception to natural death.
He also expressed support for the efforts by some government officials and by the National Commission for Human Rights to reverse the legalization of abortion. Regardless of the outcome, he said the Church would always campaign in favor of human life.
“No inconvenience can ever justify taking a life,” Msgr. Monroy said. He prayed that Mary of Guadalupe would protect the Mexican people from the difficult and sad situations they face, such as the crisis in morality, politics and the economy, as well as violence and the lack of security.
