CARDINAL URGES TO COMMITMENT WITH MISSIONARY ACTIVITY

        MEXICO CITY, 26 (NE) Mexican Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez called Catholics to a deeper compromise and conscience of the Church's evangelizing mission. Reflecting during Sunday's homily about missionary activity, the Archbishop of Guadalajara warned about a conformist attitude visible among many faithful, highlighting the need to proclaim the Gospel and the teachings of the Church. He also invited Catholics to study and learn more about their own faith and identity.

        Archbishop Sandoval said as well during his homily that passivity in missionary zeal was being used by protestant missionaries to reach Catholic homes with more energy. He also criticized several mass media organizations that encouraged a culture opposed to evangelical values. This, said Cardinal Sandoval, must encourage Catholics to increase their witness of the Gospel and foster missionary activity.
