Vatican City, Mar 15, 2012 / 12:50 pm
Bishops must strengthen their bonds of unity in order to evangelize the world, San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller said in a March 15 homily at the tomb of Saint Peter.
“In this work towards New Evangelization, our unity is an imperative,” the archbishop told over 20 of his fellow bishops from Texas and surrounding regions.
On March 15, they began their “ad limina” visit to discuss the state of their local churches with Pope Benedict XVI and Vatican officials.
“In the supercharged environment in which we minister today, my brothers, let us not allow others to divide us – to set us against one another,” the Archbishop of San Antonio told his fellow participants in the pilgrimage to Rome.
