Nuncio to Venezuela: Dialogue needed for peace

(Vatican Radio) The Apostolic Nuncio to Venezuela, Archbishop Aldo Giordano, said that an informal dialogue is now taking place between the government, the opposition and civil society in the country.

“We must have the courage to take a step forward, to advance this dialogue, because the people want peace and deserve peace,” he said on Sunday.  “Dialogue is the only way.”

He was speaking at “Nuestra Señora de La Candelaria” Church, which was marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ven. José Gregorio Hernández, whose cause for beatification is being promoted by the Venezuelan bishops.

"He is a figure which unifies the country,” Archbishop Giordano said. “He is a figure for all the people.”
