· The Pope invites the bishops of Mexico to promote a culture of encounter, dialogue and peace ·
Do not to let yourselves be intimidated by the powers of evil, but courageously stand beside those who suffer.
Pope Francis, quoting Benedict XVI, before his departure from Mexico on 26 March 2012, renewed his invitation for continued concern for “the victims of drug trafficking and the most vulnerable social groups” and to continue to defend human rights and the integral development of the human person. Everything, the Pope said, “that is an expression of the intimate connection between the proclamation of the Gospel and the search for the good of others, no doubt helps to give credibility to the Church and its relevance to the voice of the shepherd.”
The Pontiff spoke about the current situation of the country regarding the explosion of various forms of violence which involves young people. This is the fundamental reason for renewed progress in a spirit of true national harmony through “the culture of encounter, dialogue and peace”. The Holy Father also underlined the value of laypeople's commitment to the life of the Church, the importance of the attention paid to youth formation, as well as the commitment to defending the family.
