Mexican prelate calls for Christmas truce in drug wars
Catholic World News - December 15, 2010
Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez of Guadalajara, Mexico has called upon drug traffickers to cease their violence, especially during the Christmas season.
Reacting to a shocking episode in which 10 people were killed by gunmen who fired into a congregation during Mass on December 12, the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Cardinal Sandoval encouraged the faithful to defend themselves against drug-related violence. He denounced the perpetrators, especially for their show of contempt for a religious ceremony.
“They ought to at least respect sacred things,” the cardinal said. “They are already committing serious enough crimes.”
