CARDINAL RIVERA URGES FLOCK TO FIGHT RELIGIOUS IGNORANCE
    MEXICO CITY, 22 (NE) Within the framework of the First Centenary of the Pontifical Crowning of Our Lady of Health, Cardinal Norberto Rivera, Archbishop of Mexico City, denounced the great illness that is spreading among society, that is, the culture of death, through murders, abortions, perverse addictions, among other evils.

    The Mexican Cardinal recalled those who are ill in the body, but also warned against greater illnesses, such as ambition and materialism. He also warned against the religious ignorance of Catholic people. "Sects need only to throw their nets. They easily catch Catholics that ignore their religion." In addition, there is the problem of idols that search to "displace faith and foreign life models that pretend the destruction of the Catholic tradition of the Mexican people," he stated.

    Before this reality, and considering our own "mistakes, insecurities, mistaken apathies, condescension, and also disobediences and aggressions," the Cardinal raised a prayer and urged all the present to be coherent in their Christian life, in order to transmit the health that through the intercession of Our Lady of Health we obtain from the Lord.
