Mexican priests must resist growing efforts to build a society without the guidance of the Gospel, said Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera of Mexico City.
“The Church exists to be the light of the world,” he told an Oct. 5-6 assembly of priests.
There is a temptation for priests to focus only on liturgical, sacramental and internal Church matters, Cardinal Rivera said. But the Church has a duty for the evangelization of all “temporal realities” of Mexican culture and society.
“We have a great responsibility to form others … to imbue our culture with Gospel values,” he said.
