Colombian cardinal backs march for peace

Catholic World News - April 09, 2013

Cardinal Rubén Salazar Gómez of Bogota has expressed his support of a massive march for peace that is taking place in Colombia’s capital on April 9.

“One of the serious problems we have had in Colombia is that this issue has been the subject of empty discussions and not a serious policy, because authentic policy is the construction of the common good,” he said. “If Colombia must have a common goal, this should be peace, because we have never had it. We have always lived a story full of blood, of victims.”

Church bells will ring throughout the nation at noon in support of the march.
