Mexican bishop decries extortion attempts

Catholic World News - December 09, 2013

The bishop of Toluca, a city of 800,000 in south-central Mexico, denounced recent extortion attempts against the Church.

“We too are part of the people, and we as people also receive threats and attempts of extortion,” said Bishop Francisco Javier Chavolla Ramos in a statement sent to the Fides news agency. “We have faith and we do not fear other people’s wickedness. We must express our identity, we are different, and do not even need to leave everything in the hands of authorities.”
