Spanish dioceses to unite in prayer against terrorism
Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco, Archbishop of Madrid, announced this week that all the dioceses throughout Spain will begin a prayer campaign to stop terrorism in this country.
In a recent message to faithful the Spanish Cardinal said that all the Bishops have agreed to encourage in every diocese "the inclusion of prayers in every liturgical celebration, specially in Masses, for the ceasing of all terrorist activities and in favor of peace".
"Terrorism", the Cardinal stressed, "is an activity that vilely attempts against the most sacred and inviolable right of individuals: the right to life".
Terrorism also damages "truth and the freedom of persons and groups, and hence attempts against the fundaments of social coexistence", the Archbishop further said.
