Fides Service REPORT- Cardinal Julio Terrazas Sandoval has urged government authorities to set aside punishment and to ask God for wisdom to distinguish between good and evil. The Archbishop of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, in Bolivia, in his homily during the Mass celebrated in the Cathedral of Santa Cruz stressed the importance that people start to ask for the conversion of the heart, to obtain a new heart that is able to accept and practice the teachings of Jesus Christ.
This is what is said in a statement sent to Fides: "We hope that these words can give us a new heart: those who are in government need it, who should ask for the wisdom to distinguish between good and evil, and not spend their time asking only for punishment and persecution for some", said the Cardinal. In this sense, he said that it is necessary that everyone starts a process of conversion with the help of God, so that the heart can also show the reflection of consciousness.
" We all have to say to the Lord to give us the wisdom of the heart, to give us an intelligent heart, a heart that is in fact a reflection of our consciousness and our consciousness to be connected with the truth", said Cardinal Terrazas Sandoval. It is necessary that all people begin to distinguish good from evil and that everyone can draw from the depths of his being the strength to face the problems that life presents.
