Stop the violence, or we’ll all be destroyed, warns Bolivian archbishop

.- Archbishop Tito Solari of Cochabamba, Bolivia, has called on Bolivians to reflect and to seek out paths of reconciliation and dialogue in order to stop violence, because otherwise, “it will destroy us all.”

In a recent message, the archbishop referred to the latest acts of violence carried out against people with disabilities and police officers and to confrontations between students and parents.

“We must put a stop to the violence or it will destroy us all,” said Archbishop Solari.

“Our reflection is focused in a particular way on the confrontation that is occurring between students and parents. Here we see that the culture of violence in which we are submerged has penetrated into the heart of the new generations and could even wound the family itself, the fundamental cell of our society,” the archbishop warned.

For this reason, he called for calm in order to reflect and “to seek out paths of reconciliation and dialogue.”  “Let us leave aside offensive and violent language. Let us avoid images of confrontation. Let us not be overcome by evil, but rather overcome evil with good,” the archbishop stated.
