CARACAS (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - En el comunicado los Obispos expresan su rechazo a la "usura, la corrupci贸n y la especulaci贸n. Somos conscientes de la necesidad de una lucha permanente contra ellas. El Santo Padre Francisco recientemente nos ha ilustrado acerca de la inmoralidad de todo tipo de corrupci贸n y de usura, cualquiera que sea su origen. Nos ha indicado que ning煤n padre de familia puede sentirse tranquilo al dar de comer a sus hijos un pan sucio fruto de la corrupci贸n".

"Nos preocupa, sin embargo, que muchas personas, en un arranque de euforia, crean que con la compra de algunos artefactos dom茅sticos han resuelto los grandes problemas que les aquejan. Igualmente, es inquietante que este clima de euforia pueda degenerar en actos de violencia y confrontaci贸n entre el mismo pueblo, que ser谩n dif铆ciles de controlar, y que todos debemos rechazar".

Los Obispos recordaron lo que ya dijeron en julio de este a艅o cuando se艅alaron que la situaci贸n econ贸mica del pa铆s "debe ser enfrentada fundamentalmente por las autoridades p煤blicas de com煤n acuerdo con empresarios, comerciantes e instituciones competentes. Se debe crear un clima de confianza que permita la reactivaci贸n de la producci贸n y el crecimiento socio-econ贸mico para el beneficio de la colectividad, especialmente de los m谩s pobres y vulnerables".

Tras recordar el llamado del Papa a buscar la reconciliaci贸n, los Prelado recuerdan que la "la Conferencia Episcopal Venezolana, independiente y pol铆ticamente aut贸noma, sigue comprometida con la propuesta de un di谩logo nacional".

Los Obispos animan a participar en las pr贸ximas elecciones municipales y destacaron que "el voto de cada uno de los ciudadanos es fundamental para la democracia".

Para concluir invocan "la protecci贸n de Nuestra Se艅ora. de Coromoto, Patrona de Venezuela, e impartimos con afecto nuestra bendici贸n a todos los que residen en nuestro pa铆s".
