ASIA/MYANMAR – Appeal of Catholic Bishops: peace and reconciliation through dialogue – Agenzia Fides

Today, the Catholic Bishops join the Ma Ha Na monks (see Fides, 20/2/2021) in warning the military: “Myanmar can be wiped off the world map if problems are not resolved in a peaceful manner”, and in reiterating with force “the call for reconciliation through dialogue”.
The Burmese Bishops conclude with these words: “The use of violence must stop urgently. Lessons from the past teach us that violence never wins. Seventy years after independence, those in power must invest in peace. The capital of peace will heal the nation. Let’s give peace a chance. Peace is possible and it is the only possible way”.
