At this dramatic time in Nicaragua, we must not give in to
provocations, but rather, work for dialogue and peace. This was the focus
of a message by Cardinal Leopoldo Brenes,
Archbishop of Managua, during a Mass celebrated in Jinotepe, a city whose
parish was completely destroyed by the paramilitary forces who have been
supporting the government since 9 July.

respond to evil”. Hate and violence “can only be overcome by the love that
Christ gives us”.Bishop Carlos Enrique
