Cardinal laments Honduran moral crisis

Catholic World News - September 13, 2011

Amid burgeoning drug-related violence in Honduras, Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga has lamented the moral crisis afflicting the nation.

“The crisis is big, and not simply economic, but moral,” he said. “When we lose respect for life, when for any reason, other peoples lives are taken away, then we are acting in the wrong.”

The prelate also urged government officials to remember the “common good, according to which you cannot think only of individual good, but that of the entire community. When the authorities are elected to govern a country, they should make big efforts to be of service to everyone.”
