CWN Editor's Note: With one city “submerged under a wave of bullets,” Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes of Managua “addressed an appeal to the West, and to Catholics in particular, calling for the Ortega government to be reminded to show respect.” As he asked for prayers, he added, “Please put pressure on the government, urging it to show respect for the bishops, the priests, and the population.”
