Pope's collaborator calls 'not to look for conflict' between Church, Gov't
One of the Pope’s closest collaborators, Argentine Guillermo Karcher, said “there is no reason to look for causes for conflict” in the Episcopal document released last week about “violence” in Argentina.
“We immediatly talked about it [with Pope Francis], we analizad the Episcopal document," Karcher said and highlighted "the need to understand the language within its context".
"I think there is no reason to look for a cause for conflict,” he said in an interview with La Red Radio.
Karcher also pointed out that the document “is an invitation to national reconciliation” and “a call from Church to live together in a better way”.
The text, which states that Argentina is “sick with violence”, was analizad by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner last week, who criticised it for “wanting to reignite old battles”.
