During the celebration of All Saints Day, Archbishop Antonio Moreno Casamitjana of Concepción, Chile, reminded the faithful to always expect politicians to base their work on justice and truth.
During the Mass celebrated at the general cemetery, Archbishop Moreno said society expects of every politician a commitment to the truth, so that he or she will work for the good of the community.
The archbishop said every person, believer or non-believer, has the duty to seek out and respect the truth.
He added that those politicians for whom “the only thing that matters is power and who believe that truth is wherever there is power” are cause for concern, as well as those who act like Pilate, who showed little interest for knowing the truth.
