Church calls for dialogue a few days before the arrival of the Pope
The Catholic Church hopes that the visit of Pope Francis will reassure the Ecuadorian community by the marches against the government.
Monday a lunch was held in the Banquet Hall of the Government House, hosted by President Rafael Correa, attended by church members, ministers and the leadership of the Armed Forces, in order to refine the last details of the Pope’s visit to Quito and Guayaquil, on 5 and 8 July.
Fausto Trávez, head of the Ecuadorian Episcopal Conference, said he hopes the Pope’s visit reassures the country by his message of peace, joy, justice and good.
And about the protests that took place against the government by the inheritance and capital gains bills, Travez announced that the Conference will release on Thursday a new public statement to Ecuadorians to promote peace and a call for dialogue.
