The Archbishop of Toledo, Cardinal Antonio Canizares, said on Sunday the Catholic Church does not impose its teachings, but neither does she accept the imposition of secularism and laicism.
“When the Catholic Church proclaims God she does not impose, but rather proposes, offers,” the cardinal said. “We ask that laicism not be imposed either,” he added.
During his homily at Sunday Mass in the Cathedral of Toledo, Cardinal Canizares also pointed out, “We need to not keep quiet, to not be so self-conscious, we can’t turn back, we can’t be ashamed of proclaiming Jesus Christ and proclaiming and calling on others to accept God as the center of their lives.”
“This proclamation is not an imposition, so stop the gibberish. When they tells us we trying to impose we say, we’re not imposing anything, we are offering.”
“What is being imposed is laicism, which should not be imposed on anybody, because it brings destruction, rupture, and the breaking of man,” he said.
