CWN Editor's Note: The chairman of the US bishops’ international-justice-and-peace committee has issued a statement of support for the bishops of Venezuela “and with all those working for a peaceful and just solution to the crisis there.” Bishop Timothy Broglio called for the delivery of humanitarian aid to ease a “dire” situation in which thousands face malnutrition and disease. The regime of President Nicolas Maduro, which the Venezuelan bishops have condemned as illegitimate, is currently blocking international aid shipments.
