CNA Staff, Jan 7, 2021 / 06:01 pm (CNA).- The Secretary General of the Mexican Bishops Conference made a call on behalf of the Mexican episcopate for peace to prevail in the United States.

In a tweet from his official account, Bishop Alfonso Miranda Guardiola said that the Mexican bishops “regret the events and the deaths occurred at the United States Capitol,” and added that “democracy and the rule of law need to prevail over the acts of violence.”

“To the dead and infected by the pandemic, let’s not add more victims of riots, insurrections and wars,” he said.

Mexican media has been heavily covering the events at the US Capitol and the rocky transition of power from President Donald Trump to President-elect Joe Biden. With a heavy dependency on the U.S. economy and international politics, events in America have become regular top news in the country for the last two months.

  1. Yes, but the US is very dependent on Mexico and unfortunately, Mexico is more so a victim of US corruption, as drugs, wage slave workers, and victims of the sex slave trade in the USA.. More humans are held as slaves in the US today, than the Atlantic slave trade times. The nations food production is very dependent on immigrate workers, as todays US children have near no work ethic, to work in the fields. The harvest is great, but the workers are few.
    Early Catholic schools would have given a high regard to work ethics…
    Today all assumed Catholic leaders talk about is denial of others communion, abortion of children that nobody want or have any care to attend to the children that already exist in the US… Education is at the bottom of US priorities today, with murder, genocide of children in places as Yemen is top US priority. Supported in the silence of by deemed Catholic leaders.
