Nicaraguan bishop laments clashes between government, rebels
Catholic World News - October 30, 2013
Increasing conflict between the government of President Daniel Ortega and rebels has led some of the faithful to stay away from churches out of fear, the bishop of a northern Nicaraguan diocese told the Fides news agency.
“Especially young people are afraid of ending up in the midst of some clash that could start off in the area,” said Bishop Carlos Enrique Herrera Gutiérrez of Jinotega. “We are inviting the faithful to pray, to trust in the Lord so that he helps us. Weapons, violence, war, bring sadness and cause death, and this is not what we want.”
