BUENOS AIRES (ACI) - En la noche del viernes 22 de noviembre, d铆a de la memoria de santa Cecilia, virgen y m谩rtir, el Prelado dijo que "como los Macabeos, tras la profanaci贸n griega del templo de Jersual茅n, venimos para purificar el Templo y pedimos al Se艅or que tenga piedad por los que atacaron a su Madre y les d茅 la gracia de la conversi贸n. Pedimos tambi茅n por nosotros mismos, para que podamos purificarnos una y otra vez con una vida santa".

A continuaci贸n, comentando el Evangelio del d铆a, en el pasaje donde Jes煤s echa del Templo a los mercaderes, el Obispo advirti贸 que "el l谩tigo de Jes煤s es, tambi茅n, una gran advertencia. Siempre podemos correr el mismo riesgo de profanar, con nuestras acciones, el Templo. Debemos, por lo tanto, ser vigilantes y darle al Se艅or el verdadero culto".

Mons. Baisi advirti贸 sobre la persecuci贸n a la Iglesia: "nos duele el coraz贸n -enfatiz贸- comprobar c贸mo se atac贸 a la Madre de Jes煤s, Madre nuestra y Madre de la Iglesia. Vivimos en un mundo en el que la Iglesia es perseguida: hay persecuci贸n medi谩tica, en las leyes, en las escuelas. Nosotros, en la Argentina, vivimos todav铆a en una supuesta libertad religiosa. El cat贸lico sabe, de cualquier modo, que siendo fiel a Cristo siempre sufrir谩 cruces".

Antes de la bendici贸n final, el Arzobispo de La Plata, Mons. H茅ctor Aguer, manifest贸 que esto "debe darnos una serena confianza en el Se艅or. La reparaci贸n pasa por la entrega de nuestra vida a Dios, cada uno en el lugar propio. Que esto nos ayude a acercarnos m谩s a Mar铆a".

El prelado pidi贸, igualmente, el pronto esclarecimiento del vand谩lico acto. Seg煤n trascendi贸, los autores habr铆an sido identificados por c谩maras de seguridad instaladas en la zona.

El Arzobispado de La Plata ha reclamado, sistem谩ticamente, a las autoridades provinciales y municipales por las pintas ofensivas que hacen desconocidos en la Catedral, en el Santuario de Schoenstatt, y en la propia curia arzobispal, entre otros sitios. Han solicitado adem谩s m谩s iluminaci贸n y seguridad, de modo particular en las horas de las celebraciones lit煤rgicas.
