Managua, Nicaragua, Feb 28, 2019 / 14:07 pm
The bishops of Nicaragua have asked the faithful to pray for the dialogue begun Wednesday between the government of President Daniel Ortega and the opposition Civic Alliance for Justice and Democracy.
In a message posted on social media, Cardinal Leopoldo José Brenes Solorzano of Managua asked the faithful to pray "so that we can make a sincere effort to authentically work for the common good, declining all selfish and sectarian interests, in the search for new horizons for Nicaragua."
These horizons, he indicated, must be founded "on respect for human rights, promoting a culture of dialogue and understanding. Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us."
On Facebook, the Nicaraguan bishops' conference joined this intention of Cardinal Brenes to the " 'Let us Pray Together' campaign.'" In addition, they asked Mary Immaculate to intercede for the country.
