Brazilian bishop denounces spike violence among young people

Konigstein, Nov. 04, 2005 (CNA) - During a visit to the international headquarters of Aid to the Church in Need, Bishop Pedro Jose Conti of Macapa, Brazil, said, “Many young people dream about an easy life. They turn their back on the Church and abandon healthy social relationships. As a consequence we have a troubling increase in abortions, drug addiction and violence, including suicide.”

In order to counteract the situation, Bishop Conti maintained, “The Church should find new ways of making it possible for young people to experience the faith. Likewise she should work to help young people embrace ethical principals and Christian values.”
