Mexican bishops exhort government to intervene in Michoacán
CWN - October 31, 2013
The Mexican episcopal conference has issued a statement urging “federal, state, and municipal authorities” to take “prompt and effective action” against organized crime in the state of Michoacán.
Lamenting the “injustice of kidnappings, abductions, murders” and extortion, the bishops said that “even the pastoral care of the faithful is being affected.”
“Invoking the help of God and the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, we pledge to continue to work together in the pastoral care of victims of violence and the reconstruction of the social fabric, promoting a culture of respect for the rule of law and peace,” the bishops concluded.
