Catholic Bishops Condemn Persecution of the Christians in Nicaragua

A news article from Breitbart reports that Catholic bishops in Nicaragua have condemned the persecution of Christians in the country. The bishops have expressed concern over the treatment of Christians by the government and its supporters, including incidents of violence, intimidation, and discrimination.

The bishops have called on the international community to pay attention to the situation and to take action to support the persecuted Christians. The article highlights the growing religious tensions in Nicaragua and the ongoing human rights crisis in the country. The situation remains ongoing and it remains to be seen how the government and the international community will respond to the bishops’ call to action.

Bishops from around the world have condemned the heightened persecution of Christians by Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega.

Following last Thursday’s deportation of 222 of Ortega’s political opponents and the sentencing of Matagalpa Bishop Rolando Álvarez to 26 years and 4 months in prison, many bishops have raised their voices in protest of Nicaragua’s escalating human rights violations.

On Saturday, the president of the Latin American Bishops’ Council (CELAM), Peruvian Archbishop Miguel Cabrejos, condemned the “unjust” imprisonment of Bishop Álvarez and other priests, promising prayers for their swift liberation.

“In faith we are comforted by the words of the Gospel: ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted because they live according to God’s plan, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven,’” Archbishop Cabrejos wrote in a message of solidarity.
