.- 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.
âWhen the Catholic Church proclaims God she does not impose, but rather proposes, offers,â the cardinal said. âWe ask that laicism not be imposed either,â he added.
During his homily at Sunday Mass in the Cathedral of Toledo, Cardinal Canizares also pointed out, âWe need to not keep quiet, to not be so self-conscious, we canât turn back, we canât be ashamed of proclaiming Jesus Christ and proclaiming and calling on others to accept God as the center of their lives.â
âThis proclamation is not an imposition, so stop the gibberish. When they tells us we trying to impose we say, weâre not imposing anything, we are offering.â
âWhat is being imposed is laicism, which should not be imposed on anybody, because it brings destruction, rupture, and the breaking of man,â he said.
