The Mexican bishops' conference published Tuesday the "Catholic Church's Plan for Building Peace," in an effort to "redouble efforts and united action" against corruption and violence racking the country.
The goal of this plan, the bishops explained Sept. 11, is to "make known and assist in the coordination of all peace building efforts" undertaken by both Catholic and civil society organizations.
The bishops stated that building peace in Mexico will be a "pivotal axis" in their work of pastoral social ministry.
The plan will thus promote continuity in the work of caring for victims, the "workshops for forgiveness and reconciliation" will be reactivated, and strategies will be developed to care for the victims of human trafficking throughout the country.
