Caracas, Venezuela, May 16, 2013 / 11:16 am
Reporter Macky Arenas of the Catholic Lay Report said the serious food shortage in Venezuela could lead to a lack of wine and hosts for the celebration of Mass.
Arenas explained that the shortage in the country is due to "the lack of raw materials."
"This is not a country known for the production of wine, and the only national company has told the bishops it will not be able to meet demand," she said in statements to CNA.
Officials in Venezuela are warning that the situation will not improve in the short term, she added.
