The Venezuelan Episcopal Conference (CEV) recently published an exhort in which it highlighted the message left by His Holiness, Pope Francis during his visit to Latin America. It encourages us to assimilate adversity with courage, hope and responsibility.
I would like to share some of the concepts I think aptly summarize the spirit of his message:
- We are all needed to reconstruct Venezuela and to do so, we need to meet as brothers and sisters and look for solutions together.
- We all contribute to creating the Venezuela we strive for.
- Venezuela is one.
- All Venezuelans want a country that loves peace, promotes family unity and progress.
- We need a wholehearted desire to overcome difficulties to create an environment favoring agreements, dialog and reconciliation throughout our country.
