Venezuela’s bishops appeal for reconciliation, dialogue

Catholic World News - February 27, 2014

Amid continued civil strife in Venezuela, the nation’s bishops pleaded for dialogue and reconciliation.

“The students and all the people have the right to protest as stated in our Constitution, but it is always necessary to ensure that protest never degenerates into violence,” the bishops added, according to a Fides news service report. “Police forces and the military have the duty to respect human rights.”

“The Word of God reminds us that we are all brothers and sisters,” the bishops added. “The Church in Venezuela, through the bishops, is in favor of dialogue and calls on all the men and women of Venezuela to show the world that the teaching of Jesus the Lord leads us to become builders of authentic peace.”
