Examination of conscience
· In San Cristóbal de las Casas the Pope calls for forgiveness to be asked of the indigenous communities ·
“Your people have been misunderstood and excluded from society”, Pope Francis told the indigenous communities on Monday, 15 February. “Some have considered your values, culture and traditions to be inferior. Others, intoxicated by power, money and market trends, have stolen your lands or contaminated them. How sad this is!”. The Holy Father celebrated Mass for this community at San Cristóbal de Las Casas, in his homily, he said: “How worthwhile it would be for each of us to examine our conscience and learn to say, 'forgive me!', 'forgive me, brothers and sisters!' Today’s world, ravaged as it is by a throwaway culture, needs you!”.
