“We need to know who to forgive,” says archbishop about Guatemalan bishop's killers


The Archbishop of Guatemala City, Cardinal Rodolfo Quezada Toruno renewed his call this week that investigators solve the murder of Auxiliary Bishop Juan Gerardi, who was killed ten years ago.

“The Church is willing to forgive, but first we need to know who to forgive,” the cardinal said before a packed crowd at a Mass he celebrated this past Sunday at the Cathedral.

The murder, he said, is “still an open wound for the Guatemalan church.”  Bishop Gerardi was killed on April 26, 1998, outside his residence.
