With violence in Mexico on the rise, the Catholic Church has a role to play in achieving lasting peace, said a priest of Mexico City.
In his recent column entitled “Children and Young People without a Future,” published in the Mexican ContraRéplica newspaper, Fr. Hugo Valdemar addressed the subject.
“Federal and state governments have been totally overwhelmed by the violence which like a horseman from the Apocalypse has been unleashed in the country,” said the priest, who is the canon penitentiary of the archdiocese.
“It won't be possible to combat this evil except by uniting the forces of government, the Church and civil society.”
