Headline: AMERICA/NICARAGUA – New intimidations denounced against the Church, the unity of the people to build a new Nicaragua
Managua – The Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Managua, Archbishop Carlos Avilés, denounced the intimidation against the faithful by the state: “Members of the police take note of the plate of the cars of the faithful only for the fact that they go to mass in a parish, is ridiculous. But the Church had this experience of persecution already in the 80s. We, despite this, do not stop in our work and in our mission, to evangelize and be next to the people. Since April 2018, when the people peacefully protested against the ‘Seguro Social’ reform and were brutally stopped by the dictatorship, the Catholic Church once again stood on the side of the weakest” .
