Spanish mayor calls on Christians in government to act consistent with their faith

.- The mayor of La Coruña, Spain, and President of the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces, Francisco Vazquez, is calling on government officials who are Christians to act “consistent with their faith.” During a ceremony renewing the city’s dedication to Our Lady of the Rosary, Vazquez prayed that the Blessed Mother “grant to those of us in government positions to always act under the guidance of the four cardinal virtues—prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance—united, in the case of Christians, with a coherence of faith.”

During the traditional rededication, Mayor Vazquez also prayed for Mary’s intercession for the city’s various construction projects, programs for the elderly, assistance for immigrants, and the fight against terrorism, “which not only kills people but also freedoms.”

Archbishop Julian Barro of Santiago de Compostela presided at a Mass marking the rededication.  During his homily, he exhorted the faithful to live consistent with their faith, which has “decisive consequences for the development of the human person and for the configuration of society.”

He called on those present “to be committed to the common good,” which in his opinion means “favoring and protecting the fundamental rights of the person which come from natural law and are recognized by the correct use of reason.”
