Cardinal Celestino Aós Braco of Santiago de Chile said in a Te Deum prayer service marking the country’s independence that neither violence nor corruption will build Chile.
The prelate encouraged living centered on Christ to bear good fruit and working together for the common good.
The cardinal gave a homily at the ecumenical Te Deum that was held Sept. 18 in the Santiago Metropolitan Cathedral in the presence of the president of Chile, Gabriel Boric, and his ministers of state.
Chile’s Fiestas Patrias marks the anniversary of the first meeting of the country’s post-colonial government in 1810.
